37 Weeks Goal Reached

“It was when I was happiest that I longed most… The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing… to find the place where all the beauty came from.”

~ C.S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces


We have reached and passed our goal of 37 weeks. Now we are well inside 9 months, baby Noah is essentially fully developed and simply gaining weight, and now we play the waiting game.

Due to health complications, the OB has scheduled an induction for the mark of 39 weeks… in just 10 days! However, due to the complications they may recommend that wife be induced even sooner. We are so very close! On top of that, wife has been having regular (albeit milder) contractions, and we are getting the feeling that Noah could arrive on his own any day now.

What a beautiful gift from God our dear Noah has been. I say this with all honesty that I absolutely cannot wait for him to be here. I will also say without hesitation that my wife has never been more beautiful than she is now. What a strange and remarkable thing it is to be reawakened by the miracle of life. These past couple weeks have been filled with some intense anxiety, but I have no doubt that this wait will be well worth it. I praise God for the bounty he has bestowed on our family.
