R is for...

Nathan (hands me my contact case): What is 'R' for?
Shan: It's for Right eye
Nathan: No, I think it's for "Arrrgh matey"

F is for...

Shan: I think over the last week or so my face has started looking fat
Brig: You aren't retaining water are you?
Shan: No, and my blood pressure is still low
Brig: So you are just retaining fat?

34 weeks and counting

A belly shot...this is so you can imagine the following pictures inside my rapidly growing belly.

To get the full effect, imagine this as an action shot with her kicking and wiggling like crazy. At my last ultrasound (on Friday) I told the ultrasonographer that she didn't didn't have to tell me where everything was, because I could tell: feet in my right hip, bottom wiggling around the left side of my belly, head down, with an occasional hand sweeping around.  I was right. The ultrasonographer told me she seemed feisty.  I agree.
I guess she has some hair already, too.
Current stats: weight 4 lbs 10 oz (17 percentile).  They are guessing she'll be about 6 1/2 pounds or so at birth.  I still outweigh Brig.
