Doctor's Visit July 27th, 2011

Hello! I went in for a regular OB visit today and things still seem to be looking good! My belly measures a little under where it should but it's not a concern because they allow you to measure 3-4cm under or over where your target is. So, that's good! She did have me freaked out for a second that he wasn't growing, but he has! His heart sounded amazing, too! Nice and healthy. I asked her about my numb shoulder business I have been having and she said it is just a nerve being irritated or pinched because of the way he hangs out in there. He is still head down and has been for awhile. He must like it that way! I go back in two weeks for an ultrasound to check on his growth and the O again. I can't wait to see him! After that appointment, I actually start going weekly! We are getting so close that it's scary! He will be here before we know it! In the beginning of August I will have the exact time for the c section. It will most likely still be at 9:00 am on September 19th. As soon as I know, I will let everyone know because I know people are trying to take off work and such. THANK YOU to everyone for your continuous prayers and support! We need it and are so thankful for it! Love to you all!!

Next appt: August 10th at 2:15. I will update again after that! :)

Pediatrician Visit on July 20th, 2011

Hello all! I just wanted to send a quick update. Joe and I met with Dr. Terrill who will be Frankie's pediatrician. She is wonderful! Very bubbly, nice and knowledgeable! She said once he is here she can check him out the day after he's born and keep up with him and do things as necessary. The doctor's at Children's Hospital will be the ones who are really working with him until he is out of the hospital and even once he's out, but we need a pediatrician also. We are happy to have met her and look forward to her helping us with our little man! My next doctor's appointment is on July 27th. I will update again then! Love to you all!

Doctor's Visit July 13th, 2011

Things went well again today! Frankie is growing very well and the O still looks stable. There is no stress around the O, thank God! He currently weighs roughly 3lbs 2 oz! During the ultrasound today I even got to see that he now has hair on his head and watched him open and close his eyes! Adorable! My belly measures correctly at 29 weeks and my weight has maintained! I go back to the doctor in two weeks for a regular OB visit. My OB leaves for Africa tomorrow night for 2 weeks, so Frankie needs to make sure he doesn't pull any funny business while she is gone! My c-section is supposed to be on Sept. 19th at 9:00 am, but that isn't a definite time yet. My doctor tried to schedule it with Barnes and apparently 2 months ahead is too soon. Craziness, we both thought but oh well. In August, we'll know for sure! Things are going very well, all things considered! Keep up those prayers! We appreciate them so much! Love you to all!
Cute face and little hands up by his face!
