31 weeks / Baby Shower

We had our follow up or second trial for the 3D Ultrasound this week and it actually worked out this time. I made sure not to eat an hour before this time and brought sweets and orange juice just in case. We were able to see his cute face right away and it was a really sweet moment. My sister in law was in town and we are so happy that we could share the experience of seeing our lil one with her. A little while into the session the cord kind of moved into the frame and it was hard to get good snapshots and views after that. We tried all sorts of things to get the cord moving but it didn't really disappear completely. It was obvious that it was hanging over his shoulders and I wasn't sure at the time whether this should be reason for concern but the tech didn't mention anything.

My baby shower was wonderful. Sarah's mum offered to host it at her house and Sarah, Carol and Heather W. planned the shower for me. It was a sunny happy day for me and I can't thank them enough for throwing my shower party. Blank onesies were offered for decorating purposes and the girls did a great job.

I absolutely love this dress from the Jessica Simpson Maternity Collection. I am looking forward to sporting it again soon - hopefully it works even without the belly. :)

Didn't like the 3 hour Glucose Test. I had to drink a bigger sugar drink of course and had to stay in the waiting room of the lab for 3 hours while they drew blood 4 times to measure the glucose level. This combined with the fact that I had to fast and it was early in morning made this a rather unpleasant experience but I did get through it better than I thought. I saw a lot of people coming and going during my 3 hour wait in the waiting room and met some nice people. Some people were complaining about their 15 minute wait and could not believe that I had to sit there for three hours. (That made 15 minutes sound rather easy I assume)

I could really do without this cold, but I guess my immune system is just really low like the doc said. I am trying to remember the daily vitamin at the moment and admit that I haven't been too good about taking it every single day.

We were so excited about our 3D/4D ultrasound appointment, however our little man didn't feel like it and instead was all balled up with his hands and legs in front of his face. We could see his little foot though. The technician was patient and we tried a couple of things but in the end it didn't work out. They offered us to come back in a week from now and try it again and hopefully it will work next time.

Mini weighs 3 pounds and 3 ounces now and his heartbeat was 146. He had the hiccups during the ultrasound and she confirmed with me that those rhythmic movements are indeed hiccups. I thought those were just kicks before but now I know how to distinguish it.

We will try it again next week when my sister in law is in town and hopefully he will let us take a sneak peek then. :)
