Happy New Year, everyone! (Never mind that it is January 19, and I am actually 32 weeks pregnant.) Flashback to 3 weeks ago...
2013 was a great year. Matt was baptized, we celebrated 2 years of marriage, I accepted a fellowship position in hematology/oncology, and I've been carrying our precious baby girl for the last 7 months! Our hearts are so full, and we feel so blessed. I can't even wrap my head around what 2014 is going to be like with Charlotte here!
We had our check up this week, which included our second anatomy ultrasound, and everything looks perfect! Charlotte weighed 3 lbs 6 oz, which is the 60th percentile. My doctor estimates that at term she will weigh 7.5-8 lbs. We can tell that she has hair. She has also turned head-down and is no longer breech! I know I still have 11 weeks to go, but I was starting to get a little worried that she was going to stay breech. I will say that things are much more uncomfortable since she's vertex, but I'm very happy about it nevertheless. As for me, I have gained TWENTY pounds. I'm not quite sure how to classify my bellybutton these days either. All in all, I'm feeling great and just so thankful everyday for this healthy baby girl.
Katie and Wes built Charlotte a toy box this weekend! I'm quite impressed with Uncle Wes's handiwork. They wrote a sweet note to her on the bottom of it, and I can't wait to put it in her nursery! It is such a special gift.
