... And baby makes three!

First look at our little peanut at
8 weeks! 

Second look at our babe at 11 Wks & 3 days!

Ultrasound at 18 Wks & 3 days!
Look at those cute lips & nose! 

Had a couple people over to celebrate with us
and I made a gender reveal cake!! 

Another ultrasound at 18 Wks 5 days! 

Just this past Thursday! She's getting bigger! 

How far along are you? 20 weeks and 1 day today! 

Due Date: January 11, 2014... scheduled C-section for January 6th (maybe earlier)

Size of baby right now: The size of a banana! Weighs about 10.5 ounces and is 10 inches from from head to toe!

Baby's Heartbeat: 150 at last Ultrasound

Gender: GIRL! 

Maternity Clothes: Started wearing them around 12 weeks

Stretch Marks?: I don't think any from this pregnancy, but ones that are my sweet reminder of carrying my sweet Maggie Grace for 41 weeks! 

Movement: Starting feeling this little one squirming around at 15 weeks, much earlier then I felt with Maggie Grace! 

Food Cravings: Anything sweet and I can't get enough of cantaloupe! 

Comparison to last pregnancies: This pregnancy is very similar to Maggie Grace's, my second pregnancy was the unusual one therefore we are thinking that sweet baby was a boy.

Doctor's Appointments: I love my doctor here and feel like I am in very capable hands and I am being watched very closely! We have already seen our little girl (on ultrasounds) 5 times! The only perk of being a 'high risk' pregnancy is seeing her so much! My blood pressure is normal, which is a nice change compared to my other pregnancies! I think I contribute that to prayer, being much more active this pregnancy then any of my other, and low stress! Not moving half way across the country half way through a pregnancy is SO nice! 

What am I looking forward to?: Seeing her move in my belly, JC getting to feel her move! Really just holding her and bringing her home! 

JC and I are both very excited about this unexpected blessing in our life (we weren't even going to 'try' for another baby until January!) guess God had other plans! We have both felt very good about this pregnancy from the beginning. The morning we found out we were expecting again I just laid in bed and smiled up at God like ok if this is when we are meant to have our next baby I will trust you. And since that first day I have felt God's presence and reassuring whispering that everything will be ok and to trust him, which is something I am daily working on and praying that it will get easier the further along I get! I am so excited to finally share this news with you! We wanted to wait until 20 weeks and make sure everything was looking good before we announced it online... debated waiting until we had her, but I wanted you to experience this pregnancy with me and selfishly could use all the prayers we can get! So be prepared for lots of pictures of my growing bump, baby projects, and my thoughts as I experience another wonderful miracle! 

Indeed you created my inward parts; you wove me together in my mother's womb.I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works, and my soul knows it well. 
Psalms 139:13,14

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 
Jeremiah 29:11 (my life verse)

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1
