So, for my little scare, I've had Braxton Hicks contractions every now and then for about 10 weeks. Well, last night, they decided to kick it into high gear. I was having one about every 5 minutes. So after staying calm for about 6 in a row, I started to freak out from the 7th through the 15th. I looked up anything I could about them and found that if you have more than 4 in an hour, go to the hospital. Well, considering I'd had about 13 in an hour, I started to panic. We were fairly close to going to the hospital when my doctor called me back and told me not to worry and just go to sleep. I liked that option better, so that's what we did! They continued through the night, but today have been much better today.
We thought for a moment we might have an extra special Christmas present! We're glad we just got the snow instead. Merry Christmas!

Speaking of OBGYN, we had our last monthly checkup yesterday. Ty got to go with me and meet the Dr. (I switched Doctors as of last month, so that's why Ty is just now getting to meet him.) Everything still looked good. At my request, though, he is changing my due date to 2/4/10 based on my calculations of when Drayton actually came into this world. I wanted it changed b/c I don't want to be induced if at all possible and this will give him an "extra" week to cook if he needs it. Hopefully he won't need it, but you never know. So we will start going every 3 weeks, and then soon it will be 2!!! Sorry for the lack of pictures. I will post my (now) 29 week pictures soon!

Just look at him. How could I not know he was the one?

Ty and Marlee
After the Lincoln Logs, we were a little bit thirsty, so we got some wholesome Dr. Pepper.
Of course when you go outside, it is important to take your shoes off when you come back inside.
We are so blessed to have such sweet neices and nephews! It is definitely helping us prepare.

We had our 20 week checkup with the Doctor Wednesday and then with the perinatologist yesterday. We are going to a specialist because we found out a few months ago that Ty and I are both carriers of cystic fibrosis. This means that any child we have has a 25% chance of having it. We are asking for prayers that this little boy will be healthy and CF free! We are trying our best to trust in God no matter what happens. Today we got a detailed ultrasound and the doctor said that everything looks good so far. They can sometimes tell from ultrasound if the baby has it, but they can't rule it out. So it was really good news to hear that so far everything looks great! The doctor said he thinks he will look like Ty. Don't know how I'd feel about being told I resemble a skeletor. But I do think it would be cute if he looked like Ty, which means he would probably look like a boy Lilly! And that would be fine with me.
Ok, it has taken me forever to figure out how to post this sonogram. The file was too big, so I had to record it on my camera in a smaller file size to post it on here. Surely there is a better way. Anyways, the video is about 5 minutes long and a lot of it is hard to tell what it is. But I just think it is so fascinating to see the little guy moving.
