34 WEEKS-I MADE IT!

SO THANKFUL to have made it until today!

Today is the milestone I "needed" to stay pregnant until to be able to have the baby with my OB. 
If I would have delivered before today, I would have had to go to THE BIG CITY!
WHEW!

I FEEL HUGE!!!!!
Also HUGELY BLESSED!

MINI ME at 34 Weeks~Boobs and all!

I see my Dr. weekly now. My latest 24 hour urine last week wasn't the best. My protein went up from 170 to around 500. My Dr. says that she expects it to rise as the stress on my body from baby gets worse. I do my next one on Tuesday. I had an NST (non stress test) yesterday and the baby looked great. I was having a few small contractions according to the strip but didn't feel a thing.

Baby is still breech. She weighed 4lb 5 ozs over a week ago so she's getting bigger.Thank you Lord for getting us this far! She rolls all over in my belly all of the time and I KNOW I will miss that!

My church is continuing to provide meals while my The Captain is away working-SUCH A BLESSING! I don't know HOW I would do it without those meals! I am hoping he only has to go to work ONE MORE TIME before he is off for a while.

I basically lay around ALL DAY LONG and feel like doing nothing more at this point. Bed rest STINKS PEOPLE! But its worth it! It's tough not to be able to go to the pool, go outside-basically do NOTHING with the kids but indoor activities while The Captain is away.  It's just SO HARD to plan my kids summer when I have NO IDEA when baby girl will be here-camps, Bible schools, swimming lessons etc... are all on hold!

THE NAME-We have also changed Nineya's name which only cost us $$$$$$$$$$. I had ordered SEVERAL personalized items with her name on it already which I have re-ordered!

Hard to believe-We will be meeting our precious miracle girl soon-GOD IS GOOD!

Praise God! This is so awesome. You look wonderful. I know that bed rest is hard but trust me, its all worth it. I was on bed rest for 10 weeks. Not fun but I got healthy babies. You can totally do this. :)

Praising the Lord for your continued health. Bed rest is no fun. I have been on modified bed rest for 12 weeks now and hate it. Praying for your family!!
