Sweet Pea Update

Today I had another baby appointment.  They also did another ultrasound to make sure that the baby's growth and development is staying right on track.  Well, we did the ultrasound first and got to see our sweet little baby. 

It was amazing to see how much it had grown in just a few weeks.  Everything still looks wonderful.  The baby is on the petite side (still) but following the growth curve perfectly around the 50th percentile.  The baby is frank breech (head and feet up) so that explains why I feel a lot of movement but just not a lot of strong kicks.  They said not to worry about the baby being breech, that it had plenty of time to get into position.

The baby also weighs 2 pounds and 3 ounces now!

We got some super cute pictures of our Sweet Pea today!  So, of course, I had to share a couple of my favorites with you. 

The first picture is of Sweet Pea's nose and lips..  (If you can see that on there)  And it definitely has some smackers on there ;-)

The second picture is my favorite... While we were doing the ultrasound, the baby kept bringing its hands to its face.  At one point it looked like the baby was sucking its thumb, so I asked the technician, and she said she wasn't sure.  Then we saw those fat cheeks start moving, and she said YEP, it's sucking its thumb!! So she got a picture of that for us!

Now, I know that having a "thumb sucker" is not ideal in the dentistry world, but this is a HUGE deal to us.  Our sweet baby Jude has struggled from the beginning with his sucking reflex, so this sight immediately put our hearts at ease!

Once we were finished, we saw Dr. Ann.  She is so pleased with how well the pregnancy is progressing.  Her only worry was me and my cold.  She offered some antibiotics, but I refused.  She agreed that they probably weren't needed but made me promise to call if I didn't get well this week.

We are so so thankful for continued good reports and for those of you who pray for our little family!

Praise the Lord!  Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty deeds' praise him according to his surpassing greatness!  Praise You!
Psalm 150:1-2
