12 Weeks today

Yesterday we had our second ultrasound. We were so excited. Baby Willoughby was moving around like crazy. To be honest, I think I felt the baby move for the first time Tuesday night. It felt like when you get a twitch in your eye. It wasn't very much, and I think if I had not been in that half conscious/sorta sleeping state, I might not have felt it. I know they say that it's too early, but we'll see. ;)

So it looks as if the baby is measuring a week ahead of schedule (12w and 2d...instead of 11w and 3d), and so the Dr. said that we should just go by the original due date of September 2, 2010....which would make us exactly 12 weeks today.

So our new due date will be September 2, 2010. I can't say how excited we are. It's been such an emotional journey for me to get to this milestone. With miscarriage on my mind constantly, it was very hard for me to really embrace the fact that we might become parents soon.

Bro. Rodney Rushing just preached a message on Sunday (Feb 14, 2010) about faith, and how Abraham was considered to have great faith even though he laughed at God when God told him that he was going to have a son. Bro Rushing even went on to say that yes, that was doubt, and that he tried to reason with God that the promise would come from his other son.....but God mentioned in Romans 4 (I think that was the scripture he used) that Abraham had Great faith. Bro Rushing also said that even though there was doubt, Abraham never acted out on that doubt, and that it's okay for us to have doubt, but not to act out on it.

I felt like God had given me peace about this pregnancy from that message...and that even though I think that my pregnancy might end in miscarriage, that as long as I did not act out on that doubt, I could still have faith.

I am so grateful for God taking the time to reassure my mind, and that even though I had doubt, everything turned out alright. Our baby was alive with a heartbeat, and moving up a storm. That we reached the milestone of 12 weeks and the baby is still alive was great faith to me. I am so thankful for my God.

10 weeks and 2 days

This week we have reached week 10. I can't believe that we are this far along. Baby Willoughby is now the sized of a Kumquat. My morning sickness has now gone away. I have also developed a bad cold, and so have suffered the cough and sniffles of it. Not fun!

I have decided to not look for a job. It's not like they will hire a pregnant lady anyways right? So we are trusting in God to provide our needs. He is able!

On a side note, I already have my crib and changing table. We got those months ago, and were saving them for the time we would be expanding the family. Any hand me downs are appreciated too!

As far as themes for a nursery, I was thinking of going with the Character Rip Squeak, and depending on gender, white eyelet, or bright reds, greens, blues, and purples. Anyhoo, Rip Squeak is adorable. (see pic below)

I am open to ideas, so if you have any, just let me know.

9 Weeks and 1 day

So today we are 9 weeks and 1 day along. I am still amazed at how the human body is formed. I mean today our baby is about the size of a medium grape. Weird to think that our baby started out smaller that period at the end of this sentence. I still need to post the pictures from last weeks ultrasound, and once our computer is up and running again, I will do so. Hard drive crashed...will be fixing it hopefully within a week or so.

So in the mean time, I have not had any cravings per se, mainly food disinterest. It's like I'll make dinner, but don't really want to eat it. I do have to say, that I love fruit, and can't get enough of it, (but I wouldn't call it a craving). Grapes, oranges, apples....any will do :)

This last week we decided to tell our church. They were SOOOOO excited....did I say excited. I think it has to do with the fact that I practically grew up there. I started attending our church when I was almost half my life.

We are blessed to have so many friends that are willing to help, and lend support. I'll be posting each week. So keep your eyes tuned in for the latest happenings around the Willoughby household.

Until next week,
