Update about nothing

I guess it’s time for an update.

And yes, I’m still pregnant. 40 weeks and 6 days pregnant incase you were counting. I have no idea when I’m going to go into labor. I’ve been having on and off contractions since about 36 weeks. I was sure I would deliver around 38 weeks. Now I feel like I’m 3 weeks overdue, not just a few days.

We are monitoring her by checking the amniotic fluid every few days. My doctor is fine with me going to 42 weeks before trying anything. I’m hoping to deliver on my own before that. The real issue comes if she decides to poop before I deliver her. We won’t know if that happens until she is here. If she does it would get in her lungs. Praying nothing like that happens.

Anyway, still impatiently waiting to get this craziness started. Thanks for the prayers and messages from everyone. I plan on updating things when things get more interesting.

And here is a very pregnant time at the park.

Pink or Blue?

Today we had the much anticipated Ultrasound. With my first two the ultrasound meant finding out if they were a boy or girl. Now they are about finding out if the baby is healthy. Crazy how views change in a couple years. The tech first scanned in on the brain and from what I could see it looked perfect. Kids with Spina Bifida have a “lemon” or “banana” shaped brain. So this was a great sign of a healthy baby.

After a few more scans and a little twisting and turning trying to get the baby to move around. We saw a healthy brain and a healthy spine! What a blessing!

And of course we got the “money shot”

In November we will be having our first baby girl! Now to get to sewing the cutest little clothes for her.

And I thought this picture was just too cute. She was resting her little arm on her leg.
