Baby News...


If you have seen me in the last few weeks you have either thought I was putting on a few or drank my fair share of summer beers. :) Not the case this time around. Tom, Maddie and I are thrilled to share with you that we are expecting a baby early March. I am 13 weeks and feeling extremely pregnant. Which I am not complaining about, (well not to anyone other than Tom poor guy). I have had three ultra sounds, that last one being on Thursday. The doctors couldn't be happier about this pregnancy, everything is looking really good at this point. Maddie and I saw the baby moving all over the place...such a treat.

I am seeing a doctor every other week, between my regular OB and the Maternal Fetal Medicine office where I see a team of doctors. They are simply amazing. That have figured out (or at least have narrowed down) why Maddie was so tiny, why I have had the back to back miscarriages. I have what they call a bicornuate uterus ( heart shaped), which I have known about since age 19 but wasn't aware of the huge issues it can cause until now. I won't bore you with all of the details, but put simply; my uterus is a bit cramped and can sometimes not provide the placenta enough goods for the baby. ;) This time around the placenta is in a GREAT spot and the baby is growing like a champ. WAHOOO!

I have a ultra sound every month or so. So, we will find out the sex of the baby on October 2nd. Just in time for the M.O.P.S sale!! :D I am going to put my guess in writing here. :D I say it's a Boy. Felt it from the get go, so we'll see. :) I'd love to see what everyone else thinks, so I'm gong to put a poll up for kicks.

Hugs to you all and thank you for your continuing support of all of our "baby drama". We have faith and know that God has the ultimate plan. Please keep those prayers come'n!! Someone's listening!!

Love,
Tom, Lauren, Maddie and Baby Hos
