Wow... once again its been super crazy. Last week would've been the perfect time for me to update but I couldn't find the energy or the words. I was on bed rest which sucked... completely. A week ago Saturday I was working at the MHS garage sale with Christian. We were almost done with our shift when I felt this gush of something... checked and it was blood. It felt like immediately our whole dream was over... Thankfully Christian rushed me to the ER and after a couple hours we knew little one was OK... saw him\her on a sonogram and then heard the heartbeat! I saw Dr M on the following Monday and he set me up with a Perinatal Center to get a specialist's opinion. As of right now, it looks like we are on our way to recovery.
We saw the specialist yesterday. He was nice, but it was a very long visit. First I had to do the mountain of paperwork... took me like 20 minutes. Then I had to do the yucky part, weight and blood pressure. After that, it was the nurse's turn to ask me my history... its get so old repeating that stuff over and over! After that it was the genetic counselors turn when she literally drew a family tree outline of me and Chris and our extended family. Finally it was time to see the sonographer. One of the specialized services this place offers is high resolution sonograms. We got to see our sweet baby and all of its sweet little parts. From the brain to the finger and toes! She and the Dr both felt like baby was good, all of the measurements and such were right on. He did see a couple places along my uterine lining where there was evidence of bleeding. He said it should heal on its own and that it was really a wait and see kinda thing.
We also got an educated guess as to what this little one is... looks like the first guess is a boy! Which is all well and good... I know how to do boys. I know that I can love them like no other... If I say so myself, I am pretty good at mothering little boys. There's nothing more than the feeling of being their whole world. We will get another look at this little one in a few weeks and get a better look at the "goods" to know for sure what our little blessing will be!
I know there is probably more that I need to add to this but my brain is in a little bit of a funk... kinda on overload with the last week or so. I plan on taking week 15 pics tonight so that I can post that maybe tomorrow!
Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.
