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.
