Bio-Physical Profile #1

Well Little Miss had her first test today! As her mom and a teacher I must say I was a little anxious to see how she would do! I gave her pep talks all week, had her rest up, and then gave her a well balanced meal about 30 minutes before the big exam (meal consisted of orange juice, teddy grahams and a brownie... not so healthy, but the sugar had her moving!). And when the results came in her teacher mommy was very pleased! Little Miss passed with flying colors! She scored an 8 out of 8! Thats her first 100!!! I am so proud of her!

She was practice breathing, moving around big and small, and her heartbeat was in the 140s (probably from the sugar high!). The tech said she did perfect as did my doctor. They are estimating her to weigh 5 1/4 pounds right now, up about a 1/4 pound from last week. If she keeps on that tracj she might be a 6 pounder! She still has chubby cheeks and was all squished up. Last time her hand was in front of her face, and the same goes for this time. Her left arm/hand was up on her forehead just like me at the end of a long day!!

I go back next Friday the 24th for our test number 2 and hopefully she will have gained a little more weight by then! I am so proud of her and glad that she has gained a little weight!! Keep thinking grow thoughts!!

Grow baby grow! You need to come in at over 6 pounds, and I know you can do it. It's ok to be a tiny little squab, but I'd feel a whole lot better if you were at least 6 pounds (plus your clothes would fit better)! You need to be a good little girl and listen to your favorite aunt!!!

Love you skister! Glad she performed well for you. We can all breathe a little easier now! (Yes I was holding my breath yesterday...I will admit that now)
