I know it has been a long time since either one of us has posted so I am going to play catch-up with you.

First, an update on our last ultrasound…we didn’t learn anything new. We had a different doctor come talk to us, doctor number 3 – we haven’t had a consistent doctor for these ultrasounds and that frustrates me. This doctor informed us that we will need to meet with the pediatric cardiologist again and then have weekly ultrasounds called biophysical profiles. The purpose of the biophysical profiles are to measure five different areas – his heart rate, my fluids, his muscle tone, his movement and to see if he is practicing his breathing skills. So far none of these areas have been an issue so we don’t foresee any problems, but this is a precautionary thing they do. Please continue to pray for us and for our little man. We would love for him to be a true testimony of God’s healing powers.

Week 29…Baby Rupert had the hiccups for the first time this week. It was kinda cute and kinda painful! :) Here is my picture from week 29.


My wonderful friend Leah Hintgen threw me a baby shower for my church family and friends here in the twin cities. She did a wonderful job!! We played some fun games and ate yummy foods!! Here is a picture of all the diapers and wipes I received for this shower. We are so incredibly blessed by how generous and giving the ladies of our church and our friends are – we are set for a little while on diapers and wipes! THANK YOU!!!


Week 30…I’m not sure that Baby Rupert really likes my busy school schedule. He was protesting all day long today. He was not still for very long, constantly on the move. We’ll see how tomorrow goes, maybe he’ll be happier. Here is my week 30 picture. It’s hard to believe that I only have 10 weeks left of my pregnancy! I can’t believe how fast the time has flown by.
