PRE-HOLIDAY STRESS: Growth Sonogram and Thyroid issues...

On Tuesday, January 23rd we had a growth sonogram to confirm that Emma's growth hadn't been stunted by my under active thyroid. Needless to say, they called that morning of the sonogram and gave me a scare that my thyroid levels were low and I needed to see my PCP (ASAP) to change dosages. After having the sonogram, they were able to tell us that she is perfectly healthy!! She is ahead of schedule 5lbs 11ozs and 19.28 inches long (long and skinny). We truly may not make it our due date and if we do we will be having a Big Girl!! I spoke to both doctors and all of this could have been avoided if they would have just communicated with each other rather then getting me involved. This was great news so we were able to relax and have a wonderful Christmas!!

Next doctors apt is Friday, January 2nd.

Have a safe and Happy New Year!!

32 week picture and 33 week doc apt...


32 weeks...

We had Childcare/CPR class this past weekend and it went well but was pretty long (Friday 6-9pm and Saturday 10am-5pm). We also got some stuff done around the house and I can only hope that this weekend is as productive.

We have 33 week doc apt on Friday morning so I hope it is as routine as the last. I will post again on Friday with any updates.

Happy Belated Birthday to Cowboy...


Happy Halloween!! I was a pumpkin for halloween...

Cowboys 10th Birthday was last Monday, November 10th and since I am a terrible mother, I forgot!! I did make it up to him yesterday with, "Doggie Day Camp" and grooming. These are some pictures of him when I picked him up, he was so... excited!! He was so tired from playing all day that he didn't even want to get up to eat dinner.

After getting him home, I showed him Emma's room and the first thing he did was went and picked out the toys he liked in her toy box. I hope they both can share!!

3D Sonogram

video

She is already hard headed... she wouldn't move her hands away from her face the entire session. We did get a couple of her face and hands. This is the most amazing thing! She is a mix of my nose and Clint's lips, we think!!

Her feet....

The Weekend & 28 1/2 week doc apt

Saturday, November 15th - Big Family Shower... and I say BIG because there was over 50 people there and I was overwhelmed with a ton of fabulous gifts!! It was nice to see friends and family that I haven't seen in a while. The best was Clint's face when he came to pick everything up... he was shocked! We got everything home and Emma's room was full to the door but finally yesterday, we went through everything and put it in stacks of clothes, bath stuff, diapers, electronics, etc. It made it much easier to see what duplicates we had so we could return them.
(I will post pictures as soon as mom can get them up loaded.)

Yeah... COWBOYS WON!!!

Monday, November 17th - 28 1/2 Doctors Apt. (29 weeks on Thursday) Everything is still going well: weight good, urine good, blood pressure good, thyroid good, and her heart rate was still around 140 (which is good). Clint didn't get to go today because of a important work meeting but it was a pretty routine apt. anyways. Our apts. start every two weeks, now. Crazy that this part of journey is coming to a close but a new one will begin as soon as we meet out little Emma for the first time. We are so... excited! Tomorrow at 4pm is the 3D Sonogram and I can hardly wait!! I will post some pictures and the video as soon as I figure out how to do so.

Also, we have our first childbirth class on Friday (6-10pm) night and continued all day Saturday (10am-6pm). It will a long day but informative and helpful to our unanswered questions. I just hope Clint survives without football on Saturday...
