I just wanted to remind everyone that you can find me over at wordpress now. Here's the new address:

I hope to see you there!

p.s. there will be baby photos there soon! I'm being induced on 10/10! Hopefully that will entice you all to follow along :)

It's official....

blogger sucks and I've moved over to WordPress! It won't let me link it but here's the new place.
I'm so happy with how our appt went yesterday. First and foremost, the biophysical profile of Sweet Lou came back showing that there is absolutely nothing wrong with him. If you remember we had to do the u/s because at our last appt his heart rate kept dropping out which led the dr to schedule the u/s to see why. It turns out there is nothing wrong and he just apparently didn't have time for us that day. We heard his heartbeat yesterday and it was loud, strong, and steady, absolute music to our ears. During the u/s we were told that we had a big boy and that he was measuring in the 78% which led my wife to worry that maybe I had GD. Well we got the test results back yesterday and I passed with flying colors. I am measuring a week ahead and have only gained 13 pounds so far and I'll be at 30 weeks this Sunday. Overall the doc is happy with my progress and told me that I'm handling the pregnancy well. My only real complaint is indigestion which a few and pril.osec take care of for me. People keep saying that I don't look pregnant and I even got called sir yesterday but I am starting to feel it. I feel like I'm huge but I guess others don't see it. I'm also not wearing maternity shirts which I guess just makes me look like a fat guy but I'm ok with that. Those shirts are hideous and I'm glad I'm still wearing my own shirts. They're getting shorter though so I may have to start looking for options soon. Here's a picture from last week so you be the judge. Pregnant woman or fat man?

I don't know about you but blogger is starting to really piss me off! The last couple of weeks I couldn't post comments on some of your pages and today it won't let me upload pictures. I'm thinking about jumping ship to wordpress. For all you wp people is it worth it? I have an account so I can comment on your blogs but that's my extent of wp knowledge. Was it easy to transfer over? Any tips would be appreciated because blogger is sure making it hard to blog!

All is good here with me and Sweet Lou. I have an appt on Thursday so I'll post after that. For now I'm just pissed at blogger!

Sweet Lou is A-OK!

What a relief, Sweet Lou is fine! Apparently, he is big and active and doesn't have time to sit around and let us listen to his heart rate. He is measuring a week ahead and weighs 2lbs 12oz and is in the 78% percentile for his size! I sure hope this doesn't mean I have gestational diabetes. I passed the first glucose test back at 13 weeks and took another one this past weekend so we are awaiting those results. He was moving and shaking and still has boy parts which is good since we have come to love the thought of a little boy. Plus, we'd have us one butch little girl if she had called it wrong the first time. Our boy has a closet full of the cutest little clothes. Thank you everyone for reassuring me that he was fine. He is fine and we couldn't be happier. Plus, we love the new pics we got of our Sweet Lou. He is big, active, and bald according to the tech and we couldn't be more in love. I posted my favorite pic below so hopefully you guys can spot him. It's a front view of his face in the upper right corner. His nose looks funny cause it's pressed against me. He is head down, butt up, and his legs are on my left side which explains why I feel him there most. We think he's just absolutely gorgeous and cannot wait to meet him. We have another appt Aug 4th so hopefully the Dr will confirm what we already think...that he's perfect!

Without further adieu, I give you Sweet Lou!

Tomorrow is our u/s and it can't get here fast enough. I have been trying not to stress but I can't imagine anything being wrong with our little boy who we already love so much. He's been moving around like normal which helps to calm our nerves but any time I don't feel him move I start to worry. Our appt is at 8:20 tomorrow morning and that can't get here soon enough. Hopefully, all will be well and this will just be another opportunity to see our boy and get some more pictures. I'm hoping like all of you said that the doctor is just erring on the side of caution. I'll update you as soon as I can. Thanks for all the support.

trying not to freak out...

We went to the doctor yesterday to check on Sweet Lou and it seems that something may be wrong. The Dr listened to his heart rate and told us that she doesn't like how it keeps decelerating and she wants to find out why that is. When we went to the ER on 7/2 and he was doing it then too but the nurse just told us he was being active and we didn't think anything else about it. The Dr said she doesn't think it's anything to worry about but ordered a biophysical ultrasound just to be sure. She told us to keep track of his movements and to call if he hasn't moved like he normally does. Our u/s is scheduled for Tuesday at 8:20am. I don't know how in the world we will survive that long worrying about our Sweet Lou. He's moving around a lot so that makes us feel better. We keep telling ourselves that he's fine but you just never know. My sister had a similar scare when they couldn't find my niece's heartbeat at all and then the u/s showed she was fine. I just wish we didn't have to wait until Tuesday for answers. Has anyone else experienced this? I am freaked out beyond words.
