28 weeks today! 12 weeks or less until baby girl makes her appearance. I had an ultrasound this morning and she is growing well, estimated at 2.6 lbs with a heart rate of 167. We got a better profile picture this time. I love her puckered lips! She is still head down and was kicking herself in the head when the scan first started. It was a pretty quick scan and appointment. I had to get my TDAP (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) booster and Rhogam shots, which weren't too bad, but the TDAP arm is starting to ache a bit tonight. Rhogam is given to moms with a negative blood type. If baby has a positive blood type (Parker does) it it possible that my body would produce antibodies to attack her in the event our blood mixes. This can create a whole host of issues, so it is good that this shot was invented! They will test baby girl's blood when she is born and I will have another shot if she has positive blood.
Even though I only take belly pictures every 4 weeks, I struggle to see the growth. I did notice it getting in the way last week. I kept running into doors and gates that I have been using forever! It's all part of the journey I guess. I will probably do another update in two weeks after our echocardiogram.
Hope you have a great week!
