Friday’s Findings

Announcing for the first time ever the gender of our baby…

haha, fooled you. And you thought we’d actually find out.

Well, what we did find out was the following:

  1. Baby’s squished in there nice and tight with minimal movement (and no showing of gender with continually squished up frog legs and fist blocking the tell-all – again modesty prevails).
  2. Baby’s measuring at 8.5 lbs plus of minus 1 lb for error. AKA, our baby could be anywhere from 7.5-9.5lbs, but is currently averaging out at about 8.5lbs of educated guessing based upon leg, arm, stomach and head measurments. The ultrasound lady said baby’s stomach is measuring a bit bigger than average babies during our current weekly status. – Whatever that means.-
  3. Baby’s heartbeat is about 136-137 beats per minute (normal and healthy).
  4. My blood pressure is good (thus far).
  5. And any and all other results will be further discussed during our Tuesday Dr.’s appt (provided that I don’t pop beforehand – which in that case the stats won’t really matter).

Didn’t actually see a doctor on Friday so I have no idea if I’ve advanced any in dilation or anything. But the ultrasound lady said baby’s head’s really far down there and repeated that a few times when trying to get a good picture. (In my mind the further the better. BRING IT ON!) So we just keep on trucking here on the homefront with packed bags by the door. I have started feeling much more sore than usual and a couple other more anatomical signs are popping up to notify me that soon baby will make it’s debut.

I’ll keep you all posted as further joys arise. Take care everyone!


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
