Ohh never the words you want to hear the ultrasound tech udder as he is measuring. Then he asked if I was sure about how far along we are. hehe, must be thinking we are further along than we are. In fact all of the points that were measured, measured closer to 32 weeks than the just shy of 29 weeks we were supposed to be at. Am I surprised? Not really.
The doctor was funny, she was like, you aren't a short person, neither is your husband, so you shouldn't expect to have a short baby. Valid point.
So the baby is 3 lbs 11 oz today. We are in the 85th percential for weight. You know some people have to have bigger babies and some people have to have smaller babies to get that whole percential scale. I'm told the test is accurate up to 10%. We are going to have another scan at the end of September to double check the size of the baby.
The c-section option was brought up if the baby gets too big. To be readdressed at the end of Sept.

That white wall behind Carol is going to be the chalkboard wall. It is going to be black, but hopefully since it's under all the windows, the room won't get too dark from the black paint.
I felt a bit guilty just standing around and not painting. I know I"m on doctors orders not to exert myself and to limit activity, but I still feel like a lazy bum when other people are doing a bunch of work for me and I'm just sitting there watching.
We had a full day of baby class on Saturday. Here's the thing, I kinda wanted to sneak out at lunch and not go back. sooooo bad I know. I don't feel like I really learned anything aside from Levi will get to eat for free while I'm in the hospital. I think Levi got some information out of it though, maybe.
The class was very biased towards the Catholic views, ok yes it's a Catholic hospital, but you would think it would be an unbiased class. Whatever :)
What I did learn is that I am HUGE!!! We got partnered with another couple in the class and she was due in 3 weeks and I was literally the same size if not bigger. In fact, everyone was due way before me and I fit right in. Is our baby just going to be huge? Maybe really tall. Who knows. I can tell you that no one believed I was due the middle of October

I just got my first glance at the invitations on Sunday. August 27th looks promising and fun! I like that spouses and children can come.
It sounds like we are going to try and do another family reunion style event at the shower like we did at our wedding. It will be interesting if the extended family on my side decides to come down. I have a feeling it will be either all or none :) You are all welcome to attend!!!
My boss at work is being funny. I guess there is a conference in Chicago she wants me to go to at the end of August, but she's unsure if I'll actually be still at work and not on bed rest at the time, so it's hard to make a decision to send me or not. My response I guess didn't help, I told her to just book it and if something happens that someone else from our office can go. There are other people that would benefit from the conference :)
And in other news, we are officially actually painting the nursery this weekend. And by we, I mean Levi's parents. Levi and I have baby class all day on Saturday, so his parents are coming out to paint the room and have the fumes all vented out before we get back. I will be curious to see the final product. You know when you choose a paint color off a swatch, it never looks exactly the same once it's on the walls.... And I'm very excited about the chalkboard wall. Not sure if it is still going to be a magnetic chalkboard wall or just chalkboard. But either way, I think it will be a fun addition. Soooo excited they are willing to help out with this stuff. I know we've had the primer for the wall for like a month and literally have not done anything with it. So they are really making sure we have a space ready for the baby :)
