3D Ultrasound Pics

Hey! Here are some pics from our 3D ultrasound we had done yesterday...
I also had my regular diagnostic ultrasound done and everything still looks good...she's still a big baby though...this weeks estimate was between 6 and 6.5lbs...

You can see in the pictures that she has very chubby cheeks! :) She had been very active and kicking all morning, but of course, when it was time for the ultrasound...she apparently was sound asleep, so she rarely changed facial expressions (and wouldn't move her hand out from in front of her face!)

Next week when I go in for my regular appt, the tech said if she was more active, she'd record a few more 3-d pics for me...

Let it snow, Let it snow...or Ice, Ice, Baby?

They are predicting a couple of inches of snow for us tonight...hopefully it won't turn into ice. Snow is is not...since moving up here two years ago, I've been through both...the first year, this is what I woke up to outside of my house...

Last year, this was the much more pleasant scene outside...

We'll just have to wait and see what's in store for this year!

In other news, I start weekly ultrasound or 'biophysical profile' monitoring this week to make sure everything is progressing well with Laura...Since the last time I posted anything about it, I've had to start taking Insulin for the Gestational Diabetes. Luckily, I've just been able to take a pill twice a day (no shots-for now) Well, other than monitoring sugar levels 4 times a day...

Since I've now become 'insulin-dependent' I get monitored a lot more closely. Each week they will give me a 'score' for the baby. Ideally, she should score an 8 each time. Mainly, I think they are checking her for weight gain and lung development. I have my first profile appt tomorrow (assuming the roads are drivable) so I should know more about how it will work soon.

We've also made some progress on the baby's room...I'll try to take some pictures to post later in the week.

Have a great day! :)

Christmas In Review

Hey! I apologize for being late in updating the site...we've been pretty busy the past few weeks with traveling and getting baby stuff ready.

Enjoy the video with pics from Christmas 2007...I'll update with more info on what's going on in our lives soon (hopefully even today!)

I hope you all had a blessed Christmas and a Christ-filled New Year!
