Results From This Morning

We had a successful check up this morning at the Cleveland Clinic Wooster Women's Health Center. After drinking my 32oz. of liquid, I was geared up and ready for the ultrasound. It was successful! Baby is healthy and doing well. It is pretty incredible to be able to watch all the baby's movement as the ultrasound tech takes all the pictures they need. With a gain of 3.5 whole pounds and a measurement of 21cm, we are doing well. I was informed today that your measurement should correlate with how many weeks along you are in your pregnancy. However, in my case, Dr. Bare also informed me that because of my short stature, that is why mine reads a little bit higher. Who knew?! It didn't surprise me in the least bit. It comes with the territory I suppose. Here are a few pictures from this mornings visit.

As you can see in this second picture, the baby is all stretched out. Phil sent this picture to all our parents as soon as we got out of the appointment and I quickly got a response from my mother-in-law saying, "Wow look at those legs! That kid already taller than Hannah : }" Oh how I do love her! And yes this child, I trust, will grow much taller then me!

Week 19: Gender of Baby

Today is October 25th and in about 45 minutes we will be going to have an ultrasound done to see if we will be having a boy or a girl. And wouldn't you like to know what we are having, huh? : )

November 13th we are having what we would like to call a :Pink or Blue Party:
It will be at my parents house at 6:00pm. All are invited! We just want a chance to get together to share with our friends and family and to celebrate!

Here are the latest pictures...
I can't hide it anymore...

Life continues to happen and I am so thankful for that! It is simply a reminder that God is still in control of this body no matter how it is changing!(For better or worse...) This is a picture of my friend Ashley and I. I don't get to see her very often, but when I do, she sure fills up the room with so much joy! Again, I can not even begin to say how thankful I am for community. I am blessed daily by those around us who have been walking beside us through this process.
