It's time...

This is Chris, Heidi's husband. I decided to make a post in honor of Heidi. Currently we find ourselves in a hospital room at St. Joes in Phoenix, AZ. Below are a series of events that lead us to where we are today.
Heidi goes to her doctor every Monday and Thursday to do a stress test and an ultrasound. This is done to make sure the baby's condition doesn't worsen or if there are any issues. So today at Heidi's doctor appointment our child failed her "stress test" and they noticed something irregular with the heart beat. This caused concern because of the diagnosed heart condition. Our doctor decided that we should go to the hospital to be monitored.

After we got here and got all settled in they hooked Heidi up to monitors to make sure the baby is okay. After about an hour and a half our doctor came in and explained they were going to induce labor. Since Heidi is almost 36 weeks pregnant the doctors determined it would be better for the baby to be out of her body than in. So to make a long story short, here we are.

Hopefully sooner rather than labor (get it?) we will welcome our little baby Jersey to our family. We are excited and nervous and we will welcome her with open arms.

Oh my gosh Heidi! First of all, congratulations! The minute I heard about you and your babe I offered a prayer. I hope so much that things go just perfect and that Jersey does great out of the womb. Second of all, you were not supposed to beat me! I only have 1 week and 4 days left and here I am, just as rotund as ever. I have been thinking about you a lot lately and I hope so much that everything goes the way it needs to and should go. Good luck my friend! By the way, it was awfully cute of Chris to post in your honor. I can't wait to hear about sweet little Jersey! Love you!
