I am now 20 weeks.  Wow!  People are definitely starting to notice around here; although, I can still fit in to a couple of my non-maternity pants.  I felt Grace for the first time last night.  She gave a mighty kick that surprised me so much I jumped up off the couch.  I haven’t been able to feel any small movements yet, but I sure felt that!

At this point I should have gained about 10 lbs but instead I have lost 2.  Sierra ordered me whey protein shakes that I have to drink twice a day in order to bulk up.  The powder hasn’t come in yet, but I’m not really looking forward to these drinks.  I’m not too worried since Grace’s estimated weight at our last ultrasound was on target for how big she should be right now and I’m sure that when we get home I will make up for lost weight.  :-)

We had an ultrasound last Thursday at the Mother Baby Hospital here.  The ultrasound machine is quite old and doesn’t give a very big or very clear picture, so we went to a private clinic yesterday for another ultrasound.  Both doctors told us (one 60% and one 80%) that the baby is a girl!

Her name is Grace Elizabeth after my two great-grandmothers on my Mom’s side.  Eden has taken to calling her Little Gracie.  It was very fun to see her on the ultrasound.  Yesterday we were able to see a lot of clear pictures and hear her heartbeat.  Her limbs were all there, her brain looked good and her spine was perfect.  We even got to see a quick image of her cute little face!

We are so glad that everything is going well and that she is healthy and we’re very excited to have another daughter!

It’s hard to believe that I am already 16 weeks!  This pregnancy seems to be going much faster than Andy’s, probably because we are so busy.  I’m feeling pretty good these days.  I sleep every chance that I get and avoid beef as much as possible.  I haven’t felt the baby move yet, although I keep telling it to jump and leap so that I can feel it.  We have our next ultrasound on Sept. 5 and as long as the baby cooperates we should be able to find out if we’re having a boy or a girl.  I’m anxious to know so that I can start calling “it” by name and make plans for the nursery.

Ben, Eden, Andy and I are very excited to let you all know that soon we will have another Wolfe in the family!  Baby #3 is due January 28, 2012!  I have been much more sick than I was with Andy and have struggled with my limited food options here when certain things sound good to me.  I’m now 13 weeks and still can’t stand the sight of raw meat or the smell of meat cooking.  I have been able to eat chicken again over the last couple of weeks as long as someone else prepares it.  We’re all hoping that I feel better soon!

Eden is very excited and has already told us several times that she is sick because she has a baby in her belly.  She thinks the baby is a boy and likes to pat my tummy and give it kisses.  Andy doesn’t really care, but if you ask where the baby is he will pull up his shirt and show you his belly.

We have had a couple of ultrasounds already and everything looked good.  We’re planning on having another one in a few weeks so that we can find out if we’re having a boy or a girl.

This puts a lot of hiccups in our plans for coming home from Kenya.  We really need to leave by November in order to be home before my third trimester but it might be hard to get the visa for Eden to travel back to the US by that time.  Please pray with us that we can all go home together in October or November and for an easy pregnancy and healthy baby!

Well, the magical day has come…and gone. The day that we had waited for and planned for passed uneventfully for us. February 18 was my due date and Andy apparently decided that he didn’t care that Ben and I were ready and waiting for him. Instead I have been scheduled for an induction on Saturday morning. We are to present ourselves on the Labor and Delivery floor at the hospital at 6:30 Saturday morning, things will start rolling, and Andy will hopefully make his debut sometime Saturday afternoon. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers and we will be sure to post an update and pictures as soon as possible!
