30 Weeks and Counting!
I've yet to post any kind of pregnant pictures (well, not having a camera didn't help) so, here it is - me at 30 weeks. I think I'm bigger than this picture portrays, but you get the idea:)
This pregnancy is going very well so far. At this point with Alexa I had severe swelling and she was born about a week later. The doctors are positive and anticipate delivering around 39 weeks. I currently have weekly doctor visits to monitor things and will have another ultrasound in 2 weeks to check the baby's growth (no, he does not have a name yet).
I know we have continued prayers offered in our behalf and I am so thankful. Whatever the outcome I know it is the Lord's will and completely in His hands. Greatfully, so far, he has answered those prayers. There have been moments that the fear of what could happen takes over, but then I remember who's in control and a peace comes over me.
We are all excited for this new addition, especially Alexa. We keep the ultrasound pictures on the fridge and tonight she got them down and said, "This is my brother. I love him." This made me wonder if she remembers him. She's going to be a great big sister - she's definitely got the bossy part down to a "T" as we've all been experiencing lately.
Until next time (and who knows when that will be since I've exceeded your expectations this month already:).
