34 Weeks

Just a quick update - went today for my 34 week check-up. Got to see the baby. She had her hands up by her face. I could count her little fingers. She was not very cooperative at first during my NST, but then she started moving around and the doctor said she is doing fine. I can't believe in a little over a month, she will be here.

33 weeks

I am 33 weeks pregnant and to say I am uncomfortable is the understatement of the year. It is hard being in your 3rd trimester when it is 90+ degrees outside. I feel sorry for Jay having to put up with my whining about being overheated 24 hours a day. But on a brighter note, I had my first biophysical profile (ultrasound) and Non-Stress Test (NST) last Thursday. The baby looks good and is measuring about 10 days ahead of my due date. They think she is already about 5 pounds. I have some BIG babies! We scheduled my c-section for September 2nd at 9:00. I will be 39 weeks that day. Dr. Pegues is scheduled to deliver her - he is the same doctor who delivered Alex. We will see if I actually make it this time. Alex was born 18 days early.

The ultrasound tech checked again for me and said that yes, the baby looks like a girl to her! She is absolutely beautiful. I have been staring at this picture 1000 times a day. I think she looks like her big brother!

I have my next appointment tomorrow and then every Tuesday until I deliver. I can't wait to see her again!

House Update

Month 3 of Project Build Beynon has come to a close, and the progress is nothing short of spectacular. We have shingles on the roof, a chimney, stairs, and even some siding. The basement and garage floors have been poured, the porch has been built, and the plumber and electrician are putting in the pipes and the wiring. I am sure I am forgetting something, but here are some pictures of the progress.
