OUR BABY IS...............

A ............SURPRISE!!!! I guess that you will just have to wait and see as well. McCaden was the only one we tried finding out with. Camden was pretty dang obvious and Kaidence we left as a surprise and she has been full of them ever since. We are just hoping this one will be a surprise only in the beginning.

I was nervous as today approached. They took some extra good looks at the heart. So far everything with her looks good (knocking on wood). The baby is a great size for where it should be and my progesterone shots so far seem to be doing their job and keeping preterm labor away. My migraines have finally tapered off, that is a blessing in itself.....I can function again!!! We go for our fetal echo on the 11th of this month, I know that I will be nervous all over again. Kaidence's cardiologist said that sometimes cardiomyopathy can be diagnosed on ultrasound and other times it doesn't show up for awhile or even years. However, we are all still banking on the fact that she only became ill because of the stomach virus. We are just playing it safe.

Better go. We still have much cleaning up to do. Our basement flooded this weekend. Who would have thought that 2 hours of having the toilet tank filling over would cause so much of a mess and make it into so many different rooms. Kinda sad, I had to throw away a lot of pictures from high school and other things. I guess that flooding is one quick way to dejunk!

Hey, I am so glad that today went well! I remember how nervous I was for Claire's fetal echo. We actually go in tomorrow because Dr. E thought she wanted to check after she was born too. Ellie's cardiomyopathy was due to her CHD though and Claire so far has no sign of a murmur. But it's still scary to wonder what else could cause it.
I am so sorry about the flood! If you need any help, just holler.

We know how that feels! except it was our upstairs toilet and we had to have our insurance company come and bring professionals for the clean up! It took weeks! And only for a 3 hour flood! We are praying for you and your baby! And of course Kaidence!

Thanks for the update, I sure have been thinking of you. I remember once when you were pregnant with...your second(?)that you had cravings for Wendy's and I went with you to get their chili. Aaaa...memories.

Glad everything is going well for you and your little babe!
