Chubby Cheeks

Went to the midwife today and had to take the glucose test again. They will also run my iron levels to make sure the supplements I am taking are working. Guess what? I finally gained weight. Four pounds which puts me at 3 lbs. for the total pregnancy so far. I ate lots of extra snacks these past two weeks and even splurged with an Al*mond Joy bar yesterday. I also got copies of my records to take to Chicago with me on Fri.
I met Tom downstairs for the ultrasound. They measured all of Peanut's parts and declared him right on track. He is 3lbs. 9 oz.! He looked so big on the screen. His head is down by my pelvis and he is laying on his right side. I bet it is comfortable curled against me. I might be biased but he has the cutest face. Chubby cheeks and a little button nose. I fell in love with him all over again.

Here see for yourself:
