I know there have been several asking for baby updates, and you’re right, it’s time!
Let’s start with Melanie. She is currently over half way and is grateful for a fairly non-dramatic pregnancy. She still has to be careful of her activity level being watchful of contractions: no real exercise, limiting trips up and down the stairs, and keeping stress and excitement to a minimum. She still has contractions, but they don’t seem to be very concerning, and the doctor is satisfied with how she is doing. Melanie is on a heavier dose of progesterone, administered by a shot, once weekly. We give them a fair amount of help each week. Mom goes grocery shopping for them and we girls (Sarah, Anna, and Mary) clean their house. From all appearances, Baby seems to be doing fine, is active and has a great heartbeat. We continue to pray that Baby will wait until close to due date before entering the world!
So far, Anna Marie has had an uneventful, smooth sailing pregnancy with normal first trimester nausea. She is about four weeks ahead of Melanie and is excited to be starting into the third trimester. Baby seems very active and to have a great heartbeat.
Both Nathan and Melanie and Christopher and Anna Marie are thankful to the Lord Jesus for their little ones and are looking forward to meeting him/her.
There you have it!
