Isn't he just the sweetest little thing you've ever seen? This little guy is so very loved and prayed for by so many. Through all the complications this pregnancy has had, I always remember that my loving Heavenly Father is never taken by surprise. He is holding our baby and I in His tender hands. His eye is upon our son day and night...and He see's Him even more clearly than an MRI scan does! :)
I almost didn't get my test done today! I spent the morning as usual (overseeing the chores and homeschooling). Benjamin helped me make a big pot of spaghetti and some green beans for lunch and I had to leave just in time to miss eating it.
I got to the hospital around 12:30 pm to check in and was in radiology by 1 pm. After waiting for about a half and hour, the technician called me back to tell me there was a problem. She said that in her 20 years of doing MRI scans, she had never had an order like mine...to scan a placenta. She was uncertain how to even take the shots. She had asked the head radiologists in that department and he told her that he had never had to read a scan to determine placenta accreta/increta/percreta either and they just thought it was above their area of expertise.
She recommended that I get this done in Davis (at the hospital where I had my level 2 u/s).
She was very kind and sorry for the time I spent waiting which I didn't mind a bit (it was nice for mommy to have a bit of quiet time to herself after watching all the children by myself all week; and the children were having so much fun back at home with Daddy).
I called my doctor on the way out to my car to let them know that I had go in for the MRI but was told they were unable to do it. My doctor told me to just wait at the hospital and he would call me back.
About 10 minutes later, the doctor's office called and told me to go back to radiology. So I did and the lady explained that the doctor called and told her what shots to take and that (unknown to her), they have an evening radiologist team that are specialized that will be and are capable of reading the scans.
I had to drink a few cups of water and wait a bit (as they needed a full bladder and I had stopped by the rest room on my way out of the hospital as I thought was wasn't able to get the test.) . Finally we made our way to the MRI machine.
The test took around 45 minutes. For those of you who are not familiar with the test, you simply lay down on this table which slides into a tube. You have to lie perfectly still and they give you some ear plugs as the test is quite loud (sounds like lots of banging, shooting, and clicking). The worst part for me was laying on my back for that long.
Once the test started, little guy began to kick up a storm...the first few shots she got were all blurry and she looked in at me through the window thinking maybe I was scared or moving around. She was perplexed for a few moments as I was laying perfectly still before she realized it was the baby doing all the moving! :)
After about 15 minutes, I fell asleep...she finished the test, woke me up, and laughed saying, "You have to be a pregnant mom of 11 children to be tired enough to fall asleep during an MRI."
She was so sweet and showed me all the shots and even gave me a cd of them all. The shot posted here is as if my tummy were a glass window and you were looking straight at me and I was facing you. Baby's tush and back are right on top of the placenta (that grey and black spotted thing at the bottom below the baby). His legs are to the left of me and his head to the right.
The tech was unable to give me much information as to what the scan showed as she has had no experience with this. She said the doctors would come in later to read it and then I can call my doctor later this week or next for the results.
I had to stop by a couple stores on my way home and as I was in the baby section picking up some diapers for Eliseo, it suddenly occured to me that this baby will be here before I know it. Of course, we hope a bit later than sooner, but all the same, he'll be coming soon...and I don't have even one baby thing here with me for him. So I bought a pack of onesies and a couple of sleepers and a couple receiving blankets. Now I feel a bit more prepared! :)
Daniel took the oldest 6 boys to watch a basketball game at my parent's church. And the girls and I need to clean up the house (the house LOOKS like everyone had LOTS of fun with Daddy today!).
Thank you for praying...please keep praying! I know the Lord is hearing you and you are all such a blessing to our family.


  1. That is the most amazing in utero baby pic i have ever seen. Look at those lungs on him! awesome.

  2. Well, it's a good thing you have no choice but to have this baby by C-section, 'cuz he seems to be heading the wrong direction to reach the outside world! :):) What a beautiful picture of his perfect little body! Thank you for sharing that with us, Jaynee! Praying that the time will pass quickly for you, until the day that God has ordained for him to be born...and you will be cradling him safely in your arms! I'm guessing that you won't be needing to call your doctor for the MRI report....he will be calling you as soon as he gets it! :)

  3. Ahhh, what a neat picture! I'm so glad everything went OK, and that you got a catnap to boot! :)

  4. Praying for good (no, GREAT!) news! Yay for the cute little Lockwood baby!!

  5. Very cool picture! I pray that you get some good news soon. Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. We pray for you all on a daily basis confident that the grace of the Lord is sufficient for your great need. His strength is made perfect in our weakness.
    Psa 91:1-6 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. (2) I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." (3) For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. (4) He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. (5) You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, (6) nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

  7. Oh how good it is to see that little guy!! He looks good :-)
    I'm so glad all went well and the Lord worked it all out ahead of time for you to have your test done in Redding.

    Will you be having a baby shower?


  8. My whole family is praying for you and the baby boy. We appreciate the time it takes to update everybody.

  9. Baby looks like he's having no problem growing in there. So sweet. Praying for you and your family.

  10. Do you have anymore needs for this baby that we could do an internet baby shower and mail things to you? Let us know. :)

  11. What a beautiful picture! I'm praying daily.

  12. Wow. What a neat picture. I am praying all the results come back great and that you are doing well. I continue to pray for you and little man!!


  13. Dear Jaynee...and family,
    Just wanted you to know that the Fleming Tribe here in TN are "crying out for you" multiple times daily. Several times I have thought about picking up the telephone to call you since you are in the states now...but each time something else has come up. So I will wait for the RIGHT time. Is the address up at the top the one that works for you now? You may email me at fiberdyn@volstate.net...IF you get a moment. Meanwhile, I can't tell you how much your posts have encouraged our family (along with your sweet, godly attitude in the midst of the storm). May God richly bless all of you...especially you and your dear, brave-hearted husband. You are shining brighter and brighter in reflecting HIS glory. Thank you for the update and glorious picture of your "fearfully and wonderfully made" little one.
    Grace and Peace,
    Ruth (for all of us)

  14. What an incredible picture of your little one who is moment by moment being knit together by His Father's hands!

  15. WOW! What a neat picture! Glad to hear that things are looking good so far and pray that there is more good news to come!

    Can I ask you to say some prayers for a fellow homeschooling family? Laurie Jackson collapsed Thursday morning while homeschooling her older children and she stopped breathing. Her oldest is only 6 or 7 (he called his dad's cell phone, he was out-of-town and his dad told him to call 911) and the youngest is only about 9 months. She was pronounced dead at the hospital and is leaving behind her husband and 4 (four) young children. This family needs all the prayers that they can get!

    Thanks and God bless!

  16. I'm so glad you were able to get the MRI done the day it was originally scheduled! When this baby boy is older, what a special souvenir for him those scans will be--showing how loved and cared for he was!

    Praying for you and your family as always!!

  17. Oh Jaynee, what a little sweetie. I am glad everything is moving along as well as it is. You and your family are *so* loved by so many.

  18. Jaynee, thanks for the comment, I commented back to you over at my blog (under comments)...

    What a neat picture- we continue to trust God for/with you and know that He's got this whole thing planned and a purpose in it. That pic is AWESOME! I bet you can't wait to meet your little sweetie!! :)

    Love you!

  19. Jaynee,

    How wonderful it is every time I check, to see that sweet boy has stayed put for another week!

    I know I've been MIA for a while now, but I am still praying for you and yours, and always anxiously awaiting your updates.

    What a testimony your absolute trust in God's plan is to us all.
    Why don't we trust him more? He is so faithful!

    By the way, the number of handsome young men in your household is absolutely unfair! You are so very blessed!

    In Him,

  20. What an amazing picture of your newest little guy! Praying for his continued growth and safety!

  21. Praying for you in Virginia, hoping all is well this week?
