Waiting for Baby

I haven't posted much about this lately, but my sister has been going to a neonatal specialist for the last few weeks. The doctors are concerned that Isabella isn't growing the way she should be. They thought they were going to take the baby earlier this week, but decided to wait to run more tests this morning. I'm waiting on the phone call right now. If they decide to take the baby, I'm on my way to the hospital. I watched Melly come into this world, and there is no way in hell I'm going to miss this one.
Of course, this is one of the busiest days at the office I've had in a while. Figures.
Naturally, my sister and brother-in-law are freaking out, because he scheduled his leave from Afghanistan to coincide with the birth of the baby, which wasn't supposed to be for another month. Now, not only did he miss her pregnancy, but he's going to miss the birth too!! Can't anyone in my family ever catch a break?? [insert violin music here]
Here is the last ultrasound they took of Bella. These are the lastest in 3D pictures. I cannot believe how clear it is - you can even see her eyelashes. I told my sister that she looks like she's going to come out fighting because she's got her muscle flexed. WAY TOO COOL!!!
Keep your fingers crossed!
I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend!
Faith, Hope, & Love - Jen

Isn't it amazing what the ultrasound pictures look like today? When I had one done over 20 years ago, we could hardly tell what the shapes were.... and they only gave one (which insurance wouldn't cover). I would have loved to have had more... but had to wait till Chris was born to find out his gender.

Best of luck to your sister... and I hope all is well for her. She is dealing with a lot of stress, and doesn't need this added to it.

Have a great weekend yourself!... and don't worry, many prayers will be said for Isabella.

That is an amazing picture. I don't think that I have ever seen one with that much facial detail. That is brilliant.

I hope that everything works out great!!
