Baby Adyson

32 weeks Posted by Picasa
Today was our BIG 32 week ultrasound! The picture I posted shows her face and eyes. If you look at the bottom you can see her hand on her chin. We also got a short video of the ultrasound, which is amazing. We got a very close look at her nose and upper lip and I have to say it looks just like me. Also, she has hair! We could see her hair on the ultrasound.

On another note you can tell by the title that we are naming her Adyson. However, we can't decide on the spelling. It will be Adyson, Addyson, or Addison. Who knows what we will decide on. I am leaning on Adyson and Phil wants Addyson.

Also, something Phil and I have decided to do is cord banking. This is where they will take Addy's stem cells from her umbilical cord and store them in a lab in case she or I will ever need them. The High Risk OB we spoke to today as well as our OB recommended we do this with my history of Hodgkin's. If my Hodgkin's ever came back I would need a stem cell transplant in which they might be able to use those stem cells. Also, my risk of Leukemia is slightly higher due to chemotherapy for the Hodgkin's. Addy's stem cells could also be used to help her as well. This is really something Phil and I can't afford but we feel at the advice of our doctors this is something we have to do.

It is amazing that 2 years ago I faced the threat of death and now Phil and I are facing a new life. We are so excited words cannot even express it. God is our Hope for the Future.
