Finn now has 15 1/2 teeth! Three of his canine teeth came in within the last couple of days (Jim noticed them on Sunday morning) and the last one is pushing the gum, but hasn't popped through yet...ouch.
I had an ultrasound this morning. I was bummed because Jim couldn't be there, but was very happy that Kristine was able to come along for support and to keep Finn busy. Kelsie was able to come for most of the appointment, too! The ultrasound technician told us what we're having and while they can't say they are 100% certain, she said she is highly confident with her prediction. We have a couple family members yet to tell, so I'll post it tomorrow! Sorry to make you wait.
Oh and the baby and cervix continue to look good. I've been feeling some mild cramping yesterday and this morning, but the doctor isn't concerned at this point. Hopefully just something I ate or ligaments stretching because my belly is getting huge (compared to pre-pregnancy anyway)! Our next ultrasound will be the comprehensive level 2 anatomy scan, so we should know a lot about the baby after that appointment, which is next Friday, Sept 24.
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
