29 weeks

i find it rather amusing that this shirt makes me appear much smaller than i feel or look in other shirts!!! for instance, check out my last post with the black dress...the belly appears much larger. however, i did just take this picture 5 minutes ago, so i assure you that i am 29w 1d in this pic!

cayden got the hiccups for the first time on monday reminded me so much of braxton. he got them again on tuesday night at the same exact time (10:15 pm) we also picked up his heartbeat with a baby stethoscope on monday night as well. it was pure bliss....after i counted the beats to make sure they were correct....the stethoscope sounds so much different than the dr's doppler.

most importantly, i wanted to post to inform you all that we have a scheduled c-section! cayden matthew will be here on oct 5 @ 9am!!!! we are so excited and nervous, which brings me to my prayer request.

could you please pray for jesse and i's sanity during these next few months. we are both worried sick about the delivery. we are constantly being mentally reminded of the terrible experience we encountered last time and the devastating outcome. jesse has worried himself sick the last few days. we know that God has a great plan and we are trying so hard to trust in it. but, after all that has happened sometimes it is so difficult to put trust in the same circumstance again.

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." [Philippians 4:6, 7]

Destiny, Jesse and Cayden

Your belly is so cute and tiny- I feel like a blimp compared to you and we are due within days of each other!!!

Thinking of you as you approach the loss time in your pregnancy- that was very difficult for me as it brought up so many memories and flashbacks. Praying you through this time and sending lots of hugs.
