|Our Big lil girl yesterday |
Sono tech was not on her A game but you can see her chin, nose and eyes if you look quick
SO HERE IS THE MOST RECENT STUFF GOING ON. AS OF YESTERDAY, 24 WEEKS 3 DAYS: OUR LITTLE GIRL IS NOT SO LITTLE. SHE IS STILL MEASURING A WEEK AHEAD AND IS ALREADY 1LB 12OZ - ALMOST 2 LBS!!! THEY COULDN'T GIVE US AN EXACT MEASUREMENT BECAUSE OF HER POSITION BUT HER MEASUREMENTS INDICATE REALLY LONG LEGS AND A CHUBBY BELLY. MY DARLING WIFE KEEPS TEASING AND SAYING SHE IS A FAT BABY AND A GIANT. LOL. BUT WE THINK SHE IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT AND BEAUTIFUL. EVERYTHING WITH ME IS GOING OK. STILL NO MEDS NEEDED FOR THE GESTATIONAL DIABETES AND MY BLOOD PRESSURE HAS BEEN OK BUT I AM JUST EXHAUSTED. I FEEL LIKE I AM HUGE BUT I HAVE ONLY GAINED 6 LBS SO FAR (WHICH IS EXCELLENT) I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW BIG I AM GONNA BE/FEEL AT THE END OF THE SUMMER.
AS PER OUR CONVO WITH THE MEDICAL ASSISTANT YESTERDAY, MORE THAN LIKELY WE WILL BE SCHEDULED (AROUND 31 WEEKS) FOR AN "ELECTIVE" C-SECTION ON AUGUST 10TH. THE DAY BEFORE MY 37TH BIRTHDAY. I HAVE MIXED FEELINGS ABOUT A C-SECTION BUT I REALLY WANT TO DO WHAT IS THE BEST FOR THE BABY AND ME. I WILL HAVE DAWN HOME WITH ME FOR ABOUT 3 WEEKS SO I AM HOPING TO HAVE AN EASIER RECOVERY WITH HER THERE. WE STILL HAVEN'T GOTTEN MUCH DONE FOR THE BABY'S ROOM AND I AM TRYING NOT TO HAVE A MELTDOWN ABOUT IT AND JUST GO WITH THE FLOW...BUT IT IS VERY HARD FOR ME TO DO.
WE ARE HAVING A BABY SHOWER CHAMPAGNE BRUNCH AT THE END OF JUNE BEING HOSTED BY OUR MOMS AND MY SISTER. I AM SUPER EXCITED. THE BOYS STILL DON'T SEEM SUPER ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT THE BABY OR ANYTHING TO WITH HER BUT I AM CHALKING IT UP TO THEM BEING 16 AND 17 YEARS OLD AND REALLY ONLY BEING EXCITED ABOUT ANYTHING THAT IS IN THEIR MINUSCULE TEENAGE WORLD.
