The baby is coming!!!!

The official due date is end of March. I just got off the phone with my Best Friend-In-Law (aka Best Friend's Husband). She being induced right now. It's early, but her blood pressure was continuing to rise and pushing her into preeclampsia (I don't know what that is, but I know it's bad. I'll go look it up when I'm done). They said it's safer to give birth now than wait any longer. I'm a mix of so excited and a little worried. So please, if you could, keep them in your thoughts.

**** Okay, I just looked up preeclampsia, and it's some scary stuff. Any healing thoughts and prayers (what ever is you thing) would be greatly appreciated.

Karen, I'll be praying that the baby arrives without complications. Exciting and scary all at once!

Karen - delivering her early is the best thing to do if she's preeclamptic...She and the baby should be just fine, but I'll be praying and think of her.......

Please let us know that all is well after the baby arrives!

Thoughts and Prayers are with them. I had two of my four a month early and they were fine - Can't wait to hear all about the little darling :)

Okay

Girls are a bit better at being earlier than boys. Usually if the mom is a bit stressed, the baby's lung mature earlier. A very good thing. Don't read anymore. You should be knitting for her.

You will be surprised, I'm sure at just how perfectly this delivery will be...knit for the baby, and I agree with the nurse...don't read any more!
Praying for her and her baby.

Heidi and baby are in my thoughts and prayers. Best wishes to both of them... I know it can be scary, but I have faith that in a day or so, we'll be hearing all about a strapping, healthy baby and a tired but thrilled mom!! Take care and hugs to you, Karen! :-)
