27 Weeks

I am 27 weeks today which means I am in my 3rd trimester and I have 91 days to go!  YEA!!!!!  We had a great Easter weekend.  Taylor was off on Friday so we headed over to the lake to stay at Annie and Alan's place.  Thursday night there were some really bad storms.  Brit called to tell us the tornado's were headed straight for us.  I am not that scared of storms but I was this time.  We were staying in a trailor on Lake Ouchita.  Yall I can't tell you how freaked out I was.  My body was so tense Mamie was totally kicking around in there.  She had to have known something was going on.  The electricity went out and it was SO dark.  We decided to make a run for the storm shelter that had 2 ft of nasty water in the bottom.  I didn't care as long as we were safe.  I was not about to sit in that tin can while a tornado headed for us.  The storm made a turn right before it got to where we were which was a blessing.  All I could say over and over was "Thank you, Thank you, Lord for keeping us safe".  Dustin and Ashley came over the next morning.  We had planned on renting a boat but it was cloudy and really cold.  We decided to hit the races instead.  We had a great time and lost all of our money :)  Saturday morning we headed back to LR and met Mom, Dad, Jason, Brit and Silas at Trinity Methodist for the egg hunt.  Silas was so cute.  He wasn't too sure about it all.  He pretty much just kicked the eggs around on the ground.  Britney and I ran around afterwards to look for stuff for Mamie's room.  Still trying to decide on a bed.  The one I wanted is not going to be made in time and truthfully I don't want to be one of the first to try this bed out.  We found some great fabric for the window treatments and a chandelier and rug that I need to order.  I can't wait to get it all put together so I can show you guys.  Sunday we headed to church and then over to Mom and Dads for Easter lunch.  We all stuffed ourselves, then sat in the den playing with Silas and watching the Masters.  Mamie, your daddy LOVES some golf!

So anyway, back to me being 27 weeks.  I am feeling good.  Having a few back pains here and there but I think that is just part of it.  :)  Heading back to the doctor this Wednesday for more glucose test.  WHOOOHOOO!!!  I will keep you all posted.

Hello, Sarah!

This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle

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

Peekaboo Article in NWA

Peekaboo magazine did an story on our loss with Mamie and how I came up with Mamie's Poppy Plates. I wanted to share it all with you. 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
