Gender Reveal

Today I got to have my 18 week Sonogram. Everything looked great! My placenta is a tiny bit low, but not of concern. However, because of it I get to have another sono next month!! Woohoo! Here are a few pictures of our sweet Filipino baby!!

Gender Reveal!

Definitely wasn't afraid to show his stuff!

13 Week OB Appt

This week I had my OB appointment. I was pretty nervous because I had had some bleeding and of course had to fight fear of the worst! However my fears were quickly relieved when my OB not only found the heart beat, but kept having to move the Doppler because the baby was so active moving all around! It is finally feeling real and like I can start to get more excited! I also got to make my sonogram appt which will be June 13th!!! Can't wait to find out who this little one is!!! And....praise The Lord.... I am starting to feel better!! After weeks of extreme nausea I wondered if I would ever feel better, I still have my rough times and days, but at least I'm having more and more good days!!

Easter Sunday

Today is a great day! A day we celebrate and remember the amazing sacrifice and the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ!!

Also, today I'm 10 weeks!!! I'm starting to feel better and NO MORE SHOTS!! I'm a little nervous, but super excited to not have to stick giant needles in my back side every night any more! Woo Hoo!!!

I'll have to take a picture soon, because I have quite the belly going on already! I guess after 4 previous pregnancies, my body know just what shape to go into, that and my abs never went back together after my first baby...

8 weeks till I get another ultrasound and get to find out if we're having a boy or girl! It feels so far away, but I know it will go fast! Most of the kids want a girl to make it even so we'd have 3 boys and 3 girls.

It's amazing how much they grow and change in such a short amount of time!! In about 10 more weeks and we will get to find out if it's a he or she!! So far, yet so close!

Ultrasound #1

I haven't fully digested the information. I am completely happy that they found one perfect little bean! It measured 6w0d when I'm 6w4d, but the doctor said that's totally fine! He had a strong heart beat and everything looked perfect. I am honestly sad that one didn't make it, but I'm handing it over to God trusting that he knows best and rejoicing for the precious life growing inside me! Over all we made heaven a little fuller with 5 precious Filipino babies and I know they are happy and we will enjoy the one he is blessing us with on earth! We still have a long journey ahead of us with this little one so please don't stop praying!!! I will have another ultrasound in 2 weeks. Also, we still have funds that we need to pay for from all this life saving and would appreciate any donation! Thank you all for going along this journey with us! It helps more than you know!!

Beta #2

Today I went to get my blood drawn to check my hcg levels again to make sure they've doubled. Monday my number was 71 so it needed to be at least 142. The nurse called, and I asked if she had good news for me and she said "Yes! Your number is 206!!!" Praise the Lord my numbers almost tripled! I can safely say I'm pregnant!! It feels surreal to say that and almost scary! I go for an ultrasound in 2 weeks!! March 26th!! Can't wait!! Hoping to see more than one little bean with strong heart beats! Now to stay busy getting our house ready to put on the market to help the time pass! Thank you all for you prayers! Keep them coming! There is still a long road ahead of us!

1st Beta

Today I had my first beta test (HCG levels) and they were 71. I was hoping for a higher number, but the nurse said this was a solid number! I'm still having to fight a lot of fear and anxiety so I would appreciate prayers to help fight it! I'm trying to focus on Jesus and nothing else, but it's really hard. Wednesday I go back to check my levels again. They NEED to DOUBLE! Please pray they do!!! If they do then I have to order another chunk of meds. $$ Ouch, but what ever it takes to keep these babies safe! I won't know how many are in my womb until the end of the month when I have an ultra sound. Feels so far away!!!
