Improvement!

After a week of being on bed rest, I went back to the doctor this morning to have my blood pressure re-checked. I could just feel it rising as I sat in the waiting room- I was so nervous!

It was still high, but not as high as last week, and the doctor is encouraged. He's given me permission to go back to work this week, as long as I'm not there for more than 6 hours a day. The rest of the time I'm supposed to be on my couch or in my bed. I will take what I can get!!! :) I'm so thankful.

The concern now is that I can make it as long as possible with the pregnancy. The blood pressure issue usually worsens as a pregnancy progresses, and right now the doctor is hoping that I can make it to 34 or 35 weeks, which is only 6 or 7 weeks away! Yikes! More than anything we want a healthy baby, so we are just praying that he can stay inside for as long as possible.

You never know what tomorrow is going to bring. I am so thankful for the Lord who sustains us through all of it.
