one last picture


Just wanted to post one last belly shot for you all before our Boo joins us!  (Side note, I now measure 50 1/2 inches around...)  How do I know it's the last photo?  Well, today around 5pm, Boo will make his debut!  After lots of prayer, thinking & talking about it, we have decided that the risks, what-if's, & possible complications just aren't worth a second VBAC.  We will be leaving for the hospital around 2:30pm today for scheduled C-section.  And I have to say, I have such a peace about it, it's awesome!  I love when you are following your Father's will, and you know it!

Yesterday Cam & I met with my dr who gave us lots more info, answered our questions & sent us off to make a decision.  Thankfully we didn't have to try and make this big decision with our two girls needing our attention.  Cam had arranged a babysitter (last week, before any of this decision stuff came up) so we could go out & celebrate my birthday.  We talked non-stop on our way to the restaurant & I knew by the time we arrived what I wanted to do.  It was awesome, I felt like a weight had been lifted (not the big one in my belly, but that will happen in less then 12 hours now...).

We very much appreciate all your prayers.  Thank you for reading my  BLOG & leaving such encouraging messages.  It's a blessing to see all your sweet messages!  Hopefully there will be internet access at the hospital so Cam can update this BLOG after our boy is born.  Until then, God Bless you!

Yaaayyyyy!!!! Praise God for the peace He's given you. I'm going away today and tomorrow but I'm definitely taking my laptop so I can be introduced to Boo. I just told my hubby that it seems like yesterday you announced you were pregnant. How time flies (for those of us who aren't carrying the baby) :)
Many prayers will be lifted for you and Boo today.
