And Another Baby Makes #3 !!!

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:13-14

We are so excited to announce that the Lord has chosen to bless us with Baby Long #3!!! Our due date is April 27th, 2012 and I've FINALLY made it to the 12 week mark! Praise the Lord! It's been a TOUGH couple of months full of feeling REALLY yucky, being sick, exhausted beyond belief, and all those other fun first trimester "blessings" :) but I'm praying that there is relief around the corner with the 2nd trimester :) We are just thankful for a healthy baby so far! Praise the Lord!

Here are a few cute pics from my 12 week ultrasound:

My appointment today was for a regular check-up and Nuchal Translucency testing . This test is where an ultrasound is done to measure the clear (translucent) space in the tissue at the back of your developing baby's neck and bloodwork to determine if there are any possible chromosomal abnormalities. The baby's nuchal fold was within "normal" limits. There was something that the teach was not able to measure during the ultrasound today, so we will be going back for another ultrasound in 2 weeks. We should get the results of the blood work in about 1 week. We are praying that everything looks good with the blood work and at the next ultrasound as well.

Baby's Measurement 12 Weeks: 6 cm (2.4 inches)
