29 week update

Today my visit to the doctor consisted of a glucose test followed by an ultrasound and then news that Dr. D was in surgery and wouldn't arrive for another 1/2 hour. I asked the nurse if we could just say it's all good and I'll see him in two weeks (yeah - I'm now seeing him every two weeks!) since every thing's been fine and I didn't want to wait 1/2 hour+ to tell him that.

The ultrasound was to check and make sure my placenta has raised since it was so low last time. Let me tell you - ultrasounds are not nearly as fun when you're further along because the baby is so dang squished, you can't tell what is what. We barely got a face shot, but I love it because she looks like a real person now, not a skeleton -- so Megan and Rachel don't have to freak out at this pic!

Megan's been begging for a picture so here it is -- I suddenly popped out a ton last week and I only expect it to get bigger and bigger quickly because I've been pretty small so far. Megan is due the day before me so it's fun for us to compare - I'd say I'm definitely bigger than her.

29 week stats:

Baby weighs: 3 lbs
Mom's weight gain: 20 lbs
Baby due date: no change -- exact same to the day -- March 29
Placenta: moved up into normal place - yeah! no c-sections here!
Possible names: Kate, Sydney . . . I'm not good at choosing names!

Look at those cute chubby cheeks!

Wow!! I have never seen an ultrasound where you can see the chubbies. So cute. You are cute too. At first I was surprised at you doing your glucose test so late, but then I remembered that I did mine at 28 weeks. Good luck on the results.

Megan said...

Look at those cheeks! Holy Cow! So cute. You look great too, and there is no way in hell you're bigger than me, you still look tiny! I love all the updates, I'm glad everything turned out great at the ultrasound, no worries now. And I'm envious you can still fit into your jeans, I can only wear my green cords and I'm sick of them!

Amy said...

You're such a cute pregnant lady! I'm getting very anxious for this little girl to come.

JoDee said...

I adore the cheeks and can't believe how good you can see them, that's crazy. We can't wait to see you next week.

Rachel said...

Super cute ultra-sound picture but I do have to say... I still think your small! I also vote Sydney, you have to stick with place names!

Nina said...

My vote Sydney as well... CUTE name and you look GREAT Mandi... The baby looks so darn good I wish when I was having kids the pictures were so exact.....Stef is pregnant due a few days after Rach. We are excited to have more grandbabies running around... Love you Happy New Year.....

Mandy said...

Cute picture of you! I have never seen an ultrasound where you could see cheeks! So cute!

I didn't realize your and Megan's due dates were so close.

Oh, I think that's great for an ultrasound picture. I'm one of those people who usually can't see anything on them, but I can totally see those cute chubby cheeks!

You look great! Can't wait to hear what you decide on the name. I like both of those.

I hate the glucose test almost as much as the first month of pregnancy. Ugh and yuck. I'm actually tearing up just thinking about it.

I can't see the pictures for some reason, but I bet you are both darling.

elizabeth said...

That is a way cute ultrasound. And you are tiny, for only having 11 weeks left. Continued luck on the rest of the pregnancy.

michelle said...

You look great for having only 11 weeks left! The ultrasound picture is so cute! Sweet little baby girl!

Heather said...

My vote is Kate, but Sydney is totally cute too. Especially if you are going to places like the previous commenter made.

Cute girl and cute mom!

You look so cute! I can't believe that you are that close already. I love the name Sydney. How fun to have 3 girls!!
