i couldn't just leave for a week without saying good-bye!
darin and i are heading up to fort bragg for a little getaway, pretty much our last one as a twosome :)
here is what i wore yesterday: a vintage Young Edwardian dress i got for a steal from etsy right when i found out i was pregnant. i utterly love the appliqued flower on the belly.
i had to wait to wear it until a day that did not require a sweater, because of the little ties at the shoulder.
it even has pockets! my favorite.
at my obgyn appointment on monday i measured "small." this is based on the fundal measurement; the doctor simply takes a measuring tape and measures from the bottom of the uterus (pelvic area) to the fundus, or the top of the uterus. i've now gained 22 pounds, so we knew my own growth was right on schedule ;) but wanted to make sure that our sweet baby is growing okay in there. so we postponed our trip by a day and i went in this morning for an ultrasound to make sure everything with little girl was right on schedule.
and....hooray! she is fine. she weighs 2 pounds 6 ounces and her growth is perfectly normal; everything is looking really great.
yay, sweet relief.
i think i'm carrying her low, i feel movements way down low in my pelvic region all the time.
so that might account for the smaller measurement of my belly, and also i think i've grown quite a bit side to side in addition to up and down.
her head is on my right side just up above my belly button. i get lots of movement there too.
even before the scan i was feeling healthy and positive, but it was nice to get reassurance before we head out on our trip.
does this belly look small to you?!
maybe i'll check in from the coffeeshop in fort bragg, and meanwhile...
i hope you all have a beautiful springly week!
