Expecting....


baby number 4 coming {sometime around} Feb. 7, 2010

**
excited, nervous, bewildered, happy, wondering what we were thinking, hoping for a girl-expecting a boy {more than happy for either}, grateful, anxious, most-likely our last so trying to enjoy every second, anticipating, waiting


FYI: This little miracle, like everything else this summer, has not come easy. The morning sickness was the worst I've experienced - ever. But more than that, we weren't sure if the baby was going to make it this far. At nine weeks the doctors informed me the placenta wasn't attaching. At the time of ultrasound it was actively bleeding - not a good thing. A week later the bleeding was slowing and I was put on lifting restrictions and told to "rest". With all the craziness of the summer that was a tough order. I'm 15 weeks now and just had another ultrasound - didn't check the placenta again because it was just a quick ("off the record") ultrasound to give me reassurance, but heartbeat is strong and baby is active. I'll have a more indepth ultrasound next week to see if miscarriage risk is gone. Hopefully so.

Oh, and ps, how come your pictures look sooooo good, what kind of camera do you have? You're probably just a talented photog! Hope you're liking Idaho!
