|Baby Smith at 13 weeks|
I passed the 17 week mark last Friday and this Thursday we will get a good look at baby's heart. Am I hopeful? Yes. Am I scared? YES! But you know that daily bread thing? God's giving it to us. Just this week, in my study of Isaiah, we read this verse in chapter 25:
"LORD, you are my God;And in the very next chapter:
I will exalt you and praise your name,
for in perfect faithfulness
you have done wonderful things,
things planned long ago."
"You will keep in perfect peaceWe will head to Luke's cardiologist's on December 16 for a fetal echo. We decided to do the fetal echo before my regular 18-20 week OB ultrasound. We didn't want to experience that "Well, we're not sure, but we think something's wrong with your baby's heart" moment again. So we'll get a good look at the baby's heart first, and then do our regular ultrasound on December 27. And we'll pray that God keeps our minds "steadfast" on His "perfect faithfulness" while we await these appointments.
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you."
Just to make the 16th a bit more exciting, we're also scheduled for Luke's 6-month checkup on that day. Yes, we would love your prayers!
And what gender does our analytical boy predict for our family? "A sister ... because I'M the brother!"
