29 weeks and counting

Today’s ‘grateful’ is for God, for His protecting our baby and getting me safely to 29 weeks. I’ve been on a semi-bed-rest for the last couple of weeks after going into the hospital one night for early labor contractions. Couple of hours of monitoring, a shot, a cocktail of pills, and the contractions stopped but it was still scary (not to mention what it did to Shawn’s generally ‘take-it-all-in-stride’ behaviour (hehee)). We’re also going into the city weekly to see a neo-natal specialist as the baby seems to have a heart arrythmia but the last report was positive and we’re praying she’ll grow out of it.

So here I am, thankful that she’s still incubating inside of me and not in a hospital, thankful that Shawn’s cooked most of our meals for 2 weeks so I can stay off my feet, thankful that the boys set me up with a whistle with which I get to play Queen and use to summon them to my bidding…:)

just for fun. According to Shawn, I have hobbit-feet and toes as long as fingers so I had to take one like this for him. just for fun. According to Shawn, I have hobbit-feet and toes as long as fingers so I had to take one like this for him.
for those of you that keep HOUNDING me for belly pics! This is the best I could do for myself. It’s a mirror selfie and I tried a couple with me peeking around the camera to stick my tongue out at you-know-who-you-are, but they blurred out so you got off this time!
