27 weeks

Hi blog followers !  I know people do read this because you tell me =)  I mostly keep it up for my parents, of course, so they can see what's going on with us WAY over here in France.  But, I do like that others enjoy it too.

This post is dedicated to my 92 year-old Grandma Betty.  She has courageously opened a facebook account and started using a computer at 92. {She is reading this blog, too}.  Ya, she pretty much rocks.  Anyways, the reason this is dedicated to her : she made me promise to "post" some pictures of my pregnant belly, so she could watch the progress.  First of all, she used the word post - she's so hip, and second, how do you say no to that?!!!

Here you go Grandma !  I love you !
 Isn't she beautiful? (taken in August 2014 when my belly was just barely showing)

A special thank you to my camera man, my wonderful husband.

So, if Tonio is taking the pictures, whose hand is that?*  Haha.

I've gained about 10 kilograms (22 pounds), which doesn't show terribly, but I sure do know where it all is... ha !  Let's just say sitting down on a hard surface is a bit more cushioned =).

The last ultrasound went well (just 2 days ago). 
Le petit bébé Petrignani weighs about 1.3 kg (almost 3 pounds). 
We saw baby "breathing" the amniotic fluid - crazy !
We saw the brain's more complex structure.
We heard the heartbeat again - fascinating !
We saw the complexities of the 4 heart cavities with the blood flow.
We also saw a 3D image of the cute little face.  I think he or she looks like Tonio ;).
And we still haven't seen the gender (as requested), but the doc said, "All is progressing normally with the sex of the baby."

What do you think we are going to have?  A daughter or a son?  We can't wait for the surprise in January !!!

Thank you Jesus for this adventure of life.  It is an honor to carry this little bundle inside me, even though I wish I didn't have to pee so much - ha !

Love Linz
*the mysterious hand is one of baby's future uncles
