7 weeks!

I had my first appointment yesterday! 
Brooke is so excited about this baby so I decided to take her along.
The nurses kept telling her she gets to meet her new baby today.. 
She was so thrilled because she literally thought she was going to meet the baby. 
They started the regular sonogram but could not see anything because I wasn't that far along. 
So we switched to the other kind and still really couldn't see the baby!
I guess he or she was hugging my uterus so it was really hard to make it out.
Ooops. I just called my child an it.
Forgive me.
To Brooke it looked like a blob of nothing in something shaped like an upside down rainbow.
She kept looking over at me and beaming.
I think even though she couldn't see her baby shister she felt very big and tried her best to act grown-up.
We saw the little heart beating and of course I got emotional.
I have a little human inside me that is going to come out, Lord willing, breathing, crying, wriggling, sighing and wanting to eat. 
What a miracle that a "little blob" is our baby #3.
It just overwhelms me.
God is so GOOD!
Psalm 139:13-18 is my favorite passage right now.
For you created my inmost being;
   you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
   your works are wonderful,
   I know that full well. 
 My frame was not hidden from you
   when I was made in the secret place,
   when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
   all the days ordained for me were written in your book
   before one of them came to be. 
 How precious to me are your thoughts,God!
   How vast is the sum of them! 
 Were I to count them,
   they would outnumber the grains of sand—
   when I awake, I am still with you.

If you think about it, please pray that I find a Christian midwife. 
Aaron and I have decided we would really like to have the baby at home and I have seen what a blessing a Christian midwife can have on a birth.

So it is looking like Blessing #3 will be coming end of June beginning of July.
I am not stressing about trying to figure out a due date because they never actually turn out that way! 
The baby comes when he or she wants to come.
I was hoping I was farther along just so I could be done with the nasty feeling but oh well.
Aaron is currently at the store getting me cottage cheese, fruit-yogurt-granola, whole wheat english muffins and poptarts because those are the only things that sound good!
I think I am having a girl.
All I want is salty.
Brooke's pregnancy was all salty and Brayden's was sugar.
Oh and in both of our families the pattern goes Girl Boy Girl.
I wonder if history will repeat itself?

I will definitely keep you in prayers for a Christian midwife. We have one and it is the greatest blessing one could ask for. And having a homebirth is also a big blessing. I look forward to reading your future blog posts and seeing your family grow! God bless!
