C-section scheduled

I found on Friday that my boy is sort of pear shaped....normal sized head, big belly. I think of him affectionately as "Pudgy Pie". Anyway, what that all means is that he likely won't be born the traditional way. The doctor has scheduled a c-section for Joshua's birthmom on Tuesday, August 12th at 1:00. Of course, she may go into labor before that, as he is now full-term (37 weeks) and could come at any time. Even if he came now, they would most likely still do the c-section. I will be able to be there at the hospital, though not in surgery with her. I'm hoping to follow him to the nursery and watch those first few moments, and get lots of pictures. Unfortunately, you won't get to see them until later that evening. Chris plans on coming to the hospital after work that evening to spend a few hours with our baby. Then, assuming all goes well, we will come back later that week to pick him up and bring him home.

If you pray for us, we would appreciate prayers for good sleep and freedom from fear and worry. Those who know me know that my bent is toward worrying. I'm really working hard at not doing it, but it creeps in once in a while. I know that my God is in control and that He plans for my good. Thanks in advance for your prayers.

Praying, praying, praying! I know that these last few weeks can be wearisome.

What awesome news! It's going to be a hard wait for sure. You will be counting down the days and even minutes. Every phone call, your heart will plummet and then excitement will set in...

We are surely praying for you and cannot wait to see the pics on or before the 12th!

Congrats Mom and Dad!!!
