An update

We are still very busy around here. We have a contract on a new house (that I love!) and have been doing inspections, etc and we're starting to pack for the move at the end of the month. This entire house selling/buying process has gone so smoothly that I know God's hand must be in it. I am continuously amazed at how perfectly everything is working out. We are so thankful for everyone who has been praying for us!

I had another OB appointment yesterday with an ultrasound. I guess an early ultrasound is standard practice these days. Button looks healthy but something did show up on the ultrasound. There was some bleeding behind the placenta. My doctor said it is common and usually is not a problem but it could also be a sign of a threatened miscarriage. I'm supposed to go back for another ultrasound in two weeks and I'm supposed to take it easy in the mean time.

I know I've asked for a lot of prayers lately, but would you please continue to pray for Button and for a healthy pregnancy? I'm trying not to worry about it and leave it all in God's hands, but it's hard.

On the nausea front, I've actually been feeling a little better the last couple of days. Normally that would be very exciting, but with the threat of a miscarriage, it makes me wonder if it's a sign that something is going wrong. My pregnancy symptoms are not gone (which I know would be a bad sign) but the nausea is less. Is it possible for morning sickness to go away before the 12 week mark (I'm at 8 1/2 weeks now)? In my last two pregnancies, morning sickness lasted until 19 and 22 weeks, respectively. Of course, it was much more severe during those pregnancies as well.

If anyone could share stories of their own personal experiences with morning sickness, I would appreciate it. I just want to know that what I'm feeling is normal!

Thank you!

I will definitely be praying for you. Try not to worry. Whith each pregnancy my time of nausea has shortened. I will keep you in my prayers.

I will keep you and Button in my prayers.
My experience with morning sickness is that it always lasted until about 20 weeks. (Yuck.) Henry was very mild, though, and his would come and go every few days. I can't even remember how long it lasted, to be honest. Too busy, I suppose. :)
With my two miscarriages I had very little to no nausea. So, the fact that you were nauseated at all is good, I think.

Great news on the house situation! What a blessing to have everything going to smoothly right now.

I don't know you but clicked on the link for your blog from my friend's Chronicles of Jamesnia blog. I have 2 children, and with the youngest, when I was about as far along as you I had some spotting, cramping, and lessening of nausea occur all around the same time. I know exactly what you're feeling; my doctor told me to go in for an ultrasound also just to make sure, and so I did- but everything turned out wonderfully and there was no problem. I now have a very happy and healthy 1 year old! Although I remember that scare in the beginning and at other times along the way for different reasons, so you're definitely not alone! Hang in there, I'm sure everything will be just fine! Oh - also, my cousin who has 3 children - she had a LOT of bleeding early in her pregnancy with the 3rd and the doctor basically told her that she was having a miscarriage and they were going to do an ultrasound just to make sure everything came out and that nothing was left in accidentally by her body (they assumed there was no way she could have NOT had a miscarriage with all of the blood) but when they ultrasounded her there was her sweet little daughter, alive and well - and she's now 4 years old and just fine! So, don't worry, I'm sure yours will be just another story with a happy ending :))

Lillian & Jill - Thanks for the encouragement!

Bobbi -
Thank you for stopping by and commenting! Your comment is very reassuring since your situation sounds very similar to mine. Some encouraging words and a little hope make all the difference in my day!
