It's been a LONG time since I last posted. For one I'm pregnant with baby number 2. My sweet squirmy baby is due late May/early June.
We are having a few complications this go around. I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism. Not the funnest (or safest) thing to have while pregnant. Last week, I started having contractions and bleeding which landed me in the hospital overnight. They called it a threatened miscarriage and when they did an ultrasound they saw that I had the beginnings of placenta previa. So this mommy is on bed rest. Praise the Lord the baby is ok.
I have such an amazing well of support in my life and I'm so grateful! My parents who where Johnny on the Spot and stayed all weekend. My sister and brother in law that came and rearranged furniture to make the bedroom more bed rest and eventually baby friendly. My awesome BFF's who have called, texted, hung out etc. And my amazing church family who has brought meals and prayed continuously for us on this journey.
Mostly I cannot give my husband enough props! He is doing the job of ten men right now. Cooking, cleaning, toddler wrangling, errands, laundry and going to his regular job to name a few. He also surprised me with a laptop so I'm not so lonely and I can still do the admin side of my job. He is a wonderful gift from God and I love him dearly.
I know that bed rest is tough but necessary. For this busy go, go, go person, sitting still can be torture. But I want to be acceptance-with-joy and not complain (so much). I'm learning that in this season.
Another thing I'm learning. That the Lord is forcing my internal Martha to sit at the feet of Jesus and become a Mary. This morning I worshipped for the first time since I don't know when. Not like worship at church where you are dancing with your child (which is still fun, but has it's distractions), but really just me and Him worship.
I've also been finishing the mountain of half read books on my shelf. And can I tell you how life changing it is! My heart was fully tenderized for the messages that were waiting. I will write in later posts about that as well.
Until then prayers for a full term, healthy baby.
