Today was ultrasound day. Ryan and I both went. We got to see Baby Perreault moving all around and got some pictures. The more colored pictures are 3-D. The tech said the baby was very active during the ultrasound. She would point out different black spots as different organs like the kidneys, bladder and stomach. The heartbeat was recorded at 138 beats per minute. We saw all 4 chambers of the heart at work. The tech measured different parts such as the head, femur and around the body. The doctor everything looked good and kept my due date at March 20th. We didn't find out if the baby is a boy or girl, so you will have to wait just like us!
That's all for now, except to say a congratulations to our friends Stephanie and David...they had a baby girl last Friday, Mallorie Marie.
I just love the fall! It's my favorite season: cooler weather, football games and all the new TV shows. I have been feeling really good, too. I have felt some baby movement this week! Just a few flutters, but it is still fun. I’ve definitely popped now, too -- I am looking pregnant, but not as much as my sister Allison, who's on #2. I saw her last weekend and we compared since our due dates are only 2 days apart. Ryan was away with the NDSU football team, so I headed to Crookston. Allison, Reese and Angela were there as well as mom and dad.
Ryan and I got a box in the mail from Ryan's mom this week and inside was Ryan's baby book. It was fun to look through it and see some pictures. Connie had kept a good record and even noted that one of his favorite first foods was pizza, of course.
Stay tuned -- we should have some ultrasound pictures up in about two weeks.
Well, not much has been happening at the Perreault household lately. We have a few paint colors picked out for the baby's room, but we need to narrow down exactly which colors are going where. I will have to take some pictures of the progress. Right now there isn't much to see besides a white room that looks like a closet. I guess I will have to narrow down my wardrobe to fit in all of the baby stuff.
This weekend Ryan is going to travel to Mississippi with the NDSU football team and I am going head to Crookston. Angela, Allison and Reese will be in Crookston so I figured I might as well join them.
