we're having a baby...

we have no clue!!! sorry to keep you waiting all weekend for nothing but when we went for the ultrasound on friday, our little girl or guy was quite modest and would not allow us to see whether we'll be adding a son or daughter to our clan!

ryan was pretty disappointed which i thought was kinda funny since he didn't want to find out in the first place, but i was surprisingly ok with waiting a little longer. i think i've just got so much on my mind since we're getting ready to meet mr. greer that i'm ok with finding out about baby S a little later on.

we did see a ton of change in little baby S. he/she was soooo much bigger and way more active than last time. our ultrasound tech even had a hard time getting readings of little peanut's brain and heart because of all the activity. after a lot of effort she did finally get the pictures she needed and our doctor was happy to report that every thing is on target and little peanut is growing perfectly! i was so surprised to see how in 5 weeks, his/her little arms and legs have sprouted and are getting so long. last time the little kiddo looked almost like a little gummie bear but not any more!!

we got some new pictures but they didn't really turn out very clear, so here's the only one that doesn't look like a complete blob:

our kiddo's head was resting nicely right next to my bladder, face down with his/her legs crossed and up towards my ribs. last time we couldn't see his/her spine or ribs but this time both were much more obvious.

what a miracle!! we are so thankful for our healthy little baby :) our sweet doctor is kind enough to let us come back on december 29th for another look, so hopefully we'll be able to reveal his/her gender for real at that time. thanks for hanging in here with us!!

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." - Psalm 139:13-16

That Psalm took on new meaning for me while I was pregnant too. Congrats on the healthy! :) I can't believe you guys are leaving so soon. My thoughts and prayers are with you!
