4D ultrasound pictures

On Monday we had our 4D ultrasound. It was really neat. She definitely looks like David. At least she has his nose and upper lip. She kept her hands moving up by her mouth and was trying to suck her hand and her thumb. Didn't look like she had it quite figured out yet. These are a little blurry because they are pics of the u/s pics. We also got a 15 min DVD which shows her moving around. We got to take people along to watch, so we brought my Mom, his Mom, and both of my sisters. He also double confirmed that she is definitely a girl!! These are just some of the pics.
See, David's nose and upper lip!!
Little smile with her finger up by her nose. (The nose looks cut off because she was pressed up against the uterine wall.)

Hand by her mouth.
Hand under her chin. He also said her cheeks are getting a little chubby already too.

More Baby gear!

Here are a couple of things we got in the last couple of days. I ordered the crib bedding last week and it arrived yesterday. I haven't actually oped it up yet but from what I can see we really like it! We are going to paint the room a light shade of green called Honeydew. The others are a couple outfits I picked up at Target because they were just to cute! Now I need to refrain from buying much of anything else!!
Quilt, bumper, sheet, diaper stacker, valance, dust ruffle.

Mobile and curtains.
Ok, I bought this to get her first pictures taken in. I couldn't resist it, it's so adorable!!

So cute!!

Baby gear

Well, things are slowly coming together. A few weeks ago Marianne, Philip and the boys came in for a week and they brought in the crib, mattress, and changing table with them. And she even put them together for us!! So these are just pics of them put up in the nursery. Nothing has been done up there yet. We did order the bedding and should be here Tuesday, then we can pick the paint color. I will get pics of the bedding once it comes. We did register at Target and Wal-mart last Sat. also. So, here are some pics of the baby gear we have.
Changing table and crib.
Just picked up the baskets for the changing table. I love them!!
Close up.
Chest of drawers (with some of the things we got for Christmas ontop)
Diaper bag we bought ourselves. (I am picky about stuff like this, so we bought our own.) =)
Close up of top design.
The bottom is brown. It's not showing well in this pic.
The outfit we bought now that we know it's a girl. Can't really see here, but they are little hearts. It's hard to hold back from buying alot. Everything is so cute. She is gonna be so spoiled by everyone as it is!! :)
A swing we bought back when we first found out we were pregnant off my sister's friend. It was a great deal!! It's a Little Lamb Swing.

It's a.........

Also one good thing about last night's visit to the ER I had to get an ultrasound. I teased the girl about taking a sneak peak to see what gender the baby was. She told us she couldn't because she could lose her job. BUT, at one point she said "I just accidentally happened to see this, accidentally, and uh, well, it's a GIRL!!" She showed us 4 or 5 pics and there is no question, it's a GIRL!! Yippee!! She told us if we told anyone in the ER she would hunt us down because she could get into alot of trouble. But it was very nice of her to do that for us!!

So, Kaylynn Renee it is!! ;)

Hydronephrosis, oh my.

Yesterday I ended up having pretty bad pain on the right side of my back. As the day progressed, the worse it felt. I took Tylenol as soon as I got off work and got to my car. When I got home I tried to lay down, it wasn't helping. I called Jenn, David's sister that's a nurse to get her opinion, she said go to the ER because it sounded like kidney infection. So, I called the on call nurse and they kinda thought the same thing so she told me to go to the ER also. So, we did. We went to Geisinger ER, we went back fairly quickly. They did a urine test, blood work then took me for an ultrasound of my kidneys. It seemed like it took forever! But it ended up being this hydronephrosis. Fluid around my kidney and it's slightly enlarged all due to being pregnant. They sent me on my way with percoset. So I took one right away.

Well, we ate then went to bed. Well, needless to say all the percoset did was make me sick and ended up getting sick all night, bad!! The pain was so bad I never slept a wink. No matter what I did or how I tried, it hurt! So I called off work and called my OB Doc and told them what's going on so I'm waiting for them to call me back. I took more Tylenol and it seems to be helping right now. Praying this doesn't happen again! :(

Old Wives Tales

Does anyone have any "old wives tales" for eating/drinking anything to get your baby to move around so you can determine gender? Well, Mt. Dew didn't work at 20 weeks. (hee, hee! It was moving everything else but it wasn't uncrossing those legs!) Just trying to do everything we can do so it'll show us boy or girl when we go March 21st for a 4d ultrasound!

Very long awaited update!! Preggo Pics!!

Side profile.
21 weeks here.

First of all, for those of you that may not know by now, I am pregnant! After going through some things through the fertility clinic, we finally got pregnant. We found out at the end of October 2010. As of right now I am 22 weeks. So far I can't complain to much about pregnancy. I have my days, but I really haven't been sick. Thankfully, besides dry heaving anyway. I'm not really nauseous either. Which is good seeing as though we are really busy at work and have been working overtime!

In the last 2 weeks or so I have really started feeling the baby move. Now it's moving all the time in there! At 20 weeks we went to have an ultrasound, and we were going to find out the gender. Well, the baby had other plans. After 1 hour and 45 min's. It would not uncross it's legs! The tech tried, and she even brought in 2 different Doctor's to try, no such luck. So, we had to give up. My Doctor said everything looked good from the u/s, so unless something happens I don't get another u/s. Well, i was able to get ahold of a place locally that do 4d ultrasounds!! We have an appointment for March 21 at 6:30pm. We are allowed to bring 5 people along! We get a 15 min DVD, 10 color pics and 10-15 black and white pics! So hoping the baby will cooperate, plus since it's 4d it should be easier to see!!

Not much else to report other than that. I'm going to try to keep up with this better!!
