Take it Easy....
The clip at the end of the post just fit too well. It's one of my favorite movies and this line...well, it is just very fitting. Take it easy. That's what I'm being told to do. That's a little hard when you have a two year old and a house to take care of. AND when you are horrible at asking for help. But to keep these babies healthy, and per doctors orders...I have to. And I will. What a humbling experience. No...I really haven't asked for help too much yet with the things I was told I needed to...but this is a first step right! :) Housework. Laundry, Cleaning, Dishes etc. My sweet selfless hubby has been coming home from work and doing most of these things on a daily basis. But I know he's exhausted. He's also taking two classes right now, headed toward having enough for ordination if he chooses that path. So, on top of full time Worship Pastor working way more than 40 hours a week, the classes and taking care of Jack and I...he's pooped. But he would never say it. So...yeah, I would love some prayer. Pray that we can find a good balance, pray that we can be humble and seek help and pray for helpers! :) Everyone else is so darn busy, it's just life. But I have two babies and Jack to take care of...and so I'm gonna do what it takes. Second trimester should be a bit easier, but I was told basically I would have 3 months and then I need to put myself on semi-bedrest....3rd trimester is where so much could happen that we are praying against! Thanks for your prayers! I can feel them! Here are a couple new ultrasound pictures! (It was after these and another quick unexpected trip to the Dr. that I was scolded) :)
