37 weeks

baby bump 37 weeks

Oy'  I've had a rough couple weeks in my pregnancy. Went in for what I thought would be a normal check-up, but was actually sent to the hospital for super high BP. My doctor now has me on bed rest until baby comes, which for me, is the hardest thing in the world. When I told Will, he basically just laughed and said he knew it would be a battle to keep me down.
BUT, my light at the end of the tunnel is I'm hoping sooner, rather than later, this beautiful blessing will be gracing us with its presence. Hear that baby?? 

Obviously my BP went down and we were sent home. Since then everything has normalized again. I now look back at the last few weeks and realize I was doing way too much. To me, I felt fine, so I just kept up with work, cleaning, dog walking etc..it's a little out of the norm for me to just rest, which is what I should've been doing more of. Lesson learned. 

& of course Will has been my savior. Helping me do basically everything & helping around the house. We work well as a team, but when one of us is down, we can really count on the other. It has been nice to slow down a little with each other. We've laughed so much in these last few days and that makes me so happy and this whole bed rest thing a little easier.
 
I should also note that the picture above is what I would like to call a 'flattering angle' for this belly. It is much bigger from the front & side. Baby is very low & ready to come out!
 
Just a little update from our family. We appreciate the thoughts & prayers and ask that you keep them up for a smooth and healthy delivery.
 
xoxo
