Saw Our Eleanor today!

I had hoped to go into labor this morning so I could avoid going to my last scheduled sono with my MFE, but no dice. Nonetheless, it was good to see her again, I just feel even more excited and eager to meet her in person!

I had a ton of contractions earlier in the day, so my friend that planned on staying home with Sean decided that she should go with me to the appt incase I needed her to drive us back. We loaded up her 2 1/2 yr old and my son in the van and they both fell asleep on the way there. She offered to stay in the van with them during my appt so they could nap. Luckily it wasn't too hot today & we parked in a parking garage.

Anyway... my little girl did great for her sono, fluid looks good, placenta is holding out and she has grown! The estimated weight is 7 lbs 4 oz right now. She is definitely engaged, it was hard to get the shots of her head. Her hair is so long, the tech estimated it was around 1 1/2 inches long! I wish our scanner was working so I could add a pic of her hair. Maybe Doug can scan it in at work. Missy had her arm over her mouth, so as usual we didn't get a pretty face picture.

Contractions have eased up, so maybe we will make it to August after all.

Edited to add the photo of her hair:

WoW- that's a lot of hair! Can't wait to see a picture of her after she is here.
