Here is baby Killeffer! Weighing in at a whopping 2lbs 2oz at 26 weeks.
So far the doctors are very pleased with how the baby is growing. A possible side effect of the chemo is having a small baby… BUT, my husband was a 10lb baby, his brother was a 11lb baby and Bekah was 8lb baby! And did you know the husband determines how big the baby will be?!?!! With that being said my petite size mamma part will do just fine with a small 7lb baby. I do not wish any negative chemo effect on my baby… But, just sayin’ I wouldn’t mind the chemo helping me out in this situation and 7lb baby is more appealing than a 9lb baby, OUCH!
A bonus for having a “high risk” pregnancy is the amount of ultrasounds you get. I think today was like #7 or #8, But I have totally lost count. It’s been amazing to watch our little baby grow from an un-recognizable ball of cells that looked like the moon on the ultrasound, into a worm with a tail. Then a cute little gummy bear, onto mini Mr potatoe head with stick size arms and legs and now a recognizable human that was pulling on its feet and sucking it’s thumb today.
Next ultrasound is in two weeks. We think the ultrasound doctor, a.k.a. Dr. Big Mouth, may have slipped on what kind of baby we were having but she did have a good recovery that left us puzzled. And even if we did know, which we don’t… We wouldn’t tell you.
We can’t wait for you all to meet Baby Killeffer in Sept.
