update. (Sam's new c-section date)

We had our amnio this morning.
Unfortunately, Sam is not ready
so our c-section scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed.
That's all I really know right now.
I will post an update later today in this same post.


Sam is now "scheduled" to arrive in the early morning hours
on Aug 1st, via c-section.
As I mentioned earlier this morning
the amnio results concluded that Sam's lungs are not yet mature.
We expect that by August 1st (39 weeks 3 days)
Sam should be ready to make his appearance.
If he decides to come on his own before that day,
we will have a c-section done at that time.

I used to say I love planning.
I have to admit, I think I am done trying to plan anything in regards to this pregnancy.
How quickly I forget just who is calling the shots...

Tim and I so appreciate all the prayer and support!
Please keep it coming.
I am exhausted and so very done being pregnant,
but not so tired that I have any desire to risk little Sam's health!
So we will continue the course that has been laid before us,
we will wait
as (un)patiently as possible :)
for our precious rainbow baby.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-15
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:

a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

What do workers gain from their toil? I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God. I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it.
God does it so that people will fear him.

Whatever is has already been,
and what will be has been before;
and God will call the past to account.

Oh, Melissa - How hard that must be to wait after thinking for quite awhile that tomorrow would be the day. But Sam's health is most important!! HUGS!! I know how hard the waiting is. We are scheduled for August 15th - at 39 weeks - and I am suddenly very anxious for that day to get here. Can't hardly stand the waiting - and the thoughts that creep in - that won't be satisfied until our little one is safe in our arms.

Maybe you'll get that 'down time' you were hoping for before he comes now... God's timing is always perfect. I'll be praying for your energy to get through the last weeks of pregnancy - it's a lot of work!

His health is most important and God is in control! His timing is perfect as hard as it can be to just wait. I pray for God to be with you as you wait just a little while longer for Him to prepare a healthy little boy for you to love and hold! Read Philippians 4:6 over and over again! :) praying for you!

I ALWAYS look for your update on Wedndesdays and somehow this week I missed it. I checked FB for any word of Sam's arrival yesterday and then this morning saw this post. I'm sorry he was not ready to come yet. Just keep enjoying those kicks and rolls and know that August 1st is just around the corner. I've been thinking about you and praying. Love ya friend!
