Since I'm pretty honest...

 It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. (Deuteronomy 31:8)
You should probably know that my doctor's appt. did not go as planned. 
I really feel like the Lord is taking AG and I through a time of growth and strengthening right now.
Today I headed back to the doctor for my 11 wk checkup and they did an ultrasound and saw a healthy heartbeat of 164.  We saw the arms and legs moving and it was great. By we, I mean my friend Catherine and I, as my hubby is currently unavailable.
When the midwife came in to talk with me, she told me they saw a possible problem on the head. It looks a little flat in back. They said it could be the way it is positioned or it could be a problem. She didn't want to tell me too much in case it turns out not to be a huge problem. She is sending me to a specialist tomorrow (hopefully).  I should find out in the morning when I am going. Hopefully tomorrow I will have some answers as to what the problem is or could be.
I am sharing this with you all because I know you will pray for me and for the baby. I know you will support me should I find out news I'm not happy with. I know you will rejoice with me if it is the wonderful news we all want to hear.  I know you will pray that God's peace will reign over me and I wouldn't be overwhelmed and upset. I know that God is good and he is in control. If it is his time to take the baby, I know it's not mine to begin with, but I am praying for life, as we were several weeks ago. I ask that you would pray for the same.  I have spoken with Brandon and he is feeling a lot of pain to be away during all of this. He hates missing things and not sharing in this with me. He was so excited about the ultrasound and so bummed with this news. Please also pray for his heart during all of this.
Thanks for your love and support.
I know I am choosing to share this with all of blog world, but honestly, you all know the good news, so I feel like you should know the other news too. Hopefully and prayerfully better news will come. I know lots of you are excited for me, so I know many of you will share in praying for me through this. Like I said, FACEBOOK doesn't yet know, and I'm glad :)
