We continue to rejoice as each day passes. Melanie is now almost 34 weeks. Each week is an exciting mile-marker as this baby stays inside. Thank you for your continued prayers.
Contractions seem to be picking up some but so far are manageable and don’t require bedrest or added medical care!!!!
We did a hospital tour last week. While there we asked to see the NICU — not out of a true desire to see it but out of wanting to be a little bit prepared should we need it. Without going into whether we liked this NICU (ok… we didn’t… different hospital from our previous times) we so long to *not* need a NICU for this baby. We hope the child can be spared the trauma and added “care” a NICU brings; it also means that Abigail’s momma isn’t away from her for very long – both of which are very important to us.
It just so happens Melanie has started to get flowers about every two weeks or so. I’m looking forward to seeing her get her 34 and then a 36 week bouquet!
Specific prayer requests:
-Once we pass 34.5 weeks, we have a choice of two hospitals. Neither is conveniently located. Which one is God’s will?
-Child’s name – names are very important to our God.
Thank you for praying.
