Friday marked a big day for Kyra. We honored her request to go see Santa. As you may remember from last year's experience, things did not go over so well. We did get a gorgeous picture out of it, though.
This year certainly lacked last year's drama. Kyra calmly waited in line until it was her turn and when that time came around she RAN to Santa and clamored onto his lap. Apparently she's no longer afraid.
Wanna know the sweetest part of this year's Santa experience? The only thing she asked Santa for was a toy box for Lydia. All together now..... Awww! How sweet!
The next exciting thing that happened to us came today. I had my 38 week check up. Not only have I lost 4 pounds (go me!) but apparently the Termite has suddenly stopped growing according to the highly trusted system of measuring my belly from my boobs to my ahem. These two things combined earned me the excitement of being shoved on over to the ultrasound tech to get some new measurements on the baby and a check on the fluid in the sack.
Everything turned out to be fabulous in the end. There is no explanation for the weight loss (possible miss weight from the scale 2 weeks ago?) but the reason the Termite measured small was because she has shifted from head down to completely sideways. Apparently I don't need to go into labor after all since she can't come out folded in half. With that said, unless she turns back to the head down position, we'll be delivering c-section no matter what. The fun news is they estimate her weight as of today to be 6lbs 3oz. Significantly smaller then Kyra's birth weight of 8lbs 5oz. I'm not certain exactly what I'll do with a normal sized baby... guess I'll have to wait one more week to find out her actual size. Though this bit of inside knowledge does make it all kinds of fun and exciting.
We did get a new picture out of the deal:
Supposedly there is a face in this photo. I have yet to see it but Jer and the ultra sound tech swear it's there. I think they're both just lying to me and it's probably nothing more then a picture of my empty stomach as it was early in the morning and I hadn't had breakfast.
What do you guys see?
