I finally got around to taking my first profile pregnancy shots. Thanks to my Victoria who snapped the pics! I'm feeling really great and enjoying this pregnancy! We are all looking forward to those kicks and wiggles that everyone can begin to feel here in the next few weeks. Praise YHWH for His many blessings!

What a surprise to have an ultrasound today! First of all, we have ONE healthy growing baby! Whew!
I went in as planned to get a referral from my provider and he sent me right over to the main hospital. Thankfully David was able to drive over from his office in another town. I assured him this morning before he left for work that I wouldn't be getting an ultrasound today because I figured it would have to be scheduled. The photo to the left is a beautiful profile shot don't ya think?
This shot has our baby with the knees pulled in and head turned. We had decided not to find out the sex this time which is a first for us. The tech asked if we wanted to know and we figured if we could see anything, we would want to know but as it turned out, we never could see between those tiny legs. So it's a mystery!
Victoria, Gregory and Dalton were there in the room with us. Irelyne and Rebekah were with Nana and missed out but have enjoyed looking at the many photos we were given.
The tech spent a good 30 minutes checking all the measurements which are consistent to my EDD (estimated due date) so it seems I have a large uterus which is why I measure larger than I am. It would seem very normal since this is our s-i-x-t-h bundle!! This is my favorite picture. We watched quietly as the little blessing tried to bring the thumb to the mouth! It was quite awesome. I'm always so amazed at the miracle of life being created and formed in the womb. What an amazing God we serve! He is so worthy of all our praise.

Thank you for all the comments, prayers and checking in on us! Much love to everyone!

Our pregnancy is moving right along. As you can see from the photo I found online, by this stage in pregnancy our baby is fully developed and will now begin rapid weight gain and growth.

I'm so busy with the children and their schooling and completely exhausted by evening that I've had little time to keep up with either of my blogs. I'm feeling well for the most part. My anemia seems to be controlled at the moment with my iron supplements and I'm not needing the naps as often as I was. David is wonderful and leaves me notes each morning by my vanity. It's one of the highlights of my day. After 16 years together I'm blessed that not only do I love my husband but I am deeply in-love with him.

My Mom brought over goodies this week for the baby and I. It's been years since I've worn a baby in a sling or put on maternity clothes. It was exciting to get the goodies!!

Yesterday we went for our first official Midwife visit. We were able to hear the heartbeat. David recorded with his cell phone. We went through all the questions and answers that accompany each visit and then came time for her to check my uterus for size and baby placement. Immediately she asked if I was sure of my dates and I assured her I was. Apparently I am measuring 4 weeks larger than I am. It was suggested that I get an ultrasound to check for twins!!! You should have heard all the giggles in the room. It's been a joke between those of us that are pregnant together. So far, none are having twins, YET! I have another appointment with my Doctor to get a referral for an ultrasound. It will probably take another week or two before I have one. It's going to be a l-o-n-g wait!!

Here is my note I found this morning from my beloved:

"It was awesome yesterday to be with you and see the midwife together.  To hear our baby's heartbeat is a miracle.  The real miracle belongs to YHWH. How he took two separate hearts and made them one. I love everything about you Stephanie. We are one." ~ All my love, David

I'll post with ultrasound pics soon so check back!


Scripture and Quotes

"Children are a heritage of YHWH; the fruit of the womb is His reward. As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the children of youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. " Psalm 127:3-4

The Scriptures teach that debt is a curse and children are blessings; but in our culture, we apply for a curse and reject blessings. Something is wrong with this picture.
