63 days to go...and by the time most of you read this it will be 62 days!!!

I feel like many times after rereading my entries I have a tendency to be a bit repetitive, and I apologize! It's just that I have been feeling the same for a while now. I am very anxious for Kinsley's arrival. The closer we get the more excited we get, I have to admit though we get a bit more scared with each doctor visit near the end.

We met with our new doctor here in KC last week for the first time. We absolutely loved her as soon as she walked into the exam room. She is a very spunky mid-aged woman. You can tell she loves her job, and we felt very comfortable right away. In fact she kind of reminds me of Jason. She was loud and spoke without talking a breath due to her excitement for life. That is one thing I love about my hubby, when he is passionate about something you can feel it in his voice:) Any who...she decided she wanted me to go in for a prenatal echo cardiogram. Not because she felt we needed to, but because she wants to be sure I do not let my anxiety take the best of me during these last few weeks. We thought that seemed like a reasonable thing to do. Our appointment was this afternoon.

First off we met with the genetic counselor, all routine to us, she had nothing new for us we hadn't already heard. The we went in for what we thought was the echo. We ended up only having another level 2 ultra sound. We were a little disappointed, because one the doctor was, as Gracie would say, a Crabby Patty. We just felt like we were a waste of her time, which is not something you want to feel like when you have been through our previous experiences. So we did not appreciate the in and out she gave us. She didn't even do an echo, she said everything looked good on the ultra sound, but because I am so far along the ultra sounds miss about 50% of heart defects...gee lady, thanks for the comforting thoughts!

I hate complaining, because I don't want people to give us special treatment, or go out of their way for us, but geez oh petes, have a little better bedside manners! She gave us great news that Kinsley looked very healthy, but I just wish she'd of been a little nicer. To be in that kind of specialty I guess we just expected a little more from the doctor. Her nurse was really nice, she did tell us that Kinsley's measurements are right on target. She is weighing in at 3 and a half pounds...wow, that is already half of where Gabi was when she was born! We got 3 new pictures of her to add to our very small collection. She even printed an extra one for Gracie to have of her own. Gracie carries it around with great pride! I guess I failed to mention, but you probably figured it out, Gracie went with us today to the appointment. She thought it was soooooo cool seeing sissy on the tv screen!!!

I have one last thing to add, at last weeks appointment, Dr. Hartung said she would not be surprised if Kinsley was 3 or 4 weeks early. She said our bodies have a tendency to repeat what they have already been through. Since Gabi was 3 weeks early, she wouldn't be surprised if Kinsley popped out early! I was very excited hearing that, but I am trying really hard not to focus to much on it. I want her out soooooo bad, my body is so uncomfortable, but I also want her to be ready! I can already tell she has dropped a little, but we still have a ways to go. So early or not, we will be anxiously awaiting our little sweet peas arrival!!!

I too can not wait to see little Kinsley. She is going to be in a wonderful family who truly deserves having her. I am sure you are getting very anxious to meet her, and uncomfortable as well (although you looked so adorable last time I saw you). I hope things are going well for you guys and that you and Gracie are having a wonderful spring break together. Have fun.

Love, Amy
