Welcome to our little space on the net! This blog is just about our family life, and began as a way to keep family and friends updated on what was going on with my pregnancy with our first son, Gage. We've since added Evie to our family, and I continue to blog about family life, car seats, spina bifida, and anything else that catches my attention.

Well, it looks like we won't be waiting 3 more weeks for Gage to arrive!

I went to both the specialist and my OB this morning. The ultrasound showed elevated fluid on Gage's brain. This is something that has been fairly normal and stable at every appointment since we started going to him at 18 weeks or so, so it was kind of a shock. I just had about 20 minutes between appointments, and in that time, the specialist called my OB and filled him in. They both agree that we need to get this baby here so that the hydrocephalus can be dealt with ASAP. I will go to the hospital Tuesday morning (thankfully not at the crack of dawn!) and they will start induction! I am so overwhelmed and so scared...scared about the induction and labor, but more scared for Gage and what's going to happen with him. Just keep praying for him and that he will be healthy!

As a side note, the doc estimated his weight to be 8lbs already! That could be totally off, but I thought it was interresting! Made me glad I'm not going to 40 weeks!

Mike, myself and the whole family have been and will continue to be in prayer for this precious gift from God. We pray that He will envelope all three of you and bless every moment of this wonderful new experience.
