Short update

I had my 34 week ob apt today. We all went! I was hoping we'd get to and thankfully the Culligan man came about 45 minutes before we had to go so Chad and the boys got to go with me. Jackson was thrilled to see his sister on the screen for the first time and they  both loved hearing her heartbeat! My ob is really great! She's very gentle and explains everything to the boys as she does it. We got to see her face a lot. She had her right hand up in front of her face so she couldn't get the most clear shot of her, but my ob was able to move around enough to get some great views, one was straight on. She has what appears to be the cutest little nose, looks like Jackson's the most! Her face is so round and perfect!! Her other hand was down along side of her, in front of her heart which caused a little problem when they wanted to do the nonstress test and listen to that heart...lol she was having none of it. Because the arm was over it they just could not get a reading of her heart beat, but during the u/s we could see it without a problem and hear it! Everything looks great and she's flipped again so she's once again head down. Of course she could flip once again, but ultimately it doesn't matter since she'll be coming out via c-section! I'm going to try to call tomorrow to our clinic to get the phone numbers for the hospitals to set up for a tour and registration, and ultimately the date for my c-section! They measured for contractions since they couldn't hear the heartbeat, I had none so that was all good. Oh and she's still measuring well HUGE! LOL

Oh we have family pictures tonight! We won't get them back for about 3 weeks, so those will probably be in right before the baby comes. Once she's here we'll of course have another family picture taken as well! But the photographer that we're using is via a company we really like and this is the first time they've been to our Army post, so I'm jumping on the chance and hey the first picture they take you just pay $12.00 for and you don't have to buy anymore, although well we will I'm sure! They'll be in Sepia tone which I absolutely LOVE! I still have to figure out what we're wearing. I WANT us all in white shirts, but I don't have a button up white shirt that fits my ever expanding belly right now and the boys have both outgrown theirs as well. So we'll have to see what I can come up with!

I'm off to the laundry room! I have the last of it down there! Wahoo! 3 loads are in the dryer and 4in the washer (they should all be finished) and I'll be done, for a couple days! LOL I need to do bedding so I'll probably do that tomorrow! It's seriously a never ending dreaded chore. Man I need a maid!
