Quinn is a MAN! (Check out the First pic!)

We went to the ultrasound doctor today. First, apparently appointment does not mean the same thing to them that it means to me. When I make an apointment for 9:30, I expect I go in at 9:30 or a little bit after. I didn't think it meant we go in at 11:15. Let's just say that I did NO work this morning...No billable hours :(

Anyway, Quinn's pictures came out good. We got a closeup of his man parts. I think he was showing off for the camera. There's no other way to explain how well-displayed they are. We also saw his hair, that's the thin white strands in the second picture. Both Amanda and I were very excited he has hair and won't come out looking like my Dad.

And, apparently, Quinn has big feet too. You can see his Fred Flinstone feet in the last picture -- That is definitely a Mitchell Trait! It was pretty cool seeing all his bones, spine, legs, etc. -- lots of detail.

We also got a closeup of his face, and he was VERY HANDSOME! But, for some reason, the nurse didn't give us that picture. So, we'll just have to wait another 5 weeks to see him up close.

He's 5.5 pounds right now with a lot of growing time left. So, he's right on track to be a big, healthy boy. Everybody keep him and Amanda in your prayers until he gets here.

Dr. Visit Update

I had my bi-weekly doctor's visit yesterday and everything seems okay. Quinn's heartbeat is perfect and we could hear him rolling around (or doing one of his dance moves). Dr. Anding was a little surprised at Quinn's measurement though (really my uterus measurement). It was only 32 cm when it should have been 33.5. I'm having an ultrasound next week to check on my "low lying" placenta, so he will also check Quinn's size and make sure he is growing at the correct rate. The Braxton-Hicks contractions are in full swing and sometimes a HUGE one catches me off guard and causes me to freak out for a minute. Everything is moving right along!

Still Dreaming

Last night I dreamt the baby was a girl for the fifth time. She was born on July 10 and weighed 16 pounds. And she had jet black hair. Where does this stuff come from?

Ben said he dreamt that he had to hold the baby with one hand and try to feed and change it with the other- all at the same time. Sounds like someone needs to work on multi-tasking! :)

31.5 weeks!

Check out the belly! It even wiggles like bowl full of jelly when I laugh!


Quinn's Heartbeat!

Yesterday, Amanda and I went for her latest checkup. She's doing great except the doctor got on to her for not drinking enough water...

Anyway, Quinn's heartbeat was the right rate and we got a little video of how it sounds. We think it's sounds just a little bit like a cappuccino machine...at least one from a really old taster's choice commercial.

I was hoping it sounded a little bit more like "ga gong, ga gong, ga gong" like in Dirty Dancing.

Anyway, hope everyone enjoys the beats!

--Ben

P.S. Make sure you pause the song player below or you won't be able to hear the heartbeat over the music.
