ultrasound pic, prayer request, and weekend away

First off... here is our little girl, with her hands up by her face:

Isn't she a cutie? ;-)

As for that prayer request...
I just got a call from the Birth Center that while everything looks perfect with our little girl (her measurements are all spot on), my amniotic fluid is low. So I have to go in for another ultrasound tomorrow morning with the perinatologist to see if it was a fluke thing (mis-measurement, I was a little dehydrated, one off reading) or something we need to worry about (depending on the level could mean monitoring, bed rest, hospital stay for fluids, etc). I'm trying to be relaxed about this and just assume that it is nothing until we hear otherwise, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little scared. Can I seriously just not have a normal pregnancy?!
Prayers or low-fluid experiences are requested. Thanks.

On a nicer note... we had a wonderful weekend away! The weather was chilly and it rained/drizzled off and on for the whole time we were there... but the B&B we stayed at was wonderful, and we had a really nice, relaxing time. Plus, the fall foliage there was lovely.

"Haunted" tour through the old jail:

It was an easy drive up and back, the place we stayed was very nice, and the pup was good for Trav's coworker (who puppy sat). All-in-all, it was a wonderful weekend away, and I'm so glad we did it.

Now its back to work for me... though Trav still has two days off (one each furlough and vacation). Back tomorrow afternoon with news.
