But when they went to measure the baby (which they do every week by just "feeling" and measuring with a tape), she was measuring 4 weeks behind! The midwife was pretty perplexed (downright worried) and sent me right in for an ultrasound. I tried not to worry, because it didn't make sense to me: Two weeks ago I was measuring 28 weeks and this time I was measuring 26? Babies might stop growing, but I've never heard of them shrinking! So I figured she was just "hiding" and sure enough, the ultrasound found her head way down in my pelvic bone, making it hard for the midwife to feel her (and contributing to my back ache!) No worries! She weighs 3 pounds, 9 ounces right now and has the cutest little nose! She is actually measuring one day ahead of schedule rather than 4 weeks behind, which is just fine and dandy with me :) And let's just pray that she stays head down! Anyways, I'm so thankful to catch a glimpse of my sweet little one and know that she is just perfectly healthy!
No, we haven't picked a name yet, but we did officially decide to ditch "K" names. We hope (Lord willing) to have at least one more baby after this, so she shouldn't feel left out by the lack of a "k" beginning :) And the thought of perhaps having to eventually come up with a 4th "K" name was a little too overwhelming. So anything goes!
