Miss Sumpter & Mrs. Sumpter

We just wanted to let you all know that we had another doctor's appointment with the maternal fetal specialist this morning. We are very pleased and thankful to report that our little girl continues to grow and develop. She is still on the small side, but she is keeping up a regular pace and looks great. God is very good.

However, Jenny's blood pressure has continued to rise, and the doctors have now advised complete bed rest. Everyone wants all of Jenny's energy put into "baby baking."

We thank you all for your prayers and encouragement to us. We are all in good spirits and enjoying some enforced family time! It's looking like Jenny's mom will be able to come out in the next few weeks to help with the kids and other household chores, and we are very thankful for this. God is good.

Please continue to pray for the little girl that she would continue to grow and develop, and for Jenny's blood pressure to stabilize (and go down!). In particular, we are praying that she be able to make it to 36 or 37 weeks where the doctors say there is much less concern for the baby's safety and health. Jenny is 30 weeks this week. Our little girl is also breech, so we're praying that she is compliant does some gymnastics in the next few weeks.

Please rejoice with us at God's kindness and join us in prayer for all these matters.
