In December, we will introduce a new baby GIRL into our family. We are super excited that God has blessed us with another child and I think Brenna will love having a sister to play with. Of course Jared would have loved a boy, but he is such a great dad to little girls and Brenna just adores him like I'm sure our new baby girl will as well.
I had my cerclage surgery 2 weeks ago and it went well. I had a little bit more bleeding than they expected after the surgery, so I ended up being on bed rest for a week unexpectantly. Thankfully our parents and friends were able to help out since I couldn't lift Brenna or do basically anything on my feet. This pregnancy has been a little bit more stressful than my last pregnancy because of some bleeding I've experienced five different times...four of those times were unrelated to the surgery. Thankfully, the baby has been fine each time and I haven't had any cramping or contractions along with it. Each time it happened though, I thought it could possibly be the end of the pregnancy. God has been so good to protect the baby through these times and to give me peace to get through the times of uncertainty.
We would appreciate your prayers that the rest of the pregnancy would go smooth and the baby would be healthy and strong when she is born.
