It's been a while since I've written anything, life has been extremely busy and overwhelming! We were busy doing school and life, then busy wrapping up the end of our homeschool co-op and trying to wrap up our school year, (still working on that) and now getting ready for our VBS.
Update on pregnancy: I just realized I haven't said anything since we found out we were pregnant and had our first ultrasound. We are now 32 1/2 weeks along! The beginning of the pregnancy was really hard. I had a few episodes of heavy bleeding and one that sent me to the emergency room just knowing that I was miscarrying. It was terrifying but we just put our trust in the Lord and everything turned out just perfectly except a few weeks of bedrest. After all of that the pregnancy has progressed with no hitches, all genetic testing came back with good results, no gestational diabetes and only a slight bit of anemia. Thus far it has been an incredibly easy pregnancy compared to my first. And the best news of all, we're having a GIRL! I am so excited and have felt deeply blessed. At this point I am just praying that I will not get pre-eclampsia again and that I will survive this Texas heat and humidity!
Update on my spiritual life: I know one would think that because of the amazing blessing that we received that living our lives for God would be that much easier. In a way that's true but honestly I have been struggling through a serious dry season for several months. I didn't know what else to do but pray, pray and pray some more. I finally feel the fog beginning to lift and I feel like I am working again on my relationship with the Father. I hate that feeling of being absent from His presence and feeling like I am failing as a Christian. I pray for forgiveness for my apathy and am working to pick up where I left off!
Life has been moving along at an incredibly fast pace and I am looking forward to our pregnancy journey ending and parenting two beautiful children.
I hope this post finds you all doing well and growing in Christ. I continue to pray for my fellow women who have suffered/are suffering through infertility.
Until next time, may Christ's love and blessings be upon you and yours.
