We got to the hospital around 3:30 this afternoon and got settled into our room. They gave me some medicine to get things going, and will start pitocin in the morning to help augment contractions.
They are monitoring my contractions and Thomas's heart rate, and everything looks good so far.
We got to meet the Neonatologist on call, and it was good to review the plan with her.
We are so excited to meet Thomas, but it is hard not to get anxious with all of this waiting. I know I would be nervous to be having a baby for the first time even if things weren't so "dramatic" (thank you Angie)!
I know that God is in control, and that he made Thomas for us and loves him more than we do. I know He knows the number of hairs on his head and how all of this is going to unfold. I'm trying to remind myself of these truths and of this promise:
4 I will be your God throughout your lifetime—
until your hair is white with age.
I made you, and I will care for you.
I will carry you along and save you.
Thanks to our friends and family for all of your words of encouragement and prayers.
We will keep you posted! Hopefully Thomas will arrive tomorrow!!!
