Biophysical Sonogram and a Wonderful Visit

Yesterday, I went and had a biophysical sonogram done to make sure about all the fluid levels and that the placenta was still operating correctly and all.  All was good.  It went very smoothly and I got to see the baby in action.  It was really very neat.  I've never had a sonogram this late in a pregnancy before.  The baby was very active and was using his/her tongue quite a bit.  Looked a lot like the baby was tasting the amniotic fluid.  We had just stopped by Freddies for lunch, so I'm thinking this one is going to be a big fan, too. :)  They printed out some pics for me and the kids got to see a little preview of who's coming soon. 

Both times I've gone in, they've wanted to push my due date back because the baby seems to be small.  As in under 8 1/2 lbs.  Zekey has been the only one that was over 8 lbs.  He was 8 lbs 14 oz.  Braden was 7 lbs 6 oz and Ailey was 6 lbs 5 oz and she was over a week over due.  Anyway, needless to say, I don't place a lot of stock in due dates. :)  Here are pics of our very comfy little one:

 This one is a frontal if the face.  It looks like the baby's face is smooshed up against a window.

 The rest of these are side shots of the profile.  This kiddo has chubby cheeks and a double chin.  Reminds me of the way Ailey's profile is, though all my kiddos have had the chubby cheekies. :)

After the sonogram, we went to JoAnne's cuz my honey loves me! ;p  Sam asked if I would like to go visit Reina, since we were more than half-way there and I was all for it.  Miss my Reinababes!!  We called to see if she was available to meet and hang out for a bit and it all worked out. Yay! We met at the city park closer to where she lives and the kids had a great time.  We also met a very interesting man and his family while we were there.  In the course of conversation, we learned that the kiddos he had with him were 5 of a total of 8.  I love meeting people with larger families.  I always like hearing how their family progressed there.  He was very entertaining and we were all just having a good time and laughing.  It was Fun!  After the park, we went for barbeque, hung out a little more and then called it a day.  I'm so glad we all got to get together.  Hopefully, this will be the beginning of much more frequent visits now!  Woohoo!
