Fruit of the Womb

Do you see these chubby cheeks?

That's my baby 

After a good, long look at Baby's heart, we found out- yes, it's irregular, no it's nothing to worry about. She said that it should auto correct itself before birth, and that we don't need to make any changes to our birth plan and can expect a nice, healthy baby [girl? boy?] in March :] 

I can't tell you how thrilling it was to see our little baby hiccuping away, yawning, and routing around [a lot! this baby's gonna have me nursing non-stop!] while we checked it's heart. I swear the technician said girl multiple times, but Eamon's hell bent that she said boy, so [even though I caught both of us squinting when she looked at his/her belly button and feet] we still have two more months to find out if this little squirt is a Rhys [or Sean] or a Norah. I'm glad we didn't find out, the anticipation is such a big part of labor for me!

While we were prepared to see a specialist after this if anything was wrong, and to change our birth plan, and to ready ourselves for whatever this Baby's needs may be, I cannot express how overjoyed I am that the Lord not only heard our [and your!] prayers, but answered them in a way that has comforted us so much! 

 Hosea 14:8
"..I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you.
I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me."

Praise God for His fruit!!!

I want to especially thank my birth team- Angela, Ann, and Leila, Keri, Morgan, Michelle, Katie, Esther, and Whittney for walking me through this since last Friday. You ladies have been so encouraging and loving. So incredibly blessed to have you supporting me!
