Yesterday when I saw my midwife...she said that instead of my measuring 31 1/2 weeks...I was measuring 39 weeks! I knew my dates were right, but she said that my measuring big could mean: 1. that I had twins, 2. I was due next week, or 3. that I had extra fluid. So, she scheduled me for an ultrasound today, and I just got back from having one. The ultrasound confirmed my feelings...~WE ARE HAVING A BOY, AND I'M ONLY HAVING ONE~!!!! Noah is DELIGHTED!! After he found out that our baby was a boy...He stood beside me while I was having the ultrasound and asked, "It's a HE for ME...and we get to take him Home?" =) The ultrasound revealed that I'm still due when I thought I was...May 24th or 25th...but that baby is making extra fluid. Baby tested to be just fine, and they are planning to do non-stress tests on him twice a week, just to keep an eye on things. The doctor said most of the time extra fluid does not mean problems, which was comforting to hear. Baby and I would appreciate prayers that God will give us the strength to do the deputation services that we need to do in the next few weeks. We are heading out to have our first service tomorrow evening in North Carolina. Since it is the furthest service away we scheduled it for this first week, so we could get it done before I get any further along. Also, I'm getting so uncomfortable...that I don't know how my baby bump can get any bigger...I think I will just pop. It would be nice if the extra fluid would go away on it's own, which they said doesn't happen often...but God is able! Thanks for your prayers!
