A Small Pumpkin? Seriously?

Monday, February 22, 2010

According to BabyCenter.Com...

How your baby's growing:

It's hard to say for sure how big your baby will be, but the average newborn weighs about 7 1/2 pounds (a small pumpkin) and is about 20 inches long.

A small pumpkin - okay, seriously little boy, it's time to come out & say hello to Mommy, Daddy & your big sister! I don't want to wait till this is updated to "watermelon"!! And given the fact that he's the size of a "small pumpkin" he can't really move around too much so every time he decides to kick me it's in the same exact spot so I have a permanent sore spot from getting pummeled from the inside! I am going to get to see him this morning, though - via ultrasound. I have an appointment at 11:00. I am anxious to see him one way or another!!

We did have a good weekend, though. Friday night I really did think I was going into labor, but the pains passed with out anything happening. Saturday morning my brother, nephew & parents came over. My brother, nephew & Michael installed our shiny new kitchen sink - I love it!!! It's sad that a kitchen sink is what excites me now! LOL - it is pretty, though! I was so ready to get rid of the porcelain one. I just knew I was going to love it, but no way - stainless is the only way I'll go from now on! After my brother & nephew left we went to eat with my parents (that's where the picture in my previous post is from).

We rode with them and when they brought us back to the house & were getting ready to leave Emma asked to go home with them. We weren't planning on it, but she really wanted to go and made it apparent she wasn't going to be happy if she couldn't go with Teta & Geddo - so we packed her clothes & got her church dress & off they went - mother sent me a picture less than 10 minutes later and she was passed out again - she didn't wake up until the next morning!!  She went back to sleep after church, too & when Michael and I got there for lunch she was still napping so I got in the bed with her and she woke up!

When we got home on Sunday Michael & I were both feeling a bit yuck - sinus congestion is kicking our butt on top of me feeling like I'm about ready to pop so we took it easy the rest of the evening to get ready for the weekly grind this AM. I was anxious to get up and get the day going actually b/c I am ready for my ultrasound this morning and to see if we're making any progress yet! I'll give another update after my appointment this morning!
