28 Weeks and He Has a Name!
Well, I am 28 weeks today! Woo Hoo! My belly sure is getting huge but that is ok with me. I had my first visit to the Birthing Center yesterday and everything is right on track. I am measuring right where I should be, his heart beat is strong and boy is he an active little one! The midwife was laughing at his antics when she was trying to get his heart rate. He just didn't want to be still. I think I might have my hands full with this little guy. I can't wait to meet him!! He is still in the breech position but he has some time to turn himself, so we are praying that he does. I was VERY impressed with the midwife and I look forward to meeting the other three at my next appointments. She was very informative and answered all my questions as well as educating me on things I didn't even know about yet. I am even more excited about giving birth there now.
My mom has booked her flight for Levi's arrival. Hard to believe he should be coming in less than three months. I am really glad my mom will be here to help with Moriah while I am in labor and afterwards while we get settled into being a family of four. It is such a blessing to have her! She was a huge help when Moriah came. Zack just found out at work that he will get 10 days off when Levi comes. We are thrilled! He didn't get that much time with Moriah (5 days, I think). It will really help us to bond and get into a family rhythm before I am at home alone with two little ones.
Incase you haven't caught on yet, we are naming our little guy Levi Dickenson. We don't have a middle name yet but we are sure he is a Levi. I love that it means united, joined or attached. I am so thrilled that I get to have the privledge to be Levi's mom. I know God has great things instore for him and I get a front row seat! Only 12 weeks to go before we get to see his sweet face.
