Today was my 38 week doctors appointment, it was a little bit different than normal but I will get into later.
McKenna is doing great, her heart rate was 137 and my belly measured right at 37cm. I showed a little more progress, but nothing too exciting. Maybe we will have a baby next week, but who knows.
Addison had a stomach virus on Monday and I got it last night. I will spare the details but will say it was the sickest I have ever felt. I was really worried about McKenna because movements were down (she is awake more during the day). So today at my appointment I told Dr. Solomon everything that had been going on. He decided to give me two liters of fluids and anti-nausea medication via an iv. I am starting to feel better, but now Brian is feeling sick. My parents are watching Addison tonight so we can rest.
The good news is that McKenna is ok, everything else in manageable. Turns out the body is pretty amazing and will make sure the baby has everything she needs and I get the left overs, haha.
Brian and Carrie have been married since January 2004. We love the Lord and are blessed with wonderful friends and a supportive, loving family. In July 2009 we welcomed our first daughter, Addison Rose. She is a spunky, fun toddler and we love her so much. Sweet McKenna Noelle was born on Christmas Day 2010. Having two children 17 months apart is a little crazy, but that is our life and we would not change it for the world.
Our families theme scripture is "Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18
Our life since getting married has been an amazing journey and hope you enjoy reading about it.
