Tall Skinny Girl

According to the high-risk doctor we went to today, Carrie is developing properly, she just doesn't weigh as much as average. We won't have a roly-poly baby for sure. She weighs 5 lbs 8 oz which is fabulous weight gain from last week. Their recommendations to my "normal" OB doc is to keep a close eye on Carrie (monitoring once or twice a week) and probably inducing me sometime during my 38th week. I'll write more later when my normal doctor makes more decisions.

We got our first 3D picture of her today, so that was exciting for us. Justin says she looks just like me. I think she looks a little annoyed, probably bcause we kept poking at her and wiggling to try to get a clear view. :) The picture looks a little funny because she kind of has her face pressed up against me (so the smushy looking thing on the right side is uterus, not part of her face.) I'm excited to get to see her in person soon :)

She looks precious! Im sure everything is going to be fine and Im sure as soon as she gets out she is going to gain a ton of weight in no time!

She is so cute!!! Oh my gosh! 3D ultrasounds are the best, aren't they? I agree with Justin, she looks a lot like you... I'm so glad she's okay!

Oh, and if they're inducing you in two weeks, aim for the 22nd. It's an excellent day to be born on! Probably the best day in all of January, if you want my humble opinion. (It's my birthday, and my sister-in-law's... and my second cousin actually. At any rate, we all think it's pretty swell.)

I'm so glad that things are going good with you and Carrie. We are excited to have her join our family.
I would vote for the 14th because that is an awesome day in January and it is My birthday.

The 3D ultrasounds are so neat! I am sure that you are getting so excited to hold her and see her beautiful face for real! I am so excited for you. I am glad that all is well with her health. I will keep praying for both of you. :)
