An Update on Austin

Friday I had an appt with my peri and man was it a madhouse in her office. The quick rundown is that the stitch is still holding, fluid level is up to 13 (great news!), but Austin has decided to slow down on his growth. He is measuring 3 lbs 8 oz now and that's only the 24th percentile. She didn't seem too concerned because I don't have another appointment until the 31st. It, of course, scares me a bit since Hannah was a biggun' and you would expect him to be one since I have gestational diabetes this time. Current plans are to shoot for 36 weeks and call it done which is more than ok with me! She also gave me permission to lounge outside. Yesterday I went down the steps, spent several hours outside, and slept on the couch. Today, I went back outside and spent a few hours again. Tonight, I made my venture back up the steps and had a shower. I'll spend the next few days in bed again before my next excursion. :-)
