We had our third prenatal appointment on Monday of this week. We are excited to let you in on a good report. Bambino's heartbeat was 142 beats per minute. It was music to Mommy & Daddy's ears; I don't know if I've ever heard anything quite as beautiful as our child's heartbeat. Dr. Phillips said that Baby is progressing nicely and according to blood work is healthy. We go back for an ultrasound on Monday March 8. Hopefully, we will be able to find out if we are going to have a son or a daughter at that appointment- it will be an early birthday present for Joshua!
Bambino is officially fifteen weeks old today. I can't believe that it has already been almost four months and the second trimester is underway. What a great responsibility that God has given us to raise this precious child for His honor and glory. When we are asked if we want a boy or girl, we are both quick to respond that it doesn't matter as long as it's healthy.
