Chubby, tan legs....

I just got back from my weekly appointment and the ultrasound showed that there have been no changes in the weakening of my body this week. It was great news since we are so close to being on a hospital bed rest... and thought it very possible to start this week... but it also means that nothing has changed. We were super excited and really happy after the ultrasound results and then, while we waited to see the doctor, I think the reality kind of sank in. That's when Doug and I found ourselves looking at each other wondering why we weren't feeling super happy anymore. I guess It's hard to explain how it feels to get good news and yet have it not change your circumstance or possible outcomes at all. We do continue to feel very blessed. We've made it another week! We love the Lord and know He will never cease to watch over our little family.

I've decided to include in my posts, during this time, some things that I am grateful for each day or things that just make me happy...

Yesterday: I'm grateful for the sounds of my little boy and my husband running around the house playing hide and go seek. It makes me so happy to hear my Andrew count to 16 and then mess up the next number and say "...eleventeen...oh, umm....ready or not, here I come!"

I'm grateful to have an amazing husband who will make me homemade black bean nachos and fruit smoothies when I'm hungry. Also, and most importantly, to have a husband and best friend who is able and willing to pass me the sacrament when I am not able to go to my meetings and receive it on my own.

Today: I'm grateful for a nurse who can take my blood with one prick, not 4. I'm also grateful for red vines....they remind me of my Grandma and taste oh, so delicious!

It makes me so happy to see rainstorms in the sunshine, steam rise off the hot pavement, and the chubby, tan legs of my niece, Lauryn!

Wow Heather, CONGRATS! Congrats, that is, that you are expecting. I was wondering if you were going to try to have more children - and hooray you are! I love all the updates, and I'm sure it helps you cope with the bedrest/emotional rollercoaster/pain. Wow, best of luck. I can always hop down from Columbus if you need a friend! (Seriously!)

Those are some awesome things to be grateful for about your husband that not everyone can say...
