17 weeks Pregnant and Counting!
So this will be baby #7 for us and this pregnancy has had so many dips, curves and uneasy roller coaster vibes that we've really had a run for our money! About a week ago I had some heavy bleeding and cramping and was rushed into E.R. again fearing the reoccuring episode of spotting at my 6 week mark.. Panic stricken with a flood of thoughts of what I could've done to bring this all on, but to our surprise baby is still strong, kicking and very much alive... A huge sense of peace came over me as Mana and I waited in the E.R. room for the long 5 hours we were there. We made use of our time reading books to one another and laughing as we made up songs to totally random things.. It really brought me peace and strenghth to have Mana there with me. Shortly after this episode they discovered that I have a heart murmur. I've had an echo cardiogram done a few days ago and really won't know what the outcome of this will be until my doctor gives me further word of my results!...So far I've been continuing my daily routine but with a little more caution. My mother in law will be here for 2 weeks and I am so excited to have her help during this time. I'm thankful for my family and their efforts in helping wherever they can! It's been a treat to have a helping hand!.. My tummy is growing so much but to my surprise I've lost 13 lbs and I feel really great! wow...atleast that's some great news to share in this post!
