I’ve just come from the ultrasound, and the baby seems to be fine and is measuring as she should for 37 weeks. So, relief. Huge relief. D was squeezing my hand the whole time, and his whole body relaxed when the technician said the baby was okay. I sometimes forget that this pregnancy has been just as hard on him as it’s been on me. (Though he, of course, can pour himself a stiff drink when he wants one.)
I still have the pain wrapping around my left side, so I might not make it to March 4th, but I don’t care, so long as the little one is okay. Her little profile looks just like Stella. And today she is technically a full-term baby.
Thank you for your thoughts and good wishes.
