Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. I've had a picture perfect pregnancy up until this past Monday, May 1st, 2017 when I failed my 1 hour glucose test and I started feeling not quite right overall. I rested alot and prepared myself for the 3 hour glucose test a few days later. Found out on Thursday afternoon that I failed that test as well so I was diagnosed with Gestastional diabetes (which I've never had) and was to meet with a dietician come this Monday, May 8th, 2017. Thursday evening I was having mild cramping that would come and go and a low fever so I called my Dr and they suggested I drink lots of water and rest as much as I could (which I did) and if I got worse or more consistent to go in. By bedtime I felt great and I slept really well actually. Friday, May 5th, 2017 I woke up and had severe abdominal pain and a contraction that I could get no relief from no matter what I did and then it stopped and the heavy bleeding came. I yelled for Nate (who thankfully had the day off and was home) and he grabbed the kids as I called 911 for an ambulance. And thats where this has all begun.
I started this page because I can update regularly without flooding facebook and hopefully keep a dairy of our long journey as we wait for baby boy #5 to arrive and after he's born 💙 Thank you for prayer, thoughts, concerns, and encouragement already!
