Comments for One Last Ultrasound

Harriet at 35 weeksOne Last Ultrasound: 08/11/06

Ian and I went to Kaiser again for the last of the high risk ultrasounds. I came expecting to be on my back for another hour and a half like the previous time. We ended up only being in the ultrasound room for about twenty minutes. Harriet's head down position made taking the measurements much easier. The doctor was able to quickly measure her head circumference, her body cavity circumference, and the length of one of her femurs. The ultrasound computer came up with an estimated weight of 7 lbs 12 oz.

Before sending us home, he took a couple scans of her for us to keep. She was chewing on her hand during the scan and the pictures sort of show her doing this. He said that she was doing perfectly for her growth and that my pregnancy was a textbook pregnancy. Since I'm due to delivery by c-section in a little over three weeks, he doesn't see any need to give me another ultrasound before her birth. The only "high risk" monitoring either doctor wants me to continue with is the nightly calls from the perinatal nurses down in Santa Clara. So I'll have to keep monitoring my urine and blood pressure until she's born.
