22 week check up

We had a good check up at the OB doctor yesterday. My blood pressure is still doing good. It took awhile for the ultrasound technician to view what they needed to see. Abigail had her hands by her face and her legs were even up by her head too. She was doing some Pilates in my belly! I always enjoy it when we get to hear her heartbeat. I didn't tear up this time but I was smiling from ear to ear when I heard it. For a second we were able to see her face and we even saw Abigail open her mouth. What an amazing sight! The pictures we got still weren't very clear. The best shots we got were of one leg and one of her face. Her head was right under my belly button so there were alot of shadows on the pictures. The only thing the technician didn't get to see was her belly (the cord) because of how Abigail had her legs positioned. I have to go back in two weeks for another ultrasound so they can see the umbilical cord. Thank you God for a good check up! Thank you all for your prayers. Please keep us there. We boldly ask God for one more day. Until next time...God is good! All the time!

Our mini-vacation

We had a good time at the Sandbridge Beach condo over the weekend. Angie, the kids and I arrived Thursday afternoon and Mark and Jeremy arrived Friday shortly after lunch. It was a nice and relaxing few days. The waves were rough and the Great Dismal Swamp fires kept us from going out on Saturday but we still had a good time. I can't wait to go back in 9 weeks! Enjoy the pictures. Please pray for my pastor. He was hit in the face with a softball Thursday night and has a broken jaw. He had surgery Friday evening and had 2 titanium plates put in his jaw/chin area. The doctor said that everything went well, but he wants Preacher to take a week off from preaching. The doctor said that he should be able to preach next Sunday and to play softball in 6 weeks. He will have to refrain from eating solid foods for 6 weeks also. Preacher goes back this week for a check-up and it is possible that his mouth will have to be wired shut. Preacher of course is in pain, but in good spirits. He is able to talk, but again it is somewhat painful. Please pray that his mouth will not be wired shut and that he will heal quickly and completely. Thank you for your prayers! I will put an update up tomorrow since I go for an ultrasound tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully Abigail will allow us to get good pictures this time. Keep us in your prayers. We boldly ask God for one more day. Until next time....God is good! All the time!

Mark and I are taking a mini-vacation to the Sandbridge condo this weekend. We invited Angie, Jeremy and the kids to come along. It's much needed time away! The condo is very nice and it's right at the ocean. Please pray that Angie gets a good report at her doctor's appointment tomorrow so they will still be able to come. We planned this trip a couple months ago and are really looking forward to it. I've attached some pictures of trips from the past. We had a blast! Until next time....We boldly ask God for one more day. God is good! All the time!

We're having a .........

Girl! We are definitely excited. The baby and I are doing fine. Thank you God! She was moving around but mainly showed us her back. The ultrasound pictures didn't turn out so good but we were still able to determine that we're having a girl. I'll have to go back in two weeks to have another ultrasound so they can get the measurements they want. We now need to determine what Abigail's middle name will be. Thank you all for your prayers. Please keep us there. We boldly ask God for one more day. Until next time...God is good! All the time!
