Early Labor?

This week has been relatively quiet in the contraction department for Anna Marie. She has continued to work on projects and eagerly anticipate her baby’s arrival.

Last night, though, things began to take another twist. Contractions came steadily, and they continued, instead of stopping after a few hours. Intensity has increased. It seems early labor has started. Obviously we don’t know if this will go on for one day, or two, or perhaps stop and then start back up. But, at least progress is being made! Anticipation is building!

Thank you for praying for Anna Marie as she approaches Baby’s birth. She is calm, trustful, and waiting on the Lord.


“I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.”

–Psalms 22:10

  15. Good thoughts for a labor that isn’t too draining or painful. I hope Christopher will be with her when the baby is born.

    Prayers for a safe delivery into the arms of Anna and Christopher.

  16. So excited! Anna Marie and Christopher look so happy and content on this picture.

    Thank you for the update and looking forward to seeing the little one.

    Praying for safe delivery. God bless you.

  17. Praying for them all and I hope they are holding baby Maxwell, (if not already) in their arms soon!! 🙂

  18. I am very happy for Anna and Christopher. Praying that she has a safe, not too labourous delivery. Cannot wait to see pictures of the new family. Since Christopher is an excellent photographer, I imagine he is excited to to have a new little subject for photography sessions! Again, best wishes to the new parents – and extended family members!
