So I don't have a picture, but our scanner is... uh... I didn't scan it ok?
James/Therese is 31 weeks and 4.6 pounds... so adding an average of 1/2 a pound a week, we're looking at an over 8 pounder. Woop Woop! Think that makes me scared? Heck no! It means that the child will get to 11-ish pounds SOONER and will sleep better sooner too... I pray. I wasn't told a heart rate this time, and it has varied between the 140s and 150's, so who knows. I was thinking it was a girl, then today while watching John Paul play with his cousin Madeline, something felt like this wouldn't be the way things were just yet. Plus, I thought John Paul was a boy the ENTIRE pregnancy. Ergo, it's probably a boy. James David. 2 crazy little boys jumping off the roof together (that's what David said). Somehow that's not so comforting. But we pray that God has many more in store for us... like 12 jumping off the roof together!
Either way we are doing well, growing fast... I have already gained 3o pounds, so I guess ice cream twice a day isn't a good decision for too much longer. Thank you Denise Austin for your pregnancy work out video and that spastic red head who assists you.
10 more weeks... to be with just one little munchkin, to guess what we're having, to dream that it will sleep and eat beautifully, to sleep 9 and 10 hours a night (in a row), to not nurse a baby (though it will have only been a 6 month break since John Paul), and my nesting phase is in FULL THROTTLE... I've swept three times today. I'll leave you with that.
Oh, and here's John Paul at a few days old. I can't wait to do this again!
