Embrace the camera.

Alternatively titled: Embrace the belly. But first you have to hear about my sonogram update. For those of you that missed the memo, baby girl still has all her lady parts. She didn't manage to grow any wenises since December. Amen, thank you Jesus.

The sono tech also gave us another picture of said lady parts, but it almost feels like child pornography to post such intimate pictures of her privates.

Instead, I give you monster belly at 29 weeks:
28 weeks

I'm no longer measuring small but right on track. Baby girl's weight was estimated to be around 2 lbs, 13 oz. We all know that sonogram estimates and can be off by +/-10 oz., so I'm taking that with a grain of salt. I am, however, still managing to say stretch mark free: 
28 weeks

My fluid level was a bit low (9 cm) and so I go back for another scan next week. Dr. Google tells me that 5-25 cm is a normal level of amniotic fluid, so I just have to stay above 5 cm.
28 weeks headless
 
Otherwise, things are great. My biggest complaint is heartburn. Some nights are worse than others. I might also be a wee bit hormonal (read: grouchy) but I'll never tell. I'm sure if you ask Matt, he would report that I am a joy to live with. Actually I believe his exact words would be, "Happy wife, happy life."

I've only got about 10 weeks left which is incredibly hard to believe and completely manageable. Remember my first ten twenty weeks? Oh, me either. I have blocked the painful memory from my head. The only parts I do vaguely remember involved the couch and the toilet.
