I'm actually beginning to believe I'm going to bring this baby girl home from the hospital when she's born. I went to my regular appointment yesterday, and they had the report from the radiologist.
Everything looked wonderful. They got good pictures of the heart, kidneys, brain, legs, abdomen and all the other important body parts. The only thing they weren't able to see were the hands, but the radiologist isn't too worried about it. Neither I am. She waved at us at one point and then put her hands over her face, so I know they are there. And, they sure didn't look clenched to me.
She weighs 13 ounces and is about 10 inches long. I'm now wondering how much bigger than Tessa she will be. Tessa weighed five pounds, seven ounce and was 17 inches long at full-term. Will Ella/Emily/Elizabeth/Sophia/Caroline/Colleen (LOL) be that small or a lot bigger? I need to know if I should buy preemie clothes because when Tessa was born, nothing fit her and we had to go and buy some for her.
I had gained a total of two more pounds, making me up to nine. Dr. McGowen said she doesn't care if I don't gain another pound, just as long as I don't start losing. This will be wonderful, because she said if that happens, I will weigh less after the baby is born than I did before I even got pregnant. I hope so, because I gained back some of the weight I lost last year after Jenna died while I was unemployed.
Today, Tessa and I had to go to Wal-Mart to pick up the ingredients to make pies for the PTO lunch for teachers first inservice day at school tomorrow. We went over to the baby items and just oohed and ahhed over everything. Tessa picked out a onesie that said, "Drama Queen," and I chose a really cute green sleeper with a floral print and a elephant patch. It was so adorable.
I just hope I'm not jinxing myself or getting my hopes about all of it, but I feel so much better about things than I did before.
