Ultrasound

Thank you for your prayers.
We had the ultrasound this morning, and I walked in there feeling like everything was going to be okay...yesterday, I was sure I was going to have a breakdown. The baby is doing awesome, very wiggley and has a strong heartbeat of 174. They etimated my due date to be November 18th, but that can change as the baby gets bigger, we estimated the 14th, so we aren't far off.
We are a little excited but need to get past 13 weeks. I have about 2-3 weeks left of taking Prometrium, which is getting to be EXPENSIVE when your insurance hasn't kicked in yet.

Congrats. Prayers really do work. We will continue to pray for you and your little bean inside of you. Are they going to do more ultrasounds on you this time or just the regular?

Yay baby! That was Cosette's due date. I'm not exactly sure how old you are so I'll give a couple of fun facts: If you are 29 or 33 the Chinese Lunar Calendar says it will be a boy. If you are 28, 30, 31, or 32 it will be a girl. It was correct for Kaisa and I this last time. Sorry if I totally guessed your age wrong. I just know you are older than Rocia.

Betsie,
i probably won't have another ultrasound until 18-20 weeks. Regular for me is quite often, so i would say...regular for everyone else's pregnancies.

Arah said...

Raquel,
the chinese calendar worked on both my girls. I am 30, but I really feel like this one is a boy.

I am so glad that the U/S went so well and that you have a wiggly little lima bean to watch grow! Heavenly Father is watching out for you, and he is blessing you with peace at this time. :)

Somedays I think it really sucks to be so far away. OK--everyday, just some days more than others. Wish I could give you a hug for reals. Love you!!!
