Good news...

Well, we went to the doctor last Friday and had measurements taken and bloodwork done and got the word today that Abbey looks normal and healthy. My iron levels are a little low so I'm going on Iron supplements for a while, but that really doesn't surprise me since it is something I have dealt with since I was in 7th grade. Anyway, I'm five months along and only have 4 to go. I'm ready to see our little girl. Clark finally got to feel her last night when she decided to stick a leg or elbow or something in the air and it made a little bump on my tummy, not one you could see, but definately one we could feel. She's still not making a lot of movement that I can feel on a regular basis so as much as he really wants to feel her move, Clark is going to have to wait until she gets a little bigger. But I think the bump he felt last night helped. That's all for now. I'm sure I'll have pictures next week, since we are going camping this weekend. Don't worry, we borrowed Clark's dad's camper so I can have air conditioning and we aren't going too far, just to Rock Island. Have a great weekend everyone!

It's a girl!

Well, I'm sure some of you have heard but for those who haven't, we are having a girl. We have decided to name her Abbey Claire and Clark and I are both very excited. He has already said that he can't wait to teach her to play guitar and she should have her first rock band by the time she hits junior high school. She will definately be her daddy's little girl. He will be so wrapped. In the meantime we have already started shopping for little girl things. Thanks to Aunt Jan, she has a great little pink onesie that says, "Don't laugh, Daddy dressed me" that Clark took very well. He said that is one thing he will have to get used to is the way to dress a little girl, especially after seeing the 2T sized halter tops at K-Mart yesterday. I believe his words were, "I don't want her in a halter top when she's 20, much less when she's 2." Protective already. I will try to get the ultrasound picture on soon.
