More Baby Pics!

Alex & I had a 3D ultrasound last Saturday. It was incredible!!! We were able to see our baby's face in such detail. She's beautiful!

We have a CD with 53 (!) pictures, so here are a few. You have to see these... (click on the pictures to see them larger, hit the back arrow to return to our blog)

AMAZING!!! She looks a lot like my baby pictures, but her profile in some of the shots (especially the 2nd one above) she looks EXACTLY like Alex.

Belly Pictures

I know, I forgot to add pictures of my ever-expanding belly. Sorry! Better late than never. These were taken over a 3-week period. I'm bigger now, I'm sure, because they are a few weeks old already!

Ignore my yucky hair & make-up...these were taken after getting home from work. I promise I look a lot cuter BEFORE I go to work!

Oh yeah! How do you like the new layout??? I thought since we were having a GIRL, we should have more of a girly layout!

Another appointment, all's well!

I had my 23-week appointment this morning. On top of the usual 1-hour earlier wake-up time to make our appointment before work, I only had about 4 hours of sleep the night before. We had some bad storms and our electricity went out at 2:59 am and didn't come back on until 5:30. That meant no a/c...and it's hot here in the STL. So, I didn't get a lot of sleep.

Despite all the sleep challenges, the appointment went well. I'm doing fine -- experiencing normal pregnancy stuff: discomfort, slight swelling of the feet, etc. AND Baby Girl is doing great! All the results from our big ultrasound in May were completely normal. We got to hear the heartbeat again. Baby P was so active that she kept kicking where the doctor placed the Doppler on my belly! :) It sounded like "woosh woosh woosh THUMP!" Our baby sure is entertaining!!!

We have our next appointment July 2nd. I'll be 27 weeks and entering the 3rd (and LAST!) trimester...I can't believe it!

Oh yeah, I guess I should talk about how weird it is that complete strangers ask about my pregnancy! When am I due, how am I feeling...but the WORST thing I hear is how MISERABLE I'm going to be this summer!!! Gee, thanks. I kind of figured it would suck, but could I get a little encouragement??? :) I am already not looking forward to Summer in St. Louis, let alone going through it big & pregnant. Did I mention it's supposed to be 92+ degrees tomorrow? Good times. Oh well, I'm trying to stay positive and remain COOL! I'm drinking so much water, I'm going to float away.

I have belly pictures, but they're on the other computer so I'll add them this weekend!
