August 5, 2011 was Brad and Avery's (our now 11 year old) birthday. Yes, she was born on his birthday! I headed in to see my endo and he decided to run a full panel on me to determine what could be going on. Of course this included a urine test, blood work, etc. He came back in after a while and shocked me with the news. He said, "Well, good news, you're not dying and everything will be fine in a few months." I immediately knew what he meant and about fell off the examination table! After I told Brad the news (he was elated with joy) we decided to give Avery a special birthday card. It read, You're A Big Sister! She was so excited, it was precious and she is going to be a great big sister.
I saw my ob/gyn and it was determined I was already almost 9 weeks along!

Tomorrow I will be 17 weeks. I had a doctor appt. with my high risk doctor Tuesday and they were able to determine the sex of the baby. We are having a gender reveal showdown, so they wrote it down and sealed it in an envelope for our baker. More updates to come!
