Well today was my last doctor’s appointment before Faith’s arrival. My prayers have been long and hard over what to do should today’s appointments mirror the last 4. Today my sweet doctor looked at me again with a face of sheer remorse (like maybe she was to blame) and told me once more that I am not the least bit dialated and still “thick.” For weeks I’ve had contractions and pain, Faith is constantly on the move but nothing.
Taking into consideration that with Asher I had to have a medicine that softened my cervix before going into labor on my own, it seems that my body can’t seem to work through that stage. Only God knows and only God knows if she’ll arrive before the scheduled induction on Wednesday. However, I am at peace with the decision to go forward with having her. I can not wait to stare into her beautiful face and count her perfect fingers and toes.
The ultrasound today to check my fluid levels showed her a pretty good size. Asher was 7lbs 1 oz. I am sure she will be bigger the question remains how much. I covet all of your prayers and thank all of you for your prayer support up til now.
My life’s verse: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord. ‘plans to prosper you and not to you harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.'”
