Pregnancy Update!

For those not in the know, I’m currently 31 weeks pregnant. After two boys, we’re finally getting our girl, and I’m so excited!

I usually take one day out of the week to write a blurb about a member of our family, and I figured why should I skip out on Jade?

So here we go, what’s up in Jade’s world?


I actually had an ultrasound last week, so I’ve got all the details and insider info ready!

Jade is measuring right on track! My due date is remaining in the January 25th area. I’m trying so desperately to avoid ALL the family birthdays that week. (Kody and my aunt share a birthday on the 23rd, isn’t that too close for comfort?)

She’s measuring at 3lbs 10oz, and we couldn’t get a decent length because she wouldn’t stop moving around. They actually weren’t able to get a specific picture of her heart because of her movement but said the ones they got were enough to detect anything.

She is still very obviously a girl, with no doubt at all from the tech or doctors.

This was actually the first ultrasound Kody was able to attend! You should’ve seen his face light up when they showed her little chin and nose profile.

She can turn her head, and her body is starting to plump up. We actually commented on the size of her arm muscles! She’s got some biceps on her.

I have a ton of Braxton-hicks, but nothing that the doctors are concerned about. Though this is my third pregnancy, I still call the doctors at least once a week if anything bothers me. I’m a very anxious momma.

I’m now having visits every two weeks! Time has flown by. Can you believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow?

She likes to turn around and flip a LOT. Last month’s ultrasound she was head down, this time her head is back under my ribs. I can feel her moving constantly, and I’m starting to think she never rests in there!

Her nursery is ready, we’ve got a partial layette, a closet full of wipes and diapers. I’ve got to stock up on some just-in-case formula, but I successfully breastfed the two boys and don’t foresee having any problems. Still, I always stock up just in case there’s an emergency, or someone is watching him and they run out of frozen milk

That’s pretty much all that’s going on in our world!

Do you have children? How many?
