I was measured at the doctor's office at my appointment on Friday. My belly measured the same at the 34-week mark as it did at the 32-week mark. So, I had yet ANOTHER ultrasound to determine why my belly wasn't bigger. Jeremy rushed up to the doctor to come be by my side. The doctor wanted to check and make sure the issue wasn't low weight or low amniotic fluid. I got upset and worried, but I tried to remember all the scares I had before, and how everything worked out just fine.
Apparently, I just "hid" and continue to "hide" Amelia well. She measured right where she should, and she weighed over five pounds! She's gonna be a chunky monkey! My amniotic fluid looked good, too. The doctor said maybe I could attribute genetics to not getting bigger (Mom didn't get very big with us), or maybe, just MAYBE, that FitMama Salsa and Yoga finally kicked in.
I honestly don't know what caused my belly not to grow, but I certainly had the junk scared out of me by this episode. I mean, I'm thankful that my body held up and continues to hold up to the pregnancy so well, but it was scary to think about something being wrong for those thirty minutes or so.
I'm so glad Jeremy was there to be with me. Honestly, I'm not the kind of girl that likes to constantly be petted and pampered - I like being independent, and I was raised to be so. However, as I get bigger, I really rely on him more and more. He helps me out of the car, helps me up, he runs all sorts of errands for me, etc. He has been incredibly patient and a total sweetheart.
The Farr Family enjoyed lots of fun and exciting events these past few weeks. We had three showers, Colton's birthday party, a Gwinnett Braves game, and a move-in date approaching! That's right, folks! In a little over a week, the Farr Casa should be move-in ready. We are way excited to be in our new home.
For now, however, here are some pictures of our latest adventures:
The Hulsey/Cain Family Shower
The Farr Family Shower (I like Jeremy's look in this picture - like, "what am I getting myself into with this little girl?")
Friend shower - I'm here with my fellow hostesses (and April's righteous arms - I mean, seriously - do you see her arms??! The girl gives me hope).
Colton's birthday party! He blew out the candles a few times before all of them were lit! :)
