Jonah Paul is Here!
« on: November 04, 2015 at 07:02 PM »
Hi friends,

I'm so sleep deprived I can't remember if I posted my baby boy arrived at 38.2 weeks after 13 weeks of bedrest (10 being hospital bedrest)!!!

I was scheduled for an induction on Friday after having blood work come back abnormal (again) and blood pressure creeping up. Sunday, I started to have regular contractions (super painful ones) and was told to hurry up and get myself to the hospital. 4 hours later and one push and my baby boy entered the world! All thoughts about the frustrations and tears and scares I faced during pregnancy were but a distant memory as soon as he was in my arms safe and sound. He was a perfect 5lbs 10oz with chubby cheeks and perfectly round noggin. Praise to my Heavenly Father for His protection over this pregnancy!

Thanks to all you ladies for your support, encouragement and help throughout all of the struggles along the way! You were truly a Godsend and I'm so pleased to have met you!!!

Keep up the hard work- it soooooo worth it!
Holding on to God's Promises,

Shannon Faith

Hi Shannon!
I also haven't been on here since our baby was born and probably the week leading up to it. Congratulations! I'm so happy for you and know exactly how you're feeling. Sleep deprivation doesn't even come close to describing this feeling. But it's totally worth it huh?!?!  Congratulations again! You are a rockstar and a trooper. I'm so proud of both of us for our perseverance, keeping the faith, and for coming as far as we did. I'm sure your little one is healthy and happy. You did an amazing job!
 Enjoy these precious moments, because you earned them! Here's hoping you and your family are all very healthy and happy right now. Thanks for your friendship through this journey! It's amazing how a stranger somewhere in the world can make a difficult situation easier.
WE DID IT! Praise God!
