New Name

Our sweet boy now has a new name.  I have had trouble calling Harper, Parker and that made me sad.  Trent and I decided that Harper sounded too much like Parker and also we weren't as fond of Harper as we were a while back.  So, our boys new name is Canon.  We aren't sure of a middle name yet or if Canon will be the first or middle name but it is what he will go by.  We love it.  I go back to the specialist, next Thursday, the 1st and we are praying for good news!  Please keep the prayers coming.

Going on 17 Weeks!

  Trent and I made it back from Gulf Shores and had a blast.  I have to say I was ready to get home toward the end due to my feet swelling and sharp pains in the side of my tummy (which I think was due to riding  so much and being up on my feet for hours at a time).  Trent and I went with his parents, his grandmother, and his aunt and uncle for a few days.  The temperature was perfect, with the highs only around 90 each day.  Needless to say when we crossed back in to Louisiana we could tell due to the stifling temps.  I have a few pictures but they won't upload at the moment.  I will try to get those up soon.  
   I think I forgot to mention that U had my appt. with the specialist moved up to Sept. 1st instead of the 12th.  It was really bothering me that I wouldn't see the doctor again until after the point when my water broke with the twins, so I called and expressed my concern and sure enough they moved me up.  I was supposed to see him in three weeks instead of four anyway but due to the office being closed they couldn't get me in when the doctor wanted to see me.  After calling and telling them my worries they moved me up a whole twelve days.  I am relieved to say the least.  As of now I have gained five pounds and my doctor say's I am right on target.  I look a lot larger though.  I am glad to say that there is nothing too interesting going on in our lives right now but I will keep you updated!  Like always thanks for the prayers!

15 weeks 2 days ultrasound pics

My appt. with the specialist went very well today.  We will see him again in four weeks and make sure my cervix is doing well.  We were told we had the next to the worst type of twin pregnancy since Easton and Parker shared a placenta and our chances of losing this baby are very slim. Praise be to God.  Harper measures a few days ahead and this makes us very happy.  We don't mind a fat baby. We would rather him be large than small.  Please keep the prayers coming.  As we near twenty weeks I know we will be slightly nervous.  I'll keep the updates coming thanks so much for the encouragement and kind thoughts.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

15 Weeks

Tomorrow we are 15 weeks and moving right ahead!  Things are going well ever since our ER visit.  Thanks for all the prayers! I will be going to the specialist Monday and my regular dr. Wednesday and will for sure let you know how things are going after our appts.  Thanks for following us on this journey.  I never thought I would have fifty one followers. It makes me happy that I can tell you all about Easton Parker and our new baby boy.  I'll try to add some pics soon....

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...
