Thanksgiving & Non-Stress Test #3

Holidays can be difficult when there's no family around. I am very thankful to be involved in my church family. The Sunday before Thanksgiving one of the families we know at church found out that we had no Thanksgiving plans so they immediately invited us over to celebrate with them. We accepted and had a lovely day at their house fellowshipping with them. We enjoyed great food, played one game of Settlers of Catan relaxed a bit and even got to experience the Wii. I played Wii tennis and bowling. Since I was a bit tired, I sat on the couch and played. :) We had a lovely day all around remembering the many blessings from the Lord that we thank Him for. Especially our wiggly little girl.

I went in this morning for my 3rd non-stress test. It's funny because from the time I wake up to the time I get to the hospital the baby is very quiet and doesn't move very much. As soon as I sit at the admission desk she starts to wake up and wiggle a little and once I have the monitor strapped to my tummy, she's doing acrobatics inside. She passed again with flying colors. :) Good girl! Tomorrow, I have my next Dr's appt and ultrasound. I don't know if they'll do a growth check or if we'll just check the blood flow in the cord. Let's pray that she's continued to grow since last week and is a healthier, stronger baby at this point.

(Sorry for the lack of pictures). There's only so many pregnant belly pics that I can take.

I am so happy that baby is doing well on her stress tests. Don't you just love hearing that little heart beat. I'm praying for you and your little one. I'm sure she will be just fine and spunky- like her mommy. I understand about only being able to take so many belly pictures. But I do like to see how you are growing.

I'll continue to prayfor you and your baby! I completely understand about the whole holiday issue. God always provides some sort of "family"...thank goodness for church family/

Glad someone in your church invited you over - I so know how you feel - and we are thankful that there are couples who always invite us to be included in special times - - - makes it so much nicer and helps with being apart from family. We have some that are very very faithful in doing that - including us in their family celebrations. Glad God has provided that for you.

Praying that all continues to go well!
