baby Luke is coming!
I know it's been a while since I've updated on the pregnancy. Here's the quick version...a few weeks back my doctor found that my placenta previa was worsening again which meant that a c-section was probably inevitable. He sent me to see a high-risk doctor to get a second opinion and determine if we would need to take Luke early. Based on what this doctor told me, I figured I might be able to wait til 38 weeks or so, but he said it would be up to my doctor. Yesterday, my doctor called and said it was going to be 37 weeks! And that I was scheduled for this Monday at 5pm! I was a little overwhelmed that that was less than a week away, but now I'm actually really excited that he will be here so soon. And it can't be that bad to shave three weeks off my pregnancy in this heat! So, Luke will be making his grand entrance THIS Monday, August 11th! Tomorrow I'm going to my doctor for what I guess will be my last check-up. Please be praying that everything will go smoothly, and Luke will arrive safe and sound...and for the transition in general- for all of us. I know it will take some adjusting, but I'm looking forward to life as four!
