Baby White Update

Steph overall has had a great pregnancy. We're coming up on week 37, so we're getting really close. The nursery is almost complete. We're doing some last minute painting and we still need to buy the drawers/changing table thing. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law have been a huge help in decorating the nursery. We do have the crib, bassinet and tons of baby things.

On the health front, Steph has developed pregnancy induced hypertension in the last few weeks, so her doctors have been closely monitoring her. In fact, yesterday she had an ultrasound to check on the growth and development of the baby, and it looks like it is growing completely normal and uneffected by the hypertension thus far. That was an immense relief, however the ultrasound did reveal that baby white is sideways instead of head down like it should be, increasing the chances of a c-section. I feel strongly that God has been protecting and healing Steph and the baby, because today Steph had another round of tests and her blood pressure was suddenly 116/80 which for the last few weeks it has been more like 140/90.

Thank You Lord!!

Steph would really like to deliver normally, but overall we are tickled that she and baby are doing well.

We appreciate any continued prayers, for a safe delivery for Steph and baby

Your Brother in Christ,
