William update

Sorry this is so late--we've been having internet issues. :)

A pound and a half! How quickly a baby grows: I can hardly believe our son is 25 weeks along already.

Our just-before-leaving Doctor's appointment brought good news. William is healthy, adorable and growing well. The blood results from last time all came back with negative antibody screenings, eliminating one major cause of concern. And though it isn't possible to tell for certain, from what the Doctor could see the placenta has not attached to the uterine wall yet. God has certainly been answering prayers!

We will be having more tests as the due date arrives that should help us find out more definitely, but are so grateful things look to be going so well. Know we are trying to determine what course would be best here in Missouri. Safety is obviously the first concern, but if we aren't as high risk as was first thought, it might open up more options. We would certainly appreciate your prayers for wisdom!

The burst of energy I had after the first trimester passed seems to be waning, but hopefully it is just from all the busyness and adjustments of moving.

Since I am beginning to show more, it has made the concept of a baby a little easier for Rosalind to if only she would hold still long enough to feel him moving! But whether she understands fully or not, Rose is so excited about having a baby brother and I can hardly wait!

Thanks for the update. I've been praying for both of you. I can't wait to see you! Soon?:) I know you'll be busy this weekend, and so will I.:) We'll have to plan something.
