A little lookie lou ...

thing 2 -- 29 weeks, originally uploaded by toyfoto.

A banner day at the ob's office: intake of yucky glucose drink on empty stomach at 8:30 a.m. followed by an ultrasound, which because of position (me, lying on my back, not baby who is still breech presentation) made me want to vomit, and then, finally, a quick (surprise) visit with the doctor. I was actually at work a few minutes later than my usual arrival. Go figure.

The stats look like this:

*I fully expect to fail the simple glucose test -- because I did with Annabel -- and will be required to take the three-hour tolerance version.

*Thing 2 is measuring right at 29 weeks, weighing in at 2 pounds six ounces. The doctor says that's solidly in the 50th percentile. He's happily swimming around and poking me in the left side with his feet, not caring at all about the numbers game we're playing out here.

*Also, with 10 weeks left to go, I am officially one pound away from attaining the total weight gain I had with Annabel.

*The rash has now been conclusively determined to be PUPPPS. So that means it's here for the remainder of the pregnancy and might even get worse.

*AND .... (imagine drumroll here) Thing 2 has a tentative potential birthdate. ... Although not set in stone, it looks like the surgery schedule for the c-section will be June 18 or 19th ... two weeks before the due date.

I can't believe it's only two months away. Where did the time go?

Did "we" know you were having a boy??? Do you have a name picked out yet?? How exciting. I didn't realize you were so far along.

You take wonderful pictures, but I gotta say-that tech who took these did a great job!

The collective "you" were informed that it was a boy back at 17 weeks ... Whenever that was ... I suppose I should link it ...

I can't remember what I ate for lunch today so pay no attention to me. Wait, I had green beans and cheesy potatoes. My bad.

Congrats on the little guy!

No worries. I added the link to the orginal announcement anyway.

I’m sure there is a baby in there somewhere; I could never read those things any way

Only two more months!! The last picture I seen of your stomach you did not even look pregnant, I have seen bigger beer belly’s.

I’m sure you peoples are playing the name game, have you decided?
I have read some of Ittybits suggestions and I think “Sidewalk” is a really cool name for a boy… (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

Actually I look forward to Annabel’s reactions to the new addition to the family, especially when he cries all night long, maybe then she will appreciate a full nights rest… than again, she will probably sleep right threw it all.

Stay well, Kcoz

Two months left? Really? Wow, time is flying. I can't wait to "meet" him!

Whee! Pick June 18, that's my birthday!

And if it is either the 18th or 19th, I won't be able to send you a congratulatory e-missive unless I get some connectivity in Reykjavik. It's the Icelandic Day of Independence on the 17th, so I'd say any of those days are good :)
