week twenty five
i have the baby's hospital diaper bag packed and just a couple more items for me to purchase for myself, and my hospital bag will be ready to go too. call me crazy but it's just one less thing i have to worry about. i also sewed my burp cloths too, they turned out so cute! check instagram if you haven't yet. i tend to post a lot of my baby progress there.
i also have an updated "life binder" filled with all of the husband's deployment information, updated information and addresses, you name it. i'd rather be prepared with any and all information, then have to go searching around for it in the up-coming months.
one of my birthday presents (for baby of course) was a pair of bellybudz (http://www.bellybuds.com). my husband saw these on a Shark Tank episode and remembered them when we found out we were expecting. he recorded his voice reading the first part of the Lone Survivor book and sent it to me so that baby can recognize and listen to daddy's voice. the first time i put it on before bed, baby went a little crazy moving around. i think it was just startled because it was hearing such loud noises that it hadn't been before. i'm trying to make it a weekly thing before bedtime for baby.
last but not least, the day after my birthday i had another ultrasound appointment. apparently during our 20 week one, baby was measuring a little small, so they wanted to check up on it's progress. well they came back with the results and again baby is still measuring in the 9th percentile. which means they want me to see a fetal specialist to get a more intensive look to see if baby is just genetically smaller than normal or if my uterus has a growth restricting condition or something else. let's just hope for a small baby. that's all i want. a small. healthy. baby.
