Grade A Jumbo Eggbert
I had the growth scan this morning (exactly three weeks after the doctor uttered the dreaded words "growth restriction") and I'm happy to report that all of the eating that I've been doing has not been in vain. I had gained two pounds in the last two weeks, and it turns out that's all Eggbert! The weight estimate has been revised upward from 3 pounds 10 ounces to 5 pounds 12 ounces. Yippee! The Egg is still a little behind, but is growing at a steady clip, and is even catching up a bit with gestational age. I didn't actually see the doctor today, but she instructed the nurse to send me on my merry way until next week. It's looking like I may get to go to term after all. I may just be the happiest mama in the world today.
