Halfway there! This morning, Paige did not surprise me when she said “Happy Twenty weeks!” We went to the Dr appt and were given the news after the sonographer patiently worked with an uncooperative baby (the big sisters were NOT so patient). Finally she announced that she didn’t see any boy parts, and that she was pretty sure that she saw girl parts..so girl it is! My doctor later confirmed this opinion.
Now back to the business of how we are keeping this unborn daughter on the inside longer! I am no longer strictly on bedrest..which is a HUGE blessing. I am able to do light activity now. I will say that after a big day of going to the doctor and out to eat, that I was pretty crampy and uncomfortable for over an hour this evening. This feeling went away with rest, but it reminded me to remember my limitations. My doctor is great! She is very optimistic, and realistic about what will work best to prolong this pregnancy as long as is necessary.
stats today: heart rate:152
approx length: 9 inches
approx weight: 14 ounces
mommy weights..well that is my secret, but I have only gained 5 pounds! (I know the picture at the top doesn’t look that way!)
Thank you all for praying for JJ (still no name..we are working on it) and please continue to pray for us!
