Kind of a no brainer this week for me! Anyone who's read my last couple blog posts knows that the blessing I'm going to talk about is the little one growing inside of me! I'm officially 11 weeks pregnant now too, btw! Seems like since we've heard the good news on friday everything has been going by so quickly! I had another doctor appointment today..but it was for the important bloodwork and urine tests that needed to be done. We opted to not have some of the optional testing done..we figured since it would determine if the baby had this or that wrong (Lord forbid)...we both know that abortion is NOT an option for us..so why bother with the tests in the first place? I've been praying for a long time now that this child will be 100% healthy and I'm believing in that. :-) My only concerns right now are for me in a health standpoint. My blood pressure was very high at my appointment last friday (something I've dealt with a time or two..but never had to take medication)..and diabetes runs rampid in my family as well. BUT..I know God has His protecting hand upon me and this baby..and that He's taking care of us. :-) Its a true comfort to know that fact! I am hoping to hear some good news next week at my 12 week doctor appointment though! I think once I get past that and know that everything is ok..I won't be so stressed w/other appointments. Seems in the beginning so far (for me anyways)..everything is just so new and you just want everything to be OK..and once you have that peace of mind..the rest will be easier? Any other moms like that feel that way..especially with your first-born? But anyways..here's to a blessing from God!!
