Just a very quick update. I had a prenatal exam yesterday at my new care provider in town. It was absolutely amazing to hear the little one’s heartbeat for the first time ever. Kyle was unable to come to this one so we’re going to make it so that he can come to the next one in October. Our health insurance comes online October 1st and I have an appointment for October 9th. I’ll be meeting with one of the other midwives and we’ll also have an ultrasound.
Things on the job front have not changed as yet. I’m still applying and praying that the Lord brings something along for me to do until the baby comes so that we can save up a bit of money.
I’m also seriously praying about going back to school either in the spring or next fall part time. I’ll be working towards an associates degree in nursing through the local school which is attached to the hospital near our apartment. And before you begin protesting, I am well aware of the facts of how tired I will be with a new baby if I take classes in the spring semester. If that is the way that the Lord decides to lead us, then he’s given promise after promise to be my strength and peace and hope and sanity through it all. I’m not even remotely considering going back full time, but if I’m part-time, then I can keep the loan hounds at bay until I have a job that can pay them back.
The Lord is good; He provides for His children, and I am so grateful to be counted amonst the flock. Otherwise I would have had a meltdown long before now.
Peace and Blessings.
