We'll have a baby today!

Well I am still progressing and the baby is now totally breach. Because my water can break at any second they are scheduling me for a c-section at 3;30. They wanted to do it sooner, but I had another steroid shot yesterday and they are hoping I'll wait till 3:00 so it can have it's full effect on his lungs.

I really wish we could have put this off a little longer. I was praying to make it until he was 32 weeks, but he just won't listen. We are 2 days away from hitting 31 weeks. They are estimating him to weigh around 2-3 pounds. He is going to be tiny, but I know he will be strong. Everyone has done as much as they can and I know we have a lot of prayers coming our way! Thank you everyone for all of your love and support.

We will be a family of 4 TODAY!

As you know, we've been right where you are. You helped us so much with Wryder and I really wish I was there with you to help you. I know you have a great family that will take excellent care of you. I hope it helps to know that our little jail breaker is doing great. Your guy will do the same, I'm sure of it. Best of luck on your delivery and we can't wait to see pictures and read updates on your brand new bundle of joy! xoxo

I haven't checked your blog forever and I just talked with Brady tonight. Congrats on the birth of your baby boy! I hope all continues to go well, with his health and your recovery from a c-section and everything else you're all dealing with. Our prayers are with you guys! Feel free to call or email me anytime if you want to talk about anything. There's a lot on your plate, but I know you'll get through this!
