Where has the year gone?

It is so hard to believe that 2008 is almost over. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and will have a great New Year. Jason and I are in the process of cleaning out closets in some kind of effort to get ready for baby. We have a LOT of stuff!!! We have redone Jason's bathroom. It looks much better. I will post some pics when it is totally finished. I should have taken some before pictures but I did not think about it.

I go back to the Dr on January 6th. I have been able to find the heartbeat with the Doppler daily so that makes me feel much better. The first trimester blahs are starting to let up. If I could just get rid of my cold/sinus infection/whatever it is I would be much better. Thanks again for all your continued prayers.

Please be sure to vote if you think we are having a boy or a girl. I think at this next appointment I should get the date that we will find out.

My appt went really well this morning. They did do another u/s and now the baby is hanging upside down. It was measuring 12w2d I think. I got a pretty good picture. I won't go back now until Jan 6th. I also got the u/s done on top of my tummy. I have never had one of those. Very neat. Also, the heartbeat was 159. We are getting very excited now. It is really starting to sink in. Please keep praying that everything continues as it should.

Today's Appt

The appointment went very good again today. We got to see our little bean again. He/She had flipped over and the head was at the opposite end as last week. I got some really good pics though. Everything is measuring right where it should be. We also got to hear the baby's heartbeat. They did not tell me how fast it was beating though. I will try to remember to ask next week when I go back. They are going to see me every week for a while. I am glad that they are keeping such a close watch on me. Please keep praying that everything continues to goes as it should. We are on God's plan!!!

Ultrasound Pictures

Sorry it has taken me so long to get these pictures up. I hope you can see them. If the image is too big (i.e. you can only see half or it) click on it to open it in a new window. I am not sure why these are so big.

Here is a picture at 8 weeks 5 days.

Here is one at 9 weeks 5 days. Look how much more the baby has grown in a week!

I have another u/s done next Thursday. I will be 10 weeks 6 days for that one.

Last Re Appointment

Today was my last appointment with the doctors in Birmingham. I am kinda sad to be leaving them but super excited that that means I am still progressing well. I am also excited about saving gas!

My u/s today was great! The baby is almost to big to see with the internal u/s. The tech made that baby mad and it moved all over the place. It was so cute! We got a great picture of the face, arms, and legs. I am going to try my best to figure out a way to scan them.

Tomorrow I go to the OB for the first time. I am glad to be getting back to him but I hope that he monitors me as well as the dr's in B'ham did.

Please continue to pray that everything progresses just as it should!

Also, some of you have wondered when my due date is, it is officially July 3rd!
