What happened to December?!?

Well, I would apologize for not posting AT ALL in the month of December, but it's quite a busy month with all the band concerts, rehearsals, and other festivities going on!

For a while, pregnancy seemed pretty easy going... I'm not sure if I posted this in my last blog, but we did find out that our daughter definitely has a clubbed foot (not sure if it's both or just one). Chris & I are taking it pretty well, as many people have told us it's a doable thing. Luckily, I have a wonderful coworker whose husband can get us in at Shriner's hospital.

This week has unfortunately been a little more hectic than I would like... Our first week back at school, and I get yet ANOTHER sinus infection! I felt it coming on last Sunday, but nothing I took was going to get in the way. Before I started feeling the worst symptoms from that, I had a somewhat embarrassing night & ended up in Labor & Delivery. I would give more details, but I'll just say that I was in a lot of pain, had a little bleeding, we checked the babies, and they were doing very well. It's not blog-worthy, trust me... So, essentially, I was at the hospital on Wednesday, saw my specialist & OB on Thursday (for regularly scheduled appointments), and went to my family doctor on Friday.

My specialist appointment was a little bitter-sweet. I like going there, because those doctors are very thorough. He said everything is going well, but he was a little suspicious of a ventricle in the brain that may be "larger than normal". I didn't really like to hear that, but he said not to be concerned just yet--he wants to watch the size for the next several weeks and see if there are any changes. He said, "I'm not telling you this to alarm you. I'm telling you this because I'm supposed to tell you what I'm thinking." I pray that he doesn't find anything bad when he looks next week... It'll break my heart if something else is wrong with our baby girl.

On a positive note, I have some belly pictures!! Enjoy...

Oh, look at your cute pregnant're looking just beautiful, Heather! I pray for you and the babies every day, and will pray for baby girl's foot and brain development. Have you decided on names yet? Do tell!
