No, not me; the one inside of me! 🙂 We had another midwife appointment yesterday, and my uterus is measuring two to three weeks larger than it should be at this point in the pregnancy. The same thing happened at our last visit, so it sounds like we probably needn’t be concerned about growth impediments related to the marginal cord insertion. Instead, the midwife was concerned that faster than average growth could be a symptom of gestational diabetes, and as of yesterday, I hadn’t actually done the pertinent lab work to prove otherwise.
So today I finally completed the two-hour postprandial glucose test, and as I anticipated, my results are perfectly normal at 5.0 mMol/L (the reference range being anywhere from 3.3 to 11.0 mmol/L). No gestational diabetes there — maybe he’s just dosing up on all that that HGH (human growth hormone) that courses through my body post-workout? 😉
At any rate, we will still go for our follow-up ultrasound in two weeks, just to make certain all is well with the placenta and cord, and that his growth is on track, but it sounds like we don’t have too much to worry about (well, until the delivery, that is… gulp!).
In the meantime, I do find it puzzling that my measurements are large, since I still appear quite small for being nearly 27 weeks. People actually look at me in disbelief when I tell them I am six months pregnant. Oh well, I suppose I should enjoy it while it lasts, since I’ll undoubtedly be the size of a house by this time in August! 🙂
