AnnaJo is over a pound!! Yea!

What a great day! First of all, it was a very beautiful, dry day! My week 23 appt was early this morning and went very well. My cervix measured longer today than it has yet...3 cm! Yea!! Bedrest and progesterone are working just like they are supposed to! The U/S tech even said today that if I keep on this track, i may carry AnnaJo to term. The dr joked that we may even go over, but that will not happen if I have anything to do with it. We are due on October 4, but I really want a September baby. Why, you ask? Because the birthstone in September is a sapphire. I have nothing against the October birthstone, but my engagement ring is a sapphire and they are one of my favorite gemstones! I have some other sapphire jewelry too, so I think it would be so fun for them to mean even more!

AnnaJo weighed in at 1 pound 5 ounces today...she is getting bigger! I can feel her move around very well now too. She is a mover and a shaker. Randi, our u/s tech, commented on her muscle tone too. She said she has good muscle tone in her legs, so we are hoping that she will be an athlete like her mommy and daddy!!

The rest of the day went great too... it's dry! It's not supposed to last too long though. It is supposed to rain tomorrow and Friday. :-( Cliff is off work this weekend, so the trim in my bedroom might be finished soon! We've only been living here for 2 years now. That's the plan at least. We'll see if I can actually mark it off the honey-do list after this weekend. He has been informed that the priority this weekend lies in finishing the bedroom rather than playing ball ... you might ought to say a quick prayer. I think he is fishing on Sunday for Father's Day, so that's something nice for him to look forward to. I think if he goes fishing, I'll head to the in-laws for some pool time.

Happy Father's Day! Enjoy your weekend!

Hi Kate!

Glad you and Annajo are doing so well. I must say there is nothing wrong with October babies! How about October 11? :) That's only a week past your duedate...j/k. Seth was a week late, and every day over seems like a month. I am not really wishing that on you!

I have a mover and shaker too. Everytime my doctor asks me if movement is doing okay, I tell her it's like a pinball machine in there! Our baby has calmed down a little though as she gets bigger. My next appointment is on the 19th. After that, I think I get to start going every 2 weeks.

Keep me posted.
