I forgot to tell you all here that we had an ultrasound for Amanda on Wednesday. Unfortunately it was an emergency scan because of red bleeding, but fortunately most everything looked fine! So, they did a full anatomy scan, and everything looked good except for the umbilical cord. Turns out the umbilical cord is only two vessels instead of three (typical cord has two arteries and one vein, this one only has one artery and one vein). They said that it isn't rare, but that it can have issues related to it, mostly an issue with the heart. They looked closely at the heart, and it looked great, four chambers, beating strong and healthy at 151 beats per minute. Because of this, they'll be watching everything a little closer. She'll have scans every two weeks or so to check out the baby's heart and growth rate.

AND, while they were doing the anatomy scan, the baby cooperated nicely by showing the goods HAHA! It's a GIRL! Her name is Virginia Faylea We're having a daughter!
