Prayer Request

I am not feeling to good today. I have been dealing with tachycardia (fast heart rate, over 100) for a few weeks now. When I told my OB about it almost 3 weeks ago it had only happened a couple of times. Now it is at the point that I consistently feel like I have run around the block a few times---my heart races, I am out of breath and then my head starts swirling.

I had a cardio appointment scheduled for Wednesday but switched it tomorrow morning. I spoke to the nurse there and she said to take it easy between now and then and if it gets worse to go to the ER.

I don't want to have to resort to the ER. I do think I can hold out to tomorrow morning but that means I am going to have to sit my butt down on the couch or bed until then. Easier said then done. I end up feeling guilty about that. I am a mom after all.

So I am asking for prayer. I would like prayer for safety for me and baby Nicholas. Prayer that I would have wisdom in all I do. Prayer that the doctor will have wisdom on how to deal with this (which BTW, I dealt with when I was pregnant with Zachary. The reason back then was increased blood volume). And prayer for the family, especially my hubby who will have to do more around here.

I'll be praying for you, Nicholas & the rest of the crew. I've done pregnancy bedrest, and it's so worth it...

Hang in there!!
