Day 403

My sweet, sweet baby boy...you have made a footprint on my heart.


Rebekah had a doctor's appointment, today, which landed her in the hospital...again. I think she likes to make my heart race. I didn't freak out nearly as much, this time. We're packed and ready to go... we would, however, miss the birth, so we're praying that baby boy sits tight for a couple more weeks!

Rebekah and baby are doing good. Rebekah was having sharp abdominal pain and the doctor's office thought she may have a ruptured placenta. Some quick testing revealed that the placenta was fine, but that she is contracting (even though she hasn't felt much). She wasn't admitted - not severe enough. I think they chalked the pain up to muscle spasms.

I'm so nervous we're not going to make it...but so THRILLED that he wants to come. I can't wait to shower those precious feet with kisses.

EEEEEK! We're so excited! :)

  3. I can't wait for the post that tells us about when you get to hold him in your arms...it is the best thing in the world to hold your baby and see them for the first time, you will inspect every eyelash and every fingernail and every inch of him, and the wonder of it will amaze you. Good luck, I'm praying that everything goes in your favor and you can be there for the birth :)

    I am so excited for you. I remember when I first started reading your blog I would pray before I clicked on your link on my blog, I wanted you to be a mommy so bad. Now it's almost here and I pray now for a healthy baby boy, for Rebekah to have an easy labor and for God to hold her in his tight arms as she gives you this awesome gift, and for you to make it there on time! Big hugs!
