Or should I say... will have to due? Now that was funny right there.
Things are going pretty well on the baby front. I'm feeling about the same. Tried more easily, hips hurt at night, jaw pops out of socket, and generally feeling HUGE. But other than that, I can't complain. I know things could be worse.
My cousin Lindsay went into early labor because she had Eclampsia, Edema, and dangerously high blood pressure. She had her baby boy yesterday and she was just barely 34 weeks along. He had to be taken to NICU right away because his lungs and kidneys weren't ready. Praise the Lord though, he's breathing on his own today and doing much better. So, I'm grateful for the good health God has given me. I really am.
Anyway, I had my final ultrasound today. Mom, Grandma, and Elijah came along too. It was amazing to see him in 3D. He has chubby cheeks, sweet little lips, and the ultrasound tech said he has tons of hair (over an inch long already!). He weighed in at 6 pounds, 5 ounces. Heart rate was 151. And fluid levels are just right. Nice and healthy. After the fun part, Dr. B did a swab for beta strep and "while she was down there" checked for any progress. I'm a little more than 1 cm, but not quite 2. Nothing to get excited over. I walked around for weeks with Elijah much further along than this.
So, here's baby boy's first real photo!
