We went in for my routine OB check-up and not-so-routine sonogram this afternoon. The sonogram was a result of measuring big last time and I’ve been on a slow burn the past two weeks fretting over something being wrong with Zuzu. My worry has only been compounded by what seemed like increasingly less fetal movement. Long story short: she’s perfect, barely measuring big, nothing to worry about…but it’s a good thing I’ve got ten to 11 weeks before she’s due. She’s completely breech right now and her back is outward (although this doesn’t even matter since I’m having a c-section). She had her eyes covered by an arm the whole time and her legs were perfectly crossed right above my cervix. It all explains why I haven’t felt her as much. My OB is also refreshing on fetal kick counts; she says they stress moms out (Yes! They do!) and said I don’t need to worry about them. As long as I notice throughout the day that she’s moving, everything should be okay.
I really can’t tell you what a relief this all is. I reverted back to Katie-pregnancy the past weeks and I’m glad to be able to relax again knowing Zuzu is still, as she always has been, perfectly fine.
