Our Girl at 20 Weeks

Yesterday I had my 20 week check-up. Per Dr. Moore, all is well. I am so thankful for that. Praise God for good news. Apparently my little kidney stone scare didn't have too much of an effect on little girl. She is good, moving alot and not being modest that she is a little girl! I was thankful when he told me that she still was a 'she'. You never know...
Thank you for praying for us and for your words of encouragement. We anxiously await her arrival and God's good blessings to come on our family. Have a great day!

20 Weeks and a Kidney Stone...

Good news...I made it to 20 weeks and am steadily growing.  Bad news...We think I have a kidney stone.  Yesterday at work I was having a pretty normal day until about 10 am when I got a bad pain on my right side that pretty much brought me to tears and made me so fidgety and uncomfortable I just couldn't do anything to get easy. So long story short, I was admitted to women's unit for the day by my Uncle Morris who happens to be my doctor as well :) for fluids and pain medication.  I resisted the pain medication at first, but when I just could not get comfortable for anything I decided I needed it.  I rested well until one more pain attack about 2 hours later. I had some more medication and rested well for the remainder of the afternoon. The ultrasound of my kidneys showed some congestion or colic on the right side. Definitive diagnosis for a stone would be shown on a CT scan but because of the baby, the Dr. decided not to expose us to radiation. Since I was pretty pain free from about 2 until 6 yesterday afternoon, besides some soreness and aches, Uncle Morris let me come home and not have to stay the night in the hospital.
Jeffery was great to stay with me the whole afternoon and keep me oriented when the pain meds had me asking the same questions over and over (which I don't really recall). We came home around 7 and I slept well the rest of the night with no more pain attacks. Hopefully the stone has entered my bladder now and it will pass. I will be watching for that...
When we left the hospital J told the nurses that we would not see them again until February. And hopefully he is right!

Over the last few months, Jeffery and I have gone through many changes...all for the better.  So I decided, why not create a blog and join this cyberspace world to keep people informed?  And, thats what I'm gonna do!
We found out in early June, June 3 to be exact, that we are expecting little Crabb #1 and oh so excited were we.  After several months of 'thinking about it' and then making the decision to really start trying to have a family, our prayers were answered.  I am due February 10, 2010 and steadily growing and adjusting to the joys and oddities of pregnancy.  Overall I think I have been fortunate to have a good pregnancy thus far.  Of course, I don't have anything to compare to at this point, but I feel good (except for the heartburn at night) and I have had only good reports each time I've been to the doctor.  We found out a few weeks ago that we are going to have a LITTLE GIRL which was big news to the Crabb family since thus far there have only been grandsons, 6 to be exact!  Little girl Crabb is coming in February, which to me seems like forever, but I know will be here way sooner than I think.  We have a lot of preparation to take care of in the next 20 weeks, but we trust that in God's good timing all will come together. 
Jeffery continues to stay busy at work and that is a blessing.  I know he is working hard and I can see the harvest of his work.  God is always faithful to provide.  J has been in Kentucky since Wednesday at a trailer convention.  He comes home Tuesday for which I am very ready!  I don't like the week long trips of him being gone.  But this too shall pass...

Psalm 118:28-29 You are my God and I will give you thanks.  You are my God , I will exalt you.  Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love endures forever. 

Have a wonderfully blessed day...
