Well, we had the ultrasound today to see why I had a huge jump in fundal height, and, like most of you assured me, everything is fine. She is growing proportionately, I don't have too much amniotic fluid, and the placenta and umbilical cord are both fine.
However ... I have a massively large super-baby growing inside me. I am a few days away from 35 weeks, and she is measuring well past 37 weeks. In fact (give me a moment here) ... she is already almost SEVEN POUNDS. It looks like Jeremy's Hercules genes are hard at work in there.
So, obviously, I am hoping she will make her entrance into the world a little earlier than August 28th. The question is, which trait will win out: Will she be early like her mom or stubborn liker her mom?
We also got to see some great images at the ultrasound, so it was really great. We saw her little face and her little profile. We saw her wave her hands and open her mouth. AND the ultrasound tech said it was unusual, but she has SO much hair that it was even visible on the ultrasound. CRAZY! She even took a picture for us. All the little squiggly white lines around the outside of her skull are hairs:
So, all is well ... except now I will just have to mentally prepare for the possibility that I will pushing out a 12-pound baby. Pray for me.
