25 weeks and a good report

Wooohoooo! 25 weeks along, only 15 weeks to go. In other exciting baby news, my new niece Ava was born today. I am so thrilled to have another precious niece and am so excited for Jackson and Kayla!

We went for our repeat baby echo today and the pediatric cardiologist said everything looks good! Praise the Lord. This has been a difficult time for us and a hard lesson for us all in trusting God but he is so faithful! I'm hoping our appointments with the high risk OBs are now over.

And because I'm feeling skinny today, here is a belly shot:

The newest memeber of our family to play peek-a-boo!

Baby must know his or her older brother and sister love that game! :) And is it just me or does this baby look like he/she has huge hands?

24 weeks

Yes, I'm backdating yet another post because I have not been blogging much this past week! Theo actually took this picture on time but I'm just now uploading it to the computer. I will say that even though I'm fully dressed and have make-up on, I didn't spend much of last week that way!

With the stomach virus running rampant in our house, I lost 5 pounds but I'm pretty sure I've gained most of it back already. :)

24 weeks is always a good point in pregnancy for me. I guess it's the NICU nurse in me but I know that if the baby were born right now, he or she would have a good chance of survival, albeit with a lot of problems down the road, but a good chance to live. I pray each time to go to 40 weeks, although 38 sounds good too! But I'm always thankful when I get to the 24 week mark.

Not much new except I will go for the baby's second echo on Wednesday. I'm not at all anxious about it. Carter will be in school and Theo will bring Olivia just like last time.

Well, that about sums it all up!

Side by side (by side!)

Ok, so technically, I'm 23 weeks in the last picture. But my 22 week picture was taken at 9:00 at night and I look awful :) This weeks picture was taken when I actually had make-up on!

I guess if I end up having a #4, I'll be even bigger...maybe I better stop at 3! My 22 week picture with Carter looks like my pre-pregnancy belly this time aroud!! Ha!

23 weeks

17 weeks to go! Wooohoooo!

I don't have much new to report except my weight gain! I think I've gained a couple of pounds just since last week. Theo keeps buying these delicious brownies from Whole Foods and I keep gobbling them up!

I just may end up with some stretch marks this go round. Oh well, marks of love, right? Either love or brownies. Well, brownies are love in my book :)
