I had a regular dr apt on Thursday my mom and Erik came too! I had an ultra sound done and it showed that Hannah hasn't grown as much as she should and revealed a condition called IUGR (intra uterine growth restriction). This is when the blood flow through the placenta is not good and the dr's really don't know why. She did receive nourishment but not enough to fatten her up. The dr's decided that Hannah would be better outside vs inside. After being induced Hannah showed some signs of distress so they decided to do an emergency c section.

Graduation Weekend!

Erik's graduation weekend was great! Erik's family came up and our best friends came over! Erik got to bring his cap and gown home after his graduation so that we can take some pictures! Since I am on bed rest we had to take the pictures inside. I'm sooo.... proud of him! He graduated from Southern Theological Seminary with his MDiv! My preacher boy! The previous weekend I also graduated with a certificate in Ministry Studies! We've loved it up here in Louisville! We're just waiting and praying to see what God does next in our lives!

Our best friends, Jim and Cheryl , came over and brought all of us pizza to celebrate Erik's graduation! The party was moved to our place since I'm on bed rest with Hannah. They also brought him a cake! We all watched his graduation video as we ate and visited with each other! We love ya'll very much!

The Britts First Blog!

This is my first attempt at a blog! I hope to keep family and friends updated as we bring Hannah Grace into this world! My due date is June 17th, 2009! So, that makes me 35 1/2 weeks now! I've been on bedrest since my appointment last week because I am 1-2cm dilated. The doctors want Hannah to "marinate" (as Aunt Cheryl says!) until at least 37 weeks!

Hannah's had 3 showers! Family and close family friends hosted a shower in Atlanta, GA in March. My work ladies hosted a dinner shower the beginning of April! And some seminary friends hosted a diaper shower the end of April! We are very thankful for the love this little girl already has! She's already a spoiled Southern Belle!

My mom is flying in tomorrow evening to give Erik a break! We all are going to the doctor on Thursday morning. Hopefully this bedrest has encouraged her to stay in a little longer!
