Count Down Has Begun

Our newest arrival will be here soon. Peace has finally set in for me. I was reminded last night how I am anticipating his arrival. I am comforted to know that I have never been alone on this journey. I am looking forward to holding our new family member. It has taking me a while to get to this point. I think I was afraid of hurting if things did not turn out the way that I want. I know that it is not my will but His will that things happen.

We still are unsure about a name but I am comforted to know that all work out. Soon. Very soon. Due date was Feburary 14th - Valentine's Day. Now we are counting down to Feburary 2nd. My first 2 deliveries were very fast after water broke - called precipitous labor. We lived only about 15 minutes from the hospital. Then we moved about 30-45 minutes away from the hospital that my OB works with. So with #3 and #4 deliveries, we schedule inductions with just breaking water at the hospital. Then contractions begin and go from a 4 to 8 in less than 1 hour.

I have been very nervous about this delivery because I want to make it to the hospital. I also don't want my water to break while teaching 5th graders (a fear since pregnant with Grace). OB said last week that he could be here before the 2nd; we will have to wait and see(not easy for a control freak).

So I pray that I will have comfort and be paient. I also pray that all goes well with the delivery and we will be inspired with a name.

Maybe next post will be welcoming a new little one into the Savage Family.
