It has been a super exciting baby week. Not really, it's actually been filled with what seems like hundreds of doctors appointments and ultrasounds. I was actually very excited for the ultrasound so that we could take another look at the baby. He was rather uncooperative and we left there having seen very little. It also occurred to me that we have never been able to see the baby's face. He is constantly hiding behind his hands. With Nathan we always saw his little face and his little nose up in the air, but this baby wants to be an enigma until the very end!
I'm also up 5kgs so far (about 10 pounds) this entire pregnancy. It's hard to believe since I feel so huge compared to when I was pregnant the first time around. I guess the weight just likes to re-distribute itself in other areas, like my rear end.
In any case, my doctor is using the dreaded "P" word as in "pre-term". He has forbidden me from doing anything other than going to and from work. Luckily Cornel was there when he told me that at home I should be resting with my feet up and doing the bare minimum for the next 3 weeks. He is also using the dreaded "C" word - as in c-section. You know, because my pelvic bones are so small and there is no way that a full term baby would ever get passed them. Luckily I don't have to re-do the scans that I did two years ago, we just have to keep monitoring the size of the baby, who is now weight around 2 kgs (4 pounds) according to the lovely ultrasound. Nathan was born at 2.3 kgs and 36 weeks and I think this baby is going to be much bigger!
In non-baby news. This was a long holiday weekend and we enjoyed every second of it outdoors. It has been unseasonably warm, which has been amazing.
