Another Baby Update

pregnancy

We thought little Ellerie might join us yesterday. Yesterday, (close your ears guys) I lost some mucous, which is a sign for me that labor is usually about a day or two away. So I went into the Dr. so they could try and stop the contractions. They ultrasounded the baby and she is almost 5 lbs, which is great. After IV fluids the contractions slowed down and I got a steroid shot to help her lungs. I am home now and will rest until she comes. Pray for her safe delivery and pray for my husband as he picks up the slack around home! I will have completed 34 weeks tomorrow but we're hoping to make it to 35 weeks next Saturday.

Will keep you updated if she decides to join us early.

Many prayers for all of you as you wait, and hope for a little more time before the birth.

Hey Jenn! It was great to hear from you! I still haven't mastered the whole blog thing yet, but I am working on it. I will definitely be praying for you and the baby. Hope things are going well for your family.

Jenn, I will be praying for you and your baby! Being on bed rest is a humbling thing when you can't "do" anything. (We all know that you are providing for your baby by laying on that couch!) But seriously, let your friends come clean your house, and I always found it a good time to train my kids in preparation for when the baby comes. I remember having my 2 year old bring the wooden spoon over to the couch so I could give him a spank!

I will be praying for you. I know how hard it is to not be total control before the baby comes! Get as much rest as you can.
