13 Weeks (Blessings #29)

This week has been a bit scary to be truthful. I had spotting and cramping Tuesday night and had to go to the doctor for an ultrasound on Wednesday morning. Thankfully, our jellybean is perfect! I have a condition called placenta previa. It is not anything to worry about unless I start bleeding a lot. It is not a danger to our jellybean at all - for which I am so grateful! I am on pelvic rest until my uterus and placenta move up and the spotting stops. Pelvic rest means that I cannot clean, exercise, do any heavy lifting and I have to basically stay off my feet as much as possible. Chip has been so great and his attitude has helped me so much!

The silver lining is that we will have more ultrasounds to see our little jellybean. I am grateful for such wonderful, supportive friends and that our baby is perfect and healthy. The rest we can handle.

In just a few more weeks we will find out the sex, however, our doctor in Texas and the ultrasound technician from Wednesday are thinking blue... We are ecstatic either way! The ultrasound was so amazing - jellybean is really moving around and having a blast in his mommy's tummy. It's such a gift to be able to carry our child!
