15 weeks today!

Today this little miracle is 15 weeks!!!!  Wow, how amazing is that!  What a blessing!  Now we need this precious little one to keep growing at least until it is as old as baby Nels was if not a few weeks older... which would be nice!

We have 3 weeks left of our think pink campaign and then we will know for sure if the baby is a girl.  This would be a huge relief to me as I just read something on my ultrasound report that concerned me.  

My doctor didn't bring it up but it appears my placenta is Anterior.  What this means is that the placenta is on the top of the uterus towards the abdominal wall... kind of like the baby implanted up instead of towards the back which is more common.  So why does this concern me.  For one reason and one reason only... it makes it nearly impossible to do any kind of neonatal surgery if needed.  I am praying that this baby is completely healthy and happy and will not have the problems baby Nels had... but it does make me a bit concerned.

I know that God is in control.  I know that God works all things for good according to his glory.  I just pray that He is making this special little one healthy with all the parts growing right.  3 weeks and 1 day until my next ultrasound.  It seems so far away... but at least the house packing should keep me busy and my mind occupied for the next three weeks.  Only one week after that and we will be out of our home.  Such a busy time!

Chris has two weddings that the is in in July as well.  1 is a couple days after the ultrasound and one the day before we are closing our house.  He is going to be busy packing soon.  I think we need to get one of those pod things. 

Lord God, I thank you for the blessing of having this precious miracle be 15 weeks today.  Lord bless this child and protect it as it grows.  Lord please keep all it's parts growing correctly and happy and healthy.  Lord lead and guide our steps as we prepare to move and keep us ever focused on you and your will for our lives.  In Jesus name, amen!


  1. Don't worry about the position of your uterus at this is still "traveling" so to say. And, we did taps and infusion through my placenta MANY times...very doable if you have a good doctor! Remember, you don't NEED just need lungs to develop! Infusions and steroids do that easy! But why worry...your little miracle is doing great! I believe if something were going to show up, it would have, at least a severe blockage. Matthew's showed up on ultrasound at 11 weeks even...just an anomoly that they wanted me to get checked again at 16 weeks. Your's is behaving. :) Still praying!

  2. Still thinking pink with you. I love the picture - you are looking great - a face next time too - hee hee. I am so sorry you have had another stress, but hope that will all be drawn to a close when you go for your next scan. Praise God for all he is doing in your life. I hope the packing is not too stressful. What is the pod thing you wrote about? God bless.

  3. The Pod is a box that we can order that is dropped off by a truck then we load it up and then they take it to storage until we get a house. It is really kind of a good thing. :)
