Hannah had her first BPP (biophysical profile) today. She passed with flying colors. I didn't really know what to expect when I went in for the test this afternoon, but it was kind of fun. I got to watch her move and yawn and stretch. The ultrasound tech measured her muscle tone, watched her practice breathe, measured her amniotic fluid, noted her movements, and then deemed our little girl healthy! She got an 8/8.
Yay, Hannah Mae!
The tech estimates her weight to be 2 lbs 12 oz. This puts her in the 31st percentile. She's a small baby, but coming from two pretty small parents, I'd say she's doing great! Praise God for Lovenox.
Next week, I go in for my first NST (non-stress test). We are in the final stretch where I will be going in every week for monitoring of some kind. I'll get a NST every week and a BPP with a growth scan every three weeks.
Having monitoring like this available to us is such an incredible relief. I am so thankful. I can almost breathe easy.
This is one of the funniest ultrasound pictures I've seen in a while- it was taken right before she gave us a big yawn.
Sorry the quality's not that great, but we still don't have a scanner, so it's a picture of the ultrasound.
Can you see her nose at the top and her sweet mouth opening in a yawn? I think she was trying to tell us how bored she is in there... I'm ready too, Hannah.
Kelli-poo, you are such a blessing to my heart. I thank God for our friendship. It's been ten years since I've seen your beautiful smile but I remember it like it was yesterday. Do you remember our Felicity inspired tapes? I still have mine...
