Recalculated Due Date: November 3rd.
I can't even tell you how excited I am to paint my belly for Halloween! I have always wanted to do this. I need to think of something with lightening bolts so my stretchmarks will blend in better.
We had an ultrasound today. I love these days! I never had the chance to see my own kids on u/s this early in my pregnancies. It is SO NEAT to watch this baby grow from a little "dot" to now - A peanut. I think that is what I will nickname this baby - Lil Peanut. Today was an awesome day. Today was the first time I saw Lil Peanut move on the ultrasound. I saw it's arms moving all around and it's whole body squirming. It seemed to react when I laughed (see video below). I fell in love. It was a beautiful sight. Every time I see this baby on the u/s I can't help but get excited about the future and the moment when A & M hold their for the first time. Brings tears to my eyes at the thought.
Doctor's orders: Decrease meds - Yay!! I would have liked to hear "you may stop meds completely", but it looks like I have a few more weeks yet. Oh, and sorry Eric (hubby), doctor's orders....i'm still on "pelvic rest".
My new insurance cards should arrive this week. Doesn't seem like a big deal to most, but this means that I finally get to see my new OB--I'm so excited!! I've heard nothing but great things about this OB and the medical group. I look forward to a great experience with them.
And now i'll leave you with the best part....a video of the baby! I dare you not to smile while watching this awesomeness.
If you listen closely, you can hear my 3 year old daughter in the background telling the doctor,
"That baby has two daddies."
I love it.
