Doctor Visit

We’re lucky to have a wonderful doctor:? Dr. Omar (clicky)

Today was one of many check-ups and it went awesome. Everything is tracking well.

Here is the lobby of the office, lots of pregnant women typically in this room. It’s like a baby factory here.0901omaroffice11

In the exam room:0901omaroffice2

And here Dr Omar taking measurements and other assorted things, she let us know everything is good!0901omaroffice3

“Big” furniture is in …but plenty left to do.

Still plenty to do in the baby’s room, but at this point we have all the big furniture in place.

We will not do a theme until after the baby is here and we know boy or girl …right now it is a very loose “Jungle Theme”

Starting out:  A very nice Pottery Barn Crib that Grandma Rose bought. A matching changing table and finally a gliding/rocker chair.  The chair’s colors are not the best, but the deal couldn’t be beat so we’re going to have the cushions re-done once we have a theme.

When will the baby get here

So, medical science and math have calculated the baby’s arrival on Feb 26 (yes 2009 🙂 )

When you do think the baby will arrive Feel free to comment on when you believe the baby will arrive –and we can all come back to this post, read the comments and see who was the closest!

By the way –> Mommy-Kathryn says:? February 14th ? ; Daddy-John says February 28th

Ultrasound pictures

We debated, but finally decided to do the new technology of:  3-D ultrasound images.

It is kinda of a bizarre technology as it takes and image and data from a traditional ultrasound and computer-generates 3-D images so that you can see facial definitions etc.

The window to do this is pretty narrow.  Too early and the baby is not developed enough.  To the contrary, past about 31weeks, things start getting pretty cramped in there -squished babies don’t look that good we’re told.   So, the ideal window is around 28 to 30 weeks it seems.  We figured one time chance so we did it!

It is kinda fun and we discovered when you look at other people’s results, you’re not too impressed. But when it’s YOUR baby, it is really cool.  Funny how that works.

Make up your own mind, here are a few of the pics:

The first one shows the baby in 3-d ..as does the 2nd picture, Notice the feet and toes that baby likes to suck on.  The third picture is a traditional ultrasound.

Baby Shower / Gift Registration

The baby is registered at two different places. Target and Babies-R-Us.

We thought we had registered for everything we needed, but we keep getting coached by friends who have pointed out things we’re missing.  🙂

Anyway, the links to the items that the baby is registered for are below:
