Go Time!!!!

31 weeks + 6 days, 15 weeks + 1 day post rupture, day 15 in the hospital.
(Note: I'm 32 weeks + 1 day according to my LMP).

Well folks, the moment we've all been waiting for is here. I had an ultrasound today and they felt that Acorn wasn't moving as much as he (or she) usually does and only got a 4 out of 8 on the biophysical profile. I knew something was up when my nurse came in an hour after the scan and said she wanted to get a NST done on me (a 20 minute heart rate listen). When she told me what the biophysical profile score was I knew...

It was go time.

Sure enough, the fellow came in and said they want to do the C-section in the next 24 hours. It wasn't an 'emergency' as they felt Acorn's heart rate was fine...but since it was a change for Acorn they decided not to try to push for more time.

As we speak they are organizing my transfer over to 'the case room' where Acorn will be born.

I'm nervous, but I'm not sure I would be any less nervous if we waited 2 more weeks. I'm afraid for the surgery but that wouldn't change either. I'm excited to meet my baby (pleasepleaseplease let my baby be okay) and I'm really excited to be off bed rest. I'm just trying to keep it together...hope, fear, nerves, excitement and all.

So if you pray, please do so. If you don't, please keep everything crossed for us as we prepare to meet (and hear!!!) a screaming Acorn!

  33. Dear Jesus, please cover Emily and her family with peace and give them calm hearts as they anticipate the arrival of Acorn. Put your healing hand on sweet Acorn and give him a little pinch so he cries realy loud for mommy and daddy. :) I ask You for these things because I know You can do them. Thank you, Jesus, Amen.

    Emily, I will continue to pray for you and your family through out these next several hours and the days to follow. I can't wait to "meet" Acorn! Love and prayers coming your way from Oregon! xoxoxo
