Ultrasound

So I had another ultrasound today. Good news! The baby is growing very well! According to their measurements, he is weighing in at 4 lbs 12 oz. That is just one pound away from what Georgie was, when she was born, so we anticipate this baby boy being at least 7 lbs. Wonderful news, since the bigger he is, the bigger (in theory) his arteries are, and the better able he will be to be healthy and strong. Also, he looks like he has some cute chubby cheeks and a bit of hair.

I have seen this Ultrasound Tech quite a few times in the last two months. I think she is great. We have a good time laughing together.
Also, here are the two Doctors that are ever present at my ultrasounds, Dr. Muench (Perinatologist) and Dr. Brames (Pediatric Cardiologist). They saw some developments at this ultrasound that might possibly lead to a different type of outcome for this baby (all good news), but they are anxious to see what his heart looks like after he is born, when they don't have to look through my body, the placenta, his ribs, and arm or two, and awkward angles. So we will see what the future holds.

For now, my next few weeks are filled with appointments with my OB here, as well as lots of appointments with the entire staff (it seems) up in Denver University Hospital and The Children's Hospital.
My weekend here is filled up though, with these two gals. Two of my sisters, Shavonne and Sharon, flew down to do some projects with me this weekend. We are having a great time already.

I'm glad things are looking better. I hope it stays that way.

By the way, thanks for showing off your tummy. It's nice to see that other people have terrible stretch marks like I do! I think mine are still worse but at least I'm not the only one. :)-

Yay for sisters!!! Also I am so glad that the ultrasound went well today. I did not know that George was so small when she was born, but then again she still is so why am I surprised? I love pregnant bellys!

Nothing to do with anything but your Georgie looks like your sister on the right so so much.

Yay for good news!! Modern medicine is just fantastic and such a blessing that your doctors can have a plan of attack formulated ahead of time.

This pic and what you wrote reminds me of my last days pregnant with William.

I had so many ultrasounds in fact one of my last ones I had with the cardiologist was the day Gorgie was born.He said the same thing his heart looks better than we first thought we will know more about his heart when this little guy is out.

I am so happy for you and your family that things are looking up!!

It's so great to see your "team," all people eager to see your baby as healthy and strong as can be! I am so glad the good news is coming in! Seven pounds is a GREAT size! And so glad you could spend some sister time before all of the craziness begins.

I love your cute belly! It brings back pregnant memories looking at it in the pictures.

I am glad the baby is growing bigger and that his arteries are getting bigger and stronger too. Everything is sounding more positive!

Keep your head up and keep filling that belly with good food!
