Yesterday we were able to get another ultrasound! (Just an awesome perk of having your husband work at a doctors' office!) Baby is getting SO BIG!! It was crazy how much she has grown since our last ultrasound. Instead of being able to see her whole body at one time, we were only able to see parts! But oh, were they cute little parts! She's still a girl (sigh of relief, we have bought EVERYTHING pink!) My mom said that if she didn't know, she would think that I was having a boy by the way I'm carrying her. She got me all freaked out and let's just say I was relieved to see girl parts still. :)
Her arms are getting so cute and chubby as well as her little cheeks. She was sucking her thumb (which I think is just adorable!!!) and even got the hiccups during the ultrasound. She gets the hiccups at least three times a day, poor thing! She's a very active baby...she's always kicking and latley I can feel her little hands and fingers wiggling around. It's become a nightly ritual for us to lie in bed and just watch my stomach dance around. I could do it for hours, and it has easily become my favorite part of the day, as well as Matt's.
Today at my doctor's appointment my doctor felt around on my belly and said that baby's head is already down and rearing to go! He also said that he'd induce me before my due date if I was ready, YAY!! I'm almost 35 weeks now, only 5 left if I go full term! I am so dang excited that I can hardly stand it.
Last weekend we were able to go home and while we were there I had two showers. Holy moly were people generous!! I got SO MUCH stuff for baby! She is one spoiled little thing. Her nursery is so cute! We got her crib and dresser a couple weeks ago, and we just love them. Sometimes I'll just go sit on the chair in her room and take it all in. It's surreal that I'm going to have an actual BABY in that room in about a month! I can't wait to rub that baby lotion on her cute little head. :)

Well, as much as I tried, I have failed at keeping my blog updated. I thought I would be better now that I'm pregnant, but it turns out I'm not! I just don't have time to blog, and when baby gets here, I'm sure I'll be worse! Anyway, here are some pictures from the past 8 weeks. Baby is growing and changing everyday. It is so fun to watch my belly dance around. I could seriously sit and watch it all day long. Pregancy is such an amazing thing, I am constantly amazed that the whole process actually works, and in the end, I will have an actual baby! It's super exciting and super intimidating at the same time. I can't wait for her to get here!
We ordered her crib and dresser yesterday, and I'm so excited for it to get here!! I want to get her nursery all set up and ready to go. Here's a link to what crib we got: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11363879
...and here's the dresser:
We're pretty excited about it!!! Babies R Us is having a deal right now where if you take in any used baby item you can get 25% off of anything! So we took full advantage of that. :)
Only 8 weeks left to go! It still feels like it's never going to get here though. I feel like I've been pregnant FOREVER! PATIENCE!!!!! :)
