Some news ......

Jeff and I have some exciting news to share but we wanted to let Leah do the honors:


Yes, Baby Turnquist #2 is due in late August (8/27 to be exact - and Jeff's birthday is 8/26!)
We have known since mid-December; we had the CVS testing done on 2/10 (Leah's 2nd birthday) and just got the results on Friday.  Baby #2 will not be affected with EB, but will be a carrier.  
(Each pregnancy has a 25% chance of no EB gene being inherited, two 25% chances of getting the EB gene from just 1 parent (carrier), and 25% chance EB genes from both parents and thus, affected).  


And ..................


IT'S 
.

A

(nother)
GIRL!!!!


Needless to say, we are beyond ecstatic!!!  Not to mention relieved, shocked, exhausted from the wait, a wee bit nervous, and of course: THANKFUL!




Here she is waving hello to everyone:






I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of Him.
1 Samuel 1:27

Congratulations! I've been waiting for this news. I'm so happy for you!

Christina said...

Something brought me to your page today and when I arrived [before reading your post], I had a feeling there was a new baby on the way.

I know that sounds weird that I could know that.... but I just wanted to let you know.

Congratulations! As you already know we are expecting our newest little girl at the beginning of June and couldn't be more excited.

We didn't test for the chromosome deletion that Emily has.... we have had very lengthy discussions about it and decided to wait until after the baby is born.

I'd be curious to hear about your decision to test or not. It's all a personal choice....I guess it's a relief to "know" or not. And knowing would also help with possible complications at birth.

Congrats again....YAY....a girl! hehe
