Yes, you read that right folks! Tomorrow is the day! I am so very excited! I was planning a home birth but you know what sometimes our ways are not the Lord's ways.

This morning I was putting on make-up and noticed that I was starting to look like an oompa loompa I was swelling a little bit more in my face. I texted my midwife and she said to go get my blood pressure taken so we did. It was higher than normal so she told me to go and rest. Well, I started to get a head ache so we went and took it again less than two hours later and it had gotten significantly higher. So, off to the hospital we went realizing that it was likely I might have to be induced.

Once at the hospital my blood pressure went down (thank the Lord for that) but it was decided due to my swelling, irregular contractions and that I am overdue tomorrow would be the day. Tomorrow I will be induced. Tomorrow at this time I may be holding my son!


I am excited! I am going to be with my christian midwife in the hospital and ALSO my doctor is a woman (which is just a neat God thing) AND she is a christian as well!

God is so good!

So tomorrow-we will leave the house 9ish am and the induction will begin around 10-10:30 am. Prayers are appreciated for sure :) Just that the baby and I will be safe and that the Lord will be honored and glorified in and through me as this baby comes into this world!

So here I am 40 weeks the last day of my pregnancy:

This is definitely the end of one chapter in life and the beginning of another...I can hardly wait to see what tomorrow brings :)

  2. Ah, so, so excited for you! I was induced too, and it's not so bad - it's kind of nice actually to know when they are coming, because then you can do your makeup and hair and look all pretty for your baby's arrival - because, you know, that's important. Ha! Praying for a smooth and safe labor and delivery! I'll be stalking your Facebook for updates. :-)
