Today marks 32 weeks pregnant and was our last ultrasound appointment. It turns out, baby girl didn’t feel like showing herself to mom and dad this morning. Her hands and feet were up in her face and she was slightly turned so no 3D photos were taken. Huge bummer as I was so looking forward to seeing her little face, but she will be here before we know it.  What we DO know is she is rocking a lot of hair, is currently positioned face down (thank goodness), and will more than likely be born on the petite side vs. a larger size baby. Weighing in at about 3.5 pounds right now, she is going to be perfect. My shower is next weekend, which I am so excited for, and also excited for the fact that I can really the nesting phase and getting everything we need ready for her arrival.  Baby girl is kicking like crazy, with her feet sometimes jabbing at my ribs, I wake up at least one time during the night to pee and lately… to take King outside to pee as well. He clearly is trying to get on my schedule. See below for a more thorough update.
