Sara had her 19 week ultrasound this past week. The OB said that the baby looks very healthy and is growing on schedule. So far, the chemo has had no apparent affect on the baby (or the momma).
We had been contemplating on waiting until birth to find out the sex of the baby. I was convinced that we were having a boy, but then lots of people told Sara that they thought she was going to have a girl. We decided to find out this past week and are going to have a BABY GIRL!
It's a good thing that we found out. Now, we (I) have 4 months to mentally prepare that we're having a daughter. We're excited to know and now have to think of some girl names (we had the boy name picked out months ago).
Please pray that the baby would continue to be strong and unaffected through the remaining treatments and that Sara does not go into premature labor (possible risk with chemo).
As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him. --Psalms 103:13
