Latest on Herm
Well, a week ago we had our latest Herm appointment. Not really much to report. I guess this is when no news is good news. At the next appointment, we schedule one of the big sonograms. A few weeks after that we will be able to have the sonogram to look at the heart. Herm is getting big though. I am slowly starting to gain weight. I still have a pound to go before I catch up to what I was when I first got pregnant. My belly is measuring 1 week ahead which is normal. Herm and I are at 16 weeks today, so Herm is about the size of an avacado. Herm is really starting to develop the soccer skills that will be needed when he/she arrives! Herm's heartrate was at 150 bpm at the appointment. At the beginning of my pregnancy, my friend Kim loaned me her fetal heart monitor. It is older and better than the ones you can find in the stores today. About three weeks ago, I was able to find Herm's heartbeat on my own! I tell you, this has been a great comfort to me! I have grown to depend on it! We will be leaving for a cruise on March 16, and I will NOT be taking it with me! It is going to take a lot for me to leave it at home! I will really have to commit to trusting in God. We all appreciate your continued your prayers on Herm's behalf. We will let you know when there is anymore news!
