Hi guys!
How are you all? We're doing very well.  Christian is pretty much 100% recovered.  No crying blood or hamburger eyes to be seen! It looks like he has a burst blood vessel on the outside corner of his eyes, but otherwise is completely normal.  He's going back to school today. :-D

I, on the other hand, am having some issues.  I started pool therapy on Wednesday, and although I didn't feel like I overdid it, by that evening I couldn't walk.  I went to my other physical therapy appt last night and it turns out my hips/pelvis were crooked 3 different ways! No wonder I was in pain! So she fixed it, but I woke up this morning and felt like my pelvis was going to crack in half. It usually hurts the day after it's adjusted, but it is just getting worse.

And I still have 20 weeks to go. :-O  Not really sure what to do about that.  Hopefully the pool therapy, physical therapy and maybe some chiropractic care will help. I'm a tiny bit worried about the last weeks, and making sure my pelvis is aligned correctly so the baby can get through the birth canal, but I'll figure that out when I get there.

In other news, I think we've narrowed it down to 2 names.  Although they didn't jump out at us as THE ONE, they are growing on me. We'll probably go to the hospital with both names and then choose when she's here.  That'll be a first for us, usually we have the name picked out long beforehand.

Well, I have a long weekend ahead of me... all the men in our church are having a retreat this weekend, which means all the moms are left with all the kids. ;-)  I'm trying to conserve my energy so I can make it through the weekend without getting sick.

Hope you're doing well and have a fabulous Friday!


  1. I am shocked that you take or seem to take all of this in stride. I know you can't "fix" any of this yourself but you seem to be so much better than I would be, which would be laying in bed all day crying why me.
    I am still thinking of names...Grace, Leigh, Morgan or MacKenzie?
    Have a great weekend, hope you feel better.

  2. Hope your weekend turns out good! It's busy here for sure!

  3. I just wanted to let you know that I read every post and pray for you often!!! I am usually nursing when I read blogs and it's super annoying to write out heartfelt comments when you're doing the whole one-finger peck thing super duper slowly. =) So I don't usually comment, but just know I am thinking of you! I know you're afraid this pregnancy is going to be like your past pregnancies...but it is also so comforting to know that even if it is, God will never give you more than you can bear. Even though it's really hard and you can feel the crushing oh, so close!!!

    I think of you when I feel like I can't take my situations any longer – it is such a comfort and help for me to know that other Moms out there are going through situations maybe not exactly the same, but they are hard for EACH ONE in their own way, you know? Equally as hard, because that is how God brings us through the fire so that we can come out tried as pure gold.

    It's all I can do these days to take it one day at a time, one hour at a time – but there is a joy set before me that helps me to endure...and that is that some day it might not be so crazy! That I will settle into normal life again. For you, maybe it's your sweet baby girl......awww I can't wait to meet her!!! Maybe our kids will get married, lol, I would love to have you guys for in laws.

    Anyway have a really good weekend, I am praying for you and all the other Moms who are in the exact same boat as us – lots on the east coast too. =)
