BIG NEWS!!!!

Tomorrow is BIRTH DAY!!!!! I went to the doctor today and my blood pressure was 155/105, and that is while I am ON blood pressure medication. So the doctor was not impressed and said to head to the hospital early tomorrow morning. I am so excited.

The problem is that R and B are still driving. They will be driving all night long to get here tomorrow morning. Please pray for there safety.

As for me, I am SOOO excited. I'm excited to NOT be pregnant, I'm excited to lay in a bed and enjoy my family and relax (after epidural of course) and most of all, I am excited that R and B are going to be parents tomorrow. What more could I ask for?

Ill keep you updated as best I can.

I'm so excited for you, R & B. I pray that R & B will have a safe journey tonight and be at the hospital in time tomorrow.

I'm also praying for you, sweet friend. I pray you will get some rest tonight. And that the delivery will go well.

As I told you earlier, I'll be on pins and needles all day Tuesday waiting to hear an update.

Please take care of yourself.

Sending love and well wishes to you.

Ahhh!!! How did I miss this news?! Guess I wasn't on my computer last night as I usually am! Wow....so exciting! I feel bad for B and R having to drive ALL night, but I would do the same if I were in their shoes!

SO happy for you though that you don't have to go through another 24hours of feeling like junk! Of course post birth can't feel like a day at the beach, either!

Praise God that He has kept you and Baby Boy safe through this long pregnancy!! I am sending prayers right now your way as I am sure you are at the hospital already!!!

It is 8 am (central time) and I'm wondering how things are going for you--knowing that you must be in the hospital already. I hope and pray that your delivery goes well, and is primarily pain-free.

As an adoptive parent, I have so much respect and admiration for you. Your selfless decision to place your baby for adoption is heartwarming and courageous. You are blessing R & B in the most awesome and amazing way. You are helping them to grow their family, and are God's answer to their many prayers!

I'll be checking in on you through Twitter, your blog and R & B's blog--waiting to hear about the miracle of baby boy's birth!

Hugs to you!

I know you are already at the hospital. Please know you are in my prayers. And baby boy and R and B.

What a nice post! I developed high blood pressure AFTER the birth of my daughter and I'm still on medication...I'm glad to know there are medications you can take for BP while pregnant.

I have to tell you that I just spent 3 hours reading your entire journey! I am so proud of you for the decision you have made. Although I am sure it will be difficult to leave him with someone else... you are doing something amzing for R & B. Your strength and honesty through the last 9 months has been a testimony to who God is. HIS grace is sufficient. Period. He is always there and always loving. You will be in my prayers today for the quick delivery of your precious gift. I have always been impressed by your strength! Thank you for allowing us to share this journey with you.

You are one phenomenal woman. I have just seen the photo of the baby and all I can think about is how amazing you are. I am awed by you, your strength, your conviction, your faith. It's truly joyous to behold. I pray for the best of everything for you today, tomorrow and forever. You have earned every second.
God bless you.
