It's true. We've been officially postponed. I had my amniocentesis today (a truly lovely experience I wish on no one) and it turns out that while our little guy's lungs are very close to ready, they want to give him another few days to bake. Seriously! The only thing we could plan on with this little bundle of surprises was his arrival date and now he has managed to evade even that near certainty. Oh well! The last thing we want to do is hasten his arrival only to find we've put him in more trouble than he absolutely needs to endure at this point.

He is still looking big and strong. They estimated his weight at approximately 7 lbs 10 oz today and his noggin is measuring in at 41 weeks! At this point all we can do is wait it out through the weekend and check back in with the docs early next week.

We are already amazed at the outpouring of love and support from so many of you. Thank you for all your offers of help and meals and cleaning and on and on. All of which I'm sure we'll need soon -- just not as soon as we'd planned. We are truly blessed to have such amazing people in our life. Just as so many of you pray for us, we offer our prayers of gratitude for you in return. All I can say tonight is please stay tuned!

I'm SO sorry that you have to "mentally" regroup and survive pregnancy a little bit longer, & at the same time so grateful that he'll have that much longer to get stronger. You & your family have been in my thoughts and prayers constantly--and will continue to be.

When you just can't ask anyone else for yet another favor, I hope my name will pop up in your head and you will KNOW that I'll do anything you ask for, in a heartbeat!
