Relax, no big news! Thanks for those of you who were getting worried about where I'd been.
Saturday morning, Big Daddy decided that he'd finally take the desktop out of the nursery and store it. I'm just now getting back on-line on his beloved laptop. Big Daddy was up late last night getting everything set up so that The Muffin can watch her videos on youtube while I shower at nights. I'm just now having a couple of minutes to post an update from yesterday's doctor's appointment and ultrasound.
I can officially say that Baby E is definitely a .........girl!!! Ms. Pam took a picture of her little girl parts for verification. Baby Ellie weighs approximately 7 pounds and 3 ounces, so she'll most likely weigh in at over 9 pounds! She seems to have chubby, chubby cheeks and looks beautiful to us! Her little head is sitting directly on my bladder, which was no surprise to me! I'd post the ultrasound pictures, but I'm without a scanner.
My doctor's visit was a huge disappointment. I was reminded why I love my midwives and try to always avoid seeing an actual OB/GYN. Next week's visit will be with a different doctor in the practice. Things are very busy for the midwives and doctors so I have to see the caregiver that's available. I actually have call in to the nurse on call to verify that I'm down for a midwife assisted delivery. We hope to have a VBAC, but if a c-section is necessary, I want it to be as pleasant of an experience as possible. I truly believe that having a midwife assist is my best option for a positive outcome.
Hopefully, I'll have everything fixed on the laptop soon and I'll be able to post on a more regular basis. I'm sure Auntie Lisa will post any baby updates, if Baby Ellie decides to come a little early.
Last night was the first time I'd ever touched Big Daddy's laptop so pardon any misspellings or silly errors.
