To Baby #4

“For YOU created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful I know that full well.” Psalm 139: 13-14

On Monday, April 12, I had the joy of hearing your heartbeat for the first time! What a wonderful sound that was. . .it brought a smile to my face :) The doctor thought my belly felt like 16-18wks instead of 12-13. . .so today we got to peek at you! Crown to rump measuring 6.27 cm and heartrate 162 both daysHead on the left and little arm by your tummy. . .Your tiny arms, legs and body were moving a lot! The ultrasound room was full with your big sister, brothers, daddy and I looking at you!

As I walked into the hospital for that first ob appt, I suddenly felt nervous and the pregnancy felt very "real." A calm came over me as I saw a picture of a newborn baby in a waiting room magazine :) And then, as I anxiously waited for the doctor to come in, I prayed for you. . .I prayed for a good heartbeat. I am getting very excited to start feeling you move and for October to come. . .as are your siblings! Trey says "baby" many times a day and you are already getting loved on, hugged, crawled over, talked to, stepped on, fought over, and loved on some more. You will be fed. . .

And snuggled. . .But for now, I'm just enjoying tiny little you, growing inside of me! And I'm reminded you're there, by the pukin in the mornin, the nappin in the afternoon and the hard bump on my belly! Broke out the drawstring pants and maternity tshirt :)

So sweet! My guess is girl, Callie's heartrate was 165 at our first ultrasound and stayed around that range the whole pregnancy, the boys were slower:) So excited to meet(in blog world) baby #4(unless you guys make that trip to Ames sometime:)
