A Miracle

I am so excited about the good news from my Dr appt today. There has been a dramatic improvement in my condition and the condition of my baby girl. My blood clot problem has almost completely resolved. It is now considered "inactive" and is very small, which compared to it's state just 4 weeks ago, is nothing short of a miracle. And my little baby girl is measuring right on size now. Since the clot has gotten so much smaller and isn't taking all my nutrients, she has been able to grow better. I had a feeling she'd be measuring bigger this time just based on my own growth. I've hit that point where you just feel solid and like there is no room to hardly even move. I look like a retard when I try and bend over and I can hardly eat half a meal before I feel like I've just filled any empty space there was. I honestly feel like I look twice as big as I look in this picture at 25 weeks.
There are still a few little issues but they are improving and minimal compared to the clot. I am so grateful for everyone that has been praying for me and especially for my little girl. I have been humbled and I have a new perspective on life. All the little aches and pains that come with pregnancy are nothing to fuss about. I'll take contractions and backache any day now that I know they shouldn't be related to the other more serious issues. I'm just so thankful to be carrying this healthy little girl! And just look at this adorable little footprint.
I'm so in love with her already!
