It shrank! It has shrunken! It’s a good size. (name that movie!)
We went today for a follow up on the left ventricle and it’s smaller and almost in range of what is considered “normal”. The doc said that there is absolutely nothing to worry about. We have a health baby boy (omg, no shrinkage in that dept!) who weighs 3 lbs 11 ounces. He’s measuring at about 50th percentile and is 2 days ahead of schedule size wise.
My baby is healthy. I can’t even describe how good it feels to type that out.
It was good timing that we moved this past weekend because I barely had any time at all to worry about brains and fluid and shunts. At night G and I would put our hands on my belly and instruct baby boy that he needed to work on shrinking that left ventricle because mommy and daddy were in the middle of a move and already very stressed and, frankly, we just didn’t have time to worry about it.
Thank goodness he listened.
Also, in unrelated but almost equally good news, Seeker OK’d me to start taking 2 max strength Zantac per day instead of just 1 and a ton of Tums. When I confessed that I am also popping Tums like candy he said that I could continue to do so with his blessing. THANK GOD. There is just so much room up in there and apparently baby boy has no respect for one’s esophagus. ZANTAC and TUMS! Keep ‘em comin’!
