Sick of seeing ultrasounds?

I really wanted to post these Wednesday but by the time I got home from work the router was having problems and then by the time I got home from my work meeting later that night I was pooped.

So here are some updated ultrasound pictures of Kamryn. She is doing really well and kicking and moving all over the place.

This one is from Friday May 15th. It is kind of hard to see if you don't normally look at ultrasounds it is her face, the top of her head is on the right and then she has her mouth open. She is breech at this point.

These 2 are from Tuesday May 19th. She flipped around and is head down. She is so active! The first one is of her hair (it's the fuzzy stuff coming off her head). It's hard to believe my baby has hair!

Miss chubby cheeks!

I am having major heart burn with this girl. I never got it with my boys so that is a change for me. Thank heavens for Tum, tu tum, tum, TUMS they are a lifesaver!

10 months

Today my Kooper would have been 10 months old. It is crazy to think that in only a few months it will mark a year since he passed away. I had to work last night I slept most of the day and when I woke up we went to get some new flowers to put in his vase at the cemetery. We are going tomorrow morning after my doctors appointment when it is MUCH cooler. Then to celebrate Mother's Day Ryan took Kade and I to Chili's. When we went to sit in the booth I realized how tight things were reminded me of this memory of being VERY pregnant with Kooper.

On July 8th, 2008 Ryan, Kade and I went up to some of our favorite outlet stores in Anthem. It is about a 45 minute drive from our house. I was hoping and praying that I would go into labor any day now. We went to the Carter's Outlet and a few others. We bought 2 very cute onsies. The one I picked out said, "Mommy's New Man" and the one Ryan picked out said, "I'm the BOSS around here!"

Ryan couldn't wait to take him to his work in this onsie to show off his new son. After our trip to the outlets I was craving some French Toast!!! Yummy! So we went to the Denny's across the street. I remember the waitress sitting us down at a booth and as I sat down my tummy reached the table and it wasn't very comfortable. I moved a little and I would bump into the table. It wasn't a movable table so we ended up asking the waitress if we could please sit at a table with chairs. I thought it was hilarious!

So many memories, I cherish them all.

We miss and love you so much! We have so many memories of the happy and exciting moments just preparing for your arrival and I enjoyed every second of you in my tummy(except for the morning sickness)! I enjoyed all the kicking and even the stretch marks you blessed my tummy with! They are special because you gave them to me.

Thanks for being such a HUGE part of our lives. You have made such a difference in so many lives, especially mine.

As I watched the primary kids sang the Mother's Day song in church yesterday I only wished that you could sing one day for me, and I know you will.

I love you and I am proud to be your Mommy!

Today I thought to myself and then even mentioned to Ryan. Would I ever call you Koop? I still wonder but part of me thinks no.

So until we meet again my little man!


Love, Mommy, Daddy and Kade!

Tiny Dancer!

I went in for my ultrasound this morning and she must be destined to be a dancer because she is now back to being head down and all day today I have felt her little foot in my rib! The tech looked at the cord and for now it is no longer around her neck which is wonderful news and I am also glad she got out of her Frank Breach position which is a harder breach position for babies to get out of.

So I was so happy and relieved this morning! I guess all those prayers worked!

She actually showed us her face a little bit. My placenta kind of got in the way of things, but these turned out a little better than the ones from earlier this week. The tech also said it looks like our girl has hair! Kade was practically bald, and Kooper had a full head of hair, so I guess we will just have to wait and see!

Miss chubby cheeks!

Pink, Pink, Pink...

Since I have had so many people ask about what the bead board looks like and the color of the walls (not the pink I imagined, but it's ok) I have a sneak peek for you...

And I thought I would show off the cute little seat belt straps I bought from an Esty shop called BabyBugsnBubbles.

I get to see my girl twice a week now!

I am so glad that today is my FRIDAY! YAY! Yesterday morning I had my weekly ultrasound called a BPP (which I now know stands for Biophysical Profile) This is what they do:
The BPP measures your baby's heart rate, muscle tone, movement, breathing, and the amount of amniotic fluid around your baby.

Well Tuesday we found out that the baby is now breach (last week she was head down). So I am hoping she will turn again and then stay put! She is measuring 4 lbs 4oz. Which is on the bigger side, but the good news is she is on track since the last ultrasound. She is gaining what the doctors would expect, a half a pound a week. Unfortunately I have been having a lot of anxiety and fear lately especially as it gets closer and closer to her coming. We did find out that right now the cord is around the neck. Not completely but going up over one shoulder around the back of the neck and then down the other shoulder. kind of like a boa (is that what those fluffy things are called? Anyhow the tech did a really good job of following the cord and making sure the blood flow was good.

I told Ryan, "These ultrasounds are supposed to make me feel better! Not scared out of my mind!" But we talked to the doctor and he is not concerned. 30% of baby's have the cord around their neck. So to keep a better eye on her and to put my mind at a little more ease I will be going in for BPP's twice a week! Which I think will be good for me and Kamryn.

It has been an emotional roller coaster that I cannot wait to get off of. I am sure my husband will be happy when I get off it too! FIVE more weeks....

I promise to get the nursery pictures up soon. I haven't had time to get my wall decor finished up, and hope to finish it up this week. Here are pictures of ultrasounds of my little "preciouscakes" as my doctor calls her.


10 tiny toes!
