Updates...

First, let me say that if you remember praying for or reading about Nate, Tricia, and Gwyneth over the last few months, say another prayer for them... this is the family that had the micro-preemie back in January due to Tricia having Cystic Fibrosis. Tricia underwent a double lung transplant yesterday and is out of surgery but needs to stay infection free and her body needs to accept the new lungs. If you want to read more, their blog is over to the right under The Lawrenson Family. On a different note here, please also pray for the family that donated the organs and lost a loved one...

On our end, we ventured off to the doctors again today. I am up another pound, putting me at 14 pounds for this pregnancy. I have not seen Dr. B in about 4 months and she was cracking up laughing at my stomach. She said my belly is alllll baby and should "deflate" at delivery!!! Baby girl had a great heart beat today, around 135 and it was confirmed today that she is head down and ready to go! And, Nathan was correct last week when he told me that she was low, apparently she has already engaged (dropped) so all we are doing is waiting. We should not have to wait too much longer though... I finish week 38 on Monday and have been having contractions for the last two days. Nothing regular and no reason to believe they are the real labor contractions... they come and go at their own leisure! Either way, we are down to just two weeks or so till we meet this little person and we can't wait! This far, the Lord has blessed us with a with a full term healthy pregnancy and we pray that delivery will go just as smoothly when the time comes!!!! Thanks to all of you who have stood by us with unconditional support and love over the last few years on this journey to parenthood.
