Blog post from the hospital

Well, it appears that I jinxed myself in the previous post by proclaiming KB's late arrival.  During a routine doctor's appointment yesterday, the midwife saw severely low amniotic fluid.  So instead of heading home for the evening, she sent me right over to the hospital.  (Grrr.)  There have already been many opportunities to pray for all of your intentions (try having 5 IV sticking attempts).

By the way, it's super cool that our hospital has free wireless.  How appropriate to post from here. :)

So we were faced with 2 difficult decisions: have a C Section or induce labor.  Because I had only dilated to a mere 1 cm, the latter choice meant a potential for 1 day of induction plus 1 additional day of labor.  After some prayer and consult with each other and my mom, we decided to go for a C section.  That will happen late today, so any prayers are welcome.  I will ask my hubby to post a pic of the baby when things settle down. :)

Thanks for your encouragement and many prayers!

Praying for you and new baby and can't wait to see pics and hear the official announcement. Asking for prayers on the way to the hospital was extremely helpful to me and all of your prayers def carried me through. I hope the same is true for you! I am glad they caught the low fluid early! Five IV attempts-oh my!
