So, I was thinking back to when Tess was born and pulled up a few pics - -
My Dear Friends came to meet Tess (in the hospital). Nice gown, huh?
Erin, Laurie and Jenny
We usually have home births and this was the plan with Tess but God had other plans for this one. As I was laboring at home, Raeanne noticed decels during the contractions. She wanted us to go to the hopital to get a non-stress test to check things out. So, she followed us to the hopital and on the way, the contractions were harder and quicker. After getting to the hospital, the decels continued and so we stayed there.
Sidenote: I was pregnant for most of the time that I took care of mom whom was battling ovarian cancer. Brian and I wanted her to "catch" our baby. The one that was with me (in utero) as I cared for my mother. She had just finished her last round of chemo (third) and was leaving the next week to have surgery (to have the tumors removed). She was weak but Dad was determined to get her there. He did!
And she did ~ caught our baby girl!
in honor of Enid Gay - my mother
I love you, Mom!
There were no problems with delivery. Healty baby girl! She was wearing the cord like a backpack which probably caused the decels during the contractions.

PS. My mom is doing great. That is a another story for another time. Let's just say, We serve and awesome God.
