So here's a little update without the pics...I know, the NEVER happens! So, for those of you who don't know, I am PREGNANT finally! YAY!! I'm actually about 7 months now! Due around April 3rd! We went in for my 20 week ultrasound, back in Nov., with the intention of finding out the sex and walked away just as clueless! Yes, the baby was breech with legs squished behind my pubic bone with the umbilical cord in between the legs, to boot... SO, to prety much sum up my feelings this whole pregnancy thus far, I've been pretty care free and SO not stressed about ANYTHING so far! It's very strange because I would NEVER have seen myself as the "we want it to be a surprise" sorta girl, but even if they do another ultrasound, I don't think I'll want to know even then! Now that we're kinda stuck with not knowing, I'm totally game because I will probably NEVER choose this way in the future...:D
Other than baby news, Ashton is officially HALF WAY done with her chemo!!! YAY!!!! She's been doing GREAT so far and it actually hasn't been all that unbearable. So another half sounds like a BREEZE!!! She has 7 treatments left and 2 more sets of ct scans and x-rays, and will finish by the end of May if we can stay on schedule! Our goal for her past ct scan was to be able to do it without sedation (its my LEAST favorite part..I hate seeing her awake but unresponsive...it just creeps me out..and the recovery is just as tough as her actual chemo) So we prayed, talked, practiced and prepared like CRAZY to have her be comfortable doing the scan without sedation and she DID IT!!!!! I was soooo proud of her!!!! And proud of Dan for being able to keep her calm and confident since I'm not allowed in anymore..I am SO grateful for the full time angels that are with my Ashton girl. She never ceases to amaze me! I can't wait to be done with all of this but I haven't received so many blessings in all my life.
Now the interesting part should be in about 2.5 months when the baby is due (April) and Ashton will still have 2 months of chemo left....My sister is convinced I'm going to go into labor the night before we're supposed to go in for chemo so Dan will drop me off at the hospital and then have to take Ashton downtown for the day! So silly...I've decided there's too many disastrous scenarios that could happen so I'm convinced Heavenly Father has all this timed perfectly and flawlessly, of course, and everything will go so smoothly and stress free! I'm excited to see it all play out!
We are a blessed family, more so than many I feel! I'm not bragging, just aware and grateful! We're excited to see what this new year brings for the Sessions' family!
