The Final Countdown!

Well we made it to 30 weeks - which means there are only 10 left!!! I have no idea where the time went. It seems like July and August took forever but these past two months just flew by.

I will be making my last trip this weekend before he comes. We are headed to Columbia to watch some Gamecock Football. I am very excited to see my friends and tailgate before the game. I hope he enjoys his first Gamecock Experience! I also hope he gets to hear a win because those aren't always that common when we attend a game!

Here is a little update on his size and what is developing this month. All five senses are finally functional, and the brain and nervous system are going through major developments. He is the size of a squash and weighs somewhere between 3.2 and 3.8 lbs.

29 Weeks - Halloween Party

Charlie and I attended a Halloween party this past Saturday. Our costumes weren't too creative but they worked! We had a lot of fun at the party and met some new people in the area. Here is pic of the two of us and than a 29 week bump pic.

Albany Trip

This past weekend we headed up to Albany, NY to celebrate Charlie's Poppy's 90th Birthday! The party was Saturday afternoon and it was a great time. We had so much fun hanging out with family and getting to meet some old friends of Poppy's.

Here are some pics from the weekend - this is my 28 week baby bump pic.

Week 29 and Baby Due Date Poll

We have entered into Week 29 - which means only 11 more weeks!!!! While I am very excited - there is so much to think about and still get done. I know we can do it though!

If you look over to the left I have added a link so you can vote on when you think the little guy is going to show up. I look forward to seeing what everyone thinks!

I will post pics from our Albany trip this past weekend a little later on today. You can see that my bump is getting a little bigger!

28 Week Ultrasound

We had our last photo session with our little guy this morning! He did great - the tech got all the shots that she needed.
He is weighing in around 3.2 pounds, his head is measuring around 30 weeks and his heartbeat was at 151.
We got to see some great shots of his face and he even stuck his tongue out at us!

Here are the pics...

Front of his head and his chubby little cheeks

Profile shot with his arm up and him making a fist.

I passed!

I finally passed a test at the doctor's office! I did originally fail the one hour glucose test, but I passed the three hour with flying colors! I was so happy that I passed - I made an apple pie for dessert last night.

My brother and Charlie said I could not make the pie, but I did it and of course I made it in true Amy fashion.....I set off the smoke detectors ;) Oops! Apparently I need to work on my crust and keeping it closed so the juices don't ooze out. All in all though it tasted yummy!

Apple Picking - 26 Weeks

This past weekend we headed up to New Jersey to see family and friends. On Sunday we headed to the Apple Orchard with my family. It was the first time I had ever been before and it definately won't be the last. We had a great time!!! Here are some pics from the Orchard. You will also see my 26 week bump in these pics.....
