Last Trimester

I can't believe we have now entered the downhill slope of everything. It still seems surreal, it is still very exciting and I can't believe how fast it is going by. We had two dr appointments this week. One with the high risk doctor and one with my regular OB. The high risk doctor said everything is measuring perfect, her spine still looks good along with her brain and heart. They are having to keep an eye on my placenta because there are some "lakes" in it, which can cause a build up of blood and restrict blood flow to the baby which would cause decreased growth. Right now it looks fine, but we will have to go back in 4 weeks to have that checked. In other news, I only gained 1 lb in the last month, although it looks as if it were way more... Oh well thats just how it goes. My belly is measuring perfect too. We also go back to see my OB doctor in 4 weeks and at that appt we will schedule the c-section so she will actually have a birthdate, which is hard to believe. She currently weighs 2lb.1oz and everything is on track.
I'm so very thankful for a good report. I really feel like I'm living out a miracle and can't believe God chose us for such a blessing.

Marc bought Maren a little present for my b-day. Its the 1st time he has ever gone shopping for her, and it about made me cry when I opened it. Sweetest, most thoughtful present ever.

This was the best picture we could get of her. She would not turn her face to us the whole time but this is sort of her profile. The bubble (by her nose) is the umbilical chord and next to that she was throwing up the peace sign! This is the 3rd time we have seen her throw up that peace sign. So maybe we will have a hippie child?! I'd love that.

My sweet mother-in-law found us the stroller I had my eye on and got it for us for our birthday, baby and anniversary present! :). I'm so excited, I love this thing. Mainly because it turns so easy and its super lightweight. Oh and I love it b/c it is also orange!!! I had to find a super light one that would be easy to lift in and out of the car for my back. I think this one is perfect and it folds super easy.

Tomorrow is Marc's b-day and we are headed to the lake to celebrate! Then the next weekend I have my very first shower, which is unbelievable!
