And so we plan.

Ready for another fun post?? Yesterday we had another Dr appointment. We did the normal things like blood pressure, weight (She lied and told me I still look good), and the cup stuff. Then we did an ultrasound. I am sure that you will all be surprised to know that there wer still no kidneys. Not shocked? Well, believe it or not, I was. I don't know why I make myself think that this baby will be well before every single appointment, but I do. We got to spend alot of time watching her. It was good but very hard. She sucks her thumb and plays with her nose. We could even see her tongue moving. They just watched her profile for a long time so that we could see her. We schedule another appointment for 2 weeks from now and we will probably induce the week after that.

So, we had to do the crummy stuff. We went to the funeral home and picked out a casket. There are only 2 choices for babies and one looked like an ice chest so it wasn't a hard decision. We went and looked at cemetary plots. We found a nice place near a friend's baby and we think we'll put Faith there so she won't be alone. We bought her hospital, funeral home, and burial outfits (including one boy one, just in case) and a hand/footprint mold kit. We also found a Christmas ornament to bury with her and bought an identical one for us to hang on our tree every year for her. It was a productive day overall, but it still sucked. We think we are ready now. I guess we'll see.
