26 Weeks (Almost 3rd Trimester)

So we had an appointment with our Perinatalogist, Dr. Egley, today. It went SUPER great! We had an ultrasound and baby girl is measuring around 1 lb. 12 oz. Her fluid levels look really good. We're pretty sure she has Mark's lips :) We got to see a little yawn (which was adorable).

We also clarified how the rest of the pregnancy will go appointment wise and exactly what will be going on during the rest of the time. I will start to keep track of her movements tomorrow. Starting at 28 weeks (June 26), we will have our weekly appointments. We will have an ultrasound every week. There is a list of 5 things they have to see her do before we are allowed to go. I can't remember what they all are, but I know that one is her practicing her breathing. Every 3rd appointment they will do an anatomy scan to make sure she's growing properly.

We are feeling really good about all of this. Dr. Egley said that once high risk pregnancies make it to the 3rd trimester, they actually have a higher success rate than 'normal' pregnancies. That's INCREDIBLY comforting.

I'm definitely feeling the excitement :)
