23 week visit and Appliances!

We went back to the doctor yesterday to have a check-up and everything looks great! I'm measuring around 24 weeks (about 5 days ahead) and I finally gained enough weight over 4 weeks to make the nurse happy :) The report from the ultrasound that we had 4 weeks ago mentioned that there was a bright spot on the heart, which could indicate Down Syndrome, but that was the only thing they could find and estimated our risk to be less than 1 out of 600. The doctor also said that she has never heard of or seen Down Syndrome when the only sign they found was the spot on the heart (there's other indicators- Avery doesn't have any of those). The doctor didn't seem to be worried at all, and they didn't recommend any genetic consultation, so I'm trying not to worry about it :) Our next visit will be with our new doctor here in town... and I've got to do the gestational diabetes test sometime in the next 4 weeks or so. The weeks are just flying by!

23 weeks, 0 days pregnant!

The most fun part about going to St. Louis (I had to resist the urge to type "funnest") is the time we get to spend with our friends the Pandukus! Here's a picture from our visit to the St. Louis Science Museum on Saturday
William and I with Anna and 3 of the boys: Carson, Caleb, and Colin... we built the arch!

When we got back into town we decided to go by the house... and we had appliances!! YAY!! For those of you who want random details: they're all GE appliances... The house will be officially finished Friday morning, so we're trying to speed the process with the mortgage company so we can have the weekend to move stuff and start painting

Microwave and counter-top range

YAY! I'm so excited for you and your house. The appliances look great (as does the rest of the house, since i dont think i've commented on them).

As for Avery, i'm glad things are going well! I dont know if it helps but she had more than the heart spot and we were told we had a 50/50 shot in her having down's. She came out fine. kinda... haha! just joshin'! :)

You look fabulous by the way!
