22 weeks

After 12 days in NE, mom and I came back to Arkansas. Today (Friday) was the big ultrasounds. They measured everything- bones, organs, growth, facial figures, etc. What a nerve racking experience! Over the past few weeks i haven't been able to feel the baby move as much as what I considered normal. So I couldn't wait to hear the report! While laying there with the ultrasounds tech, Tyler and my Mom all in the room I was overcome with how good God is. Each part that the tech examined was perfect. How awesome! we got to see so much of the baby! we even found out that the position of my placenta is right where the baby kicks so that's why movement isn't as strong- it also means when i do feel the baby it means that he is STRONG! It was such a treat to have ty video the whole experience and to have my mom here for this.

It is so hard being so far away from my NE family but i know that God has me here with ty for a reason... (it also helps that ty's fam is so loving and supportive! ha!) Going home for 12 days was a treat. I can't express how much needed that time was.

At the appointment we also found out the my blood sugar and my hemoglobin was low- which is why i've been feeling faint the last few weeks. I've got another appointment in two weeks :)

21 weeks

how fitting to have my 21 week pics in a cornfield :)

I'm home for a little over a week in NE. It's so good to be here! we've been doing wedding things- including a girls trip to omaha/lincoln for two days.

Today (Thurs) it finally got FREEZING out and there was suggestion of eventual snow! I lucked out and got to ride the combine with dad for a little while.

It's so good to be here but BOY do i miss TY!

During our girls trip to omaha and lincoln shopping we found a parking spot that was reserved for future momma's :) WE definitely took advantage- it saved me aching ankles :)

20 weeks

This weekend we had the pleasure of having my sis, Shelby, and her fiance, Mike come down to get their engagement pics taken from a good friend of Tyler and mine. She's the same photographer that is famous for making Tyler and I "famous" by selling our pics on stock photography websites.
The weekend flew by with some great pics of mike and shel. During one of the shoots, Jen decided to take a few of Tyler and I and my belly. They are beautiful 20 week shots. THANKS JEN!!! (she's amazing!)
