UPDATE! Induction date!

I got a call from the hospital this morning! We're scheduled for a precautionary induction! We're supposed to go to Labor and Delivery on Wednesday morning @ 7:00am! This is, of course, if Christian hasn't already made an appearance by then! There's light at the end of the tunnel! He'd only be a week overdue at that point!

Please keep your prayers coming! I'd rather him just arrive then have to go through induction! Thanks!!!

No baby

We watched Christian's due date draw close, then pass :) He's now 2 days overdue. The days are going by slowly now as I anticipate his arrival!

This weekend, a BUNCH of my girlfriends are going on the Women's Retreat with church! I am SO bummed to not be going. I knew right away when it was scheduled that I was due to have a baby 3 days before the Retreat. I knew too that I wouldn't be taking a "less than 1 week old" on Retreat, numerous reasons including, Abby'd be jealous, me leaving for 3 days with the new baby! I also couldn't leave a newborn at home while I went :) Since Christian hasn't arrived, a big part of me feels like I could GO to retreat and he'll just wait till I get back! He's been the most mellow baby! I've truly been blessed to have had such a smooth pregnancy! Instead of driving out to Murrietta, I'll be sitting at home this weekend. I know it's the wise, responsible thing to do! I'll definitely go next year though! Christian will probably be 1 by then, and Abby, 2 1/2! Wow! Robby will have his hands full ;)

Hopefully, this will be my last post before baby ;) Time will tell!

No change

I went to the Dr. this morning and we're still at 3cm and 60%. His "official" due date is tomorrow. My Dr. suggested we schedule an induction on the calendar in case I don't deliver in the next week. She wanted the 10th but, there are SO many babies that are 'overdue', there's no induction dates available until the 17th!!! My nurse assured me that someone will deliver and a date will open up! I'm hoping we won't even have to go that route, that my water will break SOMETIME soon and I can have a nice natural delivery!!! :) We'll see what God and this baby have in store! :)

"Current Prayer Requests"

I decided to add a new section to my page to keep people updated on how they can be praying for the Millsap family! It's brief, but it's self explanatory I think!

There are a lot of big things happening at the Millsaps! This week, we should see the arrival of our baby boy! That's HUGE! Another big thing, Robby is working on signing contracts with companies so he can work full time from home, fully self employed! He's home this week waiting for baby with me :)

My Father, Don, is scheduled to have a valve replaced in his heart October 16th. My sister Rose is flying home this week to be with the family. Her husband Nathan is a soldier in the Army, currently stationed in Iraq.

My brother Phil is driving home from Michigan (where he's been attending Guitar making school for the last 6 months). He leaves October 26th.

Also, our Thrive marriage group is off to a great start! We're getting ready to start up our Men and Women's accountability groups!

I think that's it! Just wanted to get some of these thoughts/prayer requests down on a BLOG! There's SO much on my mind these days! Thanks everyone for your continued prayers for us!

He's back! :)

Thank you for all your prayers! Robby arrived home safely from Men's Retreat and Baby Christian has been very good all weekend! My next Dr's appointment is scheduled for Tuesday morning! Robby will be working from home till he arrives :)

I had a great time visiting with my Mom and sister! They were awesome! Abby and I loved having them around! They were a HUGE help too around the house!

This should be an exciting week for us! I reminded Robby before he left that, when we had our ultrasound, the tech thought our due date was closer to the 5th! My Dr. at the beginning had said the 3rd. I am so excited for his arrival! :)
