|baby Stybs is actually 4 1/2 lbs!|
I went in for my check up yesterday and got a growth sonogram- and a surprise 4D too. I am so thankful my doctor's office is high tech- I lay on the table, with a big 40" tv monitor to watch the ultrasound as the tech does her thing at the computer by the table. She was able to switch back and forth between the regular sonogram and the 4D. The funniest part was when we were looking at the face on the regular 3D, I saw what looked like a tongue sticking out of baby's mouth a couple times, and switching to 4D we caught it. It is not a pretty picture of the baby but it is so amazing to see the baby acting out and having a little personality in there.
In other news- I was a little worried about my weight this time. Since the check up was only 2 weeks after the last time I was weighed I was scared to see what effect all the ice cream had on me. Last time I gained 2 lbs in 4 weeks, this time it was 2 lbs in 2 weeks. I'm measuring on track and the doctor's haven't said anything, and my mom assures me that I will gain about a pound a week from here out, so I guess I'm doing alright.
Another reason for excitement- my baby shower is today! I'm excited to see family and friends, and finally feel ready for baby's arrival. I'll definitely post pics later (as long as I can remember to have someone take pics).
And for the updates:
Cravings/Aversions: craving fried food, not liking tomatoes again
Weight: +22 overall
Morning Sickness: all good
Energy: feeling pretty normal, but adding a nap to my daily schedule isn't hurting. Now if only I could get this back pain to stop...
