They ended up doing the ultrasound earlier than scheduled (another patient was running late and I was already here) - they didn't measure the baby because they said they like to do that every 3 weeks, but they had 8 different things they were looking for, the main 2 being the fluid level and whether they could see movement through the nasal passages (which indicates that she's practicing breathing). All were GREAT! Blood was flowing through the cord perfectly, she is head-down, fluid levels are back to normal, it was so cool to actually see the motion of her practicing breathing and such a good sign for when she is an outside baby. I love her so much and I am already such a proud mama!
It is also looking really good that I will be out of here Wed, just before Christmas! They didn't really check my cervix today because they already know it is short and funneling, but Wed I will have another u/s and as long as I don't have contractions and dilation has stayed at 1cm, then I can leave :) The poor Schnick family will have me to deal with, but it will be nice to hang out with them as well :)

I am so glad you and the baby are going well. I bet it is great to see her in 3D. I hope you get out b4 Christmas so you can spend some quality time with your family and little lady. Sending prayers your way!!
