And speaking of doctors...

Thanks to those who have been asking about my dad (he's been hospitalized since July 15th, for those who don't know). I won't get into all the details here since it's way too long to type, but he is slowly recovering.

I've been trying not to get too upset about it all for Annabella's sake...all this family needs now is for me to end up going into labor thanks!

It's been a quiet week for me so far with my doctors. Saw my high risk guy on Monday and he said that A is "beyond perfect". Music to my ears. Let's hope it stays that way for another 6 weeks.

If her activity level is any indication of her health, then she's going to be a marathon runner. She doesn't stop! Now we just need her to get over her camera shyness :)

Doctors, doctors and more doctors

Endocrinologist yesterday - all is good, although I'm starting iron pills now...not a big deal.

OB today - everything's still good with A...can't schedule my c-section yet...back in 2 weeks

Pediatrician today - nice doctors...great office (clean, new, and seperate waiting room for well infants)...very informative

OH and I got the christening date scheduled. Now to find a place...already started making calls. Another project I'd like finished before A arrives!

Had a great portuguese dinner with a friend...yum.

Frank's out at a client dinner...I'm hanging on the couch. Totally beat. A long, but productive day!

Who's her daddy?

Another appt. at the high risk doctor...another u/s...another bust.

The good news (and MOST importantly)....A is doing GREAT...growth is right on track, hb is wonderful, and my fluid is measuring normal. She weighs 4 lbs. 5 oz.

The bad news...she REFUSES to turn around to show that pretty face of hers! It was all back and butt, AGAIN. No pics to bring home, AGAIN.

Anyone who knows Frank knows he is ANYTHING but camera shy. This is nothing like him...she should be hamming it up every time we walk in there. WTF is up with this kid? He spoke to her 3 times this morning telling her to cooperate...I told him if this is any reflection of how she'll listen to him, he's in trouble.

Well, now I'm going on a weekly basis, so we'll have to hope for the best come Monday. I can't believe with all the ultrasounds I've had, we've yet to see her face!

For such a tiny person...

...she sure takes up a lot of space! Or should I say, her "stuff" does.

Still getting everything in order...and slowly but surely realizing that this house just ain't big enough for the three of us, LOL. I know, I know, it'll be fine...but I've run into a few roadblocks just this morning alone and it's freaking me out a bit. This damn nesting instinct is going to send my BP sky high.

I need a massage.

2 things I discovered this weekend that Annabella loves...fireworks and the Yankees. She was like a mexican jumping bean during each of them. She better be a Yankee fan considering we've got about 25 outfits for her! :)

OK, back to the organizing...
