When thighs attack

I’m sporting this summer’s hottest anatomical feature. Thalves! When your thighs attack your calves, kind of like cankles — only higher up.

I had a growth scan today — we’re technically 34w3d, but measuring roughly 35w3d. BeeGee has lots of hair (mostly on her head, thank goodness) and weighs approximately 2.5 kilo (give or take 300 grams) or 5.5 pounds. She is still head down and in a great position for delivery. The tech also checked her umbilical arteries and all looks good. She has enough room to grow a bit more and there’s no indication of any early arrivals — which is great, because, to sound like a jerk, I have way too much work to do between now and then.

Afterward, I had the world’s shortest doctor appointment (roughly 90 seconds) to check my blood pressure (“Perfect!”), get another prescription for iron (“You’re taking them everyday, right?” “Uh huh. Yeah.”) and be told that everything looks good.

Back to the good doctor in two weeks!

  1. Everything sounds great! Keep up the good work!

  2. Ouch! Guess the heat doesn’t help. Have you tried wearing shorts under a skirt>?

  3. It’s funny you should mention that. I started wearing skirts only about five years ago, but I only started wearing shorts all the time about two years ago. It is a lifesaver (and something I would recommend to any woman who has to wear skirts in the heat — whether for work or faith).
