Our new babe


We had our second appt. today and got to see our new little babe. I'm a few days over 10 weeks and the baby was very squirmy and had a nice fast heartbeat. Everything looked healthy so far and there was only ONE in there, so I'm happy ;) I tested positive for group B strep in my urine again (had it with both my previous girls), so I'm now taking a 10 day round of amoxicillin and I'll have to be on IV antibiotic during labor (again). I just can't get away from IV's. Oh well, it was so nice to see our little one moving and growing away in there. I can't wait to get to feel him/her for myself.

I'll be going back Sept 20 and I'm going to sign up for group prenatal care, which is a service the midwife group offers for women with normal pregnancies. You meet with other women with similar due dates for a couple hours each session, where you'll each get some private time with the midwife, and have some group discussion, etc. You learn how to take your own BP and weight and enter it each time. It sounds interesting. My midwife said, "It's good to have women in there like you who've done this before." Sounds like I'm an old-timer or something :) Maybe I can teach these youngins a thing or two.

o.k. so that is the cutest thing. I cannot wait for this baby! Well actually I said that with the other two also! But I think the thing is I know what I am waiting for and that makes me such a happy person. I love my little nieces so much it is hard to put into words. My nieces make me a better person, they really do!

Those pictures are just a glimpse of what is to come!

Thanks for such a sweet comment, and thanks for being such a loving involved aunt. I wish so much that I could see and be with my nieces more, but circumstances have kept me from being able to as much as I'd like. I'm glad we can share ours with you. I can't wait for you and Bradley to have one too...umm, when will that be again? ;)

I wish you could be with yours more often too. Uh and the baby thing, I will have to get back to you on that one ;) I need to look at my calendar and everything. I will have my people to call your people :)

No, I think your people are too slow. I'll just come show you how it's done :D
