We had another ultrasound last night because at our last one, Baby Girl wasn't giving us a profile shot and didn't give the tech a great look at the heart. Baby is beautiful and healthy and I'm even more excited to meet her now than I ever have been, if that's possible!
I know these photos mean more to me than they do to you, but I appreciate you indulging me and letting me post them anyway. She still doesn't have a name but we're working on it. We have 2 names in the running but D wants to read every page of the "girl" section of the baby name book before he'll decide anything. I feel like I've already told you all of this so I'm going to move on.
Here's Baby's profile - sternum is visible
Cute little foot.
She's turned a little bit away from us - you can kind of see the outline of her ear.
Really neat shot of the bones in her leg and foot
She's got her leg above her head and she's grabbing her heel.
Kinda creepy, kinda cute. She's facing us - you can see her eyes and nose...notice the chubby cheek. I love that! Fatten up, little one!
So, there she is. I spared you the shot that confirmed that she is indeed a girl. You're welcome.
After the ultrasound I had my prenatal appointment. At my last prenatal appointment, my doctor told me to start eating more snacks and not to only eat the main 3 meals. She said I hadn't gained weight since I got pregnant and she'd like for me to. After they weighed me, I walked in the room where D was sitting and I said "I gained...a lot". So when the doctor walked in, D told her "Well, she did well on the assignment you gave her. She gained weight." The doctor looked at my chart and said "My goodness! You did gain weight! You're like an overachiever!" Yeah, I gained 8 lbs in one month. AAAHHH! I'm not too worried about it - I'm glad the baby is healthy. I am trying to eat better, though.
I got the drink for my glucose screening at the end of March. I had a colonoscopy about a year and a half ago due to a lot of intestinal problems I was having and they made me drink this stuff called Golightly (at least that's what it sounds like - not sure how it's spelled) as a laxative the night before. I had about a gallon of this stuff to drink and it was the most disgusting thing I've ever put in my mouth in my life. I will never drink that stuff again - ever. Anyway, my doctor said this glucose stuff tastes kind of like that so you can imagine how excited I am to drink it.
Enough from me. Have a great Tuesday!
