Went to the doctors on Monday and had another ultrasound. We got the 100% confirmation that Madison is indeed a girl :) Janie also looked at my placenta and it is still low. She tried to show me, it's a lot more confusing than looking at the baby LOL, what makes it a previa. The basic jist of it is currently the placenta is not completely covering my cervix (a good thing) it's on the very edge, however if I were to go into labor when my cervix begins to dialate it would then begin to overlap and obstruct the baby from coming out. So while Janie isn't a doctor she is 99% sure that we will be discussing c-sections at my next appointment.
Janie then began doing measurements and Madison is measuring 1-2 weeks ahead of schedule. She is in the 60th percentile for her age. So Janie estimates that Madison will be between 8 and 8.5 pounds at birth. While this could be true, I think she will be in the high 7's. They also thought Aidan would be a little bigger and he was a teeny tiny 6.2 pounds. So while Madison is having adequate weight gain, I'm actually losing weight!! Since my last appointment in January I lost 8 pounds and in the first trimester I had lost 15 pounds for a grand total of 23 pounds lost so far. I think I may be one of the few pregnant women in the world who will actually probably walk away from this pregnancy weighing less than I did when I got pregnant. woohoo!! enjoy our little chunky monkey :)
