It is Official...6 more days

Yes, next Thursday is the day. I will be having Gavin via C Section at noon 6 days from today and I can not wait. Please lift me up in prayer if you think about it ~ I am a little nervous. I visited my Dr. yesterday and my cervix is still hard as a rock, no dilation and nothing has changed. He quickly informed me that he did not suspect that anything would change and he planned to see me in the operating room next week on Thursday. This is the same way it worked out with the "Itty Bitty" which required me to have a C Section last time too. I must admit, I asked him if we could go ahead and take care of it right then and there. I am so ready and so BIG! Things still look really good and Gavin's heartbeat is strong and healthy.

I could not help but look back at some pictures of my sweet baby girl on the day she was born when our lives changed forever....oh it seems like so long ago, but it really wasn't. I can not wait to see Baby Gavin for the first time.

Here is a picture of Emma the very 1st time we laid our eyes on her, it was amazing how we fell in love with her instantly. Oh, the days can not come quick enough till my Dr. holds my little guy up for the first time and I lay eyes on him too.

I had a little scare this morning and did not feel Gavin moving like his usual little rowdy self. Thank goodness, I have a connection through a teacher at my school that volunteers at the Pregnancy Crisis Center and we ran over and got to have a quick little ultrasound. Uh, no wonder the poor little guy was not moving ~ there is NO room left in there. I am not kidding his arms are so close and tight to his little body and up under his chin. Poor thing...he is ready to come out and meet his Mommy. I am thinking he is going to be a really BIG BOY and so is the Dr.

From the looks of today's ultrasound, he looked alot like Emma to me. Big round face, very little hair and really big cheeks. The truth is...I don't care what he looks like, I just want him to be healthy and be here.

Please keep us in your prayers over the next week as we grow from 3 to the Frazier Four!

You are definitely in my prayers! I added your scheduled C-section date to my Palm calendar as soon as I knew when it was and I am constantly being reminded of it when looking through my calendar. I have the "alarm" set in my calendar for that morning to remember to pray for my sweet friend! I cannot wait to meet Gavin, also! So exciting!

You take care of yourself and try to get as much rest as you can these next few days. Wish I lived close to you so I could help you out.

Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers!

Love you, dear one,

Thinking and praying for you. Get your rest mommy, you're going to need it. I'm so excited and can't wait to meet sweet Gavin. Can't wait to see pictures. Take care and enjoy these last days of a mother of one. Your life is about to change for THE SO MUCH BETTER. Something about seeing that older sibling with the younger one melts your heart and makes you love them both even that much more.

Praying for you friend!
