I know this isn't a real post or anything, but thought you may want to see me naked. Not completely you pervert, just my belly! 34 weeks. Inducing in 38 (hopefully!). Anyone else ready to meet her?

PS If I'm in a favorites list on your fotolog, this picture looks way funny and distorted! :)

a real post. I'm tired, achy, sore and just plain not wanting to think. Sorry. I'll get you that post soon. Just so you don't have to leave empty handed, how about a picture? This is a picture of the triplets over Thankgiving weekend.

Growth Spurts

Very interesting appointment today. So let's get down to it. Here is where Babycenter says baby should be at this point:

This week your baby weighs about 4 1/4 pounds and measures 17 inches long. By now, she's probably head-down in your uterus — most babies are at this point — although she may continue to change positions. Her skull bones are still pliable and aren't completely joined, to ease her exit through the birth canal.

That's not exactly where our baby is. The ultrasound was tons of fun though, it is definitely a GIRL! She is head down and has lots of hair! You could see it on her neck. Those are knees that keep pushing into everything, and like I suspected she has her feet hooked in my ribs. Here is where it gets interesting. Baby girl weighs.... five pounds two ounces!!! She is measuring 35 weeks 4 days. (I'm technically 33 weeks 2 days.) Go take a look at her beautiful face. I know it's just me, but she is the most gorgeous baby I've ever seen. So with that we went on to see the doctor...

Fundal (uterus) height is up. Usually you grow two centimeters in two weeks which is what I have been doing. This week though revealed that I grew 3 centimeters in 2 weeks! Dr. says we will do another ultrasound at 37/38 weeks. If baby is still big, and my cervix is favorable, she will induce. So we are looking at having a baby around January 17thish. So we'll see. That was my exciting morning... now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

It's snowing. It dropped at least two inches on the ground between last night and this morning. Tomorrow is our ultrasound! yay! I really don't know why I'm that excited, but I am. I want to know how much she weighs and to know that she definitely is a she. I had a dream the other day that it was a boy instead. In the dream I had gone in for the ultrasound and ended up actually having the baby then. Which would be fine by me. :) (As long as shes healthy of course.)

I bought her snowsuit yesterday. It's very cute, not exactly what I wanted, but it will work. My mom called to tell me that for xmas her and my stepdad decided to buy us the playpen/bassinet. That is what I'll be using in our room. She said she also through the boppy on to the order but didn't tell my stepdad. heh. She said he may be a bit "surprised" when he gets the bill. Things seem to be coming together, maybe because I had an absolute meltdown with my mom the other day about the stuff that I still need and such. I guess she'll always be my mom and take care of me, huh?

We're going to their house now, so I'll update tomorrow after the ultrasound. :)
