Ultrasound pics

Ok, here are the pics from the ultrasound - remember if you click on the image, it will get a little bigger.
The first 2 are of the baby's face - with a little fist down by his/her chin. The pics still aren't very clear, but considering how much this baby moves - they are pretty good! The last pic is the one that shows the baby already has some hair! The fine little white lines you see are the hair!

Well, we had our prenatal appt. today. Everything is looking good - I had a brief crying spell when I heard the heartbeat. :) It's a sound that just never gets old to me - I could listen to our baby's heartbeat all day long!!

We did get another ultrasound to check the placenta. It has moved, but only slightly. But it's 1.5 cm away from the cervix and that is enough for a vaginal delivery so, we are VERY happy!! We will get another ultrasound in 4 more weeks to see if it has moved further. We got a cute picture of the baby's face and got to see a big foot near my ribs (the Meatloaf is head down already!!). We also got to see that the baby already has some hair!! Personally, I am very excited about that!! The tech estimated that Meatloaf weighs around 3.1lbs.

Well, I guess that is all for now - I will post the ultrasound pics tomorrow, hopefully! Thanks for all of the positive thoughts and prayers about the placenta! It worked!! :)

The room!!

We are excited to finally start getting the baby's room ready!! Linds did an AMAZING job on the basement so, we moved the family room furniture (the light stuff anyway!) back into that room and moved the guest room furniture downstairs to the small room.

Amazingly, Linds and I agreed on a crib!! It wasn't one of the ones we were originally looking at, but we both loved it and it was on sale!! A huge THANK YOU to Jeff and Chrissie (Linds' dad and step-mom) for getting us the crib!! Thanks to our friend Becky too for helping us pick it up and move it in!

On another note, I passed my gestational diabetes test and my iron is normal (I was anemic with Jonah) so, that's good news. I'm not sure where I'm getting my iron from because I'm struggling to eat meat. We didn't get the placenta checked at the last visit, but will at the next appt. on Monday. We are all confident that it has moved up, but would welcome any positive thoughts, energy and prayer that anyone wants to send our way!

Also, our first baby shower is this weekend so, we are VERY excited about that!! I will be seeing some friends that I haven't seen in a long time so, that makes it even better!!

Padding the Nest

Cindy admitted that she has started to feel the nesting urge! She really wanted to get things ready for the baby's room. Unfortunately, I'm not quite finished with the basement yet. (I know, I know...its been forever in the making, but I'm almost done! Then we can move the basement furniture back to its rightful place and move the guest bedroom furniture as well to make room for nursery furniture.) So, instead of preparing the room, she had to settle for crocheting a baby blanket. I've been teasing her about nesting for a while. One of my co-workers is also pregnant, due in May, and at the beginning of her nesting phase she baked a made-from-scratch blackberry pie and brought it in to work to share. It was amazing! I keep asking Cindy if she feels like baking anything, but she keeps insisting she doesn't... :)
