Doc Appointment Update Aug 25

Well thanks for your prayers everyone, I can honestly say that for the first time in a while I am feeling really at peace and ready for delivery. Don't get too excited, we still have about 4 weeks to go, but I am more and more ready to meet our little girl and enjoy the time we have with her. It is really a blessing not to be scared of all of the unknowns we are facing, I know that is a gift from Heaven above!

Our doctor's appointment went fine. Evie's condition is the same, her little arms and legs are farther behind than last week, and the amniotic fluid level is rising. She has a full head of hair, on ultrasound it looks like she has a little halo around her sweet head (: I have about a 20% chance of going into pre-term labor because of the fluid... I'm not too concerned about that with the exception that if my water breaks it's not going to be pretty (extra fluid... you get the picture). So I'll be bringing a sweater to tie around my waist everywhere I go... just in case!!! When we were talking about induction the word "tidal wave" was thrown around between John and my doc referring to if they break my water... which was funny until I thought about it happening spontaneously - which is not funny!

Other than that I have started subbing and helping out at my dad's office a little which is a great break from staying home, and John's work is going well. Lyla is being so great, her bouts of the "terrible twos" are very few and far between. I hear a 3 year old is a "well trained 2 year old" but she is such a softie I am praying that she skips the terribleness altogether. Those of you who have kids are probably laughing, but I can hope right!?

Thanks again for your prayers, I posted delivery prayer requests a few days ago, if you want to check those out. Other than that I am sleeping well, eating well, and feeling altogether pretty good. Praise God!

Love you friends, thanks for checking in (:


  1. We're here for you. Praying every day...I know we have never known eachother well...but really...if you need anything at all, please let me know.

  2. Still holding you all in our prayers! Too funny about skipping the "terrible" altogether! I think you got it right when you said a three year old is a well trained 2 year old though!

  3. Praying for you all the time! Thank you for being so transparent and sharing with us this journey that God is leading you through.

  4. wow. There's really not much more to say. Praise God. He is certainly capable of more than we can ask or imagine. I can't wait to pass this on to my friends who are praying for you. Love you so, and looking forward to meeting Evie :)
