- I went last week for a check-up. I have gained another 5 pounds (10 total) and the baby's heartbeat was strong and steady. Good girl!
- Today I had a follow-up ultrasound to get some more measurements of the spine. The tech confirmed, that yes, the baby is a girl. She was laying transverse - across my belly with her face down. I got to see her face only for a few seconds. She was opening and closing her mouth. She has her daddy's lips! The tech said the baby is 11 ounces. (Okay, so where did the other 9+ pounds come from?) She also said she has big feet. That I am happy about - I struggle finding shoes to fit my small feet - hopefully I can go out and buy her all kinds of cute shoes when she gets older.
- Jay is already being protective of his little girl. Last night he told me I can't get her ears pierced as a baby. He said she can decide if she wants to get them done when she is a teenager. I almost died laughing at that one. He has absolutely NO clue what he is in for yet! Poor guy, I almost feel bad for him. Not having sisters growing up has surely kept him sheltered in the ways of little girls and their daddies. He will learn. I give the baby about 5 minutes before he is completely wrapped around her little tiny finger.
