We have Pirates and a baby update!

The kids are attending a really fun preschool and the theme on Wednesday was pirates. Miss Piggy has especially gotten into her role as a pirate. Kermit has enjoyed it as well, but his enthusiasm doesn't quite show here. Master Chief got them all cute this morning while I was resting and took video of them. First, go pause the ipod that's playing by scrolling to the bottom of my blog. Then come take a listen to these two most adorable pirates.

And of course it's baby update time! I must admit I was quite worried about this appt and I came with my guns loaded ready to fight. My blood pressures are going up, I've had a little more swelling, but most concerning was this rotten headache I've been dealing with for the past 2 days. I was really worried about pre-eclampsia and was afraid the dr was going to send me to the hospital. I called my mom and got the okay from her that she'd be willing to fly out and take care of the kids and I while Master Chief worked this week, and I was going to sell my plan to the dr telling her that I promised to be on strict bedrest if she'd just let me cook my sweet baby one more week.

But things are probably okay. I'm dealing with a migraine we think, which while it's no fun, it's so much better than pre-eclampsia! And I've only gained 1lb, so nothing to really worry about there. Everything looked great, but just to be safe we did draw labs to make sure everything is okay.

We also had an ultrasound today. We were amazed at how much bigger she is. She's getting fat! She's now weighing in at 5lbs 3oz, which is fantastic! We took the kids with us hoping they'd enjoy seeing their little sister, but she's so big and my tummy is so small that she was really hard to see! She kept her head down as low as she could and wouldn't turn it, so we couldn't even see her profile. We had to do some stretching around to even measure her belly. We did get a glimpse of her hand, it was chubby looking! She's still growing hair!!!! I made sure to pack hair bows/headbands for the hospital just for her! And we were able to see a foot, but again only for a quick second! She was also practicing her breathing. You could see her belly expand and deflate, demonstrating her cool skills!

So things are going to be okay. As long as labs come back normal, we don't go back for a visit until next Thursday!!! I'm so excited to be making it this far. What a blessing this has been for our family. Thank you again for all of your thoughts and prayers.
