Quick note from doctor's appointment

Based on our appointment with Dr. Band this morning, everything looks/sounds great.  The baby's heartbeat is strong, about 153 bpm.  Aaron commented how different it is to listen now compared to December when we heard it for the first time.  The doctor was able to find it right away and the beat is loud and clear.

I also had my glucose challenge test this week to test for gestational diabetes.  The test involves drinking this liquid that reminded me of the orange stuff at McDonald's.  It wasn't nearly as bad as people led me to believe.  Results should be in later this week.

Big plans this weekend as we're heading to Charleston to celebrate our anniversary and one last get-away before the baby comes.  Two great reasons to relax and spend some quality time together!  Cullen and Ashley are coming to Maryland on Friday night and staying with Guinness for the time we're out of town.  We're looking forward to seeing them, our Christmas visit seems like a long time ago.  And Guinness seems excited about having friends come to visit.

Speaking of the little guy - Kate, Anthony and their dog Hoss sent Guinness this great t-shirt last week.  So while I have no pictures of the human baby to share, here's some of our doggus baby.
