Ultrasound = Ultra Relief

I just got the results. No twins! I have one healthy baby who is measuring just under 10 weeks living inside a spacious uterus that is measuring just over 12 weeks.

I could blame my enlarged uterus on my last child who stretched the darned thing out with her 9 1/2 pound body, but it is not her fault.

I could blame my neuron transmitters that failed to send the "We are shrinking down to pre-pregnancy size." message to my uterus. Thankfully the rest of my body got the message.

I could blame my AMA. For those of you too young to know what that means, let me fill you in. Advanced Maternal Age.

Goodness sakes people. I am thirty-five not forty-five. Thirty-five is practically median maternal age these days.

Regardless of fault, these are the facts. One healthy baby. One heart beating at 170 beats per minute. One enlarged home for said baby. One very relieved stay at home dad.

As much as I would have delighted in twin grandbabies, I understand your (Jeff's) relief. I'm so happy to be grammy again, whatever the number!

Just means there's room to decorate in there.

I'd be prepared to go past my due date, since that little one will be so comfy in there....

And while Jeff is relieved, are the girls just a tad bit disappointed? After all, with only one baby there won't be an extra so they EACH could have their own to cart around. :)

happy singleton to you! my neighbor up the street had #3 turn into #3 & #4 - I think I'd be completely overwhelmed! Glad that everything looks perfect though. What is your due date again?
