All smiles.

via bun&borough

We're all smiles today.
My perinatologist was happy with the way Preston looked today.

  Here's what we saw:
- He's not growing as quickly as he was before, but there is some growth.
- He remains in the 45th percentile on growth.
- My fluid level remains lower limit, but stable.
- He's in the breech position.
- He has a lot of hair according to the tech... and it was very obvious once she pointed it out.
- He's practicing breathing. I loved watching his chest rise and fall. 
  My doc assures me this means he isn't struggling or feeling poorly.

So we made it to December, and if he'll just continue to grow and his heart function remains stable we may make it to January. I would love nothing more than to spend Christmas at home with my hubby ... possibly our last one just the two of us ... and then start the new year off with a baby. We shall see. If there's anything I'm learning through this process is how to just go with the flow. How to just roll with the punches. Know what I mean?

I am so happy to hear that Preston is staying strong and continuing to grow. My hubby, Joseph, can't wait to meet Preston.

I pray for you both all the time and you are constantly on my heart! Hugs!
