Oh so blessed

I have been blessed to have 4 healthy pregnancy's. I have been blessed to have 4 healthy babies. Heavenly Father has richly blessed my life with these 4 beautiful kids.

At about 16 weeks during this pregnancy I started having braxton hicks contractions. It's not normal for me to start so early. They didn't go away by resting or drinking water. At about 22 weeks I started having real contractions & cramping. They didn't go away by resting or drinking water. That is what concerned my doctor. Bed rest? I begged him not to. He told me to take it easy. Take it easy with 4 kids? I don't think so! But the contractions kept coming, so I said "Ok, I hear you! I'll take it easy!" The contractions have lessened. Yesterday, my dear sweet Kyler head butted me in the stomach. Oh how it hurt! It has caused me so much pain, I don't know if there is truely something wrong or just bruising. The contractions are back, not regular, not close together.

I am learning that it's ok to have a mess. My kids are learning a little bit more responsibility. I am learning more patience & to rely on others. I am learning to let go of pride & let others help out. I am learning that my will is not always the will of Heavenly Father. I so want the contractions to stop & the pain to go away, so that I can be a mom again & help out around the house again. Is that weird that I miss cleaning & taking care of things?

I truely have the best husband. He is concerned about me & the baby & is doing everything he can to make sure the baby stays in there & continues to grow & develop. He takes care of the house & the kids & goes to work & he's been taking care of me. He is truely Superdad!

Oh my goodness girl, that sounds miserable. I hope that things improve and that you can keep that little girl in there. I totally understand how hard it is to not be able to do the things you are use to and feel helpless, that is exactly how I felt when I had my 2 knee surgeries. Hang in there! Love Ya!

When I was pregnant with Carter, Dylan was running in the house and ran into me as I was walking down the hallway and hit my stomach hard. I started having contractions then too. I was told a month earlier to take it easy because I was having contractions at 21 weeks. I still went full term, but you HAVE to take it easy. It is hard and it sucks, but let all of us who love ya take care of you!!!! It will be completely worth it. Let me know if you need dinner or a sitter any time!!!!!
