Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy -- meditate on these things.
We went to our 32 week appointment today and the office was much busier than when we've come before. The baby moved vigorously during the exam and the midwife had a hard time hearing his heartbeat. The first time, he obviously moved away from where she had the fetoscope; on the next try, I pushed a bit on the other side with my hand so he couldn't move away from it. The heartbeat was correspondingly fast for all his excercise. There was a student there for the appointment (yes they asked me if it was ok) and he was amazed at the movement and feeling the little foot/knee/something.
Everyone is healthy and baby's still head down. Thank you for your prayers and keep them up!
And now for a little fun: All those rooting for a girl can hang on to the old wives' tale about fetal heartrates. This baby's heartrate has been consistently higher than all of the boys'. However, those wishing for a boy can count on the tale about carrying; I am carrying exactly the same way that I have before - low and out in front.
When Jonathan saw the ultrasound pictures of Bonnie's baby, he said he wanted to find out what ours is, too! I told him he'll find out in 8 weeks or so, but he still has a hard time knowing how long that is.
