Day #70

Dear Chewie,

Everything is going great, you're healthy - i'm healthy. The doctor said you measure at 32 weeks already, and we're only at 30! Currently you weigh 3 lbs 15 oz. A big baby, the doc said. He put you in the 75th percentile.

Daddy and i looked at your brain, your beating heart, we saw your thighs, and your kidneys. When asked if we wanted to know if you're a little girl Chewie or a little boy Chewie, your dad wasted no time saying no! we're going to wait for the big surprise.

You are the absolute highlight of my whole day. When the doctor finally moved the ultrasound to show your perfect face, i couldn't help but start crying. I could see you there. Your little cheeks, your tiny hands, i was smacked in the face with a wave of love for you. Even though we didn't find out your sex, i had a feeling of "That's my little ______!!!"

At the appointment with Dr. X, she measured my belly and verified what the ultrasound had already told us... you're going to be a big little one. Oh, and some other good news is that mommy's blood sugar is fine... y'know what that means?? oh yeah, no Gestational Diabetes for me! WOO! i can't wait to have an ice cream cone!! yes!! And it turns out the Dr. X has no problem doing delivery in a squat or on all fours! Things are coming up roses baby!

i can't stop looking at your little cheeks.
i love you so much.

Love Mama

Fetal thighs are the BEST! Just wait until you can squeeze and munch on the real thing!

ps - the "sacramento, california" who arrived from my blog is my sister! Really like that traffic feed:)

That kid is totally going to be born a leo if he/she is that size already. Take that!

Oh, everything sounds wonderful! I'm so happy for you and your little family! What a gorgeous and healthy sized child you have there. :) Um, is that a martini glass in his/her left hand? For a second I thought I saw, never mind. LOL. Maybe they just start young in Canada. ;) Seriously, I'm so happy for you I could bust. I promise I won't though because who wants to clean up THAT mess! :)
