Some Urgent Prayer Requests

Yesterday we got a call that one of my nephews in Ohio was rushed to the hospital because he had an aorta rupture. Usually in this case, the victim is dead on arrival. He made it to the hospital and was in surgery for many hours. He made it through surgery and they thought he was going to be okay. We got the call this morning that he had passed away. He was only 33. Please, please pray for the family.

My second prayer request is that we are going to have to go to Ohio and I have been so sick since I woke up this morning. I cannot keep anything down. I know this is just part of being pregnant, but if the Lord doesn't move, it's going to make it hard on me going to Ohio.

Thank you all for your prayers!

I Would Like For You To Meet Our Baby

We had our first ultrasound today!

Ain't our baby precious! Aww! I still cannot believe God has blessed us again with a baby. So amazing!

I had been pretty nervous all day about this ultrasound. Thinking things like what if they can't find a heartbeat, what if there isn't a baby at all, what if there is 2 babies, or THREE babies (thanks Bro.Davy). But everything went great. The baby is measuring right on target which means my official due date is January 29, 2012.

When she first got the picture up on the screen, my first thought was, "Okay, where is the baby?" I almost cried (happy tears of course) when I finally saw our baby. Then I thought, "Okay, now what about the heart beat? Why can I not see it's heart beating?" Then the woman got a little closer to the baby and we were able to hear it's heart beating! Right out loud, Steven and I both said, "Praise the Lord!" We were so happy!

The baby's heart rate was 136. With my first ultrasound with Trinity, her heart rate was 129. They said that everything looked perfect!

Trinity went with us and was amazed at all the stuff in the room. I asked her when I put her to bed tonight, if she got to see her baby brother or sister today. She said, "Uh huh!" (Which means yes in her language!) She is going to be the best big sister ever!

I had my first OB appointment Thursday. It went good too. Very uneventful. When my doctor walked into the room, she said, "Ivis Jones! It's about time you got back in here! I was beginning to think you'd never come back!"

I am so thankful for this baby. I am already head over heels in love with him or her. I can't wait to hold this baby in my arms.

I still plan on making my blog private, so if you want to continue reading my blog, you will need to leave me a comment with your email address or you can email me at ivis_jones@hotmail.com with your email.
