I've been meaning to remind you all that the episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition from our area is airing this Sunday evening on ABC! It's Easter Sunday, so be sure and set your DVR if you want to see it but will be traveling or at church services. The episode is 2 hours long. I'm so looking forward to watching the Beach family's story and I know you'll be touched by it, too. You might even be able to spot Chuck and myself in the crowd yelling, "Move that bus!" :)
I have a couple of little updates for you about the pregnancy. Things are still going well. I'll hit 15 weeks this weekend! I have been starting to feel nervous again because of the wait for our next ultrasound. We just placed the order today to rent a doppler. (Thanks so much for your suggestions and advice about that.) We look forward to having it here in a few days so we can listen to the heartbeat whenever we want. Hopefully that will help to calm my fears a bit.
In addition, today I decided to call to set up an appointment for an elective ultrasound. There is a place not far from where I live that does them. My state requires a doctor's consent before you can get one of these, so I'm still working on getting that done. If all works out I hope to have the appointment in about 3 weeks. It amazes me that we could find out our baby's gender by the end of the month! We still have the anatomy ultrasound scheduled with the OB's office on May 17, so we'll have another chance in case the little one doesn't want to cooperate. I think it will do us so much good to just have time to spend seeing the baby again and having the reassurance that he or she is still growing.
That's about it for now. Wishing you all a very happy Easter weekend!
