May 19th, 2011

Today I had the privilege of seeing baby #6 today. I found myself quite nervous over the whole thing. I didn't know what my Dr. would say as he had told us we should maybe be done after our last pregnancy. However, he was great. Kind, friendly, and thoughtful encouraging. I know it will still be a risky pregnancy, but I do feel good having a good physician looking out for me.
We were able to see our little peanut today. We have an official due date of January 7th,2012. Although we will most likely not even see that date (my Dr. talked more like before Christmas or maybe after if my body behaves!), I am so grateful to have a good idea of how this baby is growing. We also were able to see a great heartbeat of 131 bpm at 6 weeks 5 days. That was so relieving to see the little heart beating. It also made is seem all the more real. I saw the little life God is knitting together in my womb~ alive and well as of today. It makes me get a little more excited about adding #6 to our family. The kids are thrilled and were happy to hear our baby is doing well right now. I am anxious to see what is next. I go back in for a recheck in two weeks. Lord willing, our precious baby will be doing well at that visit and we will see him or her growing well!
