|Just me, lounging around.|
WITNESS THE CUTE BABY PICTURES!!!
|No more tail! That big thing behind me is the umbilical cord.|
|Look! I have arms! I call this one "Wax on, wax off"|
So that's little baby. We're really happy that everything is moving along as expected.
Some measurements of the Neural Tube were taken today, and they don't see any signs of what I call "The Big Scary Diseases"...things like Spina Bifida, Downs Syndrome, or Trisomy 18 (I really don't know exactly what that is, but it sounds scary). They also took some blood to check a few other things. If I don't hear anything back on that blood work, no news is good news. In another two months they'll probably do some additional tests, including Amniocentesis (which involves a long needle) and some more blood draws.
My waistline continues to expand, and my wardrobe choices get smaller and smaller every day. On Tuesday I went to a client meeting and felt like I was there in my pajamas (because I don't have a maternity suit yet). I think I may have to go shopping for one rather soon because it felt really awkward, especially since I really don't look all that "pregnant" yet. I just look "plump".
I finally gave in and bought some 'sensible' shoes the other day...meaning shoes that don't have 4-inch heels. They're kind of boring, but it's probably better that I don't teeter around in sky-high heels as I continue to become more top-heavy.
That's all for now. I just realized it's almost 9:00. No wonder I'm so tired. Quite a day!
