A little Scare

Hi Everyone,

I guess it wouldn't be a "normal" day in the Paige household without drama! Yesterday, I went to the hospital for a routine stress test on Christian's heart and we didn't do so well. Apparently, Christian's heart rate showed some deccelaration which at this late stage is not a good sign. After 3.5 hours in the hospital and, yet, another ultrasound we were told to come back this morning and repeat the test.

We were told to also bring a packed bag and prepare to be induced today! You can imagine how scared and unprepared we were when the nurses told us that! I was panicked...there is still much to do here at home before our originally scheduled delivery date of August 22nd! The thought of being induced a full week early was certainly not anything Ryan and I ever considered! Even though our whole pregnancy has been one unplanned event after another!

I woke up this morning absolutely certain that our stress test result would be much better today! I prayed hard for God to give us a little more time to get ready for Christian's birthday.

On the way to the hospital, we stopped and grabbed breakfast of a strawberry banana smoothie, blueberry muffin, AND a cheese danish to make sure my little boy was bouncing off the walls for his stress test! And, sure enough, he did just that! Another reprieve!!

We are still on target to for next Friday! Woo Hoo!
