We had our big ultrasound the other week and I have been meaning to update you all. Sorry for the delay. First off I did pass my glucose test which is great news. To celebrate Taylor bought me a big snickers :) ha! just what I needed after drinking pure sugar water all morning on an empty stomach. I did have a total melt down at Cornerstone that morning. After drinking the sugar water I figured Burke would be bouncing around in my belly. I couldn't get him to move at all. I can't even begin to tell you all how scared I was. I rushed back to my nurse in tears begging for them to get the doppler out. Within seconds I was on the table as they rubbed the doppler across by belly. I was a total wreck. I just keep thinking in my head "I have lost another baby!" The nurse quickly found his heartbeat and everything looked and sounded great. I was SO relieved but couldn't pull it together. I wanted to curl up in a ball and cry my heart out. Why? Why did I have to go through all of this? I finally calmed down and went back to the waiting room to finish my testing. I think I totally freaked Taylor out when I called him. I told him that morning there was no need to come and sit for 3 hours with me but the last time I said that was the day I went in and they couldn't find Mamie's heartbeat.
After leaving Cornerstone I headed to Freeway to meet Taylor for my big ultrasound. I was nervous but Taylor has a special way of keeping me calm. He is my rock. The ultrasound went really well. The cyst on Burke's brain is gone! Isn't that awesome news! His kidney's are still a little dilated but nothing the doctor seemed too concerned about. He said Burke might have to take an antibiotic when he is born which is wonderful news. Praise God! Below are some pictures we got from his ultrasound. Sweet baby boy is growing and we can't wait to meet him.
