Our Baby

Yesterday we went to a perinatologist to have our BIG ultrasound. Scott & I were both so anxious. This pregnancy has gone so smoothly that we are just waiting to receive that bad news. I know it sounds terrible, but when you have lost 5 babies you just start "protecting" yourself. Anyway, we went in and met this new doctor who was wonderful by the way! As she started scanning me her nurse started asking me questions like how many pregnancies have you had, how far have you gone, how many surgeries have you had, etc. I wanted to scream at her "Stop talking to me so that I can see the heartbeat!!!" That is all I wanted to see... a healthy baby. I didn't care about the sex. I just wanted to know the gender so that I could answer every one's question "What are you having?" I don't see how you girls go the whole 9 months without knowing! Anyway, the nurse finally got out of the way and we were shown everything on our baby on a giant 60+? flat screen TV. I think Scott was most impressed by this :) She measured everything, showed us heart rate (145), fingers, toes, spine, brain activity, and finally..... asked us what our boys wanted. They both had told us they thought we were having a girl. Our dr. said siblings are usually right. Grandparents and parents were wrong, but siblings just knew. Caleb & Gavin were right! SHE was sitting criss-cross applesauce showing us she is a GIRL! We are so excited, but especially happy that she is HEALTHY! Now for finding a name. I think we have all 4 decided.....

Here are some photos we've been taking and I've failed to post:




This one was taken by my sweet Caleb while we were in Disney - 18 weeks.




And finally, I learned to scan! This is one of our sono pics from yesterday... her profile. Look above her nose. It almost looks like another face looking down at her. Maybe an angel looking down over her :)

Oh, April. I'm so excited for you guys! What an amazing gift, huh? I'm two weeks from my due date and I can still hardly believe it. I know people have babies everyday, but I guess God created babies like ours to prove that miracles do happen. My prayers to you.
