Staying warm & cozy...
My little Panda Butt is the size of a rutabaga! Baby's lungs are going through some major developments these days, which (combined with the opening of previously plugged nostrils) means she's now able to practice inhaling and exhaling. The lack of air in my womb means every "breath" is filled with amniotic fluid. 27 weeks means I am officially in my 3rd trimester!!!! This little babe is going to be here before we know it and I am preparing for her every single day even if it just a little cleaning or crocheting she is always on my mind.
Today we had an ultrasound and got to see a perfectly clear picture of her little face. I'm in love with her little nose it's just like her daddy's! My mom and Jeremiah both got to come so that was nice too. She is currently weighing 2 lbs. 11 oz. and has chubby cheeks. The doctor said everything looks good and she seems to be right where she needs to be as far as size goes. They are monitoring her size closely due to my diabetes because they can sometimes get too big, too fast. So I just keep praying she will stay within the right range and healthy.
This last weekend she got to attend her first Christmas party (in my belly) and we took pics in our first "big" snow of the season!
