Baby Bean Acker

Today was my 12 week check-up. Everything sounded great. The baby's heart beat was so strong and loud. We really liked our new doctor. She was recommended to us from a friend and I would recommend her as well, atleast so far. We talked a lot about Gabi and what we will do to be prepared. We ruled out all test that have any risks of losing the baby. Like I have said before, it is just not that important to us to know, we'd rather have a baby than an answer, which sometimes you don't even get. We are leaving the unknown in God's hands, I'd like to think that Gabi is helping her baby brother or sister as well! She is the perfect little angel, and I know how hard she will fight for him/her. I gotta tell ya we are getting the feeling it is a boy. Things are just different this time around. The way I feel, the food I crave, and of course because we have all pink girlie stuff it will be a boy:) Oh well, just means more shopping, as if I wouldn't do that anyways!

Our next appointment with Dr. Meltzer is Dec. 4th. On Dec. 10th we have scheduled a level 2 ultrasound. At that point they will look very closely at the baby's measurements. The level 2 is where we saw everything with Gabi for the first time. If there are any concerns with the baby's heart then we will schedule a fetal echocardiogram, and they may just do that due to our history. We will still do the AFP blood tests, but that is typical in any pregnancy. Other than that we will just leave the rest up to the good Lord above. On the 10th we should be able to see the sex of the baby. Jason still wants it to be a surprise, but I just don't think I can wait. I am no good at surprises and he cannot tell me no, so if I was a bettin woman, I'd say I will get my way:)

Jason got to go to the appointment and that was so great! I heard at the first appointment, but for him and I to hear it is exactly what we needed. Hopefully he will be able to go to the appointment on the 10th, I will definitely need him that day. And he will drive himself crazy if he's it will be best for both of us!

Thank you all for your continuous love and prayers!
Hugs to all!!!

I'm glad to hear everything went well too! Ha! As if I wouldn't being the grandfather. MeeMaw and I don't care if it's a boy or girl either. Gabi taught us that love is infectious. "Don't sweat the small stuff" is a good motto. We'll love him/her either way. I'm sure Grandma will be more than happy to go shopping with you to get some blue stuff if you have to. :-)

Take care of yourself and my son and grandson/daughter. We love you ALL!

MeeMaw & PaPa

It is always good to hear the heartbeat. It just makes it that much more real. I am so happy to hear everything is going well for you all. You guys are always in our thoughts and prayers. About finding out if you are having a girl or boy...don't buy any clothes until you do. I bought girl clothes with Kaden and found out he was a boy, well then I bought just one boy outfit for this little one and found out that she was a girl. I kind of figured that would happen : ). Well, I pray all continues to go well. Take care,Amy

How exciting!!! I know it had to feel so good to hear that strong and healthy heartbeat. I can't wait to hear the news from your appt on the 10th. I hope you are adjusting to Indiana, so did your time change this past weekend? ha ha Let me know when you are going to be near KC in December. I definitely want to try to meet up if possible. Love and miss you!

Oh I can't wait to find out what your having. I was never able to wait either. Glad things are looking well otherwise.

With my last pregnancy, our perinatologist went ahead and did a fetal echo just because of our Gabi's history. So, I bet you'll get one even if the level II is okay.

I'm so glad to hear that everything went well with your new Dr. Isn't hearing the heartbeat amazing? With all the issues I had in early pregnancy, that was always the most nerve racking part. I can't wait to hear if baby Acker is a boy or girl. =) As always, keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I miss you & love ya lots!! Take care.

Hi Micah! This is Cathy Birdsell. Remember me? :) I am so sorry I missed the reunion at Valley. If I would have known everyone was going to be there I would have found a way to make it. I received an e-mail from Jen about this blog and well to tell you the truth I have been sitting here since 7pm and I have read the entire thing. I have laughed, cried, and laughed some more. Your daughter, Gabi, is so beautiful and amazing in so many ways and I never even met her. I am so sorry for you and your families loss. I am sure she is watching down on you and now truely is you and your families personal ANGEL. Also, I am so happy to hear of your pregnancy! Congrats Girl! And your move to Indy. I am only a few hours away from there (Chicago suburbs). My email is, if you ever want to chat I would love to hear from you. I will keep you and your family in my prayers! Take care Micah,
