Keeping Mommy & Daddy on Our Toes...

Well, we have had a more eventful return from our two weeks of vacationing/ALIVE Festival than we had hoped for...but I am happy to say that all seems to be fine now and the baby is as healthy and happy as ever. Praise the Lord!!

I seem to have somehow developed about a centimeter tear in the lining of my uterus, causing some very scary and unwelcomed bleeding. But after seeing the doctor and getting a full ultrasound done, it seems this is something that will heal on its own over the next day or so and the pregnancy will continue like normal. So far, it has been about 24 hours, and the symptoms seem to have almost completely gone away.

And, on the bright side, we were able to get some cute pictures of the baby, which we will get posted here in the next day or so when I am able to move around more and get to a scanner. The heartbeat was steady at 150bpm and the baby measure at the exact same due date as originally planned.

We have an appointment for another complete ultrasound and a meeting with the doctor for this coming Wednesday to see if the tear has gone away or grown at all. I will be sure and post an update following that visit as well.

In the meantime, please keep the three of us in your prayers that all continues to go well with the pregnancy and that God keeps our little one safe and healthy...and thank you for all of the visits and phone calls, we love you all!!
