At the 9 week ultrasound the heart rate increased to 140 and the sac is developing nicely. We are calling the baby "Peanut" for now and are choosing not to know the gender until that day. Today I had my 12 week visit with the high risk specialist. She told me that there are no concerns and we have a very active baby. Praise the Lord! In fact, the picture below on the left you can see the head peeping up and the arm lowering as if he/she is waving. Maybe a little swimmer in the future? I'm starting to look at maternity clothes and accessories to help my little wardrobe last through this pregnancy.
Our next doctor's appointment is in 4 weeks and specialist at 19 weeks to take a peek at the heart. This is especially going to be good because the donor father had an enlarged heart as a child and we can see if there are any issue to anticipate.
Our due date is mid June 2013!
Thank you everyone for your kind words of encouragement and support during our adventure to find baby Brown!! I'm still leaning on our Savior to guide us through this journey.
