With it being summer here, I feel disconnected from the idea that it is indeed a NEW YEAR.
I have made no resolutions and have not filed anything away with the label "2009."
I pretty much have just had my eyes on March 21 (due date). That is when the NEW YEAR will begin for me. The NEW LIFE. My new life; her new life -- our new life as a family. Scariness.
We went to the doctor for another checkup today, and he said she is now facing with her head down, which is a good position to be in. We got another ultrasound. They are ultrasound happy in this country; I have had too many to count. OK, let me actually count -- I have had nine. And mine is a "normal" pregnancy! They do one at every Dr.'s visit, and I "interviewed" several doctors at the beginning, so each one wanted to give me one. They love it. We got a DVD recording of the last one.
In today's ultrasound we could see that her eyes were closed and she was moving her jaw like a cow chewing cud. I guess she grinds her teeth (gums) like me. Her nose looked really squishy and it looked like she had big lips. I really hope she's not funky looking when she comes out. I am very curious to see what she really looks like.
They also do 3-D ultrasounds here. I didn't think I would do it, but now I think it could be kind of fun to compare it with when she comes out. What do you think, should I do it?
