There's a Real Person In There

We had our half way target ultrasound yesterday. Dalyn is perfectly healthy. He was doing rolls and somersaults. What a wiggler! James and I are both so grateful and amazed that we have been blessed with 5 healthy babies.

He did measure 2 weeks ahead, though. The tech said that because I am so certain of my last period that they weren't going to change my due date. Sept. 5th sound a lot better than Sept. 17th, but I am sticking with the 17th so that I don't get my hopes up. It could be that he is just a big guy. They are going to keep a close eye on him and make sure that he isn't growing too fast. I kept telling everyone that I felt bigger and I could tell that he was huge, but no one believed me! =)

Here is the cute 3D ultrasound of our little man. If I have learned anything in my young life it is to never to get your hopes up...I don't mean that in a bad way, just a realistic one. I started to feel better for about two weeks and now I am sick again. Not as sick as before, but still yucky and soooooooo tired. No, I mean really tired. I can not keep my eyes open. So I am trying to keep my expectations low, and again, I don't mean that in a bad way...just in a realistic, survive the day, get up and do it all again the next day.

I'm so glad to hear how healthy you two are, but sad that you're feeling so yucky. I'd really like to help as much as I can while we're still here. Please let me know!
