Not the best belly pic but this dress is SUPER COMFY!
I LOVE DENIM!
Here is my new "BLING" until my old ring fits again.
Compliments of EBAY...$7.99 including shipping.
I have tried to "lay low." Went to church yesterday and that flat WORE ME OUT! I also took the kids to AWANA at church and dropped them off last night (I usually stay and volunteer) and went to a friends house and layed down for the 2 hours they were there. I got home and my BP was 170/102 so I quick layed on my left side and elevated my feet and it was back to normal in a bit.
The hubby did ALL my grocery shopping this past week for the first time-he did AWESOME! Only forgot one thing!
Craving....ROOT BEER! Doing KEGELS LIKE CRAZY! What else have I got to do?
BABY GIRL loves to get up and kick her buns off around 5am every morning :) SO SWEET!
I have one reality for ya'all... DISCHARGE! EWWWW, it's really picked up in the last few weeks-to the point where a panty liner is necessary-glad THE BOOK explains it all or I would have thought something was wrong with me.
I have yet to experience any stretch marks on my belly and my belly button is still an "INNIE" for now.
This is my first week flying solo without my man around while on "LOCK DOWN" status. Counting the days until my man gets home!
I got my protein results back! It went from 856 down to 182-THANK YOU LORD!
I am still on pre bed rest status though. I am not to do anything much. Which is just fine with me as long as I can keep this sweet baby girl inside and growing!
My hubby has been FABULOUS and has me on LOCK DOWN! I appreciate his love and care of me and the baby so much. He has been a total "gem." At his suggestion, all 8 of us took a car ride out last night to get Sonic after dinner. Seeing him be such a fabulous father and husband makes him SO HOT to me :)
I have been swollen since about 5 weeks along-blood pressure related I'm sure. I haven't worn my wedding rings since then. I miss them.....
Thank you so much for all the well wishes and prayers-THEY WORKED!
Each day keeping her "baking" makes me happier and happier!
I FEEL HUGE!!! I LOVE MY BELLY, I love the movement of my sweet girl.
IT'S GETTING HARDER TO...get up off the floor.....wipe my own rear......put on my shoes.....paint my toenails and many others....
I saw the nephrologist last week. He said I am not to the pre-eclampsia stage YET. The big test will be this week. I have several blood tests and another 24 hour urine I start tomorrow. WORST CASE SCENARIO IS, I would have to be on hospital bed rest, deliver early and there (3 hours from home) if my 24 hour urine is up. I have also been referred to a perinatologist...just in case.
The 24 hour urine test is tough because you have to collect all your pee for 24 hours and my appointments are always on Mondays which means I start on Sundays. This means I either haul my pee jug to church in a cooler or stay home. If my hubby is home, we go to church and he helps me with the 6 littles BUT, this week he is gone so I just can't take the stress of hauling 6 kids to church plus my pee jug. It REALLY puts a damper on things!!! Especially since we all LOVE & look forward to going to church each week.
I will let you all know how my appointment goes Monday and OF COURSE will be posting pics or our sweet little miracle girl!
I thank the good Lord for every day that goes by that I can keep my baby girl inside to grow and develop more.
Have a blessed weekend!
I am off to eat a cheeseburger...FULLY LOADED!!! Jalepenos and all!
My husband and I are embarking on the adventure and blessing of embryo adoption! We have never experienced pregnancy together so we are thrilled that God is leading us through this miraculous journey! I have one bio DD that is 19 & we are blessed with 6 adopted children and a fantastic life! I gave birth to our miracle adopted embryo girl on June 14, 2010!
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and WONDERFULLY MADE; your works are WONDERFUL, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. ALL the days ordained for me were written in your book BEFORE ONE OF THEM CAME TO BE!"
