Very Active!

I have heard that phrase several times during each of the ultrasounds I have had with this baby... every technician and doctor loves to remark how active this baby is!

But the best part of it??? I get to feel it. It is so comforting, so precious...and so calming. I cherish each day of it.... and each movement I feel - because there isn't too much in life that is as sweet as feeling a baby move inside of you. I can feel the baby roll, punch, kick, and push. Baby seems to be especially active in the mornings.

Micah and Dunkin (the dog) have begun to take special interest in the baby as well. Micah loves coming up to my stomach to kiss it, loves to talk to "BeBe" and tells the baby "Night-Night". He's always loving on the baby.... so sweet. Even the crazy Beagle dog has some sense of what is going on too. Occasionally throughout the day he'll come up and sit right by my stomach, which is not normal for him. He'll just sit there as if to say "I'm here...everything is ok." Makes me smile... I love my boys, and they're good big brothers to this baby already.

I'm not sure how often I will update with news on the baby at this point, as the appointments are still a month in between - keep checking back, though. I have a normal routine prenatal check up next week, then the next high-risk appointment is on June 3rd. We hope to know more by that date. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. We certainly feel at peace right now...


  1. Erika!
    Somehow I just found your new blog today--I had been wondering about if you were still blogging--I am so glad I found this one so that I can pray for you guys and your sweet little baby! Sending lots of love your way as you walk this difficult road...

  2. Hey Erks,
    I sent my mom this link so she can pray and follow along with your journey too. I love you and miss you and am praying for you!

  3. I just found your blog - I wish you all the best!

    P.S. our beagle, Marli was so sweet all the years we tried to have kiddos and is now a proud mini-momma to our 9 month old daughter! Sometimes pets just know you need a little extra love, right?
