2nd Ultrasound

Ok, I know I've been a bad blogger lately! My morning sickness has been pretty yucky and I've had a lot of prof. sessions lately to proof (not complaining about that!). Anyways, here's the picture from our last ultrasound. I put 2nd, but it was actually the 3rd. The ER ultrasound doesn't count because we didn't get a picture from it.

We were able to see the heartbeat...yay! And everything else looked great...I'm measuring right on schedule and my due date is June 5th putting me at 7w6d today. My doctor said to go ahead and plan on another May baby since Ella was a week early. We get to go back next Wednesday for another ultrasound just to make sure everything is progressing properly. The ER tech. told me that she didn't see evidence of a bicornate uterus (which was a big cause of worry for me with Ella) when she did my ultrasound, but they confirmed it again at my doctor's office. So please pray for another full-term delivery and that Baby Dos turns into the head down position so I'll be able to avoid a c-section. For anyone who doesn't know, a bicornate uterus means my uterus is shaped like a heart instead of a pear causing less room for the baby. Almost always, this means pre-term delivery. And, if you do go full-term, the baby doesn't always turn because of lack of room so a c-section is performed. God is so good and Ella was born at 39 weeks in the head down position which is a great indicator that this pregnancy will go just as long.

So anyways, everything is progressing just as it should! Thank you so much for all of your prayers...we have certainly felt and appreciated them!

Now wouldn't it be something if you delivered this baby near Katelyn's birthday (May 24) and both of our children would share birthdays! We could just plan their parties together and not have to worry about photography!! :) Heehee!

That would be something! Except then we wouldn't have a photographer at all because neither of us would want to take pictures! We would have to get DiAnna in on it! :-)
