I am ballooning


Did I mention that my belly has literally grown before my eyes? 36 weeks here... I am twice the size I was a few weeks ago! Baby Howell is finally trying to catch up and put on some length and girth. She definitely has Pete's bony legs and arms - she is quite a "pokey" baby! We had an appointment yesterday with our Drs here in L-town and all is perfect - she is average for size, her heart rate was around 135, I am perfectly healthy and 100%. Besides this placenta stuff, this might be the most boring and uneventful pregnancy of all time (which is perfect by me).

We go to Billings next Tuesday to see Dr. Damron, the Perinatal Specialist (high risk pregnancy/baby specialist). As strange as it sounds, he will examine my placenta with his super high tech equipment and see if it has moved enough and then use his very expert opinion to decide if it is safe enough to go with a natural deliver OR if we we need to plan a cesarean for the last week of April!

Either way - this little gal is getting here safely and at just the right time!
