30 weeks 5 days

I spent my afternoon with Joshua and his birthmom. We had lunch and shopped a little bit, and then went to the hospital for his ultrasound. He was feeling a bit shy today, and was hiding his face behind his hands, so we didn't get any good face or profile views. We did see (and hear) his heart (141 beats per minute), his spine, his brain, and his femur. The doctor said everything looks great, he's weighing in at 4 lbs. 2 oz. (with 9 weeks to go!!). His tummy is measuring a bit large, so they want birthmom to watch her blood sugar carefully. Otherwise, the appt was uneventful. No pics - but I felt incredibly blessed to be a part of it.

Great! We are having a semi open or closed adoption. Not quite comfortable being as open as yours. If I be so bold to ask...are you and the birthmother getting along well? I wish you all the best. I will put you on my blog roll to follow your journey.

Wow, what a great experience! I am so happy for you Rach, that the last 2 blogs brought tears to my eyes. I'm glad that you're getting to be a part of Joshua's life even before he comes into your arms. You, Chris, and baby Joshua are in our thoughts and prayers. I love you.
