I met my new doctor this week. I really like her and felt comfortable taking her on as my new doc. I like her because she's Asian.. and when I think of Asian, I think of smart:) She told me some things that justify how I have been feeling lately. I feel GINORMOUS!!!! She said I am measuring bigger than my due date... or I am just going to have a big baby. That makes me happy... big baby=healthy baby:) So, she ordered me an ultrasound to check the size of this girl.
Eric and I went in for the ultrasound today. It was exciting to see our baby again. Before the tech began the ultrasound she said, "When it comes to ultrasounds, the babies don't get cuter the farther along you are." She wasn't kidding.. haha. She did a 3-D ultrasound which kind of creeps me out... you can see bits and pieces of her face, but then the rest is distorted or blacked out. But I will tell you now... she looks nothing like me and very much like Eric. Anyway.. I still have 5 1/2 weeks until my due date and my baby weighs 6 pounds, 8 ounces!!!! Boom baby!
Then the ultrasound tech told me and Eric some things I new already... what parts of my baby are jammed up into my ribs all the time. I knew it was her bum or feet.. turns out, it's both. In my left ribs, her bum is fighting for space, and she likes to kick and shove her feet into my right ribs. It's okay... I let her do it because she's my baby girl. I can't even remember what it's like to slouch... if I do, it hurts my ribs even more.
Alright, so I see my doctor again in less than 2 weeks... that's when we can talk about this ultrasound. I have a feeling she'll just tell me, "you are having a big baby".... but what I wish she would tell me is... "your baby is so big, let's just induce you and have her right now.".... or at least say, "Let's move your due date up a week." Let's do this already!!!
