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 actually had a friend from Sunday school email today saying her husbands grandmothers name is Mamie.  We think it is going to fit her so well.  

I leave for Vegas on Sunday and I can't wait to see my photography friends and catch up.  It should be an interesting week.   I will try to blog while I am there.

So anyway, I am 18 weeks today and here is what baby center say's Mamie is up to this week.

Hello, Sarah!

Head to rump, your baby is approximately 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) and weighs almost 7 ounces. He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. If you're having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you're having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, although he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.


  1. Just wanted you to know that I am praying for sweet Mamie! I know she will be just fine and that everything will work out! She is one lucky little girl to have such sweet parents :)

  2. You know I'll do anything for you! Mamie is already a much loved little girl!

Choroid Plexus Cyst (CPC) & Hydronephrosis

I have heard from many of your wondering what exactly these markers are and what could they mean. We received an information sheet from our genetics doctor that I can't seem to upload but I found this write up and thought I would share. The Choroid Plexus and Choroid Plexus CystsThe choroid plexus is an area of the brain that makes cerebrospinal fluid. Cerebrospinal fluid is the substance that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The choroid plexus is not an area of the brain involved in thinking. Choroid plexus cysts are fluid-filled spaces in the choroid plexus kind of like blisters or bubbles. Choroid plexus cysts are not tumors or cancer, and they will disappear on their own usually between 24 to 26 weeks of pregnancy. Choroid plexus cysts, in and of themselves, are NOT a problem and do not interfere with brain function.They are seen in about 1% (1/100) of all second trimester ultrasounds. Choroid plexus cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain and the number, size…

Customized Plates

We have had many mom's contacting us wanting a plate made for their precious baby. We are excited to say this can be done. All we need is a copy of the foot prints. We are so excited that we can offer this. To purchase a custom plate you will need to click on the custom plate tab on the right hand side. You can choose and extras that would like to painted on your plate. If you decide to just have your prints transferred you will still get to choose a color for the rim of the plate. Please feel free to send us an email if you have any questions at all.
Thanks, Sarah

My good friend Meredith also has her story with Miller in the magazine so be sure to pick one up if you can. I will get her article and post it here in a couple of days. - Sarah
