Well, it seems that my battle cry has Mr. Blood Pressure quaking in his boots for the time being. He has retreated! Really, I'm quite sure it was not my little pep talk that put him in his place so much as God hearing our fervent prayers and those of our friends and family. Thanks so much to everyone who has been praying for us. Keep 'em comin'!
On a side note, today actually marks the exact point in the pregnancy that I was at when I delivered Eli. So, I'm very relieved to have gotten a good report from the doctor today and that Tessa will be hangin' out in my belly for longer than he did. Who knows? Maybe I'll deliver late and have a 10 pound baby this time around. A mama can dream.... :)
