a baby update

I know it’s been quiet around here lately, and I wanted to take a moment today to let you all know what’s been going on. I am officially on hospital bedrest until our baby girl is born. At our ultrasound appointment on Tuesday, it was found that our baby wasn’t growing at nearly the rate they’d like. They were (and still are) unsure of the exact cause, but admitted me to the hospital to monitor her progress. I am officially in my 30th week, and they hope that she thrives enough inside of me to stay in until 34 weeks or so.

Meanwhile, I’ve been ordered to rest, eat a high protein diet, and rest some more. This space will still be active, but a bit quieter than normal. We definitely appreciate any prayers and good thoughts you can spare. Specifically, we are praying that she grows and thrives so that do not have to deliver her but so early. We are also praying that the reason for her lack of growth is due to a placental issue with me, and not an issue with her.

I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated-thanks, in advance, for your prayers and support!!
