WOW! So it has apparently been a long time since we have updated our blog! HMMM where to start....
So everyone knows Sandy is clearly preg and were having a girl. Since the last post... We found out that Sandy has had Gestational Diabetes. We have been having it monitored very closely. We have been having ultrasounds weekly and those were great... The ability to watch the baby get bigger monthly inside the tummy has been amazing. She went from one pound to five pounds to seven pounds... Now here are at the end of the preg and she is estimated at 9 pounds and 9 ounces.
We seen our doc and she is an amazing OB. We would never use any other doctor but her... It has been decided that a C-Section will be performed. She will be performing the c-section on Friday, October 30th, 2009.
Once she arrives we will update again and follow with pictures.

Here is one of the pictures of Elizabeth nursey!

Here is a few ultrasound pictures!

This one is Elizabeth Face at 33 weeks...

This is Elizabeth playing with her little toes with her hand at 37 weeks! We love this little girl so much...

Here are a few preg pics of Sandy these were taken at 37 weeks...

More pics will follow after the birth of Elizabeth Anne Manczak-Taft....

It's a Girl!

So one of my best friends told me to update our blog, and it is true we have been lax in the blog updating category here lately. We just realized yesterday that Elizabeth Anne will be here in only 4 months and one week...if she doesn't arrive early since she already weighs a pound and is measuring 9 days ahead of schedule! We are so super excited that it is a girl...though we would have been just as happy with a is just awesome to be having a girl so that my dad FINALLY has a granddaughter after 8 grandsons, and everyone in our family is so super excited. It is also rare that we are having a girl because most IUI babies are boys according to our doctor, so that makes it extra special. We have not gotten the nursery put together yet, but are about to start working on it...we went out and bought tons of cute outfits last week when we found out she is a girl! That was a ton of fun! This weekend we are going to do our registries for our baby showers(Sher's Best friend Stephanie is throwing us one and they are having one for us at my job also). We are so putting EVERYTHING on the registry-especially at Babies R Us because if you don't get the things on your registry after your shower you can go and buy them and save 10%...and we think that we will soon be needing to save every 10% that we can! At any rate we are super excited and hope to post more about the baby soon.

This has also been a very difficult few weeks for us, due to the fact that we found out that Sher's dad has cancer and then the doctors said it is terminal...we are still praying for a miracle and know that everything-especially the timing is in God's hands. Her dad is also super excited that we are having a girl...he said this will be his first granddaughter in 23 years, and he is always telling me to take care of myself and the baby! He is so funny because he is like you should not be carrying that, you should not be doing that and it is so funny and I am always like I am totally fine. Gotta love her dad though because he really cares! He is one of the people out of both of our families who really cares and shows that he cares. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers-there can never be enough prayer!

Anyways I will close this for now and will update hopefully more frequently throughout the next four months. Take care!

Were having a baby!!!

So there will be a long blog coming... But this is something short and sweet..

Sandy is finally pregnant... Were super EXCITED... We have had good results on our blood work...

14 DPO the HCG level was 106
17 DPO the HCG level was 297
23 DPO the HCG level was 3354

Which by the way are pretty good numbers. Our nurse did tell us that they are going up in the right direction. Per the chart that I seen they are right on track. They are doubling like they should be....

We have our first doctor appt on Tuesday 3/10/09 and our first ultrasound...

So it appears that everyone can at least add one more to the #38 family..
