There is a family from our church that had a premature baby girl, Caroline, 10 days ago. She was 32 weeks, 3 lbs. 10 oz., and doing great until a couple of days ago. She has an infection in her large intestines and is currently on 2 different antibiotics to clear it up. She has been taken off of any liquids and is receiving fluids only through an IV. Please keep this precious little girl and her family in your prayers. We know all about intestinal issues and we also know how to pray them away, right?!
Thank you! I know this family greatly appreciates it during this time of uncertainty.

I plan on doing a pregnancy post soon. As soon as I get caught up on disinfecting and getting my house back in order, you'll see us back!

My face is spotted red because of all of the broken blood vessels from heaving so hard, but the worst of it is that my hips are so cramped up from being dehydrated. My wonderful father-in-law (bless his heart...we called him because we knew he was an early riser & would jump at the opportunity-it's just who he is) brought us some ginger ale and Sprite this morning just before 6 a.m. I was ready to go to the ER and tell them to stick an IV in me. I didn't sleep one second last night and couldn't nap at all this afternoon because my hips hurt so bad. I'm trying to replenish my body's fluids, but it needs more than the average person so it's taking longer.
Thanks for letting me moan and groan. Please pray for us as we recuperate. Here's to hoping we didn't infect anyone else along the way!

Here are some pictures from today!
As for the rest of us, we are doing good. I am finally in my third trimester and creeping past my longest point of pregnancy yet. I have decided to switch doctors so that I can attempt a VBAC (vaginal birth after c-section). I love my current OB practice, but they will only do repeat C-sections. After talking with friends who had done a VBAC and talking to several OBs, I feel very comfortable with our decision and am really excited to have a normal birth (C-section or vaginal). George actually commented that I've gotten quite large in the last couple of weeks and that he could bowl with my stomach. Good thing I'm not sensitive to "fat pregnancy" comments. Most other woman I've talked to said that I'm actually small for being in my 7th month. Anyway, I'm down to two week appointments and will have my first real appointment with my new OB in about a week and a half!
