wow. the Lord is good. how many times did i doubt that i would make it this far? more than i care to admit. our prayers all along were to go to full-term. 37 weeks is considered full-term and we made it!! thank you Lord. however, we did revise our prayers several weeks ago asking that we go all the way to my scheduled c-section date of april 12 which is 39w + 1d. a couple reasons for this are so that my parents will be here and because i am very comfortable with my doctor. any other day that i go into labor between now and then would be with the doctor on call.
every day i get to carry this baby is a "yay God" moment for us. every day increases my belief that the Lord will allow us to take this baby home and become parents. matthew made us a mommy and a daddy but 'lil bug will take us into parenthood.
does that mean i don't have any fears of things that could go wrong between now and the day of the birth? absolutely not. but when i have those fears that creep into my mind i just have to give them over to the Lord.
"do not fear for I am with you..." isaiah 41:10
thank you for all of your prayers for this child. i am overwhelmed at the number of people that have prayed for us these last 9 months. i can't wait to tell 'lil bug about all the people out there that prayed for him/her. you all are such a special part of our family and our story.
