More of the same news after our appointments today: everything is holding steady, ventricles at the same levels (fourth week in a row with no increase), no signs of labor. All quite splendid. It's hard to believe that this Thursday will mark eight weeks since the surgery; eight weeks from surgery to birth is about average for a MOMS baby. She'll be 32 weeks along on Friday. Today's ultrasound was more in-depth than our regular weekly ones; they did all of the measurements and estimate she's just a shade under 4 pounds now. And we now have a tentative date set for her delivery, in the event that she beats the odds and stays put until 37 weeks: they'll plan the c-section for October 16.
