It is amazing when you look at how your life changes and the things you worry about as you begin to prepare yourself to be responsible for a life. Over the last month and a half I can honestly say I have seen God working in our lives. I am quicker to turn to him in difficult times, because he is truly the only one who has control over any of our previous scares. He is the one creating our little one, our little BOY. God has made me quicker to apologize as well. there have been times when my emotions have gotten the best of me and I have snapped, usually Adrian takes the blows, but God has taught me I can say I am sorry and we move forward. I don't just assume anymore that he knows I was wrong. I am sooooooo much quicker to ask for help, from friends, from acquaintances, family and mostly from the big guy upstairs. I am not ashamed or full of pride to take care of my own problems. I have turned to him and he has turned me to some of the greatest support in my life. Family and friends.
on that subject I don't think I could ever express in words what it has meant or felt like to me to have the prayer support of friends and family through all of this. I have felt a sense of peace knowing that people who love and care for us have been lifting us to God. I would not be telling the truth if I said my peace came from anywhere else. IT ONLY COMES FROM HIM!
Our last doctor's appointment a couple of weeks ago, was great. Dr Weaver said she was happy with the results from Memorial's ultrasound and from my blood work. When I brought up the one arterial umbilical cord she was not concerned, just stated that we would monitor it closely every four weeks with an ultrasound to make sure our little boy is growing at a normal rate. She said that there was a possibility that if he slowed or stopped in growth that we would look at inducing, if it was better for him to be born than remain in me. But we would watch that and know more later. I have to say that it was a big relief to know that she was not concerned and hear her tell me the last baby she delivered with this issue was over 9 pounds. OK, I could deliver it at 7 or maybe 8 but I will pass on the 9 pounder he doesn't need to get that big.
On a more worldly note. We finished painting the nursery and we love it. It is soooooo cute, this weekend we are making the bedding and next weekend we head to MN to pick up the crib from my mom. She is letting us use the crib I used when I was little. How cool is that. IF I didn't break it with my thrashing around, my kid won' t do it any damage. Right? Then by the third weekend of June we will have the nursery put together. I am soooo excited. I do have to tip my hat to Adrian, he has been a trooper and put up with my particularness through it all. He re-drywalled a wall, painted, put up new trim, added new outlets, light switches, painted door knobs and window hardware and painted second coats on circles. All so when I came home it was finished today. I might add it is adorable and a fantastic job. Hats off to my amazing husband. I always knew he was good with kids, but didn't know he was so handy. When I dated him he fixed things with Duct Tape and jimmy-rigged TV stands, how was I to know. That early fathers day present of a miter saw might have been the best present ever.
Happy Graduation to those of you accomplishing great things this weekend or early or later this month!!!! Congratulations!!!!
Have a great weekend.
