In like flynn

So after calling L&D at 6AM, 8AM, 11AM, and 1:30PM ... we finally were allowed to come on down at 2PM. We checked in and got the room prepped: wiped down every surface with Clorox wipes, unpacked some essentials, got the IV going, etc. By 4PM they started the Pitocin.

We are trying to keep me distracted and chatty until the real pain begins. So far, it's more hurry and wait.

It will probably be awhile until we update again - my hope is that next time it will be an announcement ... but that probably won't happen until tomorrow.

Thank you again for all of your prayers!

  6. Polly! My furbabies and I are snuggled in this beautiful northeast snow storm by the fire, waiting anxiously to hear the amazing, wonderful, blissfully happy and deliriously giddy news of your miraculous little bundle of pink or blue?

    And, of course, I'm sure I speak for all us followers that we'd love a pic with your smiling face holding the little bean. :)

  13. Yeah!!!! He is so cute! A little miracle for Christmas. This is just wonderful.
    Sorry I missed your shower, Amber, but I had a really bad case of the flu then.
    Hope to see you all soon,
    Marlene and Eric

    PS – How about Christopher since he was born so close to Christmas and he is a miracle after all.

  19. I had to stalk your DD group on FF to see your news! LOL. Will not spill the beans here, but CONGRATULATIONS on your miracle baby. I'm so glad that little one has finally made an appearance. You can know that your little baby has been formed by God and known by Him from before there was time and He has you all in His Almighty care. Love to you!

  20. Someone please spill the beans! Why leave us hanging? Some of us have been faithfully reading this blog and following the story, and not all of us have access to whatever group the info was posted on.
