Due to complications regarding partial placenta previa earlier in my pregnancy mixed with the being on an anti-coagulant for my blood clotting disorder, I spent most of my 24th week of pregnancy in the hospital. I'm so grateful for the access to monitoring and an NICU in case something more had happened and they'd needed to deliver the baby early. Most of all, I'm thankful nothing worse happened and I was able to go home after just 6 days! The placenta previa is now gone and my pregnancy has continued in good health! Also, the baby never showed signs of distress which is the most comforting thing to me.
My mission before and upon getting pregnant has been to create a healthier environment for my baby by gaining a little more weight. Lots of yummy, healthy, fat building food is on my agenda!! Unfortunately, now that I'm in my 3rd trimester I can't fit very much in there at any one time. I have gained about 25 pounds so far so I'm super happy!

to have weekly non-stress tests.

Isn't he cute?? Such an acrobat. ;)
In late June my sister and sister-in-law threw a shower with a You Are My Sunshine theme. It was super cute!!

And here we are! 34 weeks and counting. I'm so grateful for the time I've had with my little man! Praying for the glorious chance to meet him face to face.
