37 weeks 6 days

Basically we are playing the waiting game on the arrival of our little one. We are 38 weeks tomorrow, and it seems like the next 2 weeks can't go fast enough!

We had an ultrasound on Thursday to try and determine the weight. At our last appointment, the doctor thought the baby was really "solid", and after I mentioned that Brian weighed 10 lbs when he was born, she suggested the ultrasound to make sure we weren't looking at double-digits for our Baby Girl! Of course, I didn't object, considering I want to see her every chance I get!

If you can't tell what you are looking at, simply hover the mouse over the photo, and our "sketch" image should appear. This should help you to make it out!

The ultrasound was great, and confirmed that she is indeed a girl, that she is head down, and that she currently weighs 6 lbs 15 oz, which will put her around 8 lbs if she makes it to 40 weeks!

Me on the other hand... my blood pressure was elevated, as was my protein,  and with the swelling and headache I've experienced over the past week, there is a little concern that there may be pre-eclampsia. Nothing to get too alarmed over at this point in the pregnancy, but it did mean more blood work for me, as well as 24 hours of urine collection to determine kidney function is normal. Plus, I go back to the doctor on Monday for a Non-Stress Test (NST) to make sure all is well.

Otherwise, I'm still working, and life is going on pretty normal these days, although a lot more time is being spent in the recliner, which I'm not complaining about! Just glad it's the weekend!

And a very happy birthday to our niece Graham! Sorry we are missing the celebration!
