When Okay is Wonderful

Thank you all so much for the outpouring of support! After a three (!) hour appointment at the high-risk doctor, the outcome was what I predicted.  "Baby is small, but normal.  We have to be really careful with the bicornuate uterus and two vessel cord, and we will monitor the baby's growth and the amount of blood flow every two weeks."

So. . . the status quo! Best news ever!  Baby will still likely be early, but hopefully reasonably early.  I will keep going to the doctor for an ultrasound every two weeks.  I'm sure I will have a mild panic attack in the hours leading up to each appointment, but am peaceful and relieved for now.  Basically, I have two obstacles in our way- wonky uterus and wonky umbilical cord.  The baby and I can hurdle over those.  Just a cautious hurdling, where we don't get out of breath or travel. . .
