Well, we went to my checkup to find out the gender of our baby yesterday.
The Dr. kept measuring the head over and over again, and didn't do much to look for the gender-because the baby was curled up enough that it made it difficult to see anything. But from what he could see, he thinks it's a girl.
The reason he was focusing on the head so much is that it's only measuring at 20 weeks 3 days, and the abdomen, though not quite as small, is a little over a week behind in size. But the leg length is a few days ahead.
He says the placenta looks fine, but that he's referring us to a perionatologist who will be able to do some in depth examining to be sure every thing is okay because as of today, I am supposed to be 23 weeks along. And the last time I had an ultrasound, the baby was right on target.
So, it was a little disheartening coming away with that news and no real news as to the gender.
But, all things are in the Lord's hands, maybe this will just be a smaller baby-all legs:) I feel peace that everything will work out just fine. I just hope that if there is something not quite right, that there is a way to help correct it, or that it will correct itself.

So, we would appreciate any prayers and fasting in our baby's behalf. This baby is very active for the most part, kicking and moving around almost constantly (especially at night), so I'm assuming he or she is healthy.
Love to all,
