Up Early

I haven't blogged for a while. I usually get home and have very little energy for anything other than taking a bath and going to bed.

Yesterday we had a doctor's appointment, so we took the day off. I had one of these pregnancy moments where my brain cells are not working properly. I knew all week that our appointment was at 8, but when I got up yesterday, I somehow got it into my head that it was at 9. Then, when I went to check my calendar at 8:25, I realized that we were 25 minutes late. We jumped in the car and got down there in 10 minutes and they still saw us. After looking at our 12 week ultrasound, the doctor was trying to figure out the due date since the baby is measuring so big. He decided not to change the due date, but warned me that the baby might come a little early. We also got to hear the heartbeat, which is my favorite thing. Then, they took more blood to finish the quad screen testing. The first results came back, along with the results of our 12 week ultrasound and everything looks good so far. With this last round of tests, they'll be able to tell us if we have the markers for any birth defects. I opted to go the route of the quad screen rather than getting an amniocentesis because these tests are not invasive. My favorite thing is that they recommend these tests because I am of advanced maternal age. I don't feel that old, but anyone over 35 is considered AMA.

The other crazy thing that happened yesterday is that it snowed all day. It was too warm for a lot of it to stick, but it was coming down. We are supposed to get more snow today and tomorrow. I can't believe it is snowing here in March. I was used to this in Colorado, but having this happen in Washington is really strange.

Robb and Reba did a great job updating their blog about our Easter Sunday, so I won't repeat their efforts. Link to their blog is on the sidebar.

I'm meeting up with my mom today for pedicures. Even though we may never get to wear sandals, I want me feet to be ready in case it happens. I'm also going to continue my quest for maternity clothing. I ordered a bunch online and now I have pants and skirts, but not quite enough tops. Hope you are all going to have a great Saturday as well!

Hey you!

Wish I could've joined you guys for pedicures the other day...though it would've been a heck of a drive.

How're you feeling? And are you going to find out if you're having a boy or a girl? And when will that be?

I have itchy knitting needles, but have a hard time with the standard gender neutral yellow or green.

Inquiring minds want to know (really, Emily wants to know too!).

Love and miss you lots!
