Bela measured about 5 lbs. 7 ounces and around the 6th percentile at my dr. appointment yesterday.. darn. Back down below the 10th. Everything else is still looking normal, but because she's still so little they don't want me to go longer than a week and a half, so Bela has been scheduled to arrive the 5th of March. Unless I go into labor before or they decide to take me in before (which could still happen), that's the big day! And it is a big day...in my family at least. There are 4 birthdays on that day, my dad and the triplets. I may not have her until the 6th, and that just happens to be my mother in laws birthday! So either way, she'll be stealing away someone's thunder. I hope nobody minds...:)
I've been obsessively following the story of little Annabelle who was born Jan. 29th with HLHS in South Carolina. She is still in the hospital in recovery. THey have a 3 yr old little boy, so it's been like looking at a glimpse of our near future. They published an article about her journey in the newspaper...it's very touching. Annabelle's story
It's amazing how many people out there are going through this or similar things. It gives us strength.
