23 Sep 2010 It’s all in God’s hands
 |  Category: family, health

We just had our 39 week check-up, and I still haven’t progressed from 2 weeks ago. Baby did drop to station 1 or 2, so that’s good, he doesn’t have too much further to go. We canceled the scheduled induction for Monday, and moved it to next Friday, the day my mom flies up, in hopes that I’ll go into labor on my own. My next appointment is on Wednesday, the due date. We’ll strip my membranes and that’ll hopefully get things going on their own instead of having to induce if Zeke isn’t here yet.

God is really teaching us a lot while we wait for Zeke’s arrival. One of those things having to do with Tim’s grandfather who isn’t doing well, and we’re just waiting for the time God welcomes him home. If he goes before Zeke is here then Tim will definitely stay in MN. If Zeke is born before Tim’s grandfather goes, then there may be a chance of Tim getting to go out for the funeral depending on timing and everything. Tim’s brothers are flying out to PA tomorrow to see him, it’s just not possible for Tim right now to go with them.

It’s a good thing God is in control of everything, ’cause we would totally screw it up, and that has been a huge discussion lately on trying to figure out if we try to rush getting Zeke here so his birth is out of the way so Tim can be free to go be with family when the time comes. We’d rather let things happen naturally, and that sets everything completely in God’s hands this next week waiting for life and death, and that’s how it should be.

Please pray for Tim and his family through this sad and exciting time. It’s been hard to be excited about getting to meet our son soon, and I really want to be able to concentrate on the excitement we should have about a new birth in our family. I’m looking forward to the end of this process, while trying to be open to what God is teaching us right now.
