HOWE cool are 3D ultrasounds? Well, let me tell you! Jeff and I went in today for our high-tech ultrasound to see Harper at 31 weeks. It was ah-maaaazing! We clearly saw this little girl... her little nose, her big lips, her adorable chin! (Oh, and her parts down under...THANK GOODNESS she is still, in fact, a girl! Otherwise, we would have had a pink room-living little boy!)
We think we can attribute the lips to Jeff, and the chin seems to come from me. What a sigh of relief to see this perfectly normal looking baby as she slumbered in her temporary digs. She weighs about 3 lbs, 12 oz - praying that she doesn't gain much more than another 3 lbs in these last weeks! Jeff and I both weighed slighly over 7 lbs, so I'm hoping that Harper will follow along the same path! Our tiny little childbirth instructor informed us she has given birth to a 7.5 lb baby and a 9.3 lb baby...talk about YIKES on the second baby! That just sounds ginormous to me!
We were given September 16th as our due date for the second time today. Dr. K originally estimated September 17th, but both ultrasounds have indicated September 16th. I don't think Dr.K will officially change the due date since it is only a day off. However, I really, really wouldn't mind if she felt like showing up in the first week of September. I can't quite fathom this pregnancy business going on for another nine weeks - we are getting too impatient! :)
That is all - carry on!
