Anatomy Scan Update!

Praise Jesus!!!  This baby is as healthy as can be!  All the measurements and organs looked great and right on track!  Baby weighs 7 ounces at 17 weeks 5 days.

And.......


it's a BOY!!!

Our ultrasound tech was so sweet....she had also had an anatomy scan which did not go well in a previous pregnancy, so she totally understood our nervousness AND she told me as she was looking at each part if it was appearing normal!  I couldn't have asked for a more understanding and kind sonographer!  Thank you God!  To top it all off, she is also pregnant with a boy and due in April!!

We are just on cloud nine and so thankful that God has allowed us to be pregnant with a healthy little boy!  I feel like now I might actually be able to sit back and really enjoy the rest of this pregnancy; allow myself to revel in the magic and wonder of it all instead of living with fear and hesitations that it might not work out. 

Baby boy was not shy about showing his parts multiple times!  I will be getting pictures from the scan up soon!  DH and I are going out for a dinner date/celebration to The Melting Pot tonight and finally we will get to start discussing some names!!

*Sigh*  What a relief!  I am just so thankful for all of your prayers!  I know that they helped :)

Jonathon (Nathan) Gerard= Gift from God.I read it in a book where some monks find an abandoned baby But any other name would make him a wonderful gift. So joyous when you sent the news. Can't wait to be an "auntie" again! How did Isabel react?

Thank you Jesus! Thank you Blessed Mother, Saints, and Angels for your intercession!

Angela-this Monday, on All Saints Day, give thanks for your very own 4 saints in heaven that have been interdeding for their family.
When you approach the altar to receive the Eucharist that day, ask your babes to be there as you receive the King of Kings. They are always in the Presence of God so at that moment you are closest to them.

I was checking to see if you had any more posts up... (like a NAME!!!...better not pull an Emily on me on this one!!!) Looks like this little one has your feet too (like Mary Grace had in that precious picture or Rob holding them)! Like I told Em the other day, we've been friends for almost 20 years! How blessed I am to be close enough to you to be able to recognize the feet of your baby on an ultrasound!!! Beautiful!
