Getting Closer to Meeting Joshua

I'm 33 weeks along in my pregnancy now. Overall, everything seems to be going pretty well. I did have a bit of concern this past Sunday. I started to spot...not much, just a little. To be on the safe side, I called my doctor. He jad me come in and examined me. I was dilated to 1 cm. I was also having contractions (probably just Braxton-Hicks) and didn't know it! He gave me medicine to stop the contractions, ordered some tests and an ultrasound, and put me on bedrest until my regularly scheduled appointment on Thursday.

My husband did a great job of taking care of me and insuring that I did nothing! I gave him a new name for his efforts - The Warden. :)

We went back to the doctor on Thursday. I had not dilated further and it appeared that the contractions had stopped. Everything looked normal with the baby. I am now released to do "light activity". Praise the Lord!

My due date is June 3rd. The doctor says I need to make it at least until May 13th. Murphy's law: Joshua will not arrive until after the due date!
