We also got a good look at her feet. They're too cute!
We discovered that although Karis is not genetically related to her big sister, apparently she is following in her sister's footsteps. Today, her weight measured 3 pounds, 11 ounces!! She's in the 79th percentile for weight and the doctor said to expect her to weigh around 9 pounds at birth. Gracie weighed 10 pounds 5 ounces! God knows I love big newborns. I was so glad Gracie was as big as she was. Having never really been around babies before, I felt much more comfortable with having a baby that wasn't quite as small and fragile as others.
With her size in mind, and other reasons...I officially scheduled a C-Section for May 31st. (Gracie was born by c-section). My only disappointment is that my doctor is on vacation during the week of Memorial Day and won't be able to deliver Karis. She could still deliver her, if I go into labor prior to the 28th of May. I didn't labor at all with Gracie. So, I have no idea what might happen this time around. I just know, that it's getting closer and closer!
As of today, I'll be going for prenatal visits every two weeks until my 36 week point. Then, I go in every week. As my mother in law is fond of saying, "It's pretty exciting!"
