Wordy Wednesday: A Baby and Baby's Mama Update...

I had intentions of doing a pregnancy update almost 4 weeks ago, but after my appointment last month I decided to hold off until today so that I could show you this:



Isn't he/she awesome?!? 

During my last appointment Dr. Brown asked me how I was feeling and my response to him was what it has been everyone who has asked me that question during this pregnancy: "Good.  Big, but good." He then confirmed what we (anyone who has laid eyes on me in the last few months) all have known all along. I was, in fact, measuring big. 

Soooo, he ordered an ultrasound at my next appointment (today!) and the beautiful babe you're seeing above is a 3D peak from just this morning.  Seriously, how cool is that?!?  The "feather-y" looking thing to the right of the baby's head is my placenta, the cord is kind of going across his/her mouth, and it's perfect little hands are up under the chin. I could stare at it all day.  Oh wait.  I have been.

The results of the ultrasound were good.  While I am still measuring big, baby Quatro is perfect and measuring exactly where he/she should be.  The U/S showed my due date as only 3 days sooner than my original, so there's no need to change it officially.  That's a huge sigh of relief for me.  I have no intentions of doing any wedding crashing on my little brother's big day (October 9th) this time around. Baby's heart rate was 150 and he/she is approximately 2 lbs. 3 oz. And for anyone wondering...no, I did not sneak a peek (much to my husbands dismay!) and we still do not know the sex.  Aren't surprises so fun?!?

So, that's the update on Quatro. Wonderful. Perfect. And amazing.

Because so many of you have asked, here's a little update on me at 28 weeks and 1 day.

I'm doing great! I still get tired easily and often times try to do too much (cleaning/organizing the basement and lifting rubbermaid containers = a bad idea). I could eat Honey Bunches of Oats all day and drink Sparkling Lemonade until I began to float, but I don't. My weight gain up until this point has been pretty much what it was with the other kiddos.  I still don't have a "feeling" whether or not Quatro is a boy or girl, but if I had to guess, I'd say boy. We have our names pretty much narrowed down and I'm loving them.  This is HUGE progress.  I honestly thought, up until a week or so ago, that this baby would forever remain nameless. 





Guess that's it.  Thank you all for your prayers, concerns, and words of encouragement...they mean the world to us!

thanks for the update! So excited for you guys! Love the last shots of your belly....you should do one of all 4 of your pregnancies and frame them together in one frame. You look awesome and you always look so beautiful when you are pregnant {not that you aren't beautiful with that flat tight stomach of yours!}. Can't wait to meet the final little Starr.
