Thank you Jesus!

First off, here are Paul's and my *new* cell phones!  They came at the perfect time.  This day seemed to fly by thanks to trying to figure out how these things work without my husband's help.  I think I have the basics down.. like how to get on facebook. :)  It took me forever to figure out how to call people, but I think I figured it out..  It'll take me a few days to know the ins and outs of this new phone.  I'm so thankful!

The cameras on these puppies are super good too!  Now I can whip my phone out and take pictures without shame because these won't be fuzzy and dark- since these little guys have a flash.  Woo!

And get this- just today my other phone was freezing up and I couldn't text anyone.  Isn't God good? :)  His timing is perfect!

Speaking of timing..

Last night was Paul's first youth night and he did a wonderful job!  His devotional was exactly what I needed.. exactly what I needed!

"Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."  Matthew 6:34

Ever since I have been put on bed rest I have worried night and day that this baby will be born without my mom here.  The thought kills me!  Paul's devotional and the scriptures he used were exactly what I needed to comfort my thoughts.

I had no idea I would be needing that devotional in the next hour.

By 8:00 I couldn't even think straight because of contractions.  I had had some earlier in the day, but they were nothing like what I was feeling then.  I didn't say anything at first.  I tried to not think about them and then maybe they'd go away.

Not the case.

By 10:00 Paul and his parents took me to the hospital because they were getting stronger and more consistent.  When they hooked me up to the monitor it showed that I was having good contractions every minute and they would last 30-50 seconds.

My mother-in-law kept tabs with my mom and we all thought for sure baby Zoe was coming whether I was ready or not!  I tried not to think about anything.. just keep my mind clear and whatever would happen was in the Lord's will.

The nurse checked me a couple times, I stayed dilated to 2, my cervix hadn't softened, and by 2:00 a.m. the contractions were farther apart and not nearly as strong.  More like uterine irritabilities.


So, as of right now, we're still planning on my mom being here for the birth of her first grandbaby. :)  As long as Zoe follows the rules!!
