This weekend marked 25 weeks of baby Haly growth! She should be about 13 inches long, and should weigh about 1.5 pounds. This week her hair is supposed to start growing.
Last Thursday we had our 1 month post-op appointment, which included our 15th ultrasound. Halcyone had again flipped over and was head down. She seems to flip every week. This time she had her legs bent over her body, criss-crossed, with her toes on her forehead! The doctor said she is looking good and so is my cervix. I don't need to go in weekly now; I can go back to every 2 weeks for a while. I was also given permission to sit upright for an hour at a time, 3 times a day. So far I haven't pushed the sitting up, but I've done it a few times! Tom even took me out to Red Robin last Friday night for a date!
We've started the search for a car seat that will fit in our Forester without needing the front passenger seat to be pushed all the way forward. Who would have thought that a Forester is not a "family car?!" We've had a few recommendations from friends who also have Subarus, so will probably try a Graco Snugride seat to see how it fits. Hopefully it works!
Other than that, not much new has happened. I've still been reading, knitting, and doing a little hand sewing. Below is a picture Tom took last week of Halcyone and I.
