PEANUT!!!!!

With a very happy heart, I am relieved to say that our girl is just a little peanut!!! :)

We just got home from the MFM growth scan appointment. And it couldn't have gone better. We did get to meet with the "good" doctor." And he seemed so confident while doing the ultrasound, which I really liked! He was this little Japanese guy with a very strong accent and he kept making little jokes here and there, which only my husband really heard because I couldn't hear over the crinkly exam table paper. But we did get to watch the screen the whole time which was cool. Here's a summary of what he told us:

-She's growing! 3 pounds 1 oz now. She's definitely growing on her own curve which is a great sign that everything is okay and that she's likely just a peanut. In fact, if I go full term she could be close to 7 pounds he said!
-Her arms and legs have grown! And he said that her feet are measuring bigger than her femur which is a clear  sign that she doesn't have dwarfism. He said she might have big feet! haha Which is funny because I've always had big feet for my height :)
-He can't find any down syndrome markers!
-AND he's so confident with what he (did and didn't find) that we don't even have to go back!

Thank you GOD! :) And thank you to anyone who's prayed for us!
