she's okay

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.

Congratulations, Kate. I am cheering for you and the baby. You are good mother. You are the best mother for your daughters.

Oh, I am SO GLAD for you! So glad!

And if your little baby looks like Stella, she is going to be a little gorgeous one. Madam was totally taken by Stella and kept telling me she met a "fairy girl" LOL.

Take care of yourself and please let me know if I can do anything to help. Have bus pass, will travel!

Way to pitch the full nine innings, Kate. We're happy for you.

Thank you all. I feel so much better today, after a fairly good night's sleep, knowing that this little one is as big as she should be.

Mardougrrl--so funny that Madam calls Stella a fairy girl. My fairy has been such a dickens lately.

Hi,

I'm glad the ultrasound revealed good things, but keep your PE/HELLP radar up...just in case. Full term is a great, great thing. :)

Now, enjoy these few weeks of being in the wonderful world of growing a baby. Good luck! I'll be thinking of you.

Rock on for 37 weeks! You are one terrific lady. I know how hard those last few weeks are, always waiting for the PE monster to strike. You CAN do this, I know it. You are almost to the finish line.

Many good thoughts coming your way.

I'm not sure there are two more beautiful words than "full term".

Congratulations. xo
