1/4 of the way there!

10 weeks down, 30 to go! In a way 30 weeks sounds like eternity but when we look at how fast these first 10 weeks have gone it seems like Baby Andrews will be here before we know it. I am starting to feel better. (knock on wood!) I still have those terrible moments but I think I am through the hardest part. I had my first doctors appointment yesterday, ouch is the only word I can use to explain it. I told my nurse that my doctor is going to have to give me an epidural at month 8. I am no super woman and I am definitely not going to try to be "all natural". We turned down all the "diagnostic tests" that they offer in the first trimester. Its amazing how many decisions we are already having to make. We decided that there was no reason for us to have them test for down syndrome and the other diseases because no matter what the outcome is we are going to keep our baby. I am so thankful that my doctor is Pro-life and a devout Christian. I would never want to be under the care of someone who was ok with murdering babies. It is just not ok.

So onto the latest things that are going on with Baby Andrews...
  • Baby is now the size of a sugar packet! - 2 inches long!

  • I am happy to announce that our baby no longer has a tail!

  • We are now able to use our doppler and listen to the heartbeat at home! Its amazing! Tonight it was beating at 173bpm! It is the best sound ever!

  • Baby is now kicking and moving all around due to strong muscle development
