Progression-

SIL2 is healing well, very exhausted though. She did end up with 2 blood transfusions directly after her c-section, then 2 more transfusions the next morning. Baby is doing great too.

We went over to see them the other day, he was so cute. Nombie started moving, or kicking, at the nephew as I held him; now that felt weird! Holding a baby while your own kicked it from inside you... haha, yeah. I couldn't help but think, "I might actually have one of these in a few months." That felt surreal. I might actually have a baby.

Tomorrow is 29 weeks. Yeah, that's pretty AMAZING. We went ahead and had an elective 3d/4d ultrasound because honestly, this is probably our first/last chance, and damn it I WANTED one. I know I'd regret not getting it done: even if things went perfectly, but especially if something goes wrong. Nombie was uncooperative, to say the least. He is breech, with his face mashed up against the lovely anterior placenta, and he was totally folded in half. He kept putting his feet in his mouth, like "Toes... YUM." It was cute, but it made getting good face shots really difficult. After we got him to move his feet, he decided he needed to suck his thumb. And then he put his feet back in his face. Hahahaha... nice.


You can see his face and feet/toes on the right in this one, and his arm up under his chin.

My husband's response: while he thought some of it was cute, he refers to 3d/4d ultrasounds as "the melting baby pictures." I think they creep him out a little... and some of them, yeah, can't say I blame him! But the good shots are so cute.

This one is just a better face shot :) He's got the chubbiest little cheeks. So in love.

That is awesome, I have to tell you dude, you need to update more frequently now or I will be worrying. Ok? Good. :)

With Peter they tried to do a 3d for us and he would not cooperate AT ALL. All we could see was his ear.

Your baby is precious and I am so excited for you!

Rebecca said...

Adorable. Melting baby huh? Never thought of that one, yeah I guess it sort of does look like it is melting. But still he is so cute!

Thanks ladies :)

Celia, will try to! I have a post or two in the drafts, I just haven't posted them. My mom is driving me nuts, and I'm debating about how much to share/not share... so that's why I was quiet for a bit. Sorry about that ;)

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog - I've now found yours, and it's really interesting and affirming for me to read your last few posts about the experience of pregnancy. I'm not that far behind - 23 weeks- and still have days myself when I can scarcely believe that the pregnancy will result in an actual baby. I also have trouble "telling" people. I get a little shy about it, and often try to change the topic. Perhaps it's just that it still feels like part of the infertility journey. I'm so impressed with the progress in your nursery. Ours has yet to morph from a second bedroom containing my craft stuff.
