I Knew It!

Well, today we had our appointment with the doctor (follow up for the ultrasound). I KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG! Something was wrong- I could tell by that sonogramer lady(whatever they're called). Apparently, the umbilical cord only has two vessels instead of three. They usually have two veins and one artery but the poor little guy only has one vein and one artery (cause, unknown). So, it happens in 1-100 pregnancies and 2/3 pregnancies deliver healthy babies.....so I should be good - right? Well, that didn't stop me from doing tons of research on the internet. The words that stuck out were....chromosome abnormalities, fetal distress, heart and kidney problems, STILLBIRTH! Yeah, nothing to stress about. Whatever! I'm so stressed out. I can't believe this. I can't believe I was so apathetic about being pregnant in the beginning. I was so scared. I remember hearing, "Just have faith" every time I would stress about having two fussy babies. Now I'm hearing that even louder. I know I need to be faithful but it's way hard to not stress out!!! The doctor is doing another ultrasound in 6-8 weeks. I'm sure it will be fine. He was not too worried! Anyway, keep us in your prayers.

I know everything will be alright. If you ever need anything, a break or anything just let me know. The offer never expires. You'll be in our prayers.

Of course you will be in our prayers. And... I sounds like you need a blessing. I'm sure there are plenty of willing men who will help. Travis of course will, if you haven't already received one.

All our love.

Oh thomas! You need some calming oils, no? :) Let me know if you need anything, pumpkin bread, stretchy pants, whatever. You know I'm good for it!

We'll be praying for you. We love you!

It will be okay, I know it is hard but try to relax. Stressing out will just cause more problems. Wait for the next ultrasound. You are a healthy mom, I am sure it will all work out...Have faith :)

Oh Lori, I am so sorry. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you. I will keep you in my prayers.

I wish I knew what to say that would make you use me and Chris as stress outlets--we are here, plug on in! Really, we would love to watch Sean ANYtime, or just do the monitor, or maybe give you a massage...? Let me know what I can do, neighbor!!

Lori, I'm so sorry. It is stressful to have baby worries. We had lots of scares with both of our boys and I couldn't sleep or think about anything else. I wanted to read and read about every possible scenario and that just freaks you out more. Just know that we love you guys and your little family. It sounds horrible and probably doesn't help but even if something is wrong, that little baby is exactly the way Heavenly Father wants him to be and he is perfect! We always worry more than we know how to stay calm - thats just being a mom, weather it's necessary or not. Hang in there! I'm glad you have a friend who will make you pumpkin cread, that couldn't hurt!We love you guys.

Hey; I just linked to your blog from Alisha's and I'm sorry to hear about what you're going through. I'm sure everything will be fine, and even if something is wrong, it will still be ok and the lord will bless and help you. You're such a nice, adorable girl! I will pray for you. Keep smiling :)

I'm working on cards--nothing mass produced, but I have an idea I'm working on. She says maybe 20 ppl? She's working on addresses. Any ideas for food? I think doing it at her house is still a good idea, but let me know what you think.

Hey Lori and Mike

The abnormality in the umbilical cord is scary. I am sorry that you have to go through this heartache and worry. We will keep you all in our prayers.

How was Gen Conf? Did you gain comfort? I hope so. Our family has a special spot for you Mike and Sean in our hearts. Love you, Betsy
