Well, we're plugging right along. I had check-ups this week with both the perinatologist and the obstetrician, and Bunny is doing very, very well. The peri's U/S tech decided to give us a treat and switched over to 3D/4D during the scan and Bunny is just so very precious. And, of course, I'm thankful that we got for free what many others pay beaucoup bucks for!
Bunny had her legs bent at her waist, crossed over one another, and had one foot on either side of her face. What a little monkey! Her arms, in turn, were straight down at her sides. She actually used her foot to scratch her cheek at one point! She continues to grow a bit ahead (in the peri's words, "we're just going to go ahead and say you're at 32 weeks now...your next U/S will be your last most likely before we see you at the hospital") and is strong as can be. So if he wants to call Wednesday 32 weeks, that puts us now at 1.5 weeks ahead. For simplicity sake, I ain't changing my ticker. At Wednesday's appointment, she was just a tad under 4 pounds and if she were to go to full term, she'd be around 8 pounds. Yikes! Have we seen my skinny hips? Thank God we're not aiming for 40 weeks! But even at 38 weeks, she'd be around 7 pounds - that's a full half-pound more than I was, and I was born late!
A few of my coworkers threw a surprise shower for me at work this week, which was really nice and totally unexpected. My team is having a little party for both me and my boss next week - called Arrivals and Departures since I've got Bunny coming and he's departing to take a promotion - but this was primarily folks from other teams that I just work with quite often. In addition, FD's sergeant sent him home with another load of hand-me-downs from their triplets last night. There's not much else we yet need - it's amazing. With some of the newest things we've gotten, I can stop worrying about getting stuff off my registry and use that money to finish stocking up on cloth diapers - yahoo!
That's all for us...I'm growing more and more uncomfortable. Like always, Bunny is pointed head down...and sometimes the pressure of her head is just incredible. Not sleeping that great - can't really get comfy - but for Bunny, I'd gladly walk to the ends of the earth. And besides...we're in the homestretch now. Hard to believe that there's really only just a few weeks to go!!
Love to everyone,
