All is well

PHEW! All is well after yesterday's trek to the big city. There is no need for more followup, but I'm certainly glad we got a good opinion from a specialist on it to ease our minds.
Our Stickie is in the 41st percentile for size at this time (31 weeks). He weighs 3 pounds, 7 ounces. His renal pelvis area was still slightly enlarged (6.3cm and 6.8cm) however the Dr said that they have different criteria for "abnormal" than at our hospital. They say anything that's over 7 cm, which his was slightly above that at the last ultrasound, is abnormal. So we are right on the border. Dr said that we should tell the pediatrician when he's born and he doesn't expect that there will be any more issue with it.
He scanned the rest of our lil man and when he got to the heart, he was punching keys on the machine and he just under his breath said, "Perfect". I already knew his heart was perfect! Not in the physical sense, but I have such a feeling that this lil man is going to be a blessing to so many. I hope he has half the heart that his Granddaddy did and his Daddy does! (he will be named after the two of them) Also, he has moved from being head under my ribs to head over to my left. Basically, he's perpendicular (90degrees) to the ground, if that makes sense. I knew he'd done some shifting on Sunday. Also, I've had to go to the bathroom more frequently, I think thats because he's tap dancing on my bladder! I don't care, he can use me and abuse me. This is his home for 9 more weeks, and I'll take whatever he dishes out. I'm so in love already!

OH Hollie! That makes me so happy that he is okay. WEEW. My heart skipped a beat when you said 9 more weeks! I just remember being in the first 9 weeks... when everything was so scary and it seemed so far away. Now, that's all you have left!
