We are happy to announce that the Lord has blessed us with a surprise. We found out, April 24, that we are expecting our fourth child!! I am due December 30. So as many of you already know, that means anytime from Thanksgiving on for me! While my blood pressure has been great thus far, we did have a little scare this past week. I was having pain on my lower left side, so I had to have blood drawn on Thursday and then again on Sunday to verify that everything was proceeding normally and that I was not having an ectopic pregnancy. My doctor called at 7:55 this morning to let me know that this pregnancy is progressing normally, that the sac was in fact in the uterus as suspected from the ultra-sound, and in fact the hCG levels actually quadrupled; which is a very good sign. The pain was probably the result of a cyst that occurred during ovulation, and is of no concern now. Yeah, mommy and baby are healthy!
