Little Baby Babb

Well now, we promised an update on baby Babb, didn’t we? Here we go! I’m now 35 weeks along! Today I went in for a non-stress test and an ultrasound. The tech estimated our little boy to weigh in at 6lb 8oz already! She also took some adorable 3-D ultrasound photos for us. Last week when I went in for my non-stress test, they sent me down to Labor & Delivery triage because I was having so many Braxton-Hicks contractions. After a few hours of monitoring and an IV for hydration, they determined that I wasn’t in true labor. I am, however, dilated to 3cm. Because of this, the nurses and midwives think I will probably deliver by Christmas! Little Babb has been measuring one week big and my tummy is measuring two weeks big (extra fluid), but Christmas would still be three whole weeks early. We are hoping he will hold on for a little while longer- 36 weeks (Dec 16) makes for a better baby. We would appreciate your prayers that he would come at a healthy time for his development. The good news is that when a baby this far along is “driving” (I go into labor naturally) the baby doesn’t usually have many problems or need NICU time. We are very grateful for this prognosis.

We are pregnant! I’m 16 weeks exactly today. You’ll notice I use “we” in that first sentence- Brandon has been an absolute gem in trying to help me with morning sickness, grabbing me food when I just need to eat something “NOW.” and patiently listening to me tell him all my aches and pains. The pregnancy seems to be going well so far and I think I’m starting to feel “him” kick. Next week at our monthly appointment, our doc is going to try to tell the gender. The little one is due January 13, 2015. It’s great timing as we are going to be overseas in a few short weeks (post on that coming soon). I’m thankful I’m past that first scary trimester and its nausea, but not so far along I won’t fit in the airplane seats. We will keep you all updated through this blog, but in the meantime, would you please be praying for us? We are excited for a boy or girl, whatever God would like to give us, and we would appreciate prayers for a healthy pregnancy and baby. Much love to you all!
