Shrinking

I had an ob appt yesterday… and I have not gained any weight in the last 2 weeks. Surprising seeing that it was Christmas…   anyway, they measured my fundal height (the length of your uterus) 2 weeks ago. It should be a cm for each week of pregnancy.. so I am 31 weeks it should be 31cm plus or minus 3cm. 2 weeks ago I was 28cm.. and now I am 27cm. So, next week I get to go in to a amniotic fluid check and growth check.. the midwife did say it could be that 2 different people measured me but they are going to check her growth anyway. So, of coarse I am concerned, but I am looking forward to seeing her face again 🙂

I also video taped my belly moving.. kinda cool. Gotta figure out how to put it on here though..

22 again.. and a new bump

Well, the number 22 has crept up again. We closed on our new house on Nov 22nd! I love it! It is beautiful with lots of room, an acre of land and a pool/hot tub. We are a bit away from town.. but it is quiet and you can see all the stars at night 🙂
Also, Ray found out the sex.. so I will say it.. It’s a GIRL!! Her name will be Avery Marin. Why Marin you ask.. we just like it and it means “of the sea” which we also like.. I looked at 2010’s top 100 baby names and Avery was #22 for girls…. there it is again! So strange.

 

She must be a looong baby. Or just likes my rib cause I have rib pain and heartburn daily. I take Zantac and eat tums like breath mints. At least she will have strong bones.. I must be taking in at least 4000+ mg of calcium a day. No bone loss for me! She has been really active the last couple days… not just kicks but whole body movements. It’s an amazing feeling. I wish I had a window to see her 🙂

Here’s the latest bump shot at 28 weeks 3 days
