20 week Update

As I said, last week we had 2 big appointments. One was with the maternal fetal specialist and one with my regular OB. The specialist was getting a better look at the spine to see if the AFP test was true to the spina bifida possibility. They concluded that baby girl does NOT have it! The spine looked perfect along with the heart and brain. We are so thankful and relieved to hear this news. We really had such a peace going into the appointment. I honestly had not worried about it and the appointment snuck up on me. When I was walking in the elevator I was like, Oh gosh maybe I should start freaking out now since I hadn't yet or should start actually preparing my heart for bad news. Thankfully there was no need to and we couldn't be more grateful for the way God has answered so many prayers. This baby is truly such a miracle already and I'm counting down the days until I can meet her {or name her}!
I go back in 3 weeks for my glucose test. I'm super nervous about that. My mom had Gestational Diabetes with my sister and I'm worried I may get it, so we are praying against that.
Here she is yawning. She is also giving herself bunny ears:)

Bump at 20 weeks!

It was such a great week getting some awesome news and I finally started for sure feeling precious flutters. I'm officially addicted and want to feel them all the time. I can't even explain how so very thankful I am for each one. I also have been going to the Chiropractor once a week and it has helped tremendously with my back pain issue. Again, I can't tell you how grateful I am for that as well because I feel completely debilitated when it hurts, like can't even think straight. Praise Jesus from whom all blessing flow.

Psalm 135:3
Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; Sing praises to His name, for it is lovely.

I had a positive AFP test and it blew my mind, everything was ok on my end too. My baby was born without issue, I hope you can put this concern in a little box and never have to worry about it again.
