Special Delivery

     We have been getting weekly biophysical profiles to make sure he is not in distress.  Basically it is an ultrasound that looks at his movement, tone, amniotic fluid level and breathing.  He did not do well at the appointment yesterday, so my physician decided to induce him.
     Well, we are excited to announce he has arrived!  He weighs 7 pounds 1 ounce and is 20 inches long.  We love him dearly.  We were praying that he would not have to go to the NICU, and our prayer has been answered.  There are no concerns at this time with his heart, another prayer answered!  Thank you all for all the prayers, love and support.  We are truly overwhelmed.  More pictures to come!

1 Samuel 1:27 "I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him."

Psalm 126:3 "The Lord has done great things for us; and we are glad."

Welcome to the circus!

We are FINALLY done with the nursery!  I chose a circus theme because it matched the curves of the bed that my dad made and I have used for each of my children.  The room could not be complete without a wreath to hang on the door.

     We went to the high risk doctor this week, for what I was hoping would be the last time.  He was looking at the growth and making sure the organs looked normal.  And...everything was great!  He is growing normally, weighs 6 pounds and everything else looked good!  On my check out slip, the doctor wrote "graduated!!"  I have never been so happy and relieved to leave a doctor's office.  Hopefully the last 3 to 4 weeks of pregnancy will be uneventful.
     We are trying to prepare ourselves mentally that he may require a stay in the NICU, but are praying that he will not need to be in the NICU and can come home when I am discharged.  Thanks again for all your prayers and support.   I will post pictures of the circus themed nursery soon!
