No Answer, Naturally

So of course we don't know.
First, very frustratingly, Dr. Gonen's ultrasound computer kept losing track of the measurements he made of Cholent's head, belly, and femur in order to estimate her weight. Finally he arrived at 2.7 kilos. Not that that means anything to me.
Next he informed us that her head was pointing down in what I think of as the "blast off" position. This is good news, because one of the fears was that the myomas would prevent her from getting into this "lock down" position. Indeed until now, she's always been in breach (horizontal) position.
However, the position of her head meant that she was preventing the good doctor from getting a good fix on the myomas. At last sighting, they were hanging out just below the cervix.
So to be on the safe side, he wants me to go back to Dr. Shapiro, aka the ultra ultrasound doctor. He should be able to get a more precise reading and make a recommendation.
Meanwhile, let's all take a deep breath and go back to assuming that the natural due date of Dec 19 or 20 (depending on the calculator you use, Adi says let's call it midnight between the 19th and 20th).
