So here we are, baby Baier’s birthday! My entire pregnancy I have basically been a ball of nerves. Eight years ago, my first pregnancy was complicated by preeclampsia and finally resulted in a preterm emergency cesarean. However irrational, I was certain that I was going to be destined to relive certain aspects of my first pregnancy. We kept in close communication with our awesome OBGYN and I stayed fit with daily walks and Zumba. Despite all my healthy choices and many reassurances, my first experience was always in the back of my mind. But praise the Lord, we made it to our scheduled D-day! Our hospital does not perform VBAC’s, therefore Baby Baier will be delivered six days before our actual due date via scheduled c-section. Our bags are packed, Emry couldn’t bear the spend the night away from us last night so she got the same 4:30 am wakeup call as Jeff and I, and we will drop her off at my parents house before we drive to the hospital. We completed pre-op at the hospital yesterday and we are scheduled to arrive in the delivery unit at 6:00 am this morning. I cannot believe I was even able to fall asleep last night, thank you Jesus for calming my nerves and allowing me a few precious hours of sleep before we embark on a new journey as You entrust a new precious baby to our care.
