And week 29 is just about over as well. Crazy, I tell you.
Today was one of the most fascinating days of my life thus far.
Internet, meet Maya ...
It was simply amazing. As soon as her face came into view, Todd started to cry, and that made me lose it. Not that I wasn't already choking up on my own!
She was extremely active. We double checked to make sure that she was indeed a she. She is. Whew. She was swallowing a lot, and her tummy was full. We even got to see her eating her hand, and opening her eyes.
In a word? Breathtaking.
I thought my heart was going to burst right out of my chest.
Todds reaction to the whole thing was just what I needed, as we have been somewhat off with each other as of late.
She has my chin. And what looks like Todds mouth....
I am so excited to meet her, face to face. I would recommend the 4D ultrasound to anyone. It was about $260 when it was all said and done. Best $260 we ever spent!
My Mom was there, as well as Dad and Janet, and Heather came too.
I am hoping to squeeze in another one around 35 weeks. It was awesome. I can totally understand why stupid ass Tom Cruise got an ultrasound machine. Really. I could sit there and watch her all day long.

I never thought I would be posting photos like these. It still seems surreal. Pay no never mind to the messy hair ( I had fallen asleep on the couch earlier ), and my complexion is a mess. I didn't have it in me to photoshop the hell out of these to make myself into something I am not. This is me, around midnight, after a nap, and still very tired, in my 80s bathroom in all my glory....be gentle. LOL
27 weeks 5 days along....
And there is nothing sexier than the soon-to-be Daddy painting his little girls bedroom....
We have our 3D/4D ultrasound on May 31st. I am so excited. I cannot wait. Aaaand, the very next day, I have another ultrasound at my Docs. LOL. I didn't remember that my Docs appointment was June 1st. So we get to see her twice in two days! How cool is that??

The kicks are happening more often, and they are much MUCH more forceful now. She makes me yelp out loud sometimes! One of the cats was laying across me the other night, and when she kicked me, it pissed off the cat. It was hilarious. She just looked at me like "What the HELL, lady?"
Watching my belly jump is neat. Odd, but neat.
My emotions are back on a rollercoaster as well. We have the year anniversary of my Dads (and Marks) death coming up. As well as the fact that my husband is facing more back surgery. Not to mention the whole baby thing and OHMYGOD will we be good parents???
Then it occured to me that I AM GOING TO HAVE TO WIPE SOMEONE ELSES ASS!! I will be responsible for whether or not my daughter has an itchy, stinky butt!!!
Diapers are one thing. I can hang with the diaper thing. So why does it seem so vastly different when the person can actually use the toilet?? You would think it would be LESS gross because you don't really have the whole smoosh-factor going on.
So, I am about to head into week 27. This amazes me. I remember back to when I was barely 7 weeks pregnant, hoping every day that I would just make it to 12 weeks. Then, 12 weeks came and went and and I couldn't wait for 20 weeks so I could have the ultrasound where they really check to make sure all is well.
As I sit here on the cusp of my third trimester, feeling her kicks and movements inside of me, I am just hoping these last three months go by a quickly as the first six months have gone.
Because I am really anxious to meet my little girl....

Here is one of the valances..
Here is the hamper..
And the front of the crib..
and the side...
I LOVE IT!!
(No ultrasound today Chas!)
I am measuring at 27 weeks ( I will be 26 tomorrow ), and my blood pressure was great at 108/69, and he said everything is good. I have an ultrasound scheduled for June 1st. What a great way to start off what will surely be a shitty month.
June..I wish I could skip over it. For those that don't know, my Dad died on June 23rd, while I was at my brother in laws funeral. Mark died on the 20th. My birthday is the 5th, and this year on the 5th will mark 9 years (!!!) since losing my grandpop to cancer. Nine years. Unfreaking real. *sigh*
So anyway..another ultrasound. How can one NOT be excited about that!
I am also going to schedule a 3d/4d ultrasound session with a place here in town. I can have my whole family there with us. We will get to watch Maya on ultrasound for 30 minutes, we will get lots of photos and a dvd video of it all. I can't wait!!
Anyway, that is the update for now. Pictures later!
Weeeee for nursery stuffs!!
I already have everything on the crib. For picture purposes only of course, as I have to wash all that stuff. But OMG. It is SO much cuter than I expected. I cried like a big dummy when I stood back to take a look at it.
I have to fly to the docs...pics later I promise!!

We started work on the nursery tonight. Now, yes, we did everything backwards. New floor, furniture, THEN paint. Dumb. I know. lol
But the floor and furniture will be covered when we paint ( with a sheet, NOT paint. LOL ). I am waiting on the bedding to get here before I paint because I haven't made up my mind what in the hell I am doing yet.
We put the crib together tonight. Woo!
the new floor in Maya's room
Maya's crib - side view
And from the front
aaand the changing table...
We have the dresser/hutch combo, but it is still in the garage. We will get it in here tomorrow hopefully. Her bedding will also be here tomorrow, at which point there will be more photos!
(and yeah, I know the pics are too big... I am too lazy right now to resize them, I will do it later!!)

Moving along - Week 25
I also started dragging the furniture out of the boxes. We are gonna put the crib together tomorrow ( I hope )...
I was not crazy about the color of the furniture at first. But now that I see it all together...eek. I love it.
The bedding should all be here by Friday. We still have to paint, and that is right around the corner.
Wow. I am going to be a MOM.
I LOVE feeling her kick. Sometimes she does it so hard that it makes me jump. Especially when she nails my bladder. Oy!
