I had my routine doctor visit this morning. Weight gain is good (only about 21 pounds) and Taylor sounds great, the only concern was some protein in my urine. The doctor wasn't overly concerned because my blood pressure was normal, but in all of my other 4 pregnancies I've never had this. I suppose I am more concerned because of what my sister just experienced (same symptoms- protein in the urine but normal b/p). She ended up being hospitalized for 3 days before finally being induced. As much as I am ready to meet Taylor and end this pregnancy, I don't want it to be under those circumstances.

I also have an ear infection, which is no fun. So do Teagan and T.G. We are all 3 on antibiotics although now tonight T.G. started running a fever. I'm not sure what to think now! I am hoping we are all feeling better by the time Monday rolls around. I've been sick since mid-January and I am ready to move on and get well!!

The doctor also reminded me that I could potentially be delivering in about 3 weeks. Holy cow! Where did the time go? I am not ready!! We found a house and put in an offer. We are still negotiating but in the interim lowered the asking price on our house hoping that it will sell soon. We've had lots and lots and lots of showings but the Lord still has not sent the right family. Perhaps He will soon. In the meantime, I am working on being content regardless of the outcome: whether we sell or whether we stay. I have been praying the Lord would just give wisdom and peace in this area. If we stay, do we construct a 4th bedroom from our current playroom?

Lots of prayers needed for this family: healing from sickness, wisdom in decision-making, and the Lord's will regarding our housing situation.

*I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. ~Psalm 34:1b
