Baby update

As you might have known from my previous posts (or, if you noticed the "Mike Jr. countdown timer") above, my wife is pregnant and we're expecting the baby around the end of the year.

She recents had a quad marker screen test. According to WebMD:
The quad marker screen, similar to the triple marker screen, is a blood test that provides a woman and her health care provider with useful information about her pregnancy. The test predicts the likelihood of a certain problem occurring. It does not diagnose the problem. For example, cholesterol screening determines a person's risk for heart disease based on the amount of cholesterol in the blood, but it does not necessarily mean that the person has heart disease. The quad marker screen determines if a woman is at higher or lower risk of carrying a baby with a birth defect.
Thank the Lord that all results were normal!

In about two weeks, she'll have another ultrasound, and hopefully we'll find out if the baby is a boy or a girl. We decided early on that we wanted to know.

We're also planning on getting a 4D Ultrasound. Don't forget to check out the videos there, they really are amazing!
