Nothing new yet

It seems like forever since I have had a doctors appointment, but unlike in the past when I feared I had something to worry about, that is not the case now.  Avery has been waking me up at night as she does her flips and kicks and hits.  I love it, but at the same time...miss my sleep.  My friends keep saying, welcome to my new life of being kept up late with a newborn.  I just thought I wouldn't have to worry about that until she arrived.  Nonetheless, it's amazing to feel her as much as I do.  We go to the specialist this Friday followed by our regular OB apt. next week.  I am in this place of totally excitement to finally get to meet her and the idea that she is REALLY COMING!  At the same, I often fight the reminder that we are not out of the woods yet.  We still have no idea what challenges we are going to be facing once she arrives.  I continue to pray and ask that my faithful few blog friends continue to pray with me for TOTAL healing of this little girl. I am already amazed and overwhelmed at what He has done so far.  I am so looking forward to holding her and having her in my arms this summer.  I know it will be here faster than I can imagine.  It's just after a 3 year wait filled with lots of loss, the waiting period is becoming harder and harder.
