God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow,sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

I am alive and well, sorry for the being MIA. Things have been alittle busy with Dr appts and work schedule. I come home from work and I am so tired and getting on the computer sometime is the last thing that I do, with being on one all day long. I am now on light duty at work so all I can do is a sit down position with limited duties on the floor do to the cramping that I have and get when I am on my feet to long this is all do to the previa. Dr put me on light duty for good until Noah is born. This is all do to the scare that we had that end me at the ob depart 2 1/2 weeks ago( May 3rd). I have had no more spotting since then, some cramping. The last two weeks I have been to the dr for check ups, she is keeping on eye on me.

Here is a recap of the 2 wks.
May 6th- I had a follow appt for my trip to Ob and baby was good, heartbeat was 136, and he was kicking the Doppler as she was trying to listen to him. Then that is when she decide that she thought that it would be a good idea for me to get steroid injections to help with the development of Noah's lungs, just in case that I would deliver early with some of the complications that I have had along the way. She told me that she will not let me go past 36- 37 wks. I have another ultrasound at 30 wks to check on the previa and then we will make the decision then as to if it will be a c-section or natural.

May 14Th-15Th-I went back on Thursday for another checkup and my Dr was called away to emergency surgery so I saw a NP she was very nice and answered my questions and she measured my belly and Noah's heartbeat was 144. I asked her if I was measuring on track and she said that I was. I got my first Corticosteroids inj called Celestone. Then I was instructed to come back in 24 hours for my next one. I went back on Friday afternoon for my second one and baby heartbeat was 140.

Then today I went for another checkup and it went well. I got right in and belly is measuring at 25wks Noah's heartbeat was 139. She told me with my Bicornate uterus that she hopes that I go until 35 wks but she wants me to have another set of Corticosteroids at 28-30 wks just in case . I go for my Glucose tolerance test in 3 wks then I see her again on June 17 Th. I can't believe that I am less the 2wks away and I am in the 3 rd trimester.
I love being pregnant and feeling him move in there. I can't wait to meet my little guy in less then 11 weeks.
In other news, we are all registered we finished a few weeks ago. We registered at Target and Wal-mart and I picked out my traveling system. My mom and her sisters brought us our traveling system for our shower gift. The nursery is done for the most part, just have little things to touch up on.

I have finally decide an an outfit to bring Noah home from the hospital in and one for his first pictures. I will leave you with that.

I want to say thank you to those of you that emailed me to check on me, It is nice to know that some do care out there. Keep praying for us.
