What a wonderful July 4th weekend we had. We got to take a vacation, just the three of us (well 4 if you count the one in tow). We went to Lost Pines Hyatt Resort in Bastrop and had a very relaxing time. Then we headed out to my in-laws to celebrate 4th of July/ Gram's Birthday. Kaylee had a blast with all her cousins and we enjoyed more family time. We had the sad realization that this trip might be the last trip we take for a while. I have been having some contractions and cramping so we don't want to push anything.

On Tuesday after getting back from a nice long weekend we were working on cleaning up the house and continuing to get Carson's room ready. I think our emotions got the best of Charles and I because after looking at his precious room (pictures to come) and the realization of how soon he will be here we both broke down. This is so hard because you want so bad to be excited about the arrival of your son, but in the same sense you are scared to death. The up and down emotions can really wear you out. This where our friends, family, and faith step in and help us. Without them and everyone’s support we don't know how we could do it.

Yesterday I had another OB appointment and my belly is measuring right on par. I am dilated 1cm so they did the fetal fibronectin test again and the results were negative, so this is good news. This test lets them know if I am going into pre-term labor (here is a link for those wanting to know more Praying our little guy will stay in at least 5 more weeks. Next week we have 3 doctors appointments for Carson so we will find out more than.

As we come closer to the arrival of Carson, we need prayers more than ever. I am such a planner and the unknown is really hard for me. This is definitely a journey that is not going to be easy, but I am hoping will be full of so many blessings.


  1. So glad to hear the test results were negative. Praying for your sweet family!

  2. We are continuing to pray for you.. glad the results were negative. You guys are one of the strongest couples we know - Carson is very blessed to have you as parents.
