Happy 4th of July

I sincerely hope your day is blessed with friends, family, and love.  I also hope it contains prayers for those who do not know freedom and are waiting with great expectation of God to deliver just that to them.

We're shutting down for the day to spend time as a family. We will see you all again soon, God's will.

Have an amazing day!


An unexpected L&D visit

Hi everyone.  Today I visited my obstetrician's office for my 35 week (technically 34 + 6) appointment.  Everything was going fine, but I mentioned the back pain that had steadily been increasing this week.  The physician's assistant decided she wanted to go ahead and swab me for Group B strep and also run a cervical check just in case.  The cervical check was painful, even more so because my back protested me lying on it.  The cervix was still high and closed, but she was concerned about my discomfort, even though I tried to down play it.  She looked at me at the conclusion of the exam and told me she was sending me to Labor and Delivery immediately and that the hospital would be awaiting my arrival.  Ummm, okay.

Hello July!

Hi everyone!  Wow, it's July!  I honestly was thinking I had a couple of more days left before the change, but I'm not complaining.  I love July.  It's my second favorite month--filled with birthdays, holidays, celebrations, and opportunities for fun.  I am certainly here for all that this month may bring!

A noticeable difference...

Hello everyone! Today, I entered into my eight month of pregnancy according to Babycenter.com. I am now 34 weeks pregnant. I have 6 more weeks of carrying this little one and things are definitely happening in there.
