Gavin and House pics

Here are some random pictures of Gavin and some Grandma Lois took of the new house in progress. This weekend we went to lunch with Lois and picked up Gamma and Dan from the airport. Other than that not much excitement! We see the high risk doctors again this Thursday. Keep your fingers crossed for nothing but good news! We are entering the "danger zone" so I am really curious to see how well this surgery works.

Ummmm...Sponge Bob macaroni and cheese!
The siding will be painted. Red.
Gav refusing to take a picture. Me "not even looking pregnant" - thanks Grandma!
This will eventually be my dream kitchen, a triangle island and corner pantry - oh my!
You are looking at the dining room and what will become the railing around the staircase to the basement.I have no idea why this picture is so small. This is the view of the corner of the living room where the fireplace will be.

Dr Visit

We have such good news from our appt today - everything looks great! I can go back to work full time next week and we'll be seeing the doctor every two weeks and evaluating my activities at each visit depending on how things look. But so far so good! We are getting close to 15 weeks - 17 - 18 weeks is kind of our danger zone where things go wrong, so I am going to be pretty anxious until we get through that time frame and see what happens then. But for now - all good things.

For all of you that keep asking - no news on the baby's sex, these ultrasounds are all business and we actually just saw the baby in passing, it was just for getting measurements of where they did the surgery and to get a heart rate on the baby. Today it was 153.

Allright, so now that I am home for a week with nothing to do, you will finally get lots of updates.

First of all Bridie had surgery Friday, and everything went well. I spent the weekend just taking it easy and laying around, and Gamma kept Gav overnight Friday and most of the day Saturday, so that really helped out a lot. Yesterday we finally told Gav he was going to be a big brother. He didn't really have much of a reaction, but he was concerned about whether the baby would take his mimi. He also kept putting his hand on my tummy and telling me he could feel the baby - I'm sure he couldn't, but it was very sweet.

Anyway, I am off this week from work, so I will finally get all our vacation pics updated (scroll down to the vacation pics post to see the rest of them). I go back to the doctors on Thursday to see how everything looks and if I can go back to work. Today is the 15th so we officially have 6 more months to go!
