Here's our little guy at 30 weeks. The ultrasound technician said it looks like the partial previa has corrected itself, but we are still waiting for final word from the doctor. We will hopefully know something later this week or early next week. 

this is a shot looking up his nose :)

Too busy

The last 2 months have been so busy for us, and I haven't really had the time or energy to keep my blog updated. I still don't really have time to go into detail, but here is the bulleted version of some of the things going on over the last few months:
  • On the way home from CA, I received a call from my Dr. telling me that my ultrasound results showed I had a condition called partial placenta previa. Basically this means my placenta is positioned too low, and partially covering my cervix. This brought about a new set of restrictions to my everyday life- no lifting over 15 lbs, no "strenuous" housework, no exercising besides walking, and even that is limited to 20 minutes. 
  • The reason for these restrictions is that I am at greater risk for my placenta to detach, which could cause premature labor, or worse, but we choose not to think about that.
  • The good news is, partial previa usually corrects itself during the 3rd trimester, so we have an ultrasound scheduled for April 21st to see how things are going. 
  • If I still have partial previa by the end of the pregnancy, I will have to have a c-section, but my midwives & Dr. are confident that it will probably have corrected itself by this next ultrasound. 
  • Jason is super busy at work, due only in part to it being Easter week. The church is going through major changes, and only Jason, the youth Pastor Amanda, and the secretary are still on staff. 
  • Currently the church is being run by the board, and we are searching for a new senior pastor (please pray we find the right one soon!!)
  • Due to my partial previa, I was no longer able to lift Dylan in and out of his crib, which meant we had to put him in his toddler bed before we thought he was ready. This actually worked out better than expected, and he loves his Lightning McQueen race car bed!
  • Our goal is to have him potty trained before the next little guys gets here...we'll see how that goes :)
I guess that is all for now. Here are a few pictures of my belly and Dylan:
