28 week appointment

We have reached the final trimester!

Friday was our 28 week appointment. Everything is going well, Peyton's has a strong heartbeat. We talked about registering at the hospital, taking classes and the next appointments. After taking my glucose test, we went for our 4d ultrasound to see Peyton's face.

She was facing my back so all we could see was her back. We waited for a little while for her to turn around and tried to move her but had no luck. She was very happy in the spot she was! The tech got as many pictures as she could but said we should come back in 2 weeks to try again. At least we got to see her and still confirmed that she is indeed a girl :)
Here is what we were able to see:

Foot..while we were waiting for her to move around
She was behind the cord (on the right).. Apparently tight quarters

So we are going to try again May 4th. This past weekend we worked on more of the nursery but still have more to go.

We also traded in Cade's Versa for a Hyundai Tucson crossover. It's in between the Jeep and Versa.  We are loving it, though I've taken it over :)

27 weeks

This past month we have been busy! We've been doing the usual-work, school and preparing for baby but also trying to enjoy the couple time we have left.
My last check up went well, Peyton's heartbeat is strong and I'm feeling well (though my sleep has not gotten better).

So far this past month:
-Pregnancy brain: I have to rely on Cade for things now which is pretty scary because he relies on me!
-Its getting hotter and hotter (or at least I'm feeling this)
-Pre-registered at the hospital
-Signed up for classes
-Peyton has kept my belly busy (she wakes up at 2am and 4:30am and moves around thus I don't sleep)
-Turned in maternity leave paperwork
-Now I'm craving cinnamon rolls (I still love my rice krispie treats)
-Celebrated my 25th birthday
-Cade got a new job :)

This past weekend we went to College Station. I've really been "home sick" and it was such a beautiful day, plus we needed to get some A&M stuff for Peyton.

                We've decided to have a family picture under the ring every year :)

Next week will be our 28 week appointment: lab work, glucose test but unfortunately no ultrasound. We are now at every 2 week appointments. Third trimester and only 3 short months till our little one is here.
