More importantly, we got a great report. Today was my halfway checkup! Halfway, that's unreal to me! The placenta is in the right spot, plenty of amniotic fluid, all limbs were there and we saw the four chambers of the heart. To say it was amazing is very understated. I gained three pounds (that's all so far). Mom met us there, too. We got a DVD of the ultrasound and watched it again tonight. The sweetest part was when she was sucking her thumb and was playing with the umbellical cord! She moved around a lot and finally showed us her goods. The ultrasound tech just said it looked like an 'equals' sign = . She also put her little feet (mama called them BIG feet) up and pressed them against my belly for a nice picture! Once she did a big kick and I felt it. I've been feeling her a lot lately. Little bubble feelings and baby thumpings.
- Everleigh, Everly (probably our fav) Everly Parker or Parker Everly??
- Ella Parker (but becoming too common--but I LOVE it as a double name)
- Ellie Parker
- Parker Ellis (love this E name too)
- Audrey Parker (thanks Putting on the Ritz, Audrey Hepburn, for reminding me how cute Audrey is)
- Alejandro (just kidding...stupid song has been stuck in my head all day)
Now the fun part begins! We'll order some furniture and find some fabric and sew her up a cute lil' nursery! Need to pull out the sewing maching after the Fourth. Troy's mom can smock, so I'm hoping she'll make me a ton of precious outfits!
I'll add a few more pics tomorrow, but they're on T's phone. He's conked out after taking some meds. He also had to go to the doctor today for his back--he did something to it and could barely get around Saturday and Sunday. Hope his xrays turn out okay next week.
Okay, my stomach does look huge here, but when I'm standing, it's just poking a little!
