Ready to get tomorrow over.....

I, usually, hate to feel that way....but you know the worry wort I am, and tomorrow makes me nervous!  Tomorrow, we go to have a fetal echocardiogram of Harper's heart, a normal ultrasound, and then meet w/ the doctor.  I will say it again, I feel in my heart that she's perfect in every way....but it just makes me nervous that she might not be and it could be something I've done!  I'm praying about it and I know that God is in control!  We love her to pieces no matter what already and she's our little miracle, so I'm going to keep that in my thoughts!

So what is fetal echocardiography?

Fetal echocardiography is a test using sound waves (ultrasound) to study the structure of your baby’s heart before birth. The OBGYN may obtain a limited view of your baby’s heart during a routine pregnancy ultrasound. However, a fetal echocardiogram is a very detailed evaluation of your baby’s heart by a specialist in fetal echocardiography. This is just a precautionary procedure since I am an insulin-dependent diabetic....that's why I'm so worried!  I don't want for something I've done to affect her in any negative way!  

So, let's all send up a little extra prayer for the Fuston's tonight...I'll definitely post pics and updates after our appts. tomorrow.  I'm excited to see how big she is and how much she has grown in the last 6 weeks.  After this appt, we will go back in 3 more weeks, and then weekly visits!  YAY! .....okay, a little sarcasm there....but it'll all be well worth it in the end when I see her precious face!  Please pray......xoxo

Oh I will be praying for you and Harper tomorrow. I know everything will turn out fine. But I also know what it is to be an expectant mother. I love the name Harper. You probably know Ashley is pregnant and she is naming her baby Lucas Tuff. Well, I know from experience you shouldn't knock it till you try it. Because Tuff is really growing on me.

Tell your dad hello for me.
