An overdue update...

I must confess, I really haven't been in the mood to blog lately. Maybe it's just because I've been so busy trying to get all my Christmas stuff done. Or maybe it's just because I haven't had that much energy lately...or said energy happens to be used up on a very active 2 year old...
Anyway, the doctor took me off of bedrest at my last visit a week and a half ago. My blood pressure is still high, but she said that she wants me to start monitoring it at home. She said that most likely, I will have this problem throughout the entire pregnancy. She also said not to worry yet, we will just have to wait and see. In February I will have my monthly checkup with a doctor in Anchorage who specializes in high risk pregnancies. My doctor would just like to get a second opinion about my condition to make sure that she hasn't overlooked anything.
One thing I do know for sure...this is it. No more pregnancies for this lady. It's way too hard on me, physically and emotionally. After this pregnancy is over, I will be blessed with two wonderful children. And if for some unfortunate reason this pregnancy fails...well, I will be devastated, but I will also remember just how lucky and blessed I am to have my Gavin Marshall.
