More blessings and whoosh, whoosh, whoosh!

Today has been an excellent day!  I have had no depression today...not any at all!  What a huge relief!  I mentioned earlier that I had been having more depression with this pregnancy than with the other kiddos.  Well, it's time to tell the truth...I have been pretty overwhelmed and have had a significant amount of depression during this pregnancy.  I know most of my posts here are pretty positive and upbeat, but the reality is that almost every day I struggle with feelings of depression.  I visited with my doctor about it, and she said that there are really no safe antidepressants to take during pregnancy, and she was amazingly understanding but asked if I thought I could tough it out.  I told her I could, but honestly, there have been some days when I felt like it was nearly impossible.  Today being a depression-free day has been amazing...I'm praying for many more days like this!

I went to the clinic for my evaluation with the nurse practitioner and dietitian today, and I was so excited when she whipped out the Doppler again!  I got to hear the baby's sweet little whoosh, whoosh, whoosh (you have to say those really fast when you read this) of a heartbeat.  The BPM were 160 today, they were 145 on Tuesday.  I am in LOVE with that sound!

We've had a couple more little financial blessings happen, and I am just amazed at all of the things that have worked out just since we took our house off the market.  I think God was just waiting on us to be obedient so he could pour out some blessings!

Hi Karrie!

Just a little birdie saying...I would pop over to my blog today if I were you! :-)


By the way, I've peeked around your blog just a bit, and I have a 5th grade girl, too!
