I was all excited to have new 3D Ultrasound pictures of Wade to post today, but he just wouldn’t pose for us.
Wade is still breech, and he’s all curled up on my right side. His face was turned away, and the technician couldn’t get any good pictures. I don’t imagine I’ll have another ultrasound, so I guess I’ll just have to wait for June to see his little face again. She did say he weights about 4 lbs. 3 oz. and everything still looks normal, so that’s good news.
David was his usual curious self, asking the technician a thousand questions. He loves to listen to the heartbeat, and kept asking to hear it over and over again. Thank goodness she’s a very patient woman with a four year old boy of her own.
For some reason when I lie flat on my back on the ultrasound table I start to get dizzy and feel nauseous. Does this happen to anyone else? It’s strange. I can lie on the table at the doctor’s office and it doesn’t bother me. But the ultrasound table sits at a different angle, and it’s really hard and uncomfortable. I had to roll over on my side to keep from getting sick.
I have to admit I cheated with the water a little bit this time. I only drank 16 oz. instead of the recommended 24, and I didn’t start until about an hour before my appointment. I also used the bathroom about four times in the 30 minutes before I started drinking the water. And I ate Oatmeal for breakfast instead of cereal. I figured I didn’t need the extra liquid from the milk in my bladder. It made things a lot more tolerable, and I wasn’t yearning for a restroom quite as badly. I still say this is cruel and unusual punishment, however.
I was 32 weeks yesterday, but really only have 7 weeks left since the doctor is planning on doing the the C-Section about one week before my due date. I meet with him Tuesday, and I think we will officially schedule the birthday.
Now we just have to get the Wade’s bedroom set up, and I guess we’ll be ready.
As ready as you can be, anyway.
