Blogger Challenged and Preggo Pics

It amazes me how challenged I am when it comes to this blogger design thing. Actually, it scares me more than anything because I am already falling behind in technology. I have just spent over an hour trying to figure out how to get rid of certain templates and I just can't figure it out. So I'm stuck with a weird looking blog. Whatever.

Had a great dr appointment yesterday! Cervix feels great and I had practically no irritibility. Best I've looked on the monitor in a long time! Continueing to stay doubled up on my medication and bedrest. I see my high risk dr tomorrow so I'll find out how long he will keep me on meds. My OB said once I hit 34 weeks, which is in about a week and half, I'll be able to have more freedom. Being able to get up more and do little things here and there. So that's something to look forward too. =) If things keep going the way they are, I'm gonna have to start getting prepared to bring this baby home with me! I don't know what to pack in the diaper bag to take to the hospital!? Some clothes and diapers?? We'll have to get the carseat ready and put the base in the car. The thought of possibly bringing Maverick home with us kinda freaks me out. I'm gonna feel like a first time mom. Ok, I might be getting ahead of myself a bit here, we still have a few weeks to make it through to get close to that point. But, it is kind of exciting thinking that that could be a possibility.

It is so weird to think that soon we will be a family of 5. We are going to have 3 kids!! On our way to my dr appt yesterday Danny and I were talking about how humbled we feel. We are so blessed and don't feel like we deserve any of it. What an awesome God we have. It has been SO neat to look back at what God has done in our lives over the past 8 years that we've been married. He has always provided for us. ALWAYS. In the good times and the bad. I was on the verge of tears on the drive home from my appointment just thinking about how for so long, we thought that we shouldn't have anymore kids. The dr I had with Devan told me I should be done. It's neat to look back at our journey that got us to where we are today. It took 3 1/2 years for our dreams of getting pregnant again to come true. But they did. And it was all in the Lord's timing and plans...not ours. I thank the Lord for finding the new dr's that I did. What a difference to find dr's who are positive and encouraging and willing to do what it takes to give you the most successful pregnancy possible! I have beat the "statistics" that say when you have preemies, they'll just keep coming earlier and earlier. So thankful for that....

Anyways, here are some pics from the beginning to where we are now....they are nothing fancy, totally ghetto. I hardly have any pics from when I was pregnant with the girls, so i wanted to make sure I took a few more this time.

    Love your growing belly! And so thankful to the Lord that little Maverick continues to grow away inside of you! :)

  2. Ahhh so cutsie! We love your big ol' belly. And what a journey you and Danny have been on. Funny how things always work out for the best. Just surrendering is half of the struggle, the rest is just being patient. We love you guys, and love seeing you soooo pregnant.
