Half-Way There!!

First, we’ve decided on a name!  Noah Cooper.  I love it.  If Hannah had been a boy, his name would have been Cooper, and since we didn’t know that she was our little Hannah until she was born, we called her Cooper for pretty much 9 months.  We knew that we wanted to use the name somehow since it carries so many sweet memories, and it is perfect for his middle name!  I love how it will always be a link between our two children.

I can’t believe I’ve passed the 19 week mark.  Since I know I won’t carry this baby a full 40 weeks, I’m pretty much half-way there.  It’s crazy to think about.  In less than 5 months, we will have a baby at home!!!!!!  I told Zach I wish I could wake up and tomorrow was already April.  I’m so anxious to meet him!  And, as time keeps passing by and I can feel him move more and more, I get more nervous and scared.  But, that’s a post for another day!

Here is Noah’s journey so far!

It’s positive!!!

1 month (5 weeks)

2 months (8 weeks)

3 months (14 weeks)

4 months (16 weeks) and the secret is finally out!!!

17 weeks

18 weeks

19 weeks (excuse my Christmas tree – it looks much better now!)

It’s amazing how quickly the bump (and Noah) is growing.  I feel a lot bigger during this pregnancy than I did with Hannah, but I love having a baby bump again!  Such a wonderful gift 🙂

    You’re beautiful! =o) So happy for ya’ll! Will they induce you at a certain point now? I am so scared bc, if we have another, my Dr said he would do anything (as far as monitoring me and baby) but bc it was a cord accident there isnt anything they can do so I wouldnt be induced (I so wish they would induce me at like 38 weeks ya know?)…just scary.

    • Thanks Ginger! Yes, they’ll induce me somewhere between 37 and 39 weeks. I will also have a lot more monitoring from now until Noah comes. I think I’ll have 1 ultrasound a month for the next 2 months and then at 30 weeks I’ll have an ultrasound, non-stress test, and other testing done at least once a week. After Hannah died, I met with a high-risk specialist to go over my medical records and testing and set up a treatment plan for any future pregnancies. So far my doctors have been so great and very understanding, but it is a really scary process. I would maybe meet with your doctor again and tell him how you feel and that you would be more comfortable being induced even a week early, or search for another practice that would support your decision. I know it’s not an easy road….
