I think it’s mean to make pregnant ladies pee in a cup. If you have never simultaneously been eight months pregnant and peed in a cup, try holding a watermelon to your stomach with one hand while reaching the other down with a Dixie cup and see if you can do it without any stray drops. Not that you can see the drops at that point, but trust me, you’ll know if you made it or not.
And the good news is…no news! Mbungo looks totally healthy and is growing, so I can stop worrying about the placenta being detached, a clot in the cord, the danger of Mbungo swallowing his own poop, and a bunch of other things that my small fundus could have been indicators of.
Of course, we didn’t make it out of the appointment without the sonographer commenting, “Well, his head certainly isn’t measuring small!” I get it, okay? The watermelon isn’t just a metaphor in my case!
