.... Eleanor's still baking and pretty cozy in my tummy. We had a doctor's apt. last Friday and she doesn't look like she's anytime coming soon, but who knows? We will go back to Hong Kong Friday to reassess the situation.
I realized this past Friday that when I was pregnant with Sawyer at this point in time, he was already here.
We are hoping to keep the plan of trying for a VBAC unless it's medically necessary to have another C-Section. I'm honestly not set one way or another, as long as she's healthy... that's all that matters to us. I would like to let my body try to do what it was made to do, so I'm going to let this lady come on her own time. Patience and enjoying surprises are not my most redeeming qualities, so I am starting to get anxious about her arrival. Also, our doctor will not induce me because I've already had a C-Section, so hopefully she will come in a "somewhat" timely manner.
Below is a picture of Sawyer & Eleanor's 4D ultrasounds. Is it just me, or does she look like Sawyer's twin?! I remember looking at his ultrasound thinking, "He looks like an alien!" Now looking at it, I definitely see Sawyer, even though his face is a bit smooched.
Sawyer (left) & Eleanor (right)
Weight gain: 64.1 kgs at my last apt. or 141 lbs
Maternity clothes: Yes! I cannot wait to wear normal clothes again, although they will have to be "nursing" friendly.
Stretch marks: Still in the clear, hooray! I read that stretch marks are genetic, if this is true, thanks mom and grandmas!
Belly button in or out: Outtie
Sleep: Waking up 1x a night usually to pee, then our
little rooster sweet son has been waking us up at the CRACK of dawn (between 5:00-5:40 every morning) Come on kid, you're killing me!
Best moment this week: Spending lots of one on one time with Sawyer before his little sister gets here.
Worst moment this week: Navigating Ikea with a toddler in tow (I feel like I'm in the Hunger Games when we go there. Seriously, it's an experience!)
Miss anything: Let's see...where to begin? Honestly at this point, just sitting comfortably would be a nice change.
Movement: She hasn't been as feisty. Slower movements, again I think she is running out of space to karate chop me.
Cravings: Lots of fruit (apples, grapes, oranges, passion fruit) chocolate, waffles, pretty much any breakfast food.
Queasy or sick: nope :)
Looking forward to: My family gets here in 2 days from today...AHH! And of course, meeting Miss Eleanor literally any day now!
