27 Weeks, 2 Days

Just got back from the doctor. Miss Chappell wasn't cooperating- she kept covering her face with hands and feet! When her hands and feet weren't in the way, she was blocked by the umbilical cord. We rescheduled for October 2nd. Hopefully we'll get better pictures then!
Her heart rate was 146 and she weights 2 pounds, 6 ounces. Today, her position was breech. Dr. Brown said it doesn't really matter much at this point. For those of you who don't know, breech babies have to be delivered via C-Section. I was a breech C-Section baby- I am hoping for a natural delivery, BTW.

Here are a few of the pictures from today's appointment. They are distorted from scanning them in:

Oh... and the glucose test stunk. I find out today or tomorrow if I passed or failed. Cross your fingers please!
Here are a couple pics of Reed in front of the house in Sea Island!

What do you have to do for a glucose test? What happens if you fail?

Can't wait to see the new pics though! The current ones are okay, but new ones would be good too.

Feel better. I miss you!!!

you drink a sugary drink, wait an hour, then they take your blood. it sees how well your body metabolizes sugar. depending on the results, it tells you if you have gestational diabetes. then you have to stick to a special diet....
miss you too!
