Between technical difficulties and general uncooperativeness on New Baby's part, we ended up at the 3D ultrasound place three times and still haven't been able to get a clear photo of her face. She just loves to keep her fists up by her mouth - we might have a serious thumb-sucker here! As far as I can tell, she looks a lot like Julia but might have a little more me in her. That's a pretty safe guess though, so we'll just have to see the old-fashioned way - when she gets here.
She's more active than Julia was, and she hiccups rarely. She's finally head-down and positioned much how Julia was for the end of my first pregnancy (that's good - even though I still get the occasional bladder-punch, generally she's just kicking the outside and not my kidneys!).
I'm getting Braxton-Hicks a lot by now, brought on by everything from Julia nursing to me standing up quickly. No need to be worried until/unless they become consistent and time-able, says my OB, and they haven't been close. Not to mention that, at almost 33 weeks, she's plenty viable - not that I want her to come out underdone, but it's a relief mentally that she'd be fine if an emergency were to arise.
Her nursery has the essentials - furniture and diapers - with quite a ways to go on the details still. Fortunately I still have everything from Julia so I've had to buy very little. Getting ready has been so laid-back compared to the first time around that it feels like I'm forgetting a whole bunch of things. Thank goodness for Amazon and online ordering.
I also *finally* got a photographer lined up for an upcoming photo session. Whew. That was surprisingly tough - I've gotten a LOT pickier since I've taken more photos of my own. Although I'm nowhere near professional, I know just enough to be really critical of other peoples' portfolios.
