We are Growing-NO FOOLING!

Today's ultrasound was great! The doc was finally able to see all of what he really wanted to see. Little one was finally face up and not just showing us her spine the whole time. We saw all four chambers of the heart which was the main reason they brought us back again so soon. If you look closely (or click on the photo to make it bigger) you can see her resting her hand on her ample belly. You can actually count all five fingers! SO CUTE! Doc says we have one more ultrasound at 32 weeks and we're done. The next one is just for fun to check her size and make sure she's on target for delivery. All of the high risk monitoring is done and she's passed it all with flying colors! As far as we can tell we have a very healthy, nice size baby girl! I'm 24 weeks 3 days according to them and measuring 25 even, so we're still measuring a tad ahead which is fine! I'm hoping that gets me my first pick C-section date! She also is up from 1lb on March 4 to 1lb 9oz today. Of course that is give or take a bit as they can't tell exactly by the ultrasound. I'm not going to freak out about her size as much as I did with Lindsay. My OB was convinced I had a nine pound baby in there and she was 7# 8 oz at birth at 39 weeks so who really knows? Besides, she's coming out the easy way so why should I worry??? Other than all of her gorgeous wardrobe fitting her this summer, right??
HA!HA!
We're getting very excited. I can't believe how fast things are moving now. We have Lindsay's big girl bedding now and I'm ready to pick a paint color and get that room going. The nursery is staying the same so it's just a matter of moving Lindsay out and restocking it with all the wee stuff. We know what furniture we're putting in Lindsay's room so we're just waiting to order it until we're closer to ready to have it delivered.
All in all I feel like things will come together. Mike works best under pressure and he's starting to feel it...trust me. Heh,heh.
I'm working on some ideas for birth announcements and we're an email away from scheduling our Baptism date so we're getting there. Anything I can get done now with that sort of thing is keeping me busy while we're in Mike's busy season...PROM TIME.
Oh and just for those of you who are going and keeping track...we're on the OFFICIAL COUNT DOWN to BON JOVI...April 30th people!!! Lindsay is not happy that her sister gets to go instead of her. Those are the breaks kid! :)

Yeah I can't wait to see pictures of Lindsay's new room and the nursery. I think there is a 3-5 lb variance on their weight estimations...so they could say it was a 10lb baby and it could really be 5lbs?!?! I don't even know why they try!
