update(s): 6 days out

Thanks for taking time to pray for Beth when you read my post from earlier today (‘quick request: beth’s sick. pray‘).

. . . . . . .

Here is an update on how she is feeling, shot while en route to our regularly scheduled baby doctor appointment:

And now – what the doctor had to say about Beth and Abbey, taken post-visit:

Basically, like most first-time moms, we are in a holding pattern.

Abbey is ready to come shooting and flailing out of her mom, head down and in the proper position, but not quite yet.

It could be tomorrow.  It could be next Tuesday (Beth’s guess), or it could be next weekend.

It all just depends on when Beth’s uterus gets the urge to pop Abbey out like a soy bean squeezed out of an edamame pod.

Officially, Due Day is February 18th – we’ll see what happens.

. . . . . . .

In related news, our doctor told us that Beth’s lungs were clear and she probably just has an obnoxious winter cold virus.

Unfortunately, she said that it often takes pregnant women double the amount of time to get over a virus than it would for a non-pregnant woman – which stinks.

In other words, no flu – but your prayer is still much appreciated.

. . . . . . .

Stay tuned!

    Come Abbey, come! We look forward to hearing she is on her way! Beth, praying your body heals fast and Lee you don’t get the sickness.

    What an apt expression, albeit not very flattering to your wife or child, “a soy bean squeezed out of an edamame pod.” :) We’ll be praying for wellness!
