It's almost time..........
Just a quick update on Kelli.
Tomorrow is her due date! I am not expecting that she will go on that date because last Wednesday when she went for her weekly check-in......absolutely NOTHING was happening! She will return to her OB this Wednesday and if still NOTHING is happenng, he will send her for a sonogram to make sure that her ambiotic fluid is adequate. Her doctor has told her that he will not let her go over one week which would be Feb. 25th. So.....sometime within the next week we will have a NEW baby in our family.
We had a busy day today....leaving church and spending the afternoon out. I will post about that a little later. Kelli has begun to swell......especially in her hands and she says that she can feel "fatness" in some other areas too! Even so, you can see she still has her sense of humor. This swelling seems to be a regular thing with her pregnancies. Thankfully she is delivering in February and not in August. Gianna was born in August and she swelled up terribly. Her wedding rings had to be cut from her fingers after church one Sunday. This time she has taken her rings off so that wouldn't happen again.
She started out in the pregnancy being very sick and didn't start gaining well until about the fourth or fifth month. She has steadily gained but.....she has not put on as much weight as she did with Gianna. She has said all along that she wouldn't gain so much. Well....she has done better but she hasn't deprived herself one little bit. Just ask her......she'll tell you she's hungry every minute of the day. I have to say that she looks really healthy and has been and is extremely active with two young ones to care for. She has felt really good since she completed the first trimester and hasn't slowed down for anything. She is slowing a wee bit now, anxiously waiting for the time to come.
We are so excited about this joyful time awaiting us. If I could please ask for your prayers once again, that Kelli will have an uneventful delivery but a perfectly healthy baby and that this can be accomplished quickly. Thank you so much for all of your prayers and well wishes for her during the last six months. We are almost there. God is so good!
