Evelyn Hope Lance

Is what we will be naming our sweet baby girl! We have loved that name and named one of the twins that. We still love it and still want to use it. I have always wanted my kids to have "family names" or names with "meaning" And wasn't sure if I wanted to use "Hope" still because it's not a family name. But it does have meaning in our family and we love it!
We picked the middle name "Hope" after the first twin died. We had" Hope" that we would bring the other baby home with us. We didn't get to bring her home but we will bring this new baby home and we are so excited!
We got an Ultrasound today and it was so fun to see her again! I have been used to seeing her every 2 weeks and this time it had been a month since I had seen her. She's a lot bigger this time so it was hard to get a shot of her whole body. We didn't get very good pictures but these are the best they got. Her mouth was opening and closing so that was super cool to see! She looks like she has chubby little cheeks already! She weighs a little over 2 pounds! I just think everything about her is a miracle! We love her so much and cannot wait to meet her!!


Good shot of her nose and mouth! Ha ha It looks like she will probably have my nose. Its kind of weird that you can't see her eyes or anything in this picture. Oh well, as long as she has them. That's all I'm worried about!

I also took my glucose test today. Got to drink that delicious drink and get my blood taken. The drink was actually pretty good. It tasted like an Orange Otter Pop. YUM! They had to take the blood from my hand because she couldn't find my vein in my chubby arm. She found that out AFTER she stuck the needle in my arm. Getting blood taken from your hand hurts! I had an IV in my hand when i was in the hospital so I thought I remembered what it felt like. I didn't. I think it hurt worse. Glad it's over! It actually wasn't that bad!
Anyway, everything is going well and we love our little baby girl!

Oh yeah- you made me laugh when you said the drink tasted like an orange otter pop. For some reason I had this flash back to when we were kids and hiding by the laundry at your house...and seriously DOWNING those otter pops (i actually think they were mr. freezes:), and we were trying not to get caught...but seriously? There were so many missing...haha. I don't know why, that just popped in my head! Silly little girls we were.

Euw that's awful you had to get the needle in your hand. I HATE ivs/needles in the hand. It doesn't compare to the arm. I'm so sorry you had to go through that! Ok- i'm major pregnant brain- because when I read your post- I thought it said "Evelyn Hope Dance" and I thought- oh she must have gone to some fundraiser for cancer or soemthing- you know- Hope, a dance- some kind of event- where has my brain gone? Love the name- one of my grandma's names is Evelyn, love that name. I wish mike were into family names, but he hates all of them- ahha. love you!
