2nd doctors visit

Sorry it took so long for me to get this post up, I was without my camera and I just got it back. :)

We went to the doctor, Wednesday, July 15th, after waiting for 2 hours in a very full waiting room it was our turn to go back. Jason was able to go this time and we also took Kenya. She did pretty good during the wait, I brought her magna doodle, paper and pen (for her to draw), books and a few toys.

The first room they took us to was not a sonogram room. I was so sad, I was thinking, "I know they said I was going to have a sonogram this time." Then I felt bad because we had Kenya there with us to see the baby and I didn't think we were going to get too. So I finally asked and sure enough we were getting a sonogram, they were just waiting for a room to open up.

Once we got to the sonogram room we were so excited to see they had a brand new and very fancy sonogram machine. The only bad thing was it burned DVDs and all I had was my VHS but the nurse told me they could burn me a DVD.

The lady (I need to ask her her name) came in first and started the sonogram she was measuring the baby and it was measuring 10 weeks 5 days. I couldn't believe how clear the sonogram was. At one point the baby started moving it's arms and legs like crazy, it was so cute! I couldn't tell if Kenya was excited or not because she was upset that they turned the lights off, she was ready to go and she was hungry. But despite all that, she was still being pretty good thanks to Jason holding and loving on her.

Then my doctor came and and was asking me a few questions. I am about to talk about menstrual cycles and medical details that everyone may not want to read so if you don't want to know all of this just skip over this paragraph. If we go off the date of my last period and if my cycles are 28 days apart then the baby developing 8 days behind. But since I had the twins my periods have not been regular at all and I'm pretty sure I ovulated a week late so with all of that my doctor is going to go off the sonogram we had Wednesday to date the pregnancy.

The baby looked great. My doctor said the skull was intact, the head shape looked great, the chest cavity looked normal, and the skin at the back of the neck looked normal which meant there were probably no heart defects. It had been three years since I had a sonogram where the baby looked normal and it was such a joy to hear!

My doctor was so sweet and took a lot of time with us, he showed us the baby's chin, lips, nose, and hands. We also got to see the blood flowing from the umbilical cord to the heart and even some blood flow to the brain. That was so amazing to see the blood flowing the way it should! My doctor was so sweet and I'm so thankful that we are seeing him. Do you remember me saying that it took 2 hours to get back there for my sonogram??? Well after my doctor walked in I never would have know they were running behind he took his time with us and didn't rush out of the room which is so nice and very rare when it comes to doctors.

My new due date is February 5th which means we will be delivering in the middle of January. We are planning on waiting to find out what we are having until the baby is born. Oh, and we don't share baby names until after the baby is born, so those are two things you will have to wait for. :) I go back in four weeks for a normal appointment (no sonogram) then four weeks after that I will have my 19 week sonogram. My doctor said he will do a very detailed anatomy scan so I'm really looking forward to that!

And here is a picture of Baby Delgado #3
or "Jealous" as Kenya has so affectingly named the baby.

Remember the DVD? Well, I didn't realize that I was supposed to ask them before they started the sonogram to put it in so we have no video from our sonogram :( but my doctor said he will do a really good sonogram at 19 weeks so I'm looking forward to that!

That is our update for now we are just praising God for a good report!

Kenya's 1st Slumber Party!

Taylore and I have been best friends since 9th grade. Her and her husband Keaton have 2 kids. Their oldest daughter "Princess" Riley turned 5 and Kenya was there to celebrate!

This is a picture of Kenya and Riley in front of the castle Taylore made that covered their entry way.

Happy Birthday Riley we love you!

Taylore and Keaton took care of 13 girls 9 of which stayed the night.

They all had their hair done, nails and toes painted, played dress up, got to decorate their own cupcake, watched movies and who knows what else.
Kenya was one of the last girls to fall asleep.

A good time was had by all.

Thinking about my girls today

Melody and Madison will have been in Heaven for 8 months tomorrow. I can't believe that much time has gone by. We are doing good most days we of course still get sad but the overwhelming, can't control myself tears seem to be fewer and farther in between. I was just spending some time rereading the events leading up to their birth, the delivery and some more from the days following their birth and I was blown away by how much I had already forgotten. It was such a blessing to reread all of your comments the Lord has really used them to minister to me these past 8 months.

I really liked what my blogging friend Emily said"Hard days will come and sorrow will, too... but it will never, ever outweigh the joy of having known your sweet girls." Which is so true, I am so thankful that we got to spend so much time with our babies. I will always love and miss them!
