Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: BabyHarris Update 7/20/2007

BabyHarris Update 7/20/2007

Here's another update for ya...

I got a call from the doctor today to go over some of the results from my second sonogram I had on Wednesday.  My doctor is not one to change due dates because he thinks those are just basic estimates anyway, so as long as the dates are close, he doesn't like to change them...   However, he has officially changed my due date from 11/29 to 11/22.

11/22 is THANKSGIVING day!!  I imagine the day will be:  Get up, watch a parade or two, head to my mom's, get ready for the Cowboy's game, we eat around 2pm, have some Turkey, have some Apple pie, and then head to the hospital... Any side bets on if that scenerio works??

She's 494 grams which is 1 pound 1 ounce, give or take 2 ounces.  I put some cookies in a bag to weigh out 1lb1oz and had Mike hold the bag... boy was he surprised at how much that weighed and it's becoming more real.  He even smiled!

Amniotic Fluid is at 9cm. He said it's still in the "normal" range but at the low end of the normal range, so he's going to keep an eye on that.  I asked if there was anything I could do to make that number better, and he said no, but I'll drink more water and see if that helps, though I'm already floating away with all the water I drink!

Anyway, everything is going well, and it looks like I might have a Scorpio instead of a Sagatarius!!

Good for you Donna....Just hope and pray my Pittsburg Steelers are not in town to spoil your football game but I hope and pray all goes well with the blessing your are carrying.  It is nothing short of a miracle and a blessing from our good Lord.  I wish you all the best and I hope you are not made at me for being a HUGE Steelers fan :-)

The doc wouldn't change our date for the first child, even after we informed them that they miscalculated.

We were dead on... they weren't

go figure

Donna...SURE the day will go like that! And you forgot to mention the fact that you might work in a few deals too! I mean, come on! If you were really committed you might even do some showings on the way to the hospital. No time to get lazy! ;)

$1k?? Ummm, maybe I spoke out of turn??  LOL!

And I don't really care who the Cowboys play anymore.  I don't even recognize over 90% of the names so it's not fun anymore... kinda like the Rangers.  I have no idea who all these new players are.

I just don't want to ruin the day for the doctor.  I'm sure he wants his apple pie too...

That's great to know your baby girl is progressing so well. I am at 26 weeks now, just had a sonogram this past Wednesday. Mine is weighing around 1 lb 9oz. but I am tiny to begin with. My husband is not a muscle man either. I really think my baby will be around 5lbs plus... I barely made it to 5 lbs when I was born... Dont expect a big baby from me.

Wow, Loreena, you were small!!  I was 9 lbs 6 oz!!  Life starting weight doesn't always predict adult weight. However, I started out underweight before the pregnancy, so I'm supposed to gain close to 40 pounds... which will make me heavier than my husband! I have not had too much of an increased appetite yet, though I've gained 16 pounds already!!

Just remember that the fat babies sleep better. =)  So grow baby, grow!  And my birthday is November 22, it's a great day (except that no one remembers in years it falls on Thanksgiving), my daughter was born on November 19.  I'm glad you're feeling good and progressing well!

Leigh, well lucky you because it's on Thanksgiving this year!!  At least you won't just have one cake, you'll have various pies to choose from.  Stick some candles in one and see if anyone notices!!

Cheryl, Thank you.  I will be posting lots more as I'm barely 5 and a half months... long time to go.
