Ultrasound of Finale

So at Emily's regular checkup this week, they pulled out the small ultrasound machine and took a look-- Everything is going great. They redated the due date, again, it's now back to the original due date of October 18.

For what it's worth, here is the ultrasound image that they printed off. Normally I'm pretty good at figuring out what everything is in these, but I'm at a loss with most of this one. The circular thing is the yolk sack-- I'm not even sure which end is the head....

Let's Do the Numbers

Pippa had her 9 month appointment a couple of weeks ago. The numbers won't shock anyone that's seen her lately. She weighed 21.5 lbs (89th percentile), is 28 inches long (75th percentile) and her head is 18 inches around (90-something percentile). The doctor was completely not stressed by the fact that she's not crawling yet. Since that appointment she's learned to clap, and is starting to try and pull up on stuff. Which means she's completely lost interest in crawling. Looks like she'll take after James and just walk without crawling -- tho the doc said she will probably walk late. Yay!

Finale is making headway as well. Its fingers and toes are forming, but webbed. Eyelids are growing as is the digestive tract. The heartrate will be about 150 beats per minute. It's just over 1/2 an inch long. I've gained 3 pounds.

And in NCAA tourney news, my brackets are already screwed up. Davidson lost and Stanford looks unlikely at this point :(

Good news -- we're expecting our second child in mid-October. We are super excited. They won't be Irish twins, but they will be close -- 17 months apart. We've nicknamed this baby "Finale" because it will be the last. Whoever says "3 is the new 2" is out of their minds. I had a sonogram last week and saw the heartbeat going strong -- Finale was 3.5 mm across. I've been sick w/ this crazy 24-hour "morning" sickness which is the total pits (spaghetti and red sauce for dinner every night again), but the doctors say that's a really good sign for the viability of the baby. We're trying to figure out which room we'll empty for this one... a daunting task. No pics yet -- next sonogram is at 11 weeks.
