Our consult with the high-risk OB was today. We got to see the monkey again and confirmed yet again that he is in fact a he. We didn’t get as good of pictures this time, though. For one he’s taking up a lot more space, and for two someone decided he wanted to be like his mommy and hide his face behind his hands–and feet!–when the tech tried to take one. He just wasn’t cooperating, even with some gentle nudging. They said he’s around 4lbs 1oz now, which is where he should be, and his heart rate was good. We also were told by the OB that Firefly’s regular OB is one of her favorite doctors, which is always nice to hear.

Oh! And I forgot! He has lots of hair. You can see it on the pictures, it’s funny.

We were pretty much told what we thought we would be as far as Firefly goes: watch for symptoms but don’t stress about it at all; after delivery she’ll be on a preventative dose of blood thinners by injection once a day for 6 weeks, but it won’t cause any restrictions or prevent breastfeeding, which is good. I’m feeling better about the whole thing overall, and Firefly is being her usual relaxed self and keeping me calm. Hey, someone’s got to do it.

On another note, I’m wondering why my SaraProject photo from today is showing out-of-order in the sidebar even though I’ve been specifying what order I want them in. Oh well.

    Good to hear that her condition will be manageable and won’t interfere with any plans!
