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!
