Shortly after our trip to meet the neonatologist, we had our third ultrasound. By this time, John and I knew exactly what to expect. So we were less nervous and more excited just to see Isaiah in action. At this ultrasound, I was 29 weeks along.
Isaiah sure looked a lot cozier inside my belly this time. Each time we see him, we can see that he has less and less room to move. And his movements feel bigger and bigger. The technician could see that his head was down and his feet were over to my right side. That explains the sharp kicks to the ribs I had been feeling lately.
Out technician seemed as excited as we were to see Isaiah. She tried to show us the movements he was making and just what he was doing inside there. He kept putting his hand toward his mouth. At one point, he was even sucking his thumb, so cute! He was resting his feet against my side and squirming around like there was no tomorrow. Unfortunately, it was so much so that we didn’t get a 3D picture of him this time. He must have been camera shy that day.
Afterwards, we again met with the maternal fetal medicine physician, the nurse, and the genetic counselor. Things looked about the same. One good thing, they noted, was that his head was not enlarged or filled with fluid like some babies with this diagnosis get. As long as things keep progressing the same, we should be able to have a normal delivery.
It was great to be able to see him again and to know that he is growing and doing well so far. Every day we have with him, even in the womb, is a blessing to us.
