36 Weeks {Pregnancy Update}


Dear Praying Friends,

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Today I am REJOICING at the LORD's countless mercies to me and little man, W. I am 36 and a half weeks pregnant... more pregnant than I ever knew I could be. Seriously, W has nine weeks in utero more than his sister- doesn't that seem like a crazy huge amount?!?

My doctor said she'd be surprised if I made it the full forty weeks {though many people will be laughing and saying "I told you so" if the kid shows up a few days late}, but we are all thrilled that I've made it so far.

We saw the Lord's hand of protection and deliverance once again at work last week. I spent the 4th of 5th of July in the hospital when the right side of my body went numb and tingly, and my vision blurred. Very scary! After a CAT scan, Pre-eclempsia screenings, and consultation with a neurologist, it was determined that I had experienced my first ever migraine. Who knew? We were so thankful that that was all it was!

I've officially been off of bed rest for two weeks. So far no pick up in contractions, and it has been so nice to resume my normal day-to-day activities- picking up my little girl, cooking meals, organizing and tidying our home {my first chance to really "nest"}.

Blessing #2 is more than welcome to join us whenever he sees fit :). I appreciate your continued prayers for a healthy labor and delivery! Will keep you posted.

Love, Rachel
