Quick Baby Update

No pictures this time.

We had another baby Dr. appointment yesterday and several people have been asking how things are going so I thought I'd share them here. Yesterday we were 37 weeks +4 days. At Samsung, we had an ultrasound, non-stress test, and an examination by the Doctor. Overall, the outcome... things are just fine!

Again, they say the baby is a bit big... 8 pounds already! But of course that's just an estimate based on the sonogram. A friend of mine recently encouraged me that they (at the same hospital) had told her that her baby girl was 9.5 pounds but in the end she really only came out at 8.1. So, that's encouraging to me at least!

Baby is in the correct head-down position. During the non-stress test it was neat to see that I had 2 short sharp contractions (which I couldn't even feel.) But... at least my body is starting to gear up for the main event!

Other news, though, wasn't quite as promising. The baby is still floating (as in hasn't "dropped" yet), no dilation, and only 25% effacement. At the end of the appointment, the Doctor said, "in my experience, delivery is not impending." Which basically meant, "see ya next week!" Which is fine. I'm ok with another week or 2 or even 3 if need be. My vitals are doing good. Weight and blood pressure are steady. So, we'll see when this event actually gets going.

We'll keep you posted as things develop further!

Baby Room

So, we did this a couple of weekends ago, but I forgot to post the pictures. We were finally able to go to E-Mart and purchase the last few things (for now) that I thought we needed for the baby nursery. Things are looking quite nice in there now I must say. Check out the pictures and notice the new additions of the plastic dresser/drawers, cool rug, and cutesie trash can.

Valentine's Post

My husband was so good to me over this last Valentine's week. We ended up going out 3 TIMES in one week! Friday night before Valentine's Day he took me to get pedicures... one of my favorite things to do here especially when he does it WITH me! He likes it, too. Don't let him tell you otherwise. He LOVES having his feet tickled. :)

I don't have any pictures of the pedicures. But then on Saturday our church had a Valentine's Banquet that we attended. Here is a picture of up at that event.
And then on Monday, my Love took me out to Outback Steakhouse. So yummy! We don't get to splurge like that very often so it was a great treat for us. Then we came home, took a walk & discovered a new Christian Bookstore close to where we live. We explored that (although don't get too excited because everything is in Korean). Then we came home, played a board game and have some family devotion time. Such a great evening. Thanks, Baby!
