Today's Doctors Appointment

So last week I went in for my 36 week appointment. The outcome was that I lost 1 lb, I was dilated to a 2, and 50% effaced. It was a very productive appointment and my doctor, Stacy Paul, told me I would be 7 to 10 days early.

So this week I was hoping that I had progressed a little more or at least stayed the same. Come to find out I had gained 1 lb, equalling a total of 8 lbs the entire pregnancy... I am dilated to a "good" 3 and am still 50% effaced.

Things are definitely looking good I thought, at least I'm not digressing and not just staying the same. Then when my doctor started telling me that she is going to be out of town the whole day Sunday things started to become more real! She was telling me that I could deliver ANY DAY NOW! WOW WOW WOW!!!

Then my mom mentioned that I am going to be 37 weeks tomorrow and Dr. Paul said, "Oh I have you down with a due date of Oct 3, not Oct 8... so you should be 38 weeks on Saturday and not 37 tomorrow!" WOW WOW WOW again!!

This whole time I've been thinking the 8th and she thinks the 3rd but now it could be ANYTIME! So hold on to your pants because we could be having a baby any day now.

Don't worry though, we will keep you updated!

Latest Ultrasound Pics of our Baby Girl - 32 Weeks

At 32 weeks we were able to go in for another ultrasound to see what our little baby girl is going to look like! We were so excited because we weren't REALLY supposed to go for an ultrasound but since my mom knows the doctor that owns the imaging center we were able to go in for some 3D pics. Thanks mom! It really pays off to know someone "in the businesses"! ha ha. We even had our favorite ultrasound tech, Tiana, do the exam. She was able to show up all of the organs and even how the baby's little lungs were working so well already. Tiana was also able to get some amazing close up pics... finally she looks like a real human baby instead of a little alien! Only a few more weeks now until we get to see her in person.

Again, since pictures take so long to upload I have included a link to our Facebook album for more pics... Click here to see entire album!

A good profile view. Also it's important that the nasal bone looks good because it could be a sign of down syndrome if it's not the right size/shape.
She has some large feet for such a little girl :)
Good spine.
What a cutie with her scrunched up nose.
Here she has her eyes open and her tongue out... technology is so amazing!
An adorable little smile!

Quite a fun time!

Doesn't it stink that it takes pictures so long to upload on to Blogger?? I think so! Because of that reason below is a link to my Facebook album capturing events of this summer.

We have definitely had a fun summer. We started off with my birthday in May. Then we went on a week long trip to Utah over Memorial weekend to visit family. In June our niece Savannah Leigh Hawley-Nino was born and of course the Rodeo was in town! At the end of June our other niece Ariana Wright was born and we were able to make a trip to Texas for her blessing in July. On the 11th of July we celebrated my brother's birthday over Skype, and on the 24th we celebrated my mom's birthday at the park! Our dog threw in some sparks while eating our lamp cord (a few times even) and in August we went to Lake Lahonton to celebrate Matt's 33rd birthday. Also, in August my great friends and my mom and sis threw me a baby shower and later in the month we celebrated my Grandpa Hawley & my Dad's birthdays.

Along the way my pregnancy has been progressing nicely and I'm finally looking like I'm pregnant at 36 weeks.

Here are a few pics to highlight!
