Now as far as Tessa and mom we are doing great, all the tests are normal. Blood pressure is normal and the doctor says that some swelling is o.k. especially after I work 12 hours. She was active as usual and so her heartbeat was a little faster than normal but I could feel her moving around awake. My belly measured 2 weeks smaller than 33 weeks, but that has been the case since the beginning of the pregnancy. It is because of my long torso that she has extra room to fit. "Our" weight gain was normal which makes me happy, I was worried I might have to begin eating healthier and that would really be a bummer. :) I plan to eat what I want until the day comes to start breastfeeding, then I think I'll try to eat a little healthier and so I can lose the baby weight!
Well, we have maternity pictures Saturday and we are really looking forward to those. Then Sunday I have my baby shower with all my coworkers, it will be so fun!
Dan said that all of her gifts from the shower make it more exciting for her to come, I agree. We can imagine her wearing her little outfits and playing with all her toys!!
Zayne continues to adjust to her new toys, especially the swing. We're trying to figure out exactly how to teach him what things are his and what are Tessa's. We are open to suggestions from those of you who've gone through this. He doesn't really know what he is in for!
Only about 6-8 weeks to go if she plans to come on time!!
Our cousin Dominic
Aunt Janelle and Cousin Lindsay
She got lots of precious and girly clothes
Her first poodle from Aunt Kathy
Dan's Mom made the cake, it was awesome!!
This is a pic of her room once I opened the presents and tried to figure out where to put everything. I told you she got a lot of gifts!!
My doctor guesses she is around 3 lbs. This is fun information for me to know because then I can look at babies at work who weigh that much and imagine how big she is. I can tell she is getting bigger because she is now kicking me in my ribs and bladder. She moves so much and we are beginning to feel the body parts and know that it is a foot or a butt.
We finished our childbirth classes this week, so technically we're all set! Yea right...I don't think you can ever prepare completely for something like this. I do know that we are equipped with the information and most of all know that we need to be flexible and not expect certain things to happen. I am mostly excited for her delivery and can't wait to see her.
