pray


This isn't something I'd typically write about.  But I wanted to ask you all to pray.

When I was pregnant with Claire, my blood pressure shot way up toward the end of my pregnancy, which caused me to go into pre-term labor.  Our sweet Claire was born at 35 weeks and 3 days, which isn't terribly early.  She did have to stay in the NICU for 5 days, or until she would have been considered full-term.  It's funny...she was so tiny and petite.  She wore preemie clothes for the first 2 months of her life!  The docs all told us she would always be on the small side...and she SO ISN'T!

So I've been on blood pressure meds for the last 6 years since she was born...thanks to my awesome gene pool.  I've been able to control it with meds, eating right, and exercise.  But it's definitely been something my doc has kept her eye on since I found out I was pregnant.

All throughout this pregnancy, my bp has been right where it should be, even low at the beginning.  However, last week when I went in for my appointment, it was definitely on the high end, which really concerned my doc (and me...and my mom!).  Plus I'm considered high risk for my age...who knew 35 was considered old to have a baby?!?

I don't really know how any of this looks, except that I know I don't want Judy to come yet.  I mean, selfishly I do, but she really just needs to stay put for another 4 weeks (I'm 32 weeks today).

If you think of us, please pray!  I know the Lord has it all in His control and Judy will come in His perfect timing.  I just want us both to stay healthy until then.  I'll keep you updated and thank you in advance for your prayers.
