31 weeks!

We made it to 31 weeks! Every day that goes by is such a blessing. I had another doctor's appointment and round of tests yesterday, and everything still looks good. The baby is growing well, still getting the nourishment that he needs, which is such good news. My health is still good, too- all my blood work came back normal. So praise the Lord for another good week! If things keep on going this well, we might even be able to make it to 36 or 37 weeks, which would be amazing! But it's a little hard to think of lying down on bed rest for 6 more weeks. :( It is worth it, though, for the health of the baby.

Thank you all who have been praying for us, bringing us food, calling us, and being such an encouragement to us. We have seen the Lord's provision so clearly for us throughout this time, and we're so thankful. Please continue to pray for our little son, that he will continue to grow and thrive, and that both Eric and I would have patience and grace to go through this time of bed rest. Pray also for wisdom for the doctor about when to deliver the baby.
