I keep getting LOTS of questions about the baby and when it's going to arrive, how I am feeling, if anything is progressing etc....so instead of responding to all of the facebook messages and wall posts and texts etc, I figured I would post a blog post and give a general update :)
First let me clarify that I REALLY appreciate everyone asking about the baby and me and for all of the prayers. They are so greatly appreciated.
I had a doctors appointment today with my OB/GYN and they did a non stress test on the baby. I was hooked up to two different monitors. One monitored the baby's heart rate and I had a little button I pushed every time he moved, so that the print out knew, and the heart beat spiked every time that he moved. It was really cool to see. He did such a good job and that's what they were looking for. The other monitor monitored contractions. But I didn't have one the whole 30 minutes I was hooked up-which was odd; but not concerning.
Baby is just hanging out in there. I have an appointment with my midwife tomorrow at nine and then, if I am still pregnant, I have another appointment with my Dr on Thursday to basically do a repeat of today.
Soooo hoping baby comes before Thursday!!!
That's just about it! :) My little update. We know this baby will arrive when the Lord wants him/her to. And we are just fine with that.
(btw, I know I said "he" several times through out this post, but we really don't know the gender. It's just easier to type out a "he" or "she"....)
Who knows, maybe my next post (not counting the other posts I plan to do today to get a little caught up) will be about a baby in our ARMS! :) I wouldn't mind! Even though right now it seems like it won't happen (just NO signs except for an occasional contraction :) ), it very well could happen at any time. :)
Have a most blessed week!
