26 weeks

i havent really been posting but ive been super busy. so many things to do and think about, it almost makes my head spin. i’ve been trying to deal with my last semester of school which means our senior design project, work, planning two baby showers, planning graduation, trying to find a house, dealing with being pregnant, just to name a few things. i still need to look into Lamaze (sp?) classes, setting up the hospital tour, figuring out when we are going toΒ  need daycare, i need to do my gestational glucose screening this week, i have a test today and i need to go grocery shopping. le sigh.

you know those moments where you realize all the things you have to do, and then you just take a nap? yeah well i wish i could just take a nap right now lol…

soo in other news, d told me we were going to breakfast on saturday and then he surprised me with an appointment to the 3D/4D ultrasound place πŸ˜€ i may have cried a little. may be. we did the one where you get to keep the CD with pics and DVD with the session. they also let you view your session online for a year and hear the audio from the session (the DVD has a lullaby instead of what we were actually saying). it was sooooo nice. he hasn’t been able to come to the past few ultrasounds ive had so it was nice for him to see what she looks like now.[ its crazy how far technology has come!] she was being a little camera shy and kept her hands up near her face for a lot of it but we saw her beautiful little face, and the lady gave me chocolate to try and perk her up a bit, and when i was eating she was opening and closing her mouth too!!! it was the cutest thing ever. she also started doing what looked like some crunches and then put her feet up near her face. soon she’ll be too big to move that much so it was cute to see how active she is now. theres about 80 something pics on the CD, some aren’t very clear cause her face is very near the placenta which causes things to be blurry or hard to make out but we love all of them anyway. later that day we watched what to expect when youre expecting which i thought was cute πŸ™‚
