I got a 3-D sonogram taken of my baby. WOW. With both her hands and feet up by her head and covering a good portion of her face, it was extremely difficult for the doctor to capture this image. He assured me her nose was fine, it merely got cut off in the picture when he focused in to get the other features of her face. I say it's wonderful, clear enough to tell who she looks like anyway! That's definitely MY nose and mouth, don't you think? I don't have a baby picture handy of my hubby (I'm going to have to get my hands on one though), but I do believe those might be the shape of her daddy's eyes. Awww.
Anyway, she is still in breech position, so the word c-section is being heavily discussed. If she still hasn't turned by my next appointment, we'll be scheduling which day she'll be born. The idea of picking out her birthday is kind of exciting. Of course, if I go into labor before that, she'll be picking her own b-day.
She's estimated to be six pounds and five ounces already. I've gained a total of thirty-three pounds all together...not wonderful news, but it's still perfectly average, which I can deal with. After getting to see my baby's face, I'd still be glowing if I'd gained sixty pounds. I just can't wait to meet her in person.
She is now considered FULL TERM!!! That just blows my mind. She's all cooked up and ready to serve...just a few more finishing touches to go before the ol' oven timer goes off, and I deliver Baby À la carte.
I ended up getting FIVE baby showers thrown for her, given by family, friends, church, my workplace, and hubby's workplace. The last one is set to finish this afternoon. Whew. After the first shower, I bought a brand new 50-card set of blank Thank You notes to fill out, but I've already written my way through the entire box. I'm telling you, this is one popular baby; her nursery is thoroughly complete with blankets, diapers, baby clothes, and body washes galore. It's nice to know she's already got this kind of love coming her way, but I say she totally deserves it (sorry, is my proud mama grin showing through?).
Anyway, I think that's all I have to report. Both baby and me seem to be healthy and doing just fine. The doctor says I'm beginning to drop, but I haven't dilated yet.
If I do get a c-section scheduled, I'll let you know. See you all tomorrow with more news, but this news will have to do with actual writing and books!
