I don't have much time, so I thought I'd do a quick update on the pregnancy. This picture was taken today at 33wk 2d. 6.5 weeks to go!
I had my check-up on Monday and am measuring right on. I think I only gained a pound in the two weeks, so I'm up 31lbs total...not too bad for me. And, my rings still manage to fit most days!
Isla is now about 4-4.5lbs and gaining steadily. She is kicking and moving all over! My doctor thinks she may be head down now...I hope so! I really can't tell. My next appt is in two weeks, where my doc will do my GBS test (already!) and do a more thorough exam for Isla's position. She said if there is any question if she is head down or not, we'll have an ultrasound to confirm. At this point, I am declining a growth ultrasound, so won't have anymore unless it is to confirm her position! After this next appt, I'll be going every week until the end...
You can see in the posts below that we (I) are making progress on getting everyone set up for Isla's arrival. I also completely cleaned my husbands car so it is ready to bring her home. The nesting intinct has kicked in. It is too bad I don't have the energy or physical ability to bust it out (my hips and back get pretty darn sore!), but things are coming along!
Miles is a happy, energetic, three year old who loves to explore the world. He loves trains, building towers with blocks, reading books, pretending to be a fireman. Miles also loves going to Grandma and Grandpa's (both sides!) and playing with family. He is a sweet, loving, cuddly mother-proclaimed mamma's boy who is ever changing every day, hour, minute and second.
Miss Isla is our new edition. She is a beautiful, sweet, calm baby who is changing and growing every day. She smiles often and does all the things babies do best (eat, sleep, play, and grow).
We are delighted to watch them grow and learn each and every day. This is a chronicle of their adventures growing up.
