The Baby Update

Today was our big doctor's appointment! Thank you all for your prayers! Here's the latest:

I'm dialated to a three, and now, the doctors are going to allow me to go past my due date! (Which is kind of exciting and disappointing all at the same time. I was just so hopeful that today we'd schedule a time for my water to be broken in the next day or so!) The reason they are allowing me to go a few days longer is because baby JJ is healthy and the doctor I saw today said, "You are ready to have this baby. He is coming and I don't think we need to interrupt what is already happening naturally." Soooo... now we wait. wink. God has answered our prayers- it doesn't look like a c-section is a necessary option now! We need to trust in His timing and rest in the assurance that JJ will arrive exactly when the Lord has planned!

"Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." - Psalm 139:23-24


  1. Woohoo for a 3 and allowing you to go naturally...an answer to prayers for sure! Love you dear friend! Praying tonight is a special night with your girlies before your little man arrives!

  2. YAY!!!!You go Girl!!!Keep us posted if you can. What hospital will you be at? Would love to come visit. How are the girls holding up?? I bet they are soooo excited!! Love ya Catherine

  3. I hate that I keep missing you at home! I'll be back Monday, hoping JJ will be here by then and that we can bring you a meal and hug your necks. :) Please keep me updated via Becky, including how you feel about visitors after you get home!
