Wonderful News about our sweet Mamie!

Taylor and I met with the specialist for our ultrasound this morning. I was surprisingly calm. Taylor was a little on the edgy side which really caught me off guard. He has been so calm and reassuring since the beginning of this. Dr. Chatelain is such a nice doctor and totally made us feel comfortable. He first checked Mamie's brain and we were so happy when he told us that the chorid plexus cyst had disappeared. Everything looks great with her little brain. He proceeded to check every little inch of her body and she received and A+. Ya'll I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me. We thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. God has been so good to us. Sorry I am a little late on posting. The day kind of got away from me :). All of you that have emailed and called today. WOW! I can't tell you how much that means to us. We are so blessed to have such caring friends. -Sarah

Can't Sleep

Well it is now 11:10pm and I am usually way asleep by now. Not
tonight! I don't know what my deal is but I am WIDE awake. I have
been sitting here propped up with my AMAZING U shaped pillow that
Taylor got me from Relax The Back trying to figure out my new online
gallery for the past ah................4 or so hours. WOW I just
counted that up. Man that is crazy. Mamie has been kicking way. I
am glad to know that I am not the only one not able to sleep right
now. So just a minute ago I shuffled around a bit and changed my
position. Well that made Taylor, who has been dead asleep for the
past 2 hours shuffle around a bit as well. While scratching his arm
he whispered in this soft voice "Idiot," (pause.......) "dog
shit"..................... ah yeah I could not stop laughing. Who is
he talking to? And this totally reminded me that this talking in his
sleep thing has been happening a lot lately. I just haven't been able
to remember …

19 Weeks

I am a little behind on posting since I was in Vegas all last week for a photography convention. What a crazy week I must say. There were a ton of photographers from all over the world. 7 of us from the Love Affair workshop met up and spent the week together. It was so great to see all of them. Taylor took me to the airport Sunday morning around 5:30. Which means I woke up to get ready around 4am. Yea! I am so not a morning person so this totally sucked. But I wanted to get to Vegas early to meet up with girls. So, I rushed through the airport and I was there just in time to load the plane. Perfect right, well not really. Everyone was still standing around and we were soon told that there was something wrong with the plane and we would be delayed till 9:30 which would make me miss my flight in Houston AHHHHHHHHHHH! So I sat there for 4 hours and read some magazines and played on the computer. What an awful way to start my trip. I was already so tired. When we started …

18 Weeks

I am 18 weeks today and feeling good.  We had a really nice weekend.  Friday I went to see Dr. Lei and I plan on seeing her ever week for a while.  She said my circulation was not very good and so she is working on that and my stress level.  I feel very calm right now and am not letting myself worry about this cyst.  It is all going to be okay.  I thought I felt Mamie moving around when I was laying on the table with needles stuck all in me but I am really not sure.  I hope to feel her soon if not.  I know she is moving around in there.  She has always been kicking around in my ultra sounds. :)  
I ordered her bedding on Friday and can't wait to get started on the nursery.  I am hoping Karen (aka Mimi) will help me with the drawing of the tree and birds on the wall :)  I haven't asked her yet but she is an amazing artist.  
We have had tons of people commenting on how much they love our name.  So many people know or have family with the name Mamie.  I think that is so cool.  I a…

Thank You!

Taylor and I wanted to thank you all for your emails and calls
yesterday and today. We did some research yesterday and talked to a
few doctors and we are very hopeful that Mamie will be okay. It seems
like this is very common and almost all of the babies that we read
about are just fine. I am at peace with all of this news and I truly
believe that all is going to be okay. Yesterday was for sure a hard
day but I can't tell you how much that means to us getting all of your
words of encouragement. Thank you thank you!

Our Appointment

Hey Guys,
Well we just got out of our appointment. We had an ultrasound
first thing and Mamie waved at us a couple of times. I woke up
feeling not so well this morning and thought I might loose it in the
ultrasound. But all was okay. :) She is right at the weight she
should be right now which is 7 oz.After we finished with the ultrasound we meet with Dr. Sellers. I
really love having him as my doctor. He is so calm and doesn't make
us feel rushed or anything. He told us that I have a low lying
placenta which he hopes it will float up when I get bigger. If not I
will have to have a c-section. He also told us that Mamie has a cyst
on her brain..... he said he is not going to get all worried right
now. We scheduled an appointment with a specialist for Feb. 26th. He
wants to wait till I am 20 weeks and hopefully she will have absorbed
the cyst, then there will be nothing for us to worry about. It has
been a pretty hard morning for us. We are just so worrie…

17 Weeks

I am 17 weeks today.  I know I probably say this every week but I can't believe how the weeks are flying by.  I have my big doctors appointment on Thursday.  I will have a 30min ultra sound and then I will see my doctor.  I can't wait to see our little Mamie again kicking around in there.  
Here is what she is doing this week - Sarah
How your baby's growing:Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.

Mamie's Nursery

So I think we found the bedding for Mamie's nursery. I LOVE it so
much. As soon as I saw it I knew that was what we had to get. It
reminds me of when I was growing up. :) I think it is going to be so
sweet.Now the walls are going to be a soft pink. Not this terrible harsh
yellow. We will have a white bed skirt, white crib and my old
changing table that I hope to get refinished to an antique white. Mom
has an old wooden rocking chair that I am going to also have a pillow
made for it and put it in the nursery. Behind the crib Britney and I
are going to draw a big tree and have a few little birds sitting on
the limbs. AH I can't wait. I think it is going to be so sweet. As
soon as we start putting it together I will take some pics and put
them on the blog for you all to see.
