Baby Update

Another doctors appointment has come and gone!  This one was a standard “4th month” checkup.  There were lots of questions (have you felt this – have you done that – have you seen any of this – have you had any of that – can we have some more of your blood - etc etc etc).  It was a lot like taking a test!

Fortunately, we had the right answer for all of the questions.  The doctor is very happy (even surprised) and how well things are going.  And since everything is going so well – the doctor decided not to do an ultrasound (bummer!).  But we did get to listen to the babies heartbeat – it’s still a strong 150 beats per minute!

The next big appointment is July 8th.  That’s the 2nd trimester anatomy ultrasound!  Lot’s of detailed pictures where the look at the eyes and look at the nose, count the fingers and count the toes.  And if baby cooperates – we’ll get to find out if it’s a boy or girl!

And there is just a little more than 23 weeks to go.  Wow!

So glad that everything is going well!! Most important are the health of mama and baby. We had our level 2 US on June 5. It lasted about 15-20 minutes and was the most awesome experience. You get to see the chambers of the heart up close and it's incredible. We found out we are having a girl! We've got 15 weeks to go! Praying for you guys! Love ya'll!
