Week 36

Week 36… getting closer!

After our ultrasound last week at Akron Children’s hospital, the doctor determined that the fluid level around the heart that we were worried about has decreased, and that he isn’t as concerned as he once was. This was amazing news to hear! Sometimes these issues can resolve themselves, and it looks like our issue has. The doctor said that now we will have to wait until the baby is born to make sure that everything is OK. So we feel good about the situation so far. At the ultrasound, the doctor said the baby’s head was very low, had tons of hair that she could see and that the baby weighs about 5 pounds 4 ounces already!! 🙂

 Here is the info. from this week: “Your baby is gaining about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds (like a Crenshaw melon and is more than 18 1/2 inches long. She’s shedding most of the downy hair that covered her body, as well as the vernix caseosa, the waxy substance that protected her skin during her nine-month amniotic bath. Next week, your baby will be considered full-term. Most likely she’s in ahead- down position “

Here are our pictures from this week- this baby is definitely growing- A LOT!
