Last Friday I had a follow-up ultrasound to check on Baby C’s stomach and kidneys. The ultrasound tech told me to eat about an hour before, so I made sure to have a HUGE lunch. And then I was snacking on trail mix right on my drive over to the office. Luckily she was able to see his black stomach bubble right away and everything else looks good. She did some more measurements and the computer figured that he’s about 1.4 pounds and measuring right on target. I’m actually measuring 2 days early, so let’s hope it stays that way :) Definitely would not mind delivering a week early or so!
I had to buy a new pillow for my work chair today because Baby C kicks me like crazy if I lean too much forward when I’m sitting. I’m hoping the pillow will help me slouch down a little. He is so active now – it’s funny because I wanted to feel his kicks badly a few weeks ago and now that I do every day, I’m wanting him to calm down just a little. But his kicks make me feel more connected so it’s a good thing. I usually can feel the movements just when I’m laying down or sitting down for more than a few minutes, but not when standing yet. Daddy and Auntie were both able to feel them from the outside this past week, too.
