Almost Time to Meet Her!

My sweet and wonderful sister-in-law, Grace, got word earlier this week that her doctor was recommending they induce her this weekend. Selah is due on the 16th, but Grace's blood pressure had been going up, and they didn't want to risk it going too high. Soooooooooo, that means I'm about to meet my neice!

She was scheduled to go in on Friday night, but apparently all the 9 month pregnant women in Lawrence went into labor on Thursday, so the hospital bumped her back 24 hours. So, last night, they were headed to the hospital at 7:30 p.m. to get cervix softening meds going, and a good night sleep (hopefully!). Doctor was planning to break her water sometime this morning.
So, of course, we had to get one last baby bump picture together! And what better time than RIGHT BEFORE Grace and Isaac get to meet their baby girl? They stopped by on their way to the hospital, we chatted for awhile, took a couple pictures, and prayed for them before they headed the 2 min drive away = )
34 weeks; 39 weeks

I am soooooooooo excited! The first baby girl grandbaby on my side of the family, and a little one to snuggle! Grace and Isaac have had a long journey to make it to this point in terms of childbearing, so this baby is much awaited! I got a text from my brother this morning that Grace had actually started having contractions in the middle of the night, so labor is already in progress! We'll be meeting little Selah within several hours, I'll bet!
