A little LT update for all my family and friends. We are now 11 weeks into our pregnancy. It has been a roller-coaster last few weeks though. We have made a couple extra trips to the doctor because of some bleeding that Heather has had. So, on March 12th the good doctor told Heather to be on bed rest for 2 weeks. While we were not excited about the news, we are doing anything we can to protect the baby and let LT grow and mature. Heather’s mom, Peggie, has been here since the 18th and has kept Heather company, while I’ve been gone at work and school. (She’s also done laundry, dishes, and cleaned the house as well!) We go back to the doctor on Wednesday afternoon (25th) and hopefully we can get back to “normal pregnancy” life. If not, well we will make adjust accordingly.
Now, for the fun stuff. Because of the complications, we have gotten to see LT a couple of times. We posted pictures on facebook, so you can check them out there. We also got to hear the heartbeat, 172 beats per minute! There is something about hearing the heartbeat that makes it more real! Peggie got us a baby doll so that we can have a baby to hold, coo, and comfort when it cries, so Beau will get used to the strange noises. So far, the baby still has all its limbs. It’s hard to believe we are almost through the first trimester! I hear the 2nd one is the easiest, but of course I’m not the one who has a living being inside of me.
Finally, we have some new websites for you to check out. If you click on the banner below, you can enter our baby pool. There is no prize just fun. Family and friends are welcome to take a shot. October 12th is our due date. Have fun. You can also click here for our pregnancy page. It will host the latest pictures and updates as well.
