the little man passed his latest tests with FLying colors. Momma is still maintaining the last week. Yippee.. I was hoping that drinking all this water would have it go up a little. at least I would feel like a balloon for a reason. It has been wonderful this week...I have really been able to feel him move more and more. I love it. It gives so much peace to feel him moving around.

Here are the pictures I promised of the nursery too. I love the way it has turned out. the most recent update is a matress for the crib...daddy is feeling this little boy might be coming soon rather than later too.

We really love how it has turned out. It is Adrian's favorite room in the house. Probably because it is all clean and organized...not overly cluttered...I told him just wait until there is an 18 -24 month old and all of his toys in there. Enjoy it now...while it is clean.

Gloria helped make the bedding and we are still waiting on the bed skirt, so I will give you a final pic when it is finished with curtains too. For now we wait.

Update on the Little Man

Well it has been another month and we had another check-up. This time I headed in knowing I was in for a long morning, gestational diabetes test, a growth ultrasound, and a regular check-up. But what I didn't expect was that there would be things to be concerned about.

The growth ultrasound showed that I was low on amniotic fluid, so i was sent for a stress test on the baby, a Doppler ultrasound in radiology and a steroid shot in labor and delivery. I then headed to the specialist in South Bend to have them do an ultrasound and check my fluid levels and the blood flow on the baby.

I guess to wrap it all up, they look for fluid levels to be between 7-20 and we are at 8. So we are bordering close to the scary levels of fluid. So the doc is being cautious and preparing us to possible have a baby that is delivered prematurely. At this point and time we are just waiting and praying for the little man to hang in there and for my placenta to produce more fluid. Also for healing if there is a tear that we don't know about somewhere where I would be leaking fluid. That is about all we can do for now, Place him in God's hands.

In the meantime I am packing a bag for delivery, bought a matress and adding the final touches to the nursery, getting the car seat and the other stuff we are borrowing from people in our possession. These things I guess just help me to prepare. Coming soon are pictures of the has been quite the process and Adrian has been awesome. He pretty much did it all, quite the handy man. You'll have to wait and see.
