Ultrasounds are becoming so amazing. While looking at this strip I said "Wait, is that baby LOOKING at me?" And it is. It had one eye open you and you can see the iris and pupil. I didn't even know they opened their eyes in there. It also has very long eyelashes and tons of hair and is very chubby. (Unfortunately my sister needs a small baby for a best chance at natural home delivery and this baby is trying to be a breech giant. Please pray for her as she'll be heartbroken if what I suspect is going to happen does: I think it is likely the baby is too large to engage in her tiny pelvis and that it also has no room to turn around. there's a little time yet for it to turn and she's having treatments to do this, but it just has so little space. Right now it is jammed from her lungs to her bladder and there is just no more space, yet it is growing very rapidly in these last few weeks.) I have a bad feeling that there will be a c-section in the next 2-3 weeks as letting the baby get enormous (it's on track for 8-10 lbs) won't help anything.
Anyway, kind words and the first time I'm called Aunt Jen for REAL made my day. More later.
