Healthy baby (Praise God!)

I had my ultrasound on Friday and found out that the baby's kidneys are back within a normal range and were around the same size as my previous ultrasound four weeks prior! No more monitoring or ultrasounds and we also don't need to visit with a specialist. I truly believe God hears and answers prayers, so thank you all for your prayers and kind words during this uncertain time!

As for my pregnancy, I'm definitely feeling like it's the last trimester. My lower back is sore sometimes and my siatic nerve is pinched too. Not to the point where I can't do things, but definitely where I feel it when I do certain things. Walking on the treadmill and various stretches help. I started my weekly physical therapy appointments with a pre-natal specialist yesterday who gave me several tips on how to lift kids, get out of bed, and do chores around the house. It is really amazing how your body changes when you're pregnant! From reduced range of motion to the loose ligaments and joints. Eleven weeks to go now! I think this last trimester will probably go by the slowest, even though the pregnancy really has flown by.

On a side note, we got Ashleigh's spring pictures taken last week and I am taking her in this Friday for her first haircut and Easter pictures. I pasted in the low resolution pictures from the photographer's website above and if you want to see the other three or order pictures, click on the link in the space below, but I warn you that they're expensive...

I am so glad to hear that the baby is doing well. Let us know if there is anything we can do. I know how long the last few months can be.
