ER Visit and some Unsuspected News!

   Last night, Trent and I made our first and hopefully last trip to the E.R. Starting around 2:00 p.m. yesterday I was having sharp pains down the right side of my stomach.  The pain only got worse and was to the point of taking my breathe away.  At 10:30 last night we decided it was time to call the doctor.  She immediately told me to come to the ER and have an ultrasound.  Around 12:00 a.m. we had our ultrasound, which showed my cervix was perfectly normal and our baby was doing great, with a heartbeat of 160.  Since Dr. G was worried that I could possibly need a cerclage, she wanted the baby to have a full anatomy scan to be sure there were no issues that would cause him/her to be incompatible with life.  As the scan began, we saw our baby's brain, heart, kidney's, arms, legs, spine, etc.  It seemed to be doing just wonderful.  I had no clue nor was I even concerned with the gender of our baby because I just wanted it to be healthy.  Although, like I said before, my entire family, myself included were convinced we were having a girl.  As the ultrasound continued, I heard here's the leg and the femur and......That's when she pointed to the screen and it was clear, that we were having our third little boyHarper Trenton it is.  We are so excited and have now decided that I obviously am not a good guesser.  Baby Harper has our heart's already and we are smitten with him just as we were with Easton and Parker.  Please keep Harper in your prayer's and pray that I have no reason to visit the ER again.  I do have an ultrasound pic from twelve weeks and one from last night at 13 1/2 weeks that I will upload soon. 
     I am so happy for Trent.  His eyes filled with tears as we were told we were having another baby boy and I know that Easton and Parker weren't far from his mind.  I look forward to watching Harper grow and know that we will see a little of both of his brother's in him... I pray that God will keep him safe until he is in our arm's...
