We had our regularly scheduled Dr's appt yesterday and we got to have another ultrasound. Everything with the little one is good - we were actually told he is measuring a little big at this point (oh joy). Right now he is measuring about 32 weeks 5 days so that is about 2 weeks ahead of where I am technically at. My Dr reassured me that this doesn't necessarily mean he will be big at birth, but for now he is just measuring a little bigger. I already know he will be bigger than Brookie - one b/c he's a boy and 2 b/c I am just eating so much more this time around - I was lucky to keep much of anything down when I was pregnant with Brooklynn so she was probably getting the minimal amount she needed. This time - I L.O.V.E. food....lol. So he's getting whatever he wants when he wants it. But thats ok - I definitely don't miss the constant nausea.
I also experienced something new yesterday that I never did with Brookie. I started having Braxton Hicks contractions...I was a little alarmed when they started around 5:30am yesterday morning when I was still in bed. I felt better knowing that I had my Dr's appt a few hours later, so she reassured me thats all they were and are completely normal. I never had any kind of cramping and or/contractions with Brooklynn until the real ones started the day I went into labor - and there was NO mistaking those ones for what they were. My Dr told me that with each pregnancy these things present themselves a little earlier so I can't imagine what people that have a lot of kids feel like with all these little things going on. I've had the same thing with the round ligament pains this time - never had them before, now I have them a lot. But its all for a good cause..so I'll deal with it.
Anyway....during my ultrasound yesterday, we were getting some awesome views of the little onee and I got some really sweet pics. I have been debating on trying for a 3D ultrasound again for this one - with Brookie, we could never get a good shot of her b/c of her position so I was hesitant to spend the extra money again to try this time around. Well yesterday was my lucky day.....the technician switched the machine over to the 3D one about half way through and we got to really see what he is looking like these days. We both think he looks exactly like Brooklynn did - definitely has my nose again and that little pouty lip....lol. Can't wait to see him when he gets here. Anyway....here are the pics...enjoy!!
