Bad Mama


Week 34 ultrasound

Everything is fine. Pistachio is in the 55th percentile all around, and weighs about 5 lbs. 2 oz.  Meaning she’s bigger than Peanut was when she was born at 37w2d.  She has turned from her head-down position to kind of transverse, though. I think she just got bored.

However, it was still a freaky appointment. I’d finally convinced my mom to come along. She was there with us at Peanut’s “bad” ultrasound, and hasn’t been able to shake the post-traumatic stress of it. But I told her that so far, everything has been just fine, it is different now, it’s time to shake the superstition, so she agreed.

The tech was the same as with Peanut. And so was the room.  They have, like, 5 rooms there, but that’s the one we got for this appointment. And instead of the female doctor we’ve had all along, the one who went back over all the measurements and walked us through them and explained what they were looking for and how they knew everything was cool, we got a silent male doctor who explained nothing. Just like with Peanut. While ultimately we weren’t taken to the little conference room with the round table and given facial tissues, I am just a bit stressed. I’m actually glad we don’t have to do anymore of these screens. I just want to concentrate on getting her head down again and out of my body safely.
