Well I'm 19 weeks today. And I'm going to be honest with you. I'm scared. Yesterday at the doctor for my anatomy scan all was well, babies are 100% perfect and my cervix was long and closed with no funneling. However, the last few days I've had some very serious pain on my lower left side belly (uterus). It's so bad that last night at about 2:00am I almost woke my husband up to take me to the ER. I was able to hang in there and fall asleep but it was scary and this morning things are not a ton better. I went to the chiropractor this morning which did help relieve some pain but right now I have myself parked on the couch trying to hang in there.
I'm doing my best to give this pregnancy to the Lord and trust that he will take care of this children. I have/am doing everything I can to keep these babies inside me and safe and he has to do the rest. I rest assure in his promises and am doing my best to work through the chronic pain I am having. I have no other choice but to trust God at this point.
My husband has been awesome this whole time and has really picked up the slack around the house. He's a great man. However, he leaves for a mission trip to Africa on Saturday for two weeks. I have two girls lined up to help me out while he is gone. One in the mornings to take the girls out of the house and let them have some fun and another girl to come over after they wake up from nap to help with dinner/bath and cleaning up the house. I'm so grateful. And I'm also super excited for my husband.
Please pray for my husband as he is traveling and doing the Lord's work and also for my health and the health of Nora and Nolan.
I also wanted to include a picture of the babies from the anatomy scan yesterday (Nolan on top Nora on the bottom)
