Still a sweet little girl.....

Yesterday we got to have another ultrasound! She has just made her little self at home and was reclined with her head just under my right ribs, her little bottom bouncing on my bladder, and her feet just under my left ribs. So she is technically still in a breech position. The doctor realizes that there is plenty of time for her to flip head down but lucky for us since she was in this position we will get to see her again via ultrasound in 4 weeks!!!

All of her measurements were great and her current estimated weight is just under 3lbs which is just a little above average for this point!

So now we anxiously await 4 more weeks to get a peek at that sweet face! If her position has changed the doctor is hoping she won't be so 'smooshed' and we can get a better shot of her face!

Such a sweet little profile!!

She constantly had her hands in front of her face! I think she was trying to hide from us!

Precious baby foot!


Face and hands

She is definitely still a little girl!!!

Now if Steven can just get off crutches and get her room painted we will be set!

Belly Pictures and other pregnancy ramblings

Well I think it's safe to say I officially look pregnant to the outside world.

I get more and more comments from strangers everyday. For the most part they are sweet and encouraging....unlike a co-worker that asks me AT LEAST once a week how far along I am, why am I not bigger, is my doctor concerned, etc. Seriously this lady every week at one point ask howfar along I am and some form of other question stating that I am not big enough for being that far along!!!! Now I don't expect her to remember every detail of my pregnancy but can you really not remember from week to week what I said the last week!!!!! My doctor finds this quite amazing since all my measurements have been right on track or a week ahead!

I've learned during pregnancy you are going to get all kinds of unwanted comments so after the third week of these questions I've decided to pretty much ignore her!

A week from today we have another ultrasound!!! I am so excited I am just hoping this week will fly by! I also have to take my glucose screening test and schedule my upcoming appointments for every two weeks!! I can't believe it's already time for 2 week appointments and I'm in my third trimester!

Our nursery bedding has arrived and I am SO happy with my choice! Our chair has also arrived but we haven't gone to pick it up yet. Now if Steven can just get healed and get started painting we will have our nursery put together in no time.

I was much better this time with my picture taking skills. All though I did miss a few weeks from my update below.

25 weeks....I think maybe I'd just woken up from a nap so please excuse the hair!
26 weeks. This was after a FULL day of sleeping. I had a migraine which thankfully I hadn't had since being pregnant. However, since I can't take my migraine meds they made me go to labor and delivery to be monitored until it was under control. Mind you the migraine hit hard about 2:30 am! So to say it was a long night is an understatement. Since Steven is unable to drive they wouldn't release me from the hospital so my poor mom got a phone call around 5 am to come pick us up! Of course Steven's truck was at the hospital with us so my dad had to come to so we could get his vehicle home!!! We finally got home at almost 8 am and I don't think I've ever slept so good!
ALMOST 27 weeks
I'm definitely starting to see a change from week to week now!!

Babies, Babies, Babies

This past week we found out two of our friends are expecting! I can't believe all the friends/acquaintances that I know having babies!!! We are so excited for all of them!!

Our sweet friends Caredy and Chad welcomed their precious bundle of joy to this world on December 31st!!! Meet baby Noah Patrick!!He is such a sweet little angel!

On a different note....Steven and I are slowly adjusting to his life of not being able to do hardly anything. He is back at work today! I'm trying to plan for a husband sitter so I can go to Tulsa for my sweet friend McClain's 2nd birthday party :)! You would think a short day trip isn't that big of a deal but I would hate to leave my husband in the house unable to get his own food or drink if he were to get hungry/thirsty!!!! At least he is able to help himself to the restroom!
