28 weeks today:)

Yay! We made it to 28 weeks...

Now my next goal is 30 then 32 weeks and so on...

Tomorrow will mark 1 week of bedrest down... It has not been bad at all, thanks to everyones help:). That gives me great hope that we can manage the upcoming weeks with God's help.

I am sitting here at 10:30 at night drinking a glass of juice and eating a banana with chocolate fondue:). Is that bad or what??:). I know I have said it before, but Levi isn't a big mover in general. I know I could be overly sensitive to his movements due to Samuel's situation. Or maybe it is just too early to be feeling more... Or maybe he will just be a laid back baby... I don't know, but, needless to say, he is wiggling around a whole lot more than he was 20 minutes ago:)

I saw the regular doc today. The non stress test (nst) went great and Levi's biophysical profile was fine too. Yay! My bp and protein were also good. So all in all it was a great visit. I see the high risk doctor Thursday to do the same and she will compare everything(placenta and such) to last weeks ultrasound to make sure all is good! I AM so thankful they are keeping a close eye on everything.

If you could add Jojo to your prayers, he seems to have a stomach bug and threw up tonight. We are praying no ones else gets it and thankfully, it was a one time deal for him, so maybe it was something he ate... Hmmm, I hope so!

We enjoyed a beautiful dusting of snow, our first of the year. The kids had a ball outside . I could see them running around the back yard from my bed... They looked so sweet out there. We had fun sharing some hot cocoa in my bed afterwards:).

I'll keep you posted... Hope you are all well too... I am having a hard time checking everyone's blogs from this little IPod. I miss reading them and keeping up with you... Maybe at some point we can get our old lab top working:).

God's peace to you all!

I am so happy that you and Levi (and your whole family) are doing well and have adjusted to bedrest ok. There is a lot you can do from your bed! :) Homeschooling takes on a whole new comfy look!!! Praising God with you for week 28 and stable blood pressure and protein.

Keeping you in prayer and will pray that Jojo recovers quickly and that bug moves its way out with no more victims.

Much love,

YAY! 28 weeks is a huge milestone. Sounds like things are going as well as they can. Will pray that no one else in your family gets sick. Hang in there. Praying for you and Levi every day!

Praising God for great news honey! So glad you are cozy and could enjoy the fun from your bed as the kids romped in the snow! It has been snowing in WI all night and all day. It's hard to keep the kids attention in school! I'll be sippin' a hot cocoa this afternoon in your honor as I pour over Math and Social Studies lessons :) Love you so much and so excited for all your praise reports! Hugs and oodles of chai tea, Sam :)

I jumped over here from A Place Called Simplicity just to say that I will be praying for you and Levi. You and I have something in common that not a lot of people do... sons from adopted embryos!

My adopted embryo was born nearly 6 years ago (4/8/07), his name is Kevin. He is such a delight.

My prayers for your beautiful family and your precious son, Levi!
