Meet Baby "Grape"

Meet Baby "Grape" (as Andy has named our little bundle of joy!)....

Today I was surprised to get another ultra sound, at my OB appointment. And it was SO cool to see how much this little baby has grown in just 4 weeks. Everything looked great. Baby is even measuring LARGER than before and the new due date is 1/6/2010 (the sooner the better, I think!). Heart rate was 175 BPM (I hear that girls have faster heart rates than boys...hmm) and baby measured at about 2.25 inches. The baby was face up, which was kind of cool, because we could see the eyes, nose and mouth- kinda creepy, becaue the little thing looks like an alien. I gained no weight (and as some of you may remember...I don't gain weight well), so I was told to eat whatever I wanted (yesss). Ummm.... I think that's all to report. We are thrilled! :) I am feeling better, which is such a blessing, and I feel like I am improving everyday. Ahh to feel normal again! :)

glad to hear everything is going well!

and... it must be nice to feel "normal" during a pregnancy. i don't think i ever felt "good" until 3 months AFTER the baby came out! ;)

Brittany, how fun. I'm glad to hear everything is going fine, beside the yucky sickness, but that grape is developing well.

Heh - did you see my 4D ultrasound from 12 weeks? The baby's eyes were on the side of his head. *shudder* It was ... adorable? Heh.

Love your little alien...errr...baby grape. ;) I agree, the little ones are a bit alien-ish when they are so young in the tummy. Which?? your little tummy looks great! I think I popped out the second I knew I was pregnant when my #2 and you are on #3!
