Because of this gene mutation that I have (a blood clotting disorder), I have to go see a Maternal Fetal Specialist often throughout this pregnancy. Today was a routine ultrasound (and I'll be having one a week now until he's delivered). I love going to this place because they're so nice and efficient. It took me one hour to get from work to the doctor's office, have my ultrasound, stop and get lunch and then get back to work. They're just so fabulous! Anyway, back to the appointment ... Henry is looking great! He's growing like a weed! He weighs approximately 4 lbs 11 oz now which is what Jacob weighed when he was BORN! I'm getting more and more anxious to see how big he's going to be when he's born and to see what he looks like. We are having a 3d ultrasound done in about a week and a half, so we'll get a good idea of what he's gonna look like when he's born, but still I just can't wait to hold him in my arms. It's sort of bittersweet for me, though, because this is more than likely my last pregnancy. I'm so happy to meet my baby boy, but so sad that I won't get to experience this ever again!
