6 weeks and counting

I am way behind on postings. I have 6 more weeks until Luke arrives. I had a sonogram done a couple of weeks ago and everything looks great. We debated on whether to have the 4D sonogram done. We decided not to because we wanted to be surprised at how he looks. I had heard that when you do the 4D you can really tell their facial features. I am glad we didn't do because the technician did try to show us his face in 4D and my placenta was blocking half of his face. So we were not able to see much. The doctors were shocked that he was measuring exactly on his due date. They said they usually measure a week before or a week after the predicted due date. He is in the right position.

I had an appointment yesterday and all was good. But I gained 6 lbs in 2 weeks....WOW. I will just say that Luke is taking on most of the weight....haha. I go back to the doctor in 2 weeks and they will start to see if I have dilated any.

Brian and I are both getting excited and nervous about Luke's arrival but we are both ready. We can't wait to see how much he will weigh and who he will look like. Will he get my big brown eyes or Brian's blue eyes? So many things to look forward to.

Last day off

I get to have the joy of being off during the summer since I work in the school system. Today is my last day to have off. My last day to sleep in, to lay around in my PJ's and just do what I want. Tomorrow I start back getting in the groove of things. At least I will only work for a couple of months and then get to have a "mini" vacation when Luke comes. I can't wait, only 9 more weeks and he will be here! The summer went by super fast.
