Update to Week 17 Posting

Well, last Thursday the doctor's office called and they'd already scheduled my level two ultrasound that my OB ordered. So, that's all set for 8:45am Wednesday morning. Such an inconvenient time of the day, but they said they got me into their first available slot so I guess I should keep the complaining to a minimum. Dad and Corliss (thank you!) are going to come over and watch Connor so that Jeff and I can go to the appointment. I'm really hopeful that all will be well and will post as soon as we know anything...I'm also assuming that we'll know boy or girl after the appointment so I'll be sure to share that news as well.

I'm very happy that the ultrasound got scheduled so fast so that we can put this whole concern behind us--hopefully. Some disappointing news though, is that I was told by the drs office today that I am no longer able to lift anything over 15lbs...including Connor. Yes, obviously he's walking but you wouldn't believe how many times in one day you pick up a toddler--getting in and out of the truck, to change a diaper, before he darts into the street, the list is endless. I'm just happy that he's in his big boy bed now or I would have quite the tough time getting him in and out of his crib. Ugh.

15lbs?!? I think my handbag weighs more than 15lbs. When I said that to Jeffrey he suggested a backpack. It's like he doesn't know me at all. A backpack. really??

That's it for now. I'll post details this week along with Christmas Eve and Christmas Day photos

Thanks for checking in on us...if you're not "following", please do! :)

Lindsay, just went blog hopping, and came across yours again. I had almost the exact same scenario with baby #2. I know how scary it is, being told what you MIGHT be in for, but not knowing for sure until the day you deliver. I ended up on bed rest, and then hospital bed rest, so if you need anyone to talk to about it, send me a message. I've been there, sister.

I appreciated the backpack comment - "like he doesn't know me at all.." Hilarious! Great to see you last night!

Oh, even better. Let's do a backpack on wheels! You can borrow Ben's! :)

For the ultimate ease and accessibility of purse-related items, I highly suggest a fanny pack. Or perhaps one of those touristy, over-the-shoulder "please rob me" flat packs. ;) I can only imagine how difficult it must be - hang in there!
