It's a Good Day for a Birthday...or Three

I just finished up at the doctor's office and he decided it's time for us to finally meet these babies. This morning's ultrasound showed that Baby A is starting to lag behind a bit in growth, which is not cause for big concern. But, at 36 weeks and 3 days, there's no point in waiting any longer either.

We'll be heading to the hospital about 12:30 this afternoon and the delivery is scheduled for 3 p.m. Please pray that all goes well with the delivery, that the anesthetic is effective this time, and that the babies are all strong and healthy.

We've got someone on standby to post the delivery news on the blog, so we'll try to get the word out as soon as we can.

Thanks to all of you for following our adventure so far and for keeping us in your prayers. We appreciate each and every of you.

After your comment the other day about the anesthetic, I hope their plans WORK for you this afternoon and that the deliveries (!!!) happen without a hitch! Fantastic that you've had such a healthy pregnancy -- now the world turns upside down! :)

Btw, I already had plans to head to the post office with something for you this afternoon!

Quote for the day:
"It's a happy, happy day! . . . It's always a happy day when babies come." Mammy (Hattie McDaniel) in Gone With the Wind (1939, MGM)

And when the babies come three at a time, the happiness is immeasurable.

Love and prayers are being sent your way!

Oops! Before I get tweaked by the movie buffs among us--
It was actually Melanie Wilkes who said the last part of the quote (she was talking to Mammy), and I got the adjective wrong.

She actually said, "The happiest days are when babies come."
