Well it has been about 4 weeks since my last post. A Lot has happened. Things are crazy and calm all at the same time.
My husband lost his Job. Before you GASP and say 'oh no!" We were planning on him quiting anyways to stay home with Blake. Its just sooner than we had wanted. At first I was shook up about it because we have to completly replan some financial things and health insurance but it only took a couple days for me to realize that it was actully a blessing in disguise. Thats where the title of this blog post comes in. The day he lost his job I found out that I am having some signs of hypertension.or high blood pressure during my pregnancy. I now I have see the doctor once a week and I'm on meds. Brian being off work as allowed him take over the house duties and leave me work and just being able to relax when I am home. I truely believe it had made a huge differance. It was like all of a sudden we could both feel our stress levels fall. We are enjoying all the extra time together before baby comes. God really does know what he is doing sometimes.
Okay some more about whats going on with baby. One day I got a horrid headache and I took my blood pressure with my mom's at home monitor and it was really high. So I went in to the OB. They had me do labs and things came back on what I would describe the high end of normal. So being cautious and proactive I was put on a med and now I go in weekly. I'm also having some sugar issues even though I passed the glucose test so This week I am pricking my darn finger 4 times a day to monitor those. Needless to say its all geting old..hoping the next weeks fly by because to be honest I am so ready to have my body back and my love in my arms.
I am getting so excited about baby shower which is 2 weeks away! I just can't wait to clebrate baby blake with my family and friends. Then the following weekend I believe my dad and my step mom melissa are coming up to see us. All things to look forward and hopefully make the time go faster.
Well I will leave you with some belly pictures:) 4th of july..
