11 weeks, 4 days

Today I had an appointment with Dr. Patterson. Had to do the whole pap, cervical cultures, and breast exam ~ fun... But what was FUN was we got to hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time! We have already been able to see it on ultrasound, but hearing it just melts my heart :)

My next appt is in 4 weeks and they already scheduled my "big" ultrasound for 6 weeks from now ~ so ~ on June 10 we might be able to find out pink or blue! Of course, we are getting the more detailed sono due to having already had a baby with a heart defect and cystic hygroma ~ they want to check and make sure this baby is healthy.

I know everything will be fine ~ God knows my strength and I think he's pushed me to my limit :)

I will keep you all posted as things progress!

Race For The Cure

Saturday Aidan and I participated in The Race For The Cure down at Indian Springs Park. We joined the team from my work and we all had a pretty good time! Our team name was GYNuinely PINK!!! The rain held off until we were done, thank goodness! It was still kinda drizzly and very overcast, but no pouring down rain! We had to be there at 6:30 am to take our team picture and then the race started at 8:00 am. We did the 1 mile walk - well Aidan ran the whole thing - and was waiting for me at the finish line! HAHA! How did he become athletic??? We had fun and we were so glad we had participated! Aidan says next year he wants to run the timed 5K - have fun Boo~Boo!

Praying For Bentley

Please, please, please go to Crystal's blog and start praying for her sweet baby girl. She was diagnosed with a Congenital Heart Defect at 2 days old and is getting close to having heart surgery in May. Her story tugs at my heart because of what we went thru with Alex. I have promised to become a prayer warrior for her daughter Bentley and I want all of you too also.

Please also keep Miss Emersyn in your prayers as well. She has been diagnosed with stage 4 reflux in her bladder and ureters, which is causing her urine to back up into one of her kidneys. Misti found out yesterday that she will definately have to have surgery after she turns 1, providing that she doesn't get another UTI before then. She has been put on an antibiotic that she has to take everyday indefinately. Please just lift Emersyn up and pray that God will heal her and pray for strength and comfort for Misti and Josh.
