Today we had our final scan (Canadian translation: ultrasound) before baby is born. She is little miss perfect. Her weight is exactly right (4.5 pounds). Her height is right where it should be (I think they said 19 inches). She is coming in at exactly average for everything. And she’s right on track for her due date.
We got to see her squished in little face and her spine that reminds me of a dinosaur. For the second scan in a row, the technician has said that she has long legs, so she is definitely Phil’s little one.
There’s nothing quite like seeing her. I spend most of the time feeling her. She moves and squirms and hiccups all the time. It really makes it real when you can see that little one live on the screen.
She’s already in the head down position, which means that she’s ready for the big show. And if you don’t have kids, you will find this all a bit dull. Life is just not the same since finding out we are pregnant and the things I used to glaze over at are now fascinating.
This scan below is from her 12 week scan in the middle of May. At this time she was only 10cm big. It’s amazing how all those features and development can happen on something so tiny. God, she is so loved.
