At the follow-up ultrasound this afternoon, we found out that the baby's stomach is normal size, and they double checked everything else which still looks great. This is such a relief, and, of course, I cried as the technician matter-of-factly told me that the stomach looks "fine" now. I'm going to make homemade mac-and-cheese to celebrate. Here's the recipe from the Food Network:

The Lady's Cheesy Mac
by Paula Deen

4 cups cooked elbow macaroni, drained
2 cups grated Cheddar
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Once you have the macaroni cooked and drained, place in a large bowl and while still hot and add the Cheddar. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and add to the macaroni mixture. Pour macaroni mixture into a casserole dish and bake for 30 to 45 minutes. Top with additional cheese, if desired.
