God is good. All the time. I went to the doctor last Tuesday for yet another ultrasound to check my marginal placenta previa. When I saw Dr. Simmons, she said, "You don't do anything half-way,do you?" I needed the placenta to move about .5 cm in order to attempt a vaginal delivery. Well, apparently Whatzit has been stretching my uterus with great gusto. In four short weeks, the placenta moved almost a full 3 cms. Yeah!
Weight gain up to this point is 10 pounds, but I feel like I'm putting on a pound a day.
When Dr. Simmons went to listen to the baby's heartbeat, Whatzit kicked the doppler. Dr. Simmons said, "You were not kidding about this kid being a violent kicker and mover." This baby moves so much that I sometimes fear my motion sickness is going to kick in. I can watch my stomach "jump." Kenly finally felt the baby move for the first time. Most of the time she's too impatient to sit and wait for a good kick. I know she felt it because her eyes got huge. Whatzit regularly kicks Adam when gives me a hug when he arrives home for work.
I'm starting to really wonder about this kiddos gender. I'm tired of using it or baby to describe the life within. Only 7 short weeks until we find out. Any guesses? Want to make a wager?
