The day is scheduled

There are a few posts that I am behind on, but I have had the hardest time sitting these days. Most of my time is spent laying down and trying to rest or in the bathtub just soaking the aches away.

Last Friday my doctor set a date for the induction of our little boy. I have been most distressed and feeling very guilty over it as I feel like I have done something wrong to warrant this.

Our little guy is "measuring" at 7lbs 8 oz as of last Tuesday and if he gains an ounce a day as they are supposed to do and makes it all the way to his due date, he would be something like 9lbs 4ozs.

On top of him being big, I have had some struggles this past week with regulating my diabetes during this and I feel guilty that I have subjected my little man to this.

Then the last item that bothers me and scares me most is that my fluids are high. Throughout the pregnancy the doctor has said that it is good, but now because of how much he is moving it is bad and he is wanting to see me 2-3 times a week to make sure that Turner doesn't get entangled in the cord. I have to lay down every 2 hours and make sure that I feel him. That has me so panicked as I had a friend loose her baby around this time in her pregnancy (for different reasons) so I am trying so hard to just pray and know that God has brought us this far and will carry us through.

My mom informs me that the guilt will not go away any time soon. She said it comes with being a mother. You always want the best for your kids and feel guilty that you are not providing it.

anyway...pray with us as we look toward OCT 27 with great anticipation and trepidation and excitement and hope and all the things that come with a new special blessing from God.
