So our 4D sonogram and appointment afterwards was very disappointing. The baby had his/her face too close to the placenta to get any really good pics and the woman doing the sonogram was not the best at her job. I really prefer the girl who did our sonogram two weeks ago, but she was not there. So we spent $175 for some really blurry and mostly unrecognizable photos and a video. Not worth it, in my opinion. The little black and white 3D shot we got a few weeks ago was better than this:
Although, that has to be the cutest little yawn in utero, ever! I am so excited to meet our little acorn! He/She kept putting his/her hands over his/her face the entire time we were there, so there are very few clear shots without a hand in the way.
I didn't get to see my doctor at this last appointment and I have only seen her maybe twice. We're getting down to the wire and it's starting to tick me off that she's NEVER there. For our next appointment (next week), I am determined to stay all day if I have to so we can go over my birth plan. I self-diagnosed this breakout that's all over my chest, back, and shoulders, as pruritic foliculitis. I told the nurse practitioner and she said that's not what it is. I think I just need to ask the doctor...
Other than the acne-like breakout, I'm doing great! My feet are more apt to swell lately if I am on them for too long, but as long as I can get off of them, it doesn't bother me too badly. Still peeing every 20 minutes or so and still unable to sleep comfortably for very long.
My friend Rebecca is due in June and I would greatly appreciate it if y'all would please pray for her and her baby boy to have a safe and smooth delivery!
Til next time!

Only 11 weeks left!
I'm feeling great and everything is going really well! I had my glucose test two weeks ago and I do not have gestational diabetes. I also had my thyroid levels checked again and they're well under the limit during pregnancy.
My placenta has moved up and is no longer near my cervix! YAY!
At our last appointment, the baby was head down, but I'm
certain he/she has turned since then! This little acrobat has been flipping
like crazy lately!
I have an abundance of fluid, which is great. Just makes me feel like
a water balloon. lol.
My blood pressure has been perfect every appointment and it was 100/55 two
weeks ago on the 10th.
Other than heartburn, peeing every thirty minutes or so (which has never
slacked off for the past 20 weeks or so, especially at night!), and horrible
acne-like rashes on my chest and back, I haven't had any new symptoms.
Well, my feet do swell more often now, especially if I'm on them
too long or I don't drink enough water during the day.
All the baby boy and girl clothes from newborn to 3 months have been washed,
folded and hung up! We're pretty much prepared for our little bundle of joy as
far as clothing him/her! Baby shower is on June 2nd and then
we'll have a better idea of what we still need to get.
Here's our little "acorn"!
Our next appointment is this Friday. I will update on how we're both doing then!
