Getting Close Now!!!!!!

eMail from Momma Brook yesterday.....

Just wanted to send you a quick email with an update on Ava. I went to the doctor this morning as well as had some tests done. I had a NST (non-stress test) and an ultrasound. They checked to make sure that Ava's heartbeat was increasing with movement as well as looked to see if there was still enough amniotic fluid. Both of which the doctor said looked good. The visit was good, well except for the part when she said she thought Ava would be a good 8lbs, maybe 8lbs 10oz!!!! Jeez, I am glad that is a guess. That is one big baby. Anyway, I made some progress... cervix is midline, over 1cm dilated, -1 station and 80% effaced. I had my membranes stripped today as suggested by the midwife to help intensify the contractions I am currently having and hopefully start fun.
The plan is that we will go to the hospital around 5pm tomorrow for admission given nothing happens tonight. They will give me something to ripen the cervix more and then Saturday morning they will start Pitocin.

Thats the update, just wanted to keep you and Linda up to date. Can't wait for her to get here!!! Looks like she might be a chunky one!

The image below is from an eSession that I shot with Jerry McGaghey!
Jerry is an INCREDIBLE local photographer that I met through my blog
and I have had the great fortune of working with him on several events.
Last night I worked a wedding with him and it was quickly obvious why
he is one of the most sought after wedding photographers in the area!
He always knows exactly what to do and when to do it. His passion for
what he does shows through his phenomenal work! He managed to keep
me on track and get a bundle of forever memories for the happy couple!
Jerry's bride, Mandy was there and it was easy to see that she was a
veteran too - she knew when to be where, got great shots and kept
both of us on track! I look forward working with Jerry and Mandy a lot
more in the future! They are a talented couple!

Check out Jerry's blog!

William F. Moores, Jr 1935 - 2008

Go Rest High On the Mountain Bill!

My brother Bill left this world early this morning after
several years of suffering... His family was there to
wish him well as he went to his reward in heaven..

If you could see me now!

I'm walking Streets of gold!

If you could see me now!

I'm standing tall and whole!

If you could see me now!

You would know that the pain has been erased!

If you could see me now!

You would know that I have seen HIS FACE!!!!

If you could see me now!

You wouldn't ever want me to leave this place!
