((outfit schmoutfit)) a shirt dress & prayers?

There's not much I love more in my closet than a good shirt dress. Classic, a bit retro, easy to outfit, and a breeze to layer. This one is a weird neutral...kind of a grey-ish-purple-hued-brown, but it's a blank slate for accessories so I can't complain. 


I had my 28 week glucose test this week and I passed! No gestational diabetes up in this crib. Plus, my iron levels are "superb," so I'm thankful for that as well. I have an ultrasound on Monday to see if my Placenta Previa is still a problem. Please pray that my placenta has has moved so I can go forward with a standard delivery vs. a C-section. If it hasn't moved, at least I get to see my Little One!

Did I just ask thousands of people to pray for my placenta? Oh, yes I did. Also, that is such a disgusting word in my book.

Ultimately, the Lord is in control so if He wants me to have a medical birth, that's what is going to happen AND whatever is best for the baby is A-Okay with me. I guess I just have a hard time scheduling such a medical birth when my body was made to do this, ya know? Anywho, here's the baby bump at 28 weeks :)

  5. I will totally pray for your placenta. We asked people to pray for sphincter control and strong legs for our baby. That's a gross word too. Good luck and have fun sneaking a peek at your babe!

  21. I will definitely be praying for you!!! What I found with each of my kid's births, was that it really came down to me surrendering my heart to the Lord and allowing Him to let each birth pan out to His glory. Both were beautiful, natural births, but first He wanted my heart! :) :)
    ps-- you look absolutely adorable!! :)
