14 Weeks and Growing!




I will be 15 weeks this Friday. I can't believe how fast the weeks are just flying by! I am already in my 2nd trimester and I see why women love the 2nd trimester. I feel really good and people are starting to notice my pregnant belly. Plans for the baby's room are underway. We plan on renovating our bathroom next week. Will post pictures of that when it's finished. Our shrimp is now the size of a lemon. Greg is starting to get really excited since I've started showing. It's becoming more of a reality for both of us! We are reading up on how to become good parents....just like the ones we have! We have really enjoyed bonding with our little one by reading him or her a psalm and a proverb every day. My next appointment is in 2 weeks and will give you updates on how it goes. Thanks for all the prayers and support! And remember...when life hands you a lemon...make some lemonade!

Heart Beat


I had my 12 week check up this week. I was able to hear the baby's heart beat for the first time--it was so exciting! The heart rate was in the 160's. I have read that the baby is the size of a medium shrimp. Now that basketball season has come to an end, Greg and I are excited to start making plans for the shrimp's arrival.
