The ultrasound showed a very healthy baby with a very healthy amount of amniotic fluid. Hooray! Normal levels range between 5 and 25. The last ultrasound measured 27 and today it was 18, so I don't think it was ever too much of a problem, but I didn't know that number until today. So last night when I decided to Google "excessive amniotic fluid" on a whim (I wasn't even worried about it, so I don't know what possessed me to do this), imagine the horror when I started seeing words like "prolapsed cord" and "placental abruption". Thankfully all is great though.

Her head, once again, was extremely low, so I didn't really see much of her face, which has been the case the last 3 ultrasounds, but the sonographer caught a good head measurement and predicted 6lbs 3oz. I'm so excited to meet my little baby!! If she doesn't come on her own, we're looking at 2 weeks from today! December 26, 2008.

36 weeks

Glad to hear everything looks normal. Google can be both a wonderful source of information as well as a terrifying dose of reality at times. I'm addicted to googling just about everything and sometimes get more than I bargained for.

Hopefully you'll get to see your sweet little baby just before Christmas gets here.

Best of luck!

OMG!! You're going to be a mommy in 2 weeks - yeah!!! What an awesome Christmas present. And 6lbs 3oz, eh? She's going to be a little tyke :). Our midwife just predicted us at 7lbs 3oz. I was 6lbs 11oz and DH was close to 8 so I was hoping the smaller the better - LOL.

Wish I could see my little one. All I've ever seen thus far from the internal u/s is a big bootie!

WOW! 2 weeks!! I am predicting you go into labor Christmas Eve or Day. Babies like to be inconvenient.
