As we get closer to the big day, exciting stuff is happening. We turned 31 weeks yesterday, and we have 8 more weeks until delivery day!! We are in the final stretch and I can officially start panicking =).
We had our elective 3D ultrasound on my birthday this past Friday. We only got the 10 minute package, so we hoped this little person showed his/her face well in that time. Although they were squished against the placenta and we didn't get the clearest shots, we still got some very cute images. We think this is a very happy baby because he/she smiled throughout the whole thing (or it was the lunch I ate!!). We avoided scanning the whole crotch area, so the sex is still a surprise. I was thinking that I would be able to tell whether the face looked more boyish or girlish, but to me, it just looks like a baby!!! Here are 2 of our favorite photos...
We also had our 30 week appointment earlier in the day and everything is going perfectly still. My weight is staying very well controlled (go me!!) and I have absolutely no swelling. I'm actually still wearing my wedding ring!! With all of my past pregnancies, that thing came off at 5 months! We are measuring a week ahead, but expected seeing as we have bigger babies. Any guess on the weight yet?? Lets see... Jackson was born at 40 weeks, 10.3 pounds. Max was born at 38 weeks, 8.7 pounds. And this one will be born at 39 weeks, so I think we will have at least a 9 pounder. I will be shocked if he/she is any less then that. We go back to the doctor again next week.
Over the weekend, Cameron had the honor of taking over as the professional photographer and took my maternity photos. I really wanted to have a nice shoot with the boys. Dang, my kids are the worst when cooperating for photos. I never take the time to get really nice shots of them because they hate it!!! But, with a little bribery, we managed to get some good ones. Cameron did a great job!!!
That's all for now, but I will definitely keep the updates coming as things get closer!!
