OB appt

Checking the heartbeat which always seems to be 150. While Naomi laid there, I could see the baby move from one side of her to the other. That lump to her left is the baby's back.
224 weeks 6 days
Baby Taenae continues to grow. BTW, although Naomi refers to the baby as Taenae (her teammates called her Nae; Tae equals Dontae), she has other names picked out. I really like the name she has for a girl, though except for a possible flash of the 'hamburger sign', this baby is probably a boy. I don't like the boy's name much but she changes her mind alot and is easily influenced. She goes in for another ultrasound next week. Medical reason: fundal height inconsistant with due date (26 weeks+ vs 25 weeks). She gained a whole pound in the last 5 weeks for a grand total of 8 lbs. Still weighs less than in her basketball days. Otherwise, she and the baby are healthy.
I asked the OB about her C-section rate: 30% which is now average in the US. We both expressed our wishes for this to be avoided. We take a hospital tour tomorrow.
It is so nice not to worry about icy patches. Spring and fall are ideal to run in. I've been more consistant about stretching my arm: I now can reach 1 inch beyound last month but 6 inches or so less than my left arm.
I went yesterday for a long walk with Steve to hear the frogs. He couldn't hear them!!!! He did hear the red-wing blackbirds though.His hearing loss becomes more severe as time goes on but he denies it and accuses us of mumbling. For the record, I speak loudly and clearly.

i suppose i should have said...is her fundal height smaller or greater than what they assume it should be?

It's greater than what it is supposed to be but no worries-she needed a medical excuse to get the ultrasound. It would be impossible to get it down to within one week by fundal height.
