36 Week Ultrasound

My 2.02.09/36 week ultrasound showed that Hayden was already about 6.5 lbs, chubby face, normal sized head and breech. He continued to have no new findings. The water in his ventricles of his brain had increased but the Perinatologist said that it was once again in relation to the size of his growth. There was no new blood on the brain. But because of his Spina Bifida, we are meeting 2 times a week to monitor my amniotic fluid, his growth, my pre-eclampsia and to do stress tests on the baby.
Hayden looked very uncomfortable under my ribs with his feet and hands in front of his face. He is moving well with the little room that he has, but the 3D ultrasound was hard to get this far along with the little amniotic fluid and tight fit in my tummy. The 3D picture is a profile shot with his hand in front of his face and the regular ultrasound picture is a straight on shot of his face.I feel like I am getting larger by the day, but the doctor tells me I have been loosing a few pounds. I think it was because I wore flip flopps and not my boots:).
And for those of you that knew Scott was in the hospital last week, the love of my life is home and working on recovering. We are again so grateful for all of the service and love and support that we have received through our most challenging times. We have an amazing family that loves us and came to our aid immediately, the blessings of the priesthood, and wonderful friends that stepped up for us when we needed them the most. We can not express our sincerest gratitude enough.
