SUNDAY NIGHT UPDATE

It is 11:40 and Greg and I are just chilling watching some TV before we try to get a little sleep. The nurses think that most likely he is head down at this point... (There was some confusion on doing an ultrasound tonight... I KNOW that was the plan... but apparantly they would have had to call the doc on call in for that... so instead of doing that they just checked to see if it felt like he is head down. Needless to say, he isn't engaged being as he is stilll turning from head up to head down all the time... so it wasn't easy to feel where he was at position wise... that was no fun:(

I so have to say that I have spent so much time trying not to get my hopes up that I really have not prepared for labor at all. This leaves me a little more worried than normal. And of course Samuel's birth leaves me with its fair share of concern. I have already had one good cry. Greg and I prayed together and I am feeling better right now. I think because I haven't really spent anytime preparing for the birth itself... I truly can not believe that we are at that point and in the labor process:) CRAZY!!


I am really thankful that he was head down... Praise God that we didn't have to make a decision on whether or not to try to turn him... the decision was made for us:) Yay God!

We will try to update at some point tomorrow:)

Can't wait to meet our Levi soon....

OK. So my first comment was early this morning, and I didn't have much time to write because I was trying to get the kids up for school. But I want you to know that I'm filled with emotion for you today. Emotions across the board!

I'm SOOOOO excited for you and your family. I can't wait to get the news that Levi is here safe and sound, healthy and alive. I seriously might do the ugly cry of joy! I can't think of you without getting a huge lump in my throat and tears in my eyes.

I will pray for your labor today if in fact that's the way things turn out. I think you haven't really prepared for that part of this journey because your brain and heart just couldn't go there until now. It's part of emotional survival I think. One step at a time. And today it will be one contraction at a time...

I also want you to know that I'm remembering Samuel today. He is not forgotten during this joy of Levi's life and birth. He's such a special part of your family and he has touched my life, too. He and Grady brought us together as friends. I will remember Samuel forever!

Love and (((HUGS)))) to you! Wish I could be closer, but my thoughts are with you all day!

You have a multitude of people praying for you and that little boy today. I pray that this delivery is a healing experience and you get to experience the joy of childbirth again. Praying for Levi's safe arrival! Thanks for sharing your story on your blog, it's an amazing story and a blessing to share in it with you. I'm 21 weeks pregnant and had my first "labor" dream last night...I'm thinking it's because I went to bed praying for little Levi's arrival!
