Well I have 5 more weeks and I am getting nervous about Jaron's arrival. I am worried he won't be able to drink right and they will want to keep him in the hospital for a while or something. The doctor in Atlanta said as soon as he is drinking good to bring him in to get molded for his NAM. And that's another thing. I am worried that I won't do the NAM right. I guess they are going to show me how to tape it on and stuff. I don't know, I guess I'm just paranoid. I want to do what's best for him and I don't want to panic about things. Oh and there's one more thing that just kills me to think about. I can't imagine not focusing all my time with Jacob. I mean I know having two kids will require more attention but Jaron is going to need extra attention and it breaks my heart to think of Jacob not getting all of me. I mean he is so precious and I don't want to put him on the back burner. I hope God will give me grace through this next year. Pray for me.

I went back to the specialists today at 3:30 to get another look at Jaron. They put me in the 3D room to see if we could see his cleft a little better. But unfortunately he is head down and face down with his arms in his face. He wouldn't budge. I haven't drank any coke today or eaten any chocolate so he hasn't been all that active. So we wiggled and jiggled my belly trying to get some movement but he wouldn't budge. So they did they're measurements and checked everything again. He is approx 4 lbs. 7 oz. (average). He will gain approx. 1/2 lb. every week until birth. So he is going to be about 7.5 lbs. I hope he comes quicker than Jacob. :-) They said there is no need for me to come back, unless I want to for reassurance. I mean the bigger he gets the more cramped he will be and harder to see his face. They said everything else looks normal. No other abnormalities that they can see. So I did not reschedule. Thank God there is nothing else wrong. Well since he wouldn't budge they didn't get any thing good enough to print for me so I don't have a new ultrasound to post like I said I would. Let's see maybe I'll post one from before. Thanks for reading. I'll try to get some pictures on here of him shortly after he is born. Keep us in your prayers.
