34 week update

There are days when I still can't believe I'm pregnant...then there are days when I feel like this is going to go on forever! The heat is starting to get to me but I am thankfully finding relief in the swimming pool and in my nice cold house! I can't believe we only have 6 weeks to go...well...hopefully 6 weeks!

I had my check up on Tuesday and it wasn't the best doctors appointment. First of all, last Wednesday night Kevin and I were in Labor and Delivery for a few hours because my blood pressure was going up. They finally decided to let me go home but I had to do a 24 hour urine catch. That would be peeing in a jug for 24 hours...oh...and keeping it cold. So very gross....

Fast forward to Tuesday....Grandma Mary came with me and while sitting in the exam room we noticed that my feet were looking pretty bad. They came in and did the blood pressure which was high and check my urine. For the first time in 34 weeks I had protien in my urine. Pair this with the high bp and I was laying on my side for a few minutes to try to get things leveled out! So my bp came down and the doc was really unhappy with my swelling. She decided to take more blood and put me on bed rest until the results came back Wednesday. Thankfully I got a call Wednesday that everything was fine and I was to just take it easy until my appointment next week.

So here is the wonderful news...through all of this our little girl has been amazing. She is in perfect health and is very fiesty! The doctors and nurses actually laugh when they are trying to monitor her because she gets really irritated and kicks and moves away! I honestly can't wait to meet this little person that has so much personality already.

Continue to pray for both of us that we will just breeze through the next few weeks. I keep repeating God's promise...No weapons formed against me shall prosper!....and I am believing this with all my heart. We have a busy weekend ahead....clear coating the dresser, swimming and then bbq at the Johnston's, belly pictures with Tiff on Sunday, birthing class on Sunday and then after...long trip to Walmart to pick up some last minute stuff for the little one. I'm sure there will be another trip to Des Moines packed in there somewhere! Off to work! Love you all!
