Can you believe I am posting again? Twice in the span of 24 hours???
Well there might be a heck of a lot more (pictureless) blogging around here because I have been put on bedrest. Yay. (insert sarcastic tone)
Baby is swimming in a pool with not enough water, or in my doctor's terms, my amniotic fluid is low. The doctor said they often see that in moms who have been running around doing too much.
While it came as a surprise this morning, I have, at times, feared that this would be coming. It's been a crazy busy summer between all our moves and my sister's wedding that had me on my feet more than I would have liked. I can replay everything in my head, wrestle with the guilt and go through the should have, would have, could have's but I know I did my best to do what I had to do while still keeping the health of our baby in mind by moving slow, staying calm, taking breaks and resting when I could.
Ultimately, this little one's life is in God's hands. So here I lay, not sit, lay, praying, praying, praying that the Lord will replenish the fluid to the appropriate levels through rest and lots and lots of water and allow this baby to keep growing healthy and strong to full term.
When I used to imagine what it would like to be pregnant, never did I ever think how much of a faith builder it would be! Between the miscarriage, the fears I have battled through this pregnancy as a result of the miscarriage and now this, I realize more and more how much pregnancy requires complete and utter surrender, trust and reliance on God's sovereignty in all circumstances, no matter the outcomes.
Baby Robles is still on track in terms of growth and weight and he/she had a good strong heartbeat so pray with a little rest and a lot of liquids his/her little water home replenishes itself to keep him/her cozy and safe these last 8 weeks.
Hope your Monday is off to as relaxing (and less worrisome) of a start as mine has been :)
