Winding Down On Day 8

Today has had many ups and downs but I think we are going to finish on a good note (unless Gaines decides not to cooperate on tonight's monitoring at 9). My parents set up a web cam tonight and we were able to see Reed and Jack! We don't have a camera here so they couldn't see us (not sure if that is good or bad) but it was so good to see them. Reed waved at us and did a few tricks like pat his head, point at his nose, etc. It did my heart good to see that little face tonight.

Today was a scary day for me. I pray that it was a fluke and that tonight's monitoring goes well. I've been so focused on just making it through each day that I don't really let myself think about Gaines too much. I just really can't because I get so scared. I know that whatever happens it will be God's will. In my heart I know that all of this is happening for a reason and whatever God has in store for us, will be for the glory of God. That said, I pray that God's will is for Gaines to be born healthy.

Interestingly, our SS class sent us a care package today and in it among other awesome things (like new pajamas!) was a little angel painting titled "God's Will". I love it and already have one other by the same artist. I just think that it was really appropriate that I got it today. Along with that package we also got a gift from some of my family members back home with lots of homemade goodies. Let me just tell you that I've been into those today. I also got a new book that I hope to be bored enough tomorrow to get started on. We had three visitors today, I never knew we were so popular in DC. They all brought much appreciated items as well. We are so thankful for all of our visitors and our gifts.

I feel this little guy kicking around there...pray that he just hangs on a little (or lot) longer. They are about to do my monitoring now so pray that he has settled down and we can get a good nights sleep. Got to run for now...

Just wanted to let you know that I lost all of my fluid with my first daughter at 16 weeks and I went on strict bed rest and I made it to 33 weeks with no infection! With my second daughter, I lost all of my fluid at 22 weeks and made it to 27 weeks without infection. Do not lose hope! Although each person's experience is different, I know a little about what you are going through and I know that it is a terrifying experience, but have faith! Through God all things are possible! I will be praying for you! "We rejoice in our suffering, knowing that suffering produces perseverance, and perserverance character, and character hope and hope does not disappoint us because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us." Romans 5:4-5
