on january 20 i had my 1st official pre-natal check-up. and it was then that many of my concerns were relieved. baby sprout is growing & the heartbeat was strong!
it was also the first time i’d heard & been labeled “AMA – advanced maternal age”. oh my! i’m still trying to figure out what i should do with my newly acquired credentials… maybe i’ll print up some business cards: “Jennifer Davis, AMA”. letters after a name always make a person look more professional & everyone knows i could use the assistance!
anyhoo, following our “it’s really real” appointment i told jarod we could go ‘public.’ afterall, i’d already spilled the beans a few times fearing my stomach would give me away & render me speechless!
without further ado here’s some baby sprout fast facts!
how far along: 10 weeks
due date: august 25. Sterling will be a month shy of 6 & Liberty three months shy of 4!
morning sickness: yes! yuck! and extreme exhaustion. poor sprouts… they’ve been forced to watch too much tv & even homeschool has been neglected – ahhh!
gender: don’t yet know. and don’t have a preference. God has proven he has our best in mind too many times for me to try to determine it for myself!
east side plans: we’re still scheduled to return to urbanus in less than a month – february 17. hoping the nesting instinct kicks into full gear and the exhaustion & nausea abate between now & then!
where are you planning to give birth? we were planning to deliver in thailand (where liberty was born) as we feel very comfortable with the hospital & american-trained doctors there. however, we received an email recommending yet another country, one we’ve never been too, requiring us to make many adjustments as the hospital/doctor/housing/transportation situation is still unknown to us.
please pray we would walk in faith, humility, submission & wisdom as we embark on yet another adventure.
