Monday, I went in for my re-check ultrasound to measure my amniotic fluid again. Well, what do you know, it went up another 1.5 cms. So in a week and a half, it went from 13 cm to 19.5 cm (not considered "too high" but a little alarming because it made such a big jump in such a short time). Dr. M really wanted me to see a specialist, so she made an appointment with Dr. BK (a fetal monotoring Dr.). I had heard wonderful things about him, so I knew I was in good hands...but this was not the way it was supposed to happen. Right? I was supposed to have an uneventful, "boring" pregnancy.
What was the first thing I did when I got home? I googled excessive amniotic fluid. (probably not something I should have done!) I saw scary words like heart failure, kidney failure, inability to swallow, and amniocentisis. That officially freaked me out.
We got to Dr. BK's office at 12:30. They took us back around 1:15 and did an ultrasound. It was one of the neatest things that I have ever seen. We were able to see EVERYTHING. They measured everything twice and then we saw a 4D view of it. We even got to see his sweet face.
To me he looks like Jackson. (Can you see his face? It's his eyes-which were open, nose and hand in front of his mouth)
Yawn, I am so bored in here. (Eyes, nose and mouth open)
Feeling a little shy (eyes closed, nose, and hand covering his mouth)
We then waited in a conference room for Dr. BK to come in and talk to us. He told us that everything looked great. My fluid was not too high and that Hudson measured out perfectly! He said that he did not want to ever see me again and I told him that I never wanted to see him again either...no offense. =) A scary day ended up being one of the greatest days. Getting to see my sweet boys face was the highlight of this pregnancy!
