My Own Special Miracle...

The last two weeks of my life have been one word.....stressful. Ever since my last doctors appointment (you know, the one where he said I'm huge!) I had been worrying and worrying and even more worrying. I was so focused on the fact that my baby may not be okay that everything else in my life was just stressing me out.

The doctor had told me that I may have too much amniotic fluid, and after looking up what that actually meant I was even more worried. Too much amniotic fluid could cause birth defects and all sorts of other complications that frankly freaked the crap out of me.

Monday night my parents drove all the way out to my house (they really are some amazing people if you don't know them) for dinner and so my Dad could help Adam give me a blessing before my appointment the next day. My sweet husband (with the help of the lord of course) gave me the sweetest blessing and I immediately felt peace come over my body (why didn't I get one sooner!).

The time for my appointment came yesterday and though I was still a little nervous for what news I would receive I knew that I would be okay with whatever it was. First things first, they weighed me, I lost a pound. Odd, thats never happened to me this late in pregnancy before. We wait for what seems like forever in the ultrasound room for the doctor (though it was really less than 10 minutes). The doctor comes in and measures me. I am smaller than when he measured me two weeks ago. 2 weeks ago I measured at 29 weeks, this time 28 weeks. I am officially right on track the doctor tells me. How the heck did my body get smaller when I should only be getting bigger?

Then the doctor does the ultrasound (she is still a girl) and does all of her measurements. She is EXACTLY the size that she should be at this point in my pregnancy. Usually you will have a couple of days difference between your menstrual due date and your fetus due date (estimate of due date based on the size of baby). Nope they were the exact same day. The doctor then tells me that I am an example of a perfect pregnancy. What a change from my last appointment.

I KNOW that the blessing that I received on Monday from my hubby and dad made this miracle for us happen. I am so thankful for the priesthood and to have it in my home with me at all times. I am so thankful for my husband and father who are worthy priesthood holders and could bless me in such a way to heal my body and make whatever was wrong before go away.

I KNOW the Lord will bless us if we ask and have faith in his power.

We have finally made progress on both the boys room and the baby room!!! I finally don't feel stressed out about it anymore. After almost 3 years in our house we have finished the boys room! It isn't how I wanted it, but at this point I am just happy it is done!
We went with an old car theme, so I painted the room black and white and then we threw up some color with the different car pictures. The cars above are actually lights which is really cool but I wish they were battery operated so that the cords weren't hanging down. We are thinking about just cutting the cord off and not using them as lights. We'll see. All I need to do now is touch up the chair rail with white paint.

Kylee's room still isn't done, but it is close. We still need to paint her dresser, hang a couple more things and get the bedding on, but the paint (thank heavens) is done. I decided against hanging the letters with ribbon because, well frankly, I was just to lazy to do it. Leaving the ribbon on the letters and putting them up how I did was so much easier for me. I know I'm lazy but I like it and I got the stamp of approval from that husband of mine so we are all good.
A very special THANK YOU goes out to my bro. in law Garrett for deciding to come over at 10P.M. and work until 2:30A.M putting up the chair rail in both rooms. You rock Garrett!! We couldn't have done it with out you (and mostly because you provided everything but the chair rail) :)
