It's a....

Girl!!

EXCITEMENT
We are so excited to announce that little Audrey Ann will be the next addition to our family. We had our ultrasound yesterday and were able to see our little angel for over an hour and a half. We actually had a new tech do the ultrasound and then had another tech come in who basically re-did the ultrasound to double-check everything.
Audrey looks GREAT!!

We were able to see all her organs, legs, arms, fingers and toes. Even though this is our third baby, I can honestly say, God never ceases to amaze me with the pure awesomeness of his majesty and ability to create life. It was incredible. They were not able to get us a profile picture of her face (total bummer) because she was laying with her head down and backwards for most of the ultrasound - and though they said she was moving ALOT, rocking back and forth, she refused to flip all the way over.

THE NAME
We've been looking at the name Audrey for a while, but finally settled on it last week. We really wanted to settle on our names before the ultrasound so that nothing that we saw or found out would affect the name that we would choose.

Audrey means Noble Strength and Ann is my grandmother's name (though her name is spelled Anne) it means Grace, which was important to us.

PRAYER REQUEST
During the ultrasound they found an abnormality - unrelated to Audrey (she looks perfect) but relating to my amniotic sac. They are not completely sure what it is yet, so I would rather refrain from making any assumptions on here yet, but we are scheduled for another ultrasound with a specialists in 2 weeks (November 20th) to try to determine what exactly they found and what the risks are associated with it.
We remain confident that God is in control and that we have nothing to fear. Though our minds wondered a little after we found out, it didn't take long for the Lord to calm our fears and help us realize what an opportunity this was for us to dwell in His presence and in the shadows of His wing! It's a great place to be.

I'll keep you all updated as we find out more information.

You know my prayers are with you and will continue to be, but God has given me a real peace about our new little princess and I know (no matter what the outcome) that everything is going to be just fine. God is good all the time; All the time God is good. I Love You all!!

So excited. Audreyanna was a name we were considering for Mercea, so of course I love it!

Sorry to hear about the abnormality. Keep me posted.
