I graduated.....

.....well from Dr. Wright's (the maternal-fetal specialists) care. I had my last appt. with him today. Now that I have his clearance hopefully the Naval OB will clear me so that I can stop going to the MD every 2 weeks. Gosh you would think that it is time for me to deliver already.
A few snippets from the visit....
Dr. Wright said "great, beautiful heart" I know not super exciting but that was what we were there to look at on Isaac.
The ultrasound tech was quite a bit more colorful. The first question that I asked her when we started was "is it still a boy?" Quit laughing at me!! I had to try.....her response, "this right here is his winky & this is his hand right beside it." Of course being that I am a little bit of smart alack my next response was "oh it starts early doesn't it?" LOL. Ok so she did all of her measurements and such to find out that he is about 1 pound and 13 ounces right now. He is between the 60th and 70th percentile for in utero growth. (I had no idea that they could do this so I was amazed!) Yep he is still a big boy.
The rest of our conversation was quite colorful so read with caution. She said near the end... "big brain, big lips, big hands, big feet, big winky.....someone is going to be proud." I about choked on my own saliva. So he is taking after the Beach side with the big, pouty lips and after daddy with the big hands and feet.......and well we'll just leave the rest of it alone!

I am so thankful that he is healthy. We do have a prayer request for this arena though..... Ben has to go to California with his new squadron from September 1 -October 1. Chances are that they will let him come home but what I am hoping and praying for is that Isaac will hold on until his daddy gets here for delivery. I would like for Ben to be able to see one of his children come into this world. If you could just keep that in mind when you are praying we would greatly appreciate it!
Let's see onto emails, comments, etc. the turtle is still alive and well. He hangs out under the storage shed pretty much nonstop...guess there is a plethora of bugs and shade under there! We do get him out about twice a week for Kendall to see but no more than that as I am sure he would be traumatized!
Momo is doing great. Thanks to everyone asking about him. He was even outside chasing the water from the hose like his old self!
Kendall is also back to her old self and sassy! I have to get her a followup appointment this week sometime.
I am also doing better...just fat and pregnant!
Thanks to ya'll for all your kind words, emails, and prayers!

Glad to hear that you are doing well enough that you don't need to see the specialist any more. Glad to hear that Isaac is growing and doing well.

Praying that Ben will be able to make it to see the little guy born.

Thanks guys :-) I keep listening to my favorite praise and worship song where the lyrics go.... "I am not skilled to understand, what God has willed what God has planned." I know that it will turn out how it is meant to!
