Pregnancy Again

The following is a post that I had on my original blog. It was posted Thursday, August 16, 2007 and Ryland was born August 21st.....only five days later, hard to believe.
This pregnancy has been so different from the get-go. Morning sickness, smaller weight gain, less headaches, no swelling at this point. I am 29 weeks and really trying to not get nervous. I pray about this everyday and it continues to be so hard to let go. I am excited for what the next few weeks bring and hopefully see what going 40 weeks is like :-)


Being pregnant is scary. It's funny that you never think about that when you are trying to get pregnant. I have been to the hospital twice this week. I went in Tuesday at 1am because of a horrible headache. They tell you that if anything is above and beyond normal, call the doctor. So while I was there, the headache was no big deal but the contractions I was having were. Unfortunately, I could not feel the contractions. Tuesday, I decided to go to work and got a call from my doctor and was told to go back to the hospital so they could monitor the contractions that I was not feeling. Things seem ok and they are a little worried about my blood pressure and hypertension problems. Its just scary that this was all happening and I didnt even know it and would not have known it had it not been for the very unimportant headache I was having.
Ultimately, the hard part is not being in control. I have very little control on what is happening inside me. I can control what I eat, working out, taking it easy, taking vitamins and that's about it! Everything else, God is doing inside of me. There is nothing I can do beyond that. I am seeing the doctor again today and I am a little worried about bed rest. It is hard to not stress when all I do is listen to people's stressors. So we'll see :-)
