What happen a year ago today?

Through out my pregnancy I was asked time and time again "when would I stop working". My plan was to work up until LeAnne was born but that's not quite how it turned out. A year ago today, Sept 20th, 2007 was the last day I worked. I was placed on bed rest after my afternoon doctor appointment due to my high blood pressure. It's hard to believe that I have not worked outside of the home for a whole year. The original plan was for me to return to work when LeAnne was 6 months old so it's been a huge blessing to have been able to be home with her almost a year. Although I would not recommend any new mom look for a new job while learning how to be a mom because it is very stressful. I love this picture. This is where I spent the last few weeks of my pregnancy. I had to check my blood pressure 3 times a day, had weekly, then bi-weekly doctor apts, ultrasounds and non-stress tests. Looking at my belly I miss being pregnant. It was so amazing to feel my little girl growing inside of me. There were many times during our infertility journey that I didn't think I would ever be able to experience this miracle so I feel very blessed. Our God is so GREAT! I am so thankful God blessed us with our precious daughter!!
