27 Weeks

I totally forgot to get a belly picture this week, but you can kind of see it in this pic of my mom and me. This is the crib bumper that my mom made! I absolutely love it and so does Dax! I don't know why I am standing like that in the picture, but it is definitley not a very flattering position! The crib looks wonderful...thanks, Mom!!!! Everything is PERFECT!!! I will post some nursery pics once we get it looking good!

4-D Ultrasound Pics

Here are a few of the 4D ultrasound pics from 26 1/2 weeks. Dax wasn't cooperating. He didn't want to move his hand from in front of his face, and his foot was on top of his head the whole time! So cute, though! I don't know if you can tell, but in the first one, he has his eyes open. The last one was of him getting mad at the ultrasound tech, and flicking her off, for trying to wake him up! Looks like we're going to have a handful!:) We are officially in love with him and cannot wait to meet him! Since he wasn't cooperating, we get to get another 4D ultrasound this Wednesday, when we will be almost 29 weeks! Yay! We can't wait to see him again!

26 Weeks!

Guess what happened on our 26 week birthday? It snowed! Alot!!! Here are some pictures of Josh and I with the baby out in the snow! These are his first snow pictures! is the big reveal.......Baby Alford's name is going to be..........
Dax Thompson Alford.
Dax, just because we love the name, Thompson, because it is a family name on Josh's side. Hope you all like it as much as we do! :) Also, Dax had his first bout of hiccups this past Wednesday! It was so cute! Josh and I couldn't stop laughing. He had them for about 5 minutes. We are going to the doctor this Wednesday for our 4-D ultrasound! YAY!!! We are counting down the minutes until we get to see him again! We are so excited! We will also be testing for gestational diabetes that day, so hopefully all goes well and my test results come back good! We will keep you posted. Here is what is going on in my belly this week:

The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. He's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he's born and takes that first gulp of air. And he's continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches from head to heel.

25 Weeks

Here we are at 25 weeks. This is what is going on in my belly this week:

Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. His weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabega, but he's beginning to exchange his long, lean look for some baby fat. As he does, his wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and he'll start to look more and more like a newborn. He's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.
