During our time in the hospital, we really got to see experience the Lord's provision for us. The timing of it all was just incredible. My pregnancy was just getting to the stage where I start to feel a little better. Two of our nurse friends worked on the station where we were. For the first couple of days, they rotated day/night shifts and we got to have friends close by during the critical days. It was so encouraging having someone you know there. The care we received was really great. The doctors took extra precautions with Z and it was great to see them really interested in how she was doing. We got our our own private room the 2nd day we were there, which meant peace and quiet, another huge blessing! Even though being in the hospital with your sweet baby is very hard, we feel very blessed for how God took care of us.
After 10 days, we were more than ready to get home. All we had to do to take care of Z was put lotion on two times a day and use baby oil in the bath tub. Now, about three weeks later, she's got sweet baby skin again! She has one little spot on the top of her foot that is still peeling, but other than that she's back to normal. It was crazy how her skin peeled off - on her back, chest, hands, feet, neck! I'm thankful not to have all those skin flakes around the apartment anymore! :)
This week marks the halfway point of my pregnancy. Hard to believe I am halfway there. Sometimes it seems like time stands still and other times it's just zooming by! Last Wednesday, we had another doctor's appointment to see Baby #2. Still no news on what we are having. But baby is healthy and moving around, so that's the important part. I was pretty bummed about not finding out what we are having. In less than two weeks, we have an appointment where they check the baby's organs and hopefully then with the better technology, they'll be able to tell us what we are having.
Things are moving right along on the house front as well. We got approved for a bank loan! It's great to have that part checked off. Tomorrow, we have a meeting about the house with pretty much everyone involved in regards to the big things around the house (electric, water, foundation, basement, etc.). We will probably get a date then for when they will actually start!! So exciting! I can't wait for things to get rolling there. Poor hubby has been working so hard for our house and planing and organizing sooo very much. I'm so thankful for a husband, who is so diligent and such a hard worker!
