OB Appointment #12

Today I had my final OB appointment before meeting Carleigh. Kyndra and I got there a little early but we had to wait a little bit because they forgot to tell Dr. F she had an earlier appointment. No big deal. I was off work today because Kyndra had a fever of 103 last night but she is feeling much better today. My BP was good at 88/58 and I am still at 120.5 lbs. My fundal height is still at 29 cm too. Carleigh's heart was pumping strong at 131 bpm.

Dr. F went over the ultrasound report and we talked about that for a few minutes and then I mentioned to her getting induced on Friday. So we talked about all the options with that and a few things about my birth plan. She called Mother Baby Care to make sure that there were slots open for me to get induced. So we are set to go in on Friday at 7:30 am. Wow! That's only a few days away and that's so hard to believe. I still haven't packed my hospital bag yet. I'll try and get that done sometime this week, perhaps today.

So, to all of those following our journey I will be posting updates as often as I can on Friday to keep everyone up to date on the progress.

We will be praying for Carleigh's safe delivery so that you may get to spend as much time with her as possible. Also that God would grant all of the doctors and nurses that will be involved in your case, wisdom.

You have been such an inspiration... to so many and your little girl such a blessing to all of us. Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your journey. I look forward to "meeting" Carleigh soon. Be sure to embrace each moment (and give her hugs and kisses from me!)... There will be a day when you look back on this time and smile. I allowed myself to feel the impact of my loss but my tears soon became tears of joy. May God continue to bless you and hold you close.

Much Love

There are so many people out there praying for you and Carleigh! Your story has been such an inspiration to me and a blessing to follow. I pray that all goes just as God intends it to, and that he gives you the courage and strength to accept his wishes, whatever they may be.

Holly & Anthony, I will keep you in prayer on Friday and I hope that this day can bring you a little joy. It will be amazing to finally meet your daughter and hold this precious miracle that God have given you both. I will also have your families be in prayer as well. I know that she will come into the world as perfect as God has made her. Bless you both and since I can not be there at this time I want you to know that you have my love and congratulations on the birth of Carleigh. The memories you make for this day will forever be with you all. My love is with you all. And I am here if you need me.
With Much Love ,
Aunt Nancy

Hi, I'm Selena. I was turned onto your site by another friend. I just wanted to let you know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I also wanted to give you a link to my aunts website. My cousin was given the same diagnosis. She wasn't supposed to leave the hospital but lived until she was 8!!! The road was neither short nor easy but some of the best times in our lives!!!! Please enjoy anytime you have with your little girl and know she is a miracle!

I just wanted to let you know that I am praying and thinking of you and your family! I pray that the few minutes, hours or days that you get to spend with your Baby will be a blessing to you! I can not imagine what you are going through.I have tears streming down my face as I type this! I am so sorry that this had to happen to you but like you said in one of your post, God gives special babies to special people. He will never out anything on us more that we can handle. I am so glad that you are a believer and you are putting this in God's hands! May God bless you today!:)
