Our Story So Far: The 3rd Trimester

Dear Baby,

We're about 2 1/2 weeks into the third trimester! Daddy and I are getting very excited! We can't wait to meet you and bring you home, but that's still a while away obviously.

There's not a whole lot to say. I started seeing the OB/GYN instead of Dr. H (our family doctor), and she says everything is going fine. She saw me in the hospital the night the HG was the worst (the time mommy and daddy had to stay overnight), and when I went to our first appointment with her, she didn't even recognize me at first! She said I looked like a completely different person now that the Zofran is working.

We've been gaining weight steadily, but not too much (but mommy's a big girl anyway, so hopefully most of the weight is you and the amniotic fluid!). Our Gestational Diabetes test came back negative, and everytime the doctor checks your heart you're still at a perfect 150!

A funny story though: You've obviously inherited your mommy's attitude! You like to move around and hide a lot when the doctor tries to hear your heartbeat (you did the same thing to the nurses everytime mommy went to the hospital too). One time, when the doctor finally found you and started counting your heartbeats, you kicked the Doppler (the machine that listens to your heart) so hard, it almost fell out of the doctor's hand! Everytime you do something that shows you already have a strong personality it makes me even more excited for November!

So keep growing and keep working on that attitude. I'm sure mommy and daddy will wind up with lots of funny stories about you over the years!


Daddy says: "Hi, Baby! Daddy loves you so much! I'm so excited for you to be born. We'll wear tiaras and have tea-parties together!"
