April 26th Update

I had my weekly check-in with my ob today. I gained 2 pounds in the last two weeks (now I'm +4.5 lbs from the start of the pregnancy). My blood pressure is creeping up again and is at 130/90 but I told my doctor that I am done with bed rest. It hasn't seemed to have been helping much and when I move more Aaron moves more so he was ok with that. Aaron's heart rate was 130 bpm and then he moved and it jumped to between 140-150 bpm so that is a good sign that his heart is still working to pump in what he needs. He confirmed that we have surpassed all the odds and all the textbook cases and so we just keep watching and praying that his heart makes it long enough to get those grams he needs to be delivered. Another week down, forward we go!

Woohoo! Every day with Aaron here is a gift. What a blessing! Thanks so much for keeping us updated. I think of you guys often and keep your name on the temple prayer roll.
