3D Ultrasound take 2

For anyone interested, here are the photos from yesterday's ultrasound. He was 28 weeks 6 days and measuring in at 32 weeks 4 days. His weight was 4lb 4oz which is about 1lb to 1 1/2 lbs bigger than his age currently. I looks like we are going to have a big one just like my last ultrasound predicted. I'll be getting another regular ultrasound in the next few weeks to check the numbers again. I'll keep you posted!


The Zoo...

...literally. This weekend was pure craziness at the Bean house. Mr. Bean was in Florida for the week with my computer so I was offline for 5 whole days! I'm not sure how I survived. He returned home on Friday at 3:30pm and we had to get clean and dressed for a formal at his work that we had to leave for at 5pm. Our first time every paying a babysitter was that night as well. She was a nursery worker from church who does the pre-K class. She also is the oldest of 5 kids with a 3 year old sister and is in her second year of early child hood development in college so we were fairly comfortable with her abilities when it came to watching our 2 1/2 year old baby bean. She arrived at 4:45 and we had to go over all the phone numbers, hiding places, bedtime routine, etc. So we got to the formal at 5:15. Social hour started at 6pm and the event (food and presentation) started at 7pm. This was in celebration of Mr. Bean's promotion as well as all others that go promoted with him. This promotion is a very big deal! Needless to say by the time we got home and got the babysitter out we were exhausted from the evening and him from his flight earlier that afternoon.

Saturday morning, my Uncle, his wife and their 3 boys (8, 12 & 14) came down along with an additional 8 year old to go to the zoo and then spend the night with us to go home on Sunday. We did not get to the zoo until about 11:45 am and it took us 1 hour to drive around the zoo 3 times to find an open parking lot to park in. We finally got home from the zoo at 5 and made dinner and watched some Olympics until we all crashed. Sunday all day Mr. Bean had an Auto Crossing event and the company went home. Thankfully we don't have any company coming this weekend but we do both of the last two weekends in August as well as the wedding I am making cakes for the last weekend in August. I don't see us slowing down until September I'm afraid.

I am doing well. I am 29 weeks and trucking along. I am exponentially more miserable this time around however due to his position being so low in my belly and him being so big. I don't remember if I mentioned this last time but when I went in for my 26 week ultrasound baby boy bean was weighing in at 2lbs 6oz when he isn't supposed to be 2lbs 5oz until 28 weeks. He was in the 92nd percentile for his weight when 6 weeks earlier he was in the 82nd percentile. I know those estimates can be off but with my families history of large babies (and I mean 9lb6oz and 10lbs 10oz) I am not ruling out the possibility of a 9 pounder this time around. I am having another 3D ultrasound tomorrow so I am going to see if I can get another weight estimate then.

Well, here are a few pictures from the fun filled weekend. Enjoy!
