Baby #2 will be here tomorrow

It's not the way I wanted it to happen, but the baby was diagnosed with intrauterine growth restriction and I'll be induced on Friday at 38 weeks and 5 days.  Either my husband or I will post after the birth.


  1. Prayers! My #2 was an unwanted induction. In the end it was perfect and I can see God's hand through all of it. We had a lot of concern living almost an hour from the hospital, and with my husband being in school right by the hospital- I had a very fast labor with #2 (at least for a first baby) and I really didn't want to have my mother in law driving me to the hospital :-)
    I had been praying, praying for a Saturday delivery and it was a Saturday morning when some concerns arose and we decided to induce that evening. I was able to give my first baby lots of hugs and give all those last minute instructions I'd been worried I wouldn't be able to give. The midwife broke my water and #2 was born 1 hr and 17 mns later- perfectly happy, healthy (and naturally!). I still wish I would have been able to avoid to go into labor on my own but God certainly had his hand right there and took care of all of us!
