We've got a 2 pounder!

We had a sono today to check on our little sweetie. I thought the big 18 week sono was going to be the last one so we were suprised and excited when Dr B mentioned the 28 week sono! My mom and dad took off the afternoon to come out to Dallas to see their little granddaughter! It was a much quicker sono that the others. It was over before we knew it! I'm glad they give you a dvd of it, so I can watch it 10 times when we get home!

Her heartrate was 138 bpm. She was measuring right on track and weighs 2 lbs 12 oz! The last time we saw her she only weighed 8 oz. We got a couple cute profile pics, and confirmed for a 3rd time that she really is a girl! Good thing b/c her first of many bow headbands arrived in the mail yesterday! Overall, everything looked great, and we are so thankful for that.

I am feeling pretty good! I have felt a few braxton-hicks contractions lately. They didn't hurt at all, and honestly I wouldn't have even known they were there if I hadn't felt my stomach. I maybe feel a few a day. Just to make sure I asked Dr. R today and he said it's ok since my cervix is measuring 3.0 cm. Just keep hydrated, especially on the nights I work!

Tomorrow I have my appointment with Dr B. Now starts the appointments every 2 weeks. I can't believe we are already at that point! Following is my 27 week picture from last week...

And yes, the Christmas decorations are down now! When I was taking them down I was thinking to myself that next year I will have an 8 month old to experience Christmas with!!! I can't wait!!!!
