Baby Update

If all goes to according to plan, five weeks from today will be Baby X's birthday eve.  At my appointment last week she weighed 4 lbs 13 oz.  She was consistently slightly below average in weight and well above average in femur length - just like her dad.  But in the last three weeks she jumped above average in weight.  I was a little concerned since I was not well for a few days.  But she kept kicking and growing!  

For me physically things are going remarkable well.  I feel better than I recall at this point with the other babies.  I hope it lasts.  I constantly receive comments about being so small.  Maybe it is just to be nice?  But it is certainly better than wow you are huge.  

I am not superstitious but I am  guarded.  I've procrastinated on preparations but find myself drawn to the tasks.  I picked up diapers last week.  Her car seat is coming soon.  The milk will come in ready or not. An industrial pump arrived today.  I am determined for her not to have severe jaundice like Caroline and George.  She is getting a top-up after every feed.  Brent has the travel ban in his calendar.  Her bows are in transit from my American bow source. 

Now just to hope and wait....hmmm...

A wonderful update sister but it is missing one thing... a belly shot! I think Caroline needs to take a belly shot photo of this pregnancy too (she did such a good job for George's pregnancy) so that those of us across the pond can see the cute tiny baby bump. :) Can't believe she will be here in 5 weeks. So exciting and I know everything will come together for you. I'm so happy you get to buy bows again! One of my favorite things to buy for my own sweet girls. :)
