Baby update

Today was our last appointment with the specialist. We are so thrilled! When we were there last the concerns were:
My fluids levels were low so I was supposed to be drinking a gallon of water per day and they couldn't find one of the lil mans heart ventricles.
Today my fluid levers are sky high (can I just say I told you so?) and they still couldn’t get the view of the heart they were looking for. The Dr. said he feels fine with what they could see of the blood flow and and the rest of the heart & they don't see anything that gives them cause for concern at this point. So basically, even though they can't get the shots they need the shots they did get show no signs of anything worth worrying over.
The baby is also now weighing in at 4lbs 1ounce.That is over a pound of growth in the last two plus weeks! (YIKES and thank the heavens for c-sections!) He already has a little over 1 centimeter of hair on his head...I can't get the visual of a toddler sized baby with orange hair sticking every which way like clown hair out of my mind! Seriously... Any bets as to weather this one comes out with orange hair like Rieken, yellow like Kelten, or Dark brown like Kippi ?... And while we are speculating I say he is going to be the smartest and strongest of all of our kids to date and he will come out walking and speaking fluent French and English to boot. Why not?
I was supposed to go in and get my sugars tested 4 weeks ago but have I done it? Nope. I really don't see the point. I feel fairly confident I know what it's going to say. I guess I'm just trying to spare my finger tips the three times daily pricking as long as I possibly can. I have to do it tomorrow though because, I have an appt. with my regular doctor on Wednesday and I don't want him to think I'm a slacker. I may post later this week but, if I'm not back until the weekend no worries. So, that's all for now...

I say he is going to have blond hair and I bet he'll come talking right out of the womb!

I don't blame you for dragging your feet on the test. That is no fun!
