Baby Update

    Things are still going well with our pregnancy.  Kendall is growing, growing, growing.  It’s looking like she may be a big girl.  

     My regular Ob did an ultra sound at my last appointment.  She weighs 3 lb 15oz., which is in the 90th percentile.  She is measuring 3 weeks big.  At my 20 week appointment she was measuring a few days big.  At 24 weeks, she was measuring a week big.  Then at 28 weeks, she jumped to 3 weeks big.  Needless to say, my doctor is keeping an eye out on her.  I’ll have another ultra sound at 32 weeks.

     At the beginning of my pregnancy I lost 8 lbs.  I’ve gained 3 of it back and have maintained that weight.   I was convinced I had gestational diabetes.  But my glucose test came back normal.   She’s just good and healthy!   I keep laughing saying it’s too bad I can’t even blame this one on Michael.  This is all on my genetics.  We’ll just have more to cuddle once she gets here.

    I also spotted her calcified spot on the 28 week ultra sound.  That’s something I would have never noticed before.  I got the tech to measure it again.  It is 0.2 x 0.2.  I’m not concerned at all, just curious if they will still be there later in my pregnancy. 

   It’s crazy to think she’ll be here in 11 weeks (or less).  We haven’t done much in the nursery.  Hopefully it will get painted over Christmas Break, since Michael has several days off.  I’ll be sure to post pictures then.

I also always lost at the beginning of my pregnancy, gained very little until the very end, and my first-born was 9 lbz, 10 oz. My midwife was so convinced with all 4 pregnancies that I had gestational diabetes, but I always tested negative. Strange! Glad things are going good for you! :)
