We had our 27/28 week appointment this Wednesday. Besides getting to drink the lovely orange crush flavored glucose drink, we were also given the chance to see our little girl again. Yes… we did double check to make sure she’s still a girl… call us paranoid! The doctors want to have 2 extra ultrasounds to check her growth, since Noah had problems with that. It doesn’t look like she’s having any problems though! She weighs an estimated 2 lb 14 oz right now and was measuring at 28w 1d – 3 days larger than her due date (nothing significant, but larger none the less). She was laying head down with her legs folded over in such a way that I’m sure she could have sucked her toes if she wanted too! ha! She seemed to sleep through most of the ultrasound, but did wake up towards the end and gave a few good punches!! That’s my girl!! =)
Now on to Noah… he turns 17 months old today!! Where has the time gone and who told him he’s allowed to grow up? He is becoming so independent and strong willed. He knows what he wants to do and he tries to get us to let him do it!! He still isn’t talking… the only word that he really says and uses correctly (most of the time at least) is “no”. He knows what everything is and when asked will point to it, but he refuses to “use his words” and talk. Our pediatrician didn’t seem too concerned at the 15 month appointment, but did mention that she likes to see children speaking some words by 18 months… we have 1 month to get him to start talking!! I know that he can… I just think he doesn’t want to talk yet!
