13 Week Check Up

This week Taylor and I went in for our 13 week check up.  They found in ultrasound about a month ago that I had a small subchorionic hematoma which they said is very common and usually happens during implantation.  It bought me another ultrasound at this visit which we were both very excited about.

I haven't been feeling great this first trimester.  It reminds me a lot of how I felt with Mamie.  I am trying not to get it in my head that this little bean could be a girl.  We really don't care either way.  Boy/Girl we just want a healthy baby.

My nerves have been on edge more than ever lately.  Like I said in earlier post.  They have taken me off my lexapro.  It was extremely hard but I feel I have evened out now which is good.  But back to my nerves.... I just keep thinking something is wrong with this baby or that I am going to miscarry.  Taylor has been such a great husband trying to calm my fears.  He keeps telling me to lean on the Lord and keep my faith.  I feel like I am....I just think I might know too much now with what I do with Mamie's Poppy Plates.  But I also feel like what if what I am feeling is that mothers instant that we have?  We are past the first trimester which is good and the statistics of miscarrying go down but as a mother that has lost a child I know you are NEVER safe!

Seeing our little bean on Tuesday did calm my heart.  We didn't get to find out the sex so I have to keep calling the baby an it or baby bean:(  It was moving it little hands around by it's face.  Baby bean is very active and was doing some crazy kicks which could explain why I have been feeling so sick ;)

We are heading out for our vacation on Friday.  Taylor and I will be celebrating our 8 year wedding anniversary this Sunday and we will be down in Florida where we were suppose to get married those many years ago.  I say suppose to .... for those of you that don't know Taylor and I planned a small family beach wedding in Sea Grove, Florida back in 2004.  2 days before the wedding we were evacuated because Hurricane Ivan was going to be making landfall pretty much on our wedding day.  It was so crazy but gave us a fun story to tell.  We would have gone ahead and gotten married but non of the men were there including my husband to be or my dress.  Yall the sky was crazy and the waves were huge.  It would have made for such a cool and dramatic background.  Anyway, we drove back to LR and got married out at my Aunt and Uncles house and it was amazing!  It kills me when people are so stuck on having that perfect wedding.  Things happen and really the only thing that matters is that you get married to that person you said "Yes" to spending the rest of your life with.  I would have married Taylor in the basement of that house if I had too.  :)

Okay enough talking.  We are excited about a week at the beach. (notice I didn't say relaxing :)  Burkie Boo is with us and I can't wait to see him in the sand.  It could be very interesting :)

I will report back sometime this week :)

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…

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 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.
