Wow, I am totally in shock! The doctor just came in and said the amnio results were back already! We were told it would be at least 12 hours, probably 24 hours!
Luke’s lungs are MATURE!!!! He is ready to come. And they are obviously mature, there are no questions – the doctor said that’s why they came back so quickly. She was even shocked.
I know this is from all the prayers at work – thank You, Jesus!
My c-section will be either tomorrow morning or Monday morning. They are pushing for tomorrow, but anesthesiology generally doesn’t like to do non-emergency c-sections on the weekend, so if my doctors can’t convince them otherwise, it will be Monday. Still I can wait that long – that’s no more than 48 hours away!
God is so good!
Also, the psych doctor came in for my ‘evaluation’ about an hour ago. She was an incredibly sweet, soft-spoken woman and she was wonderful. She asked me how I was doing and I explained how this whole pregnancy has been tough and told her about everything. By the time I reached this past week with my leg giving way and not being able to walk, she was nodding & very sympathetic. When we were done, she said she felt I was just fine mentally – I was understandably exhausted, but she had no mental concerns about me. She asked if they had me on anxiety meds (no) and if I wanted to go on them (no) and she said that was just fine and she was going to put her recommendation through that I didn’t need meds and was okay.
It went great. I am officially “cleared” and I have no more than 48 hours of being pregnant left. Wow.
I will probably stay here overnight because there’s a good chance I will have an early AM c-section. But if it’s not tomorrow, they will let me go home and then come back Monday if I want.
I am still a bit shocked, but I guess I shouldn’t be – God answered our prayers, right?! Thank You so much, Jesus! And thank you all my wonderful friends, family, and blog readers for lifting us up in prayers! Please continue to pray for us these next couple days as we meet our new little Luke! I will keep you updated.
