Rachel and I were surprised by a call on Wednesday night from our doctor. Rachel and not been measuring quite right during the duration of the pregnancy. Our doctor had us get an ultra sound on the 20th, 30, and 36th weeks of the pregnancy. We had just had our 36th week ultra sound and the doctors found that there was not a high volume of amniotic fluid and that Evelyn's abdomen was not developing at the same rate as the rest of the body. Our doctor called Wednesday and said they would have to get Evelyn out as soon as possible. Thursday morning at 7am Rachel was hospitalized and had inducement medicines given via IV. Well, only 60 hours after this Rachel went into labor. Evelyn Grace Borg was born at 3:18am, August 17 (97 years to the day of her great grandfather). She only weighed 4 pounds and 15 ounces, and was 18.5 inches long. She has deep blue eyes (like all babies), and a head full of blonde hair. She is healthy and doing very well. We are SO thankful for the Lord's gracious comfort and provision, as well as for the prayers of so many brothers and sisters in Christ. We are truly blessed and have both fallen head over heels in love with our baby girl.
