Okay! Ignore my puffy hand! Dave made it safely back from NYC but super late, so K and I were drawing on our hands! I am on whatever kind of medical rest is categorized under watching a 2 year old. Sometimes the rules are bent and we draw on things we aren't supposed to. Hey! Whatever works!!! :)
I got the call first thing on Tuesday morning that I passed my tests regarding my kidneys etc. I am still healthy in that department. My blood pressure, however, is staying high. As long as I'm laying/resting/sitting it stays down but the second I get up...it spikes. This was exactly what I dealt with while pregnant with Kennedy, but much earlier and it got worse and worse.
I have been drinking lots of water with lemon and resting as much as I can. Bed rest with a 2 year old is nearly impossible, but I'm
so blessed that Kennedy has been super independent in her play and an angel baby! Prayers answered! I take her to and from
school and that's wonderful because it wears her out and she comes home and naps. Plus, I have had so many great friends offer support and help. My mother, God love that woman, has been burning rubber 2 1/2 hours between our towns where we live to come and help. We are very blessed!
I was a lot worse off with Kennedy, so I am just thankful we have made it this far and are doing so well!!! That said, we go back to the doctor Monday for the same tests and hopefully we will get a better idea of when Wyatt may arrive. I'm hopeful to make it to 39 weeks. That may be unrealistic, but I'm hopeful! Right now I'm doing well. I was already on bed rest for many many weeks and in and out of the hospital due to pre-eclampsia during this stage of pregnancy with K, so I consider this to be doing great! :)
We are so appreciative for your thoughts and prayers. Just keep praying for us! I know God has it all in His hands.
Besides this pregnancy stuff...we've been celebrating here! Dave turned another year older!
Kennedy got to sing happy birthday to daddy once this weekend at my parents party for him.
Then she got to sing again to him last night! She was sooo sweet singing..
She even helped blow out the candles. We are both so thankful for the best daddy and husband that he is to us! I pray his year is filled with blessings.
Besides daddy Dave's birthday, I was excited to get a new set of wheels!
Love my mom's way of resting. Stick my big butt in a wheel chair and wheel me around shopping! :) I mean really? How hilarious?
Lastly....just wanted to say that I think K is going to be the BEST big sister!
My friend Stephanie from A Blue-eyed Boy met a Brown-eyed Girl stopped by and brought her little man. Isn't he precious? Kennedy listened so well and tried to help out. It was adorable! I pray she loves her brother as much as she loves Houston!
Well, I'm gone to move from the couch to the table to eat a grilled cheese that I'm way too excited about! :)
More blog posts coming soon...(and maybe eventually a baby!)
