With 3 weeks to go we (I) am getting very excited...a little too excited. My problem is that Max came 3 weeks early and I was hoping for the same with Baby Sister. It looks like that is a no go! I know it isn't real safe to have your baby come early but I really just want her now! Not to mention I have officially lost feeling in my right hand's fingers. The Doc says that it could be from swelling in my arm or a pinched nerve in my back...either way I can't do anything about it until the baby comes! Do you know how annoying it is to lack feeling in your hand. The other day my straightening iron started to fall-I caught it and as my pinkie (the only finger with feeling) wrapped around the iron I realized that I was being burned! Nice! I had burned my other fingers and not even noticed-at least they didn't hurt!
We had another ultrasound yesterday...Dr. Cruz wanted to check the baby's measurements. I also made the radiologist quadruple check the gender of "Baby Sister" (she's still a girl!) According to the Doc Baby Sister is already about 6 pounds 1 ounce! That is almost a half pound bigger than Max was when he was born! I know that sounds small but I still have 3 weeks to go! Yikes! Charlie's cousin Jamie was so thoughtful, she brought over a huge box of beautiful preemie clothes for us to use...it looks as if our chubby baby might not get a chance to wear them-which is good.
I thought I would attach a neat picture of Baby Sister-I can't believe how chubby her cheeks look! Max was never on the chubby side...I can't wait to pinch her legs-if her cheeks are that chubby I can't wait to see her legs. (That is my gene coming out!)
Doesn't she look ticked-she doesn't look impressed at all! :)
