One Fish, Two Fish

Week 19 September 28, 2010

This week is the week before the halfway point. This is very exciting. It means I can experience great anticipation all week long that I’m nearly halfway. I also anticipate my birthday this way each year. I love to anticipate.

Baby is an heirloom tomato this week. I love heirloom tomatoes. They are best with big leaves of fresh basil, some fresh mozzarella and a little olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. At the ultrasound today, Baby measured at 9 ounces and growth is all on track for the gestational age. She should be about six inches long. It still amazes me that there is a tiny person in there growing like one of those grow-a-dinosaurs that you put in water. All the parts are there, they’re just getting bigger. It’s so strange and amazing.

Sam and I met with the new doctor today. And it was everything the other group wasn’t. It was so great! I had an ultrasound and my cervical length looks good, then I met with Dr. Jennifer Williams. She immediately turned Sam around in his stroller to play. (I think Sam has a crush, because he took a brochure with her picture on it home with him. 🙂 ) And then she said the magic words, “Here’s the plan.” Oh, how I love a plan! The plan is to keep checking cervical lengths every two weeks, and watch my blood pressure closely. Today’s was 120/68. Doesn’t get much better than that!

There are only three doctors in this clinic. I will meet all of them before delivery and it will be one of them (no residents!!) who delivers the baby. I am so glad that we switched clinics! Such a relief!

    I tried to call a minute ago hoping and praying to hear exactly what you have written. That’s great! We’re on our way to the (elder) Deneen’s- talk with you later!

    Oh, Kristin, how I love your writing–and YOU, of course!! This is such a highlight in my week (I don’t visit your site every day since I am at work–tee, hee)!! Did I say “congratulations, I am very happy for you”?? If not, I just did!! How fun that Sam was with you at the doctor appointment!!!

    Thanks, Becky! It’s been weird getting back into the swing of things with writing the blog. But I’m so glad that I’ve started again — now #2 can have the same kind of virtual baby book that Sam has. 🙂
