15 weeks

Posted by Stephanie on 9:52 PM

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!

Wow.. 15 weeks already! So cool!

I can sort of judge how far we've been in Costa Rica with how far along you are.. you're email telling us you were pregnant was the last one I got in the states.. literally seconds before we flew out. :)

Thanks for updating! I love to hear how your pregnancy journey is going. Can't wait to hear the outcome of the ultrasound! So special that David could be there when you heard the heartbeat for the first time.

However, remember this advice: Do not make the topic too broad;
for example, if you decide to write about global
warming, don't try to discuss each and every aspect of global warming, which would turn your paper into a book, but, instead, choose a focus this manageable and, therefore, can be discussed adequately in a student paper. If this is the case, take advantage of each glassful by making drinks enriched with powdered milk, yogurt or honey. However, it's also easy to lose weight, even if the process itself can be slow.

Bed bugs are generally a particularly hard insect to be able to get rid
of. You should also check the bed for any spots of blood from
them biting the people that sleep in the bed.

Pesticides on the other hand are not the
proper bed bugs killers or repellents for sleeping areas.

I do not leave many remarks, but i did some searching and wound up here "15 weeks".
And I do have a couple of questions for you if you
don't mind. Could it be simply me or does it seem like a few of the remarks come across as if they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other sites, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have to
post. Would you list of the complete urls of your
communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

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.
