4-D Ultrasound

We had out 4-d u/s done today. It is amazing what technology can do. It was so neat to get to see his face. We also wanted a shot of his privates but he would not cooperate with that. He had his knees tucked up to his chest and his feet crossed. the tech said she thought he weighed about 3 pounds. Here is a link to the pics we got of him...


Here is a sneak peak of one of the pictures.

7 months

Whats been going on.....

On April 7th we went for our 7 month check up. Everything is going wonderful. I have gained about 10 lbs total, Jackson's heartbeat was good, my glucose test was negative for diabetes and blood pressure was fine. I got a lot of 3rd trimester information. We are also scheduled for Baby Bootcamp (prenatal class at the hospital) for May 16th. I am also now pre-registered at the hospital.

Beginning at 32 weeks, I will have to get weekly NST's (non-stress tests) at the hospital. He is wanting to monitor me very close at the end to make sure Jackson stays healthy and if there are any issues that they get caught early.

We go for our 4-D u/s on April 22nd. I can't wait to see him again and be able to see what he looks like. My next appointment with Dr. Daniel is on April 28th. I can't believe how far we have made it.

I have my first baby shower on May 2nd. I can't wait! The crib will hopefully come in by the first of May. His nursery looks really good so far but will look much more complete when the crib comes in.

Other than that, things seem to be moving along both a rocket speed and slow. We only have 2 and 1/2 months to go but it seems like forever away. at the same time looking back it does not seem like it has been over 7 months. I love being pregnant and being able to feel him move around inside me but at the same time I can't wait to meet him and see who he looks like and what his personality will be.
