Baby Update

Last week at my appointment my midwife Jill said she might want me to have an ultrasound this week to confirm that baby was in a good position, because she was a little concerned.

We went in and she said she did want me to have the ultrasound because she just couldn't quite tell what was down there, but it didn't feel quite like the head should feel.

Turns out she is hanging out down there fist first, but her head is right down there next to it.  Apparently she thinks she might want to come out superhero style.

It was confirmed that it is her bum that has taken up residence in my right rib.  The technician said she is all on my right side - which I could have told anyone months ago, as I never ever feel her move on the left side, and all of my back pain is on the right side.  It is getting to the point now where it is hard to walk, and I keep forgetting and putting more weight on my right side than I should.  That means I fall over a lot.  But let's not dwell and complain, so moving on...

The first thing the technician said was that she could see a lot of hair.  I just have to wonder how they can tell what is hair in all that grey fuzziness, but she was very confident that there was a lot of hair.  We'll find out when she's born, I guess!

It was also confirmed that baby is in fact a girl.

Well, I guess that's the update from around here.


  1. Yay for a new post! As I have told you, I have missed you. But hang in there. It won't be long now!!

  2. I know she'll be beautiful, just like your other beautiful babies. Lots of hair is great. Thinking of you!

  3. Nice wintery background choice. :)

    It is crazy when they are born with so much hair! I was shocked at how much Alice had after how little my other two had had. Sorry about the lopsidedness. :( It's crazy how close you are now! And yet . . . I keep hoping she'll wait for February. Awful of me, I know, when you are feeling so done, but I can't help it!

  4. Miss you. Hang in there. You're the superhero going on a 4th baby after your crazy complications! They're just so dang cute, aren't they?
