35 Week Sonogram

Yesterday, I had my 35 week sonogram and appointment. Before the appointment, my husband and I joked that our little girl would probably hide from the sono tech and we wouldn't get a good look at her. Well, I guess you could say that we already know our sweet little daughter, all too well...

This is the best picture we got. She was covering her sweet little face with her hands, and she was sucking her thumb! It was the cutest thing ever. My heart was literally filled to the brim while watching her. I just can't even explain how much I love her already!

She is currently in the 50th percentile for weight at 5 lbs. 12 oz. This makes me happy and also gives me a sense of validation of how uncomfortable I've been feeling lately. Carrying around a little bowling ball in your stomach all day is bound to make anyone a little sore and tired, right? (Secret is, she's worth it.)

Because of some other symptoms I've been having lately, I had to go through an unexpected stress test at the appointment yesterday. Everything went well, which was a relief.

To be quite honest, this little baby girl is absolutely perfect. She has passed every test and she has reached every milestone throughout this pregnancy; much to my surprise. I think that I expected less because my body is so imperfect that I couldn't believe that it would be capable of making such a perfect baby. Then, it hit me. This isn't all me. She is doing so well and she is with me, only by the grace of God.

This appointment has only made me more thankful, and more excited, as I anticipate her arrival.
