Corey and I wanted to pass on a prayer request. Last Saturday I started having Braxton Hicks and then I continued having pain all week. I finally decided to go to the doctor on Thursday so we could be sure that everything was okay. I was sure that it was just stretching and growing pains. The doctor said that my cervix was softening. Since I am only 24 weeks it is obviously too early for this to be happening. I have been put on a modified bed rest which means that I can go to church and do a couple of other special activities but no teaching, youth trips or other activities that would not allow me to lay down and rest when I started feeling pressure. I am sure that everything will be fine and that I won’t deliver this baby until I am 42 weeks! I just wanted to pass this along in hopes that you would remember this baby in your prayers and that it will not get in a hurry to make its appearance in the world.
