Blessed and Blessed

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope for His lovingkindness,
To deliver their soul from death
And to keep them alive in famine.
Our soul waits for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.
For our heart rejoices in Him,
Because we trust in His holy name.
Let Your lovingkindness O Lord, be upon us,
According as we have hoped in You.
Psalm 33:18-22

The Lord was so very kind to us this week. Last Wednesday I started to bleed and had to leave work. The doctor put me on bed rest for two days, and I was able to get appointment with my OB on Monday. I spent the weekend quietly at home, waiting for the appointment. We went to the doctor and we delighted and so thankful when the Dr. found the heartbeat. Praisee God from whom all blessings flow. That was very scary and we are so thankful we didn't lose our last little one. Thank you all for your continued prayers for Baby.

I'm due on the 6th of June. It seems far away now, but the first trimester is almost over already and now the holidays are coming so I'm sure it will come quickly. My clothes are already starting to get tight! Is that normal?

Well, I will post the sonogram pictures and the hurricane pictures soon. I promise! Life has just been a bit crazy lately.

Jordan, I am SO HAPPY for you guys. It's so wonderful to hear that your baby is still alive and well. I love you so much and am praying for you!

You mean you aren't already in maternity clothes?! Yes, dear, that's normal: the months that you need clothes a size or two bigger because yours don't fit and the maternity stuff falls off are such fun. And my .02 is do not get the maternity underwear unless you want a good laugh (or cry, depending on the day).

Perhaps this isn't the most polite blog talk, but will your regular underwear still fit?!? Keep the tips coming-- I'm clueless about pregnancy. I read on some website that most women don't wear maternity clothes until they are five months along-- I know a gal at Knox who is 6 and just started wearing them. I guess I should be more concerned about keeping myself covered up instead of what's "normal", but I'm already sensitive about my weight and I'm afraid that when I switch to maternity clothes people will start saying "So you're due pretty soon, huh?" and then we'll both be embarrassed!

I think I'll email you. :)
