So a few weeks ago I was diagnosed with IUGR (intrauterine growth restriction), the reason for this is my baby has a two vessel umbilical chord and normally babies have a three vessel chord.  What that means is the baby is isn't getting big, her organs and things are fully developed but her body it self is not getting any bigger currently she weighs 3.8 lbs. Apparently I may have to early deliver. =( I don't like the sound of that, and now I don't get to have a water birth anymore. So you can bet your bottom dollar that I am going to get the epidural if I don't have to have a c-section like they are talking about.  Yesterday Tim and Stephanie and I set up the babies room, which was a lot of fun. I feel so much better now that everything is all set up. We have had our car seat in the car for a month, and we have had our hospital bags packed in there too. It seems like everything is finally coming together. I started my baby scrapbook and making birth announcements lol a little early but at least I am prepared.
