And the doctor said…


The baby is growing perfectly and we found a perfectly strong heartbeat today!!!!

Thank you for your prayers, they worked!!!!!


  1. great news!!! I’ve been reading your blog for a while now but just figured out how to comment!!!

  2. I believe in the power of prayer and will continue to say some for an uneventful pregnancy- you’ve already had enough excitement to last the 9 months!!!!

  3. oh my Goodness!!
    God is Great.
    Congratulations to you, Nathan, and Owen.
    You ALL certainly deserved a healthy pregnancy. We love you guys.

  4. Congrats!!! I was thinking that last week was too early to detect a heartbeat. The baby need to grow a little more and sure enough your baby did. I was so worried for you guys but glad you took care of yourself this weekend. Enjoy your pregnancy, the weather should be getting cooler. Thanks for replying to my post on the CP groups re: Children’s Hospital of LA. I was debating what to do re: my daughter seeing a doctor @ that location and you were the only one that responded. Also, I asked about support groups in the San Gabriel Valley area. I haven’t found any around my area. I think you mention a mom in Pasadena who has a CP child.

    Thanks for keeping us posted. I read your blog on a daily basis. Take care and I am excited for you guys!!!

  5. Yipee!

  6. Hurray!!!
    You are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Take care.
