And the sex of the baby is....


You guessed it, GIRL! I'm so excited that I'm blessed with one of each. I would have been happy with another boy, but since we're done after this baby, it's great that I get to experience the best of both worlds.

The ultrasound went great, she looks so good, and has grown so much since my 20 week u/s. There was no sign of cleft palate, since her jaw looked really good. Not recessed at all, like Matt's.

I went shopping online at Gymboree and Childrens Place to celebrate a healthy girl baby, and spent way too much money. But I couldn't contain myself, lol.

Finally have an u/s date!

This is what I've been waiting for. Another chance to get a gender shot of the baby! And of course, to make sure that there is no placenta previa, and to check the facial structure of the baby. I have the u/s schedulded for this comming Tuesday at 1 pm MT. I'm so excited! I can't believe that I've waited 2 months to have this u/s scheduled. At least it's less than a week away, right?

I also had my 28 wk appt yestarday. Can you believe that I have to go every 2 weeks now? Time went by so so fast. My BP was up. It was 136/78. Not fantastic at all. Last appt it was 118/38 I think. So it's gone up a bit. I'm worried that I'm going to start having BP issues like I did with Matt. That means I'll have to do bedrest. How in the heck is that going to happen with an active toddler, and a husband who works out of state? Hopefully it won't come down to that. So for now, I have to rest whenever I get a chance. Which means when Matt is sleeping, lol. I park my butt on the couch as often as possible as it is. I don't know how much more resting I can do. I'm starting to get really swollen too. Especially in my legs, feet and fingers. It's almost to the point where I can't wear my wedding rings anymore. *sigh* Oh well, it's all worth it in the end, right?
