Last time I shared here about my pregnancy, I talked about how much of a roller-coaster ride I have been on over the past couple of months. Well, I’m happy to report today that things are finally settling down some!
My strange bleeding issues were identified by a great OB as a non-threatening quirk of my placenta, and have since completely resolved. I can’t tell you what a relief that was! My energy level is slowly rising back up, and the nausea is pretty much gone. (Yay, I can make dinner again!)
For those of you who know me on Facebook, you already know that I had a bit of a “falling out” with my midwife. And I couldn’t be more at peace about that! In fact, I believe God is leading us toward unassisted birth, and we are prayerfully moving in that direction. This is something we take very seriously and are doing with eyes wide open. I’m ordering a fetoscope (a special stethoscope for hearing the unborn baby’s heartbeat) and will be watching my weight, fundal height, and blood pressure. Don’t worry, if things don’t seem right, I’ll take myself in to an OB!
And on an exciting note, we had an ultrasound last Saturday – we’re having another boy!!! I’m very excited (as is Mark) – we both thought another boy would be the perfect addition to our family, and apparently that is what God had in mind too!
Anyway, on that happy note, I’m going to end this little update and wish you and yours a happy holiday season! May your special days be blessed and full of love!
