Today we had a full ultrasound of the baby at Bergan. We were so excited to find out that she is now near the 50th percentile for growth, which means she is of average size!!! She continues to be very active, and all of her functions look great. We feel so blessed! I was also informed that I have "graduated" from weekly cervical ultrasounds. My cervix seems to be holding up and I am 28 weeks tomorrow, so I can just proceed with my every-other week check with Dr. Ryder and don't have to go back to Bergan until 34 weeks. =) I walked out of the hospital with a genuine sense of excitement. Chad and I both feel like we can now proceed with some of the planning we have been wanting to do, but were holding off for fear of getting our hopes too high. I cannot express how thankful I am that things went well today!

Immediately after my appointment, Chad, Emily, and I headed to Shenandoah, Iowa to see Chad's Grandma Esther. She was admitted to the hospital yesterday with some heart and lung issues, and the doctors are in the process of evaluating the best treatment for her. Grandma is 98 years old, and is such a classy, loving, and funny lady. We would be so grateful if you could add Grandma Esther to your prayers tonight. We are praying that the doctors would make the best decisions for a woman of her age, and that she would be experiencing God's peace. Thank you!

Thanks for reading, and God Bless!!!
