This has by far been the best week of our pregnancy for me because I am finally starting to relax a little bit. I’m not following my wife into the women’s restroom while we are out in public to make sure everything is okay (okay, I haven’t actually done that but I was close a few times). The problems that I mentioned in my week 14 blog post that Donna was experiencing are no more! I’m pretty sure prayer knocked those out of the park! Our Urologist was very cool and spent a lot of time w/ us going over possible scenarios that might have been the root cause but at the end of the day he was very honest and said that he had no clue why she had the problems but that they were no more!!
We also visited our OBGYN this week and got to see our bundle of joy on the ultrasound again. Everything appears to be developing just perfectly and Dr. Cole said that we were entering into the phase where we could actually relax and enjoy the pregnancy. These were welcome words to me because I knew that there was a particular point during a pregnancy where the risk for miscarriage was dramatically lowered and apparently we are past that stage now. Our OBGYN tried to see on the ultrasound if he could tell us what we were going to have, boy or girl, but we were unable to really make out anything. We are going to go for a different type of ultrasound in 2 weeks that will give us a better picture and hopefully I can break that news in my next blog post to you guys. Oh, and one other tidbit of information, our baby has ears now. Instead of going to bed at night watching re-runs of Two and a Half Men, we are watching History and Discover Channel.
Thanks again for all of your thoughts and prayers of support during this pregnancy! Please continue!!!
