Right now I’m full of wonder. Primarily about when this little man of ours is going to make his arrival. The more I read about fetal growth restriction the more I read about babies being born between 34 and 36 weeks. I’ll be 34 weeks on Saturday. Gratefully fetal growth restriction doesn’t typically affect development so he should have hit all the major milestones by that point (in theory). I wonder what life will be like after he gets here. Will there be NICU stays? Will there be other issues? Will everything be ok?
I’m anxious for him to be on the outside of me and not on the inside! Right now all I have to go on in terms of keeping him going are my intuition, kick counts, and hopefully appropriately timed doctors appointments to catch anything crazy. I feel like it will be easier when he’s not inside. Though, I do remember all to well the stress associated with a newborn…
Gratefully it is all in Heavenly Fathers hands. So I will attempt to keep my worry at bay and enjoy his little kicks while I still can.
32 week ultrasound. He’s trying to suck his thumb.
