Baby Bean

So we are so excited to announce the great news.  We are expecting another baby :)  YEA!  It happened way quicker than we thought and we feel so very blessed.  Both times with Mamie and Burke it took us a while and with this little bean it happened just like that.   :)

I am 9 weeks this week making me due March 19th 2013.  We believe this little blessing was conceived right around Mamie's birthday.  How cool is that!

I haven't been feeling great I will admit.  I have been really tired, nauseated and super emotional.  I know my hormones are all jacked up right now but they have also taken me off of my lexapro which I started taking about 2 years ago.  I know I need to do what is best for baby bean but man is it hard.  I cry at everything and I am freaking out about this baby.  I have nightmares all the time that I am miscarrying.  I know it has to do with what I do on a daily basis with Mamie's Poppy Plates.   I just know too much.  I deal with mom's and dad's every day that lose their sweet baby and it just makes this process a little hard for me.  I have been doing LOTS of praying and I know God will calm my heart.  I just need to trust and believe.  I need to let go on the fact that Lexapro was in my life and lean on Him for He is way more powerful than anything I can take.

We went to the doctor this Tuesday.  They have a new ultrasound room that I can go to and they even took us in a different direction from the ultrasound room where we found out Mamie had died.  As we walked back I felt a huge knot in my stomach form and I couldn't hold back the tears.  I was so scared.  I am so thankful for Taylor.  What an amazing man he is.  He put his arm around me and I knew no matter what it was all going to be okay.  It felt like forever before she put the wand on my belly.  And then she said, "Look at that beautiful little heartbeat."  All my anxiousness disappeared. Taylor and I just sat there looking at our beautiful little bean wiggling around in my belly.  It kept kicking it's tiny legs and pulling its hands up by its face.  HOW AMAZING!  For people to say that isn't life!  WOW!

My check up went great and now we are on our way to baby number 3.  I can't believe this is my third pregnancy.  I feel it already.  Yes my belly is already poking out.  Britney said the other day, "Sarah you are going to have to start telling people you are pregnant because you are already showing."

God is so good and I know He will have His hand on this pregnancy just like He did with the other two.

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…

Burke is 3!!!!!

Okay I have decided that time is going by way too fast.  Burke just turned 3 the beginning of June!  I can not believe it.  I feel like just yesterday I was in the hospital having the little guy!  We had a fun small family party and he is loving some super hero's right now so that was the theme :)  Silas really wanted to jump out when he walked in and yell surprise so that is what we did :)  Burke is super shy and he really wasn't a fan of it all.  Pibby and Pops got him his first bike and it is SO cute.   I picked up a balloon for all the kids and one special spider man one for Boo.  He has always loved balloons.  He said the sweetest thing....... he wanted to let his balloons go up to Mamie so she would know that it was his birthday.  I couldn't believe he let his special Spider Man one go.  It made me want to cry.  She should be here with us.  ANYWAYS, it was a fun day and I got some pictures of course and a few videos.  Happy 3rd Birthday Burkie BOO!  We love you so so…


Burke and Winnie just finished their first Vacation Bible School and they had a blast.  I did as well :)  I got to help in Burkes class which is always really interesting.  There were about 20 3yr olds in there so it was WILD :)  It was a fun 3 days of learning about how God is our light.  We sang "This little light of mine" everyday and Winnie is trying so hard to sing it.  She walks around the house with her little pointer finger up mumbling.  I love it.
