As you might have guessed, since I’ve away for a while, our new addition is here. Thank you so much for the prayers. God, once again, worked out everything perfectly and answered every single one of my prayers.
We had 3 wonderful ladies who were able to babysit for us. After the first lady came, my husband and I rushed to the hospital. It was Wednesday at 4:20 p.m.–rush hour. As we got closer to our hospital (and passed the two back-up hospitals) the contractions were getting closer and stronger. My doctor’s office said, “If you don’t make it, just pull over and call 911.” But I really didn’t want to deliver in our car! So I kept praying, “Please let us make it to the hospital.” For my last baby, I delivered 5 minutes after arriving in the delivery room. This time it was 20 minutes! Yeah! My doctor knew it was coming fast; my nurse told me later that she didn’t have a clue. (I dilated from 5 cm to delivery in about 15 minutes.)
So we have a precious new little boy! He was 7 lbs. 12 oz. and 21 inches. He’s nursing great and is already up to his birth weight. So many blessings! Praise the Lord!
