Baby #4

This picture is for you sis!
We went for our first scan while in South Africa and it was amazing! You would think that fourth time round you'd be used it and kind of nonchalant. Unbelieveable miracle. To hear the little heartbeat and to see our tiny baby moving around was wonderful. We are so thankful to the Lord for blessing us with this little baby. The scan showed that the baby looks normal, the weight is good and the heartbeat is fine too. We asked about the rubella scare and our midwife was so encouraging. She told us that only God knows and it is only Him whom we can trust. She also, as well as the doctor, suspect that because of my innoculation in 2006 that I should've been immune. We eagerly await the arrival of our newest Biedebach.
I am officially 20 weeks (half way) according to the scan and expect to deliver June 12th. The kids and I will need to be down in South Africa by the first week of May. The airlines will not allow me to fly later than 35 weeks. If you remember, please continue to pray for a healthy baby, pregnancy and smooth delivery. We'd appreciate that.

Yeah for a healthy baby! We'll continue to pray for all 6 of you, and look forward to meeting this little one (girl? that's my guess!) in the fall.
