Week 28 (and 4 days)!

I just got back from my checkup at the specialist and things could not have gone better! Baby Boy is still measuring a little bit big (around 1 week ahead!) and weighs 2 pounds 15 ounces now! I can not believe that by tomorrow I will have a 3 pound baby! (ok, sorry, enough exclamations points!) My cervix kicked butt this week and was measuring at 3.53 cm which is waaaay in the normal range. My amniotic fluid index was measuring in the 13's which is great too. The most exciting part of the visit (other than seeing his sweet little face...) was that the sonogram tech totally caught him "breathing". I asked if she saw anything when I knew she was looking at his diaphragm and she said no, but not to worry. A few seconds later she saw him do it! She said that babies don't do it all the time so we were really fortunate today!! On a worse note, my weight went up a bunch :(. Ah well, I spend the better part of my time dieting when I'm not pregnant so I'm not going to worry about it right now. Also, I realized that for all these dang weeks I've been giving myself the wrong amount of progesterone. Once again, nothing I can do about it now. I just need to make sure that I'm doing it right for the next 6 weeks.

 My awesome doctor said that I can come back next week for a checkup (instead of waiting the standard 2 weeks) since my Momma is coming into town to baby-sit me for a while. My Momma has never seen an actual ultrasound being done even with 5 grandkids. This should be really exciting for both of us!

And now for the cutest pictures of the day!

Sweet little face looking right at us!

Perfect profile!

At one point when the specialist was doing the ultrasound he put his sweet little hand up and totally waved to us. It was beyond cute!! How am I ever going to make it though these last weeks when I can already hardly wait to meet this little guy!
