~One never knows what one day will hold~

Well...yesterday...we went to my weekly non-stress test and ultrasound for baby and when I sat down for the non-stress test, I started having MAJOR contractions...which the moniter was recording. Then they did the ultrasound and baby looked fine, but I was still having the contractions. So, that office called my midwife who asked me to come in to the hospital for observation. Long story short, we dropped off our kids to my sister, and then ran to the hospital and spent 5 hours in the hospital with me having contractions nearly the whole time. Then they gave me some medicine to try to slow down the contractions and that helped. My midwives were relieved to see that the contractions...though intense...weren't bringing on real labor. They sent me home on strict bed rest...(and I'm obeying) and said that I'll probably have to put up with these contractions due to the extra fluid, but just to watch that they don't become too intense and STAY intense. Today I took that YUCKY 3 hour blood sugar test to see if I have gestational diabetes which could have caused the extra fluid. (Since I had to go to my midwife app. on Monday, my non-stress test and ultrasound for baby on Tuesday and my 3 hour blood sugar test on Wednesday...Phillip teasingly told me to ask my midwives HOW I'm supposed to be on strict bed rest and still go to all of my doctor's appointments. =D) Thanks for your prayers...I'm trying to be careful to keep baby inside as long as we can.

Thinking of you during this time! I know it has to be very difficult for you because there is so much you want to do and see while you are home! It will be worth it in just a few short weeks! :)

We had lots of fun when you all were here.... Did you get to look for shoes? With all those Dr. apts, it sounds like you're going to need them.

LW, we'll see you at IHC.
Stay well! :)

Heather,

I attend the Franklin, Indiana Pilgrim Holiness Church, where you all are scheduled to be this Sunday morning. Tim Forsee is the pastor there. I am hoping that you are able to make it. I enjoy reading your blog. I made a prayer request for you and the baby last night at church. We will keep praying for you.

Thank the Lord you're in the USA at a time like this! Just another way the Heavenly Father is taking care of both you and baby boy.

We'll be praying for you.
