Aubrielle Grace"s Birth Story

It's was a busy weekend for us at the Moorman home. and it a began at 6:00 am on Friday!
I was awake a big part of the night just feeling yucky and not 100% . not sure of what our day would be like when 6:30am rolled around I got up thinking that I had a few things that I wanted to do before the family got up.
Well with achy hips( This pregnancy they have been terrible.) I crawled out of bed. and went right to the bathroom all to find bloody show. I was excited but thought to myself, "I'm not having contractions? I'll just go do what I needed to get don't and maybe they will start!"
With dish water drown, I had picked up just a few things and went back to the dishes and was just beginning when felt a trickle, so back to the bathroom I went again to find LOTS of blood. again I thought to my self "Oh the contractions will start, Right?" . I thought I'd wait till the contractions started to call the Dr. to let her know. But this just seemed not normal so... I called the Dr. on call and she informed me that we needed to get to the hospital right away !I'm so thankfully the Lord gives us promptings to do things that seem un~normal to us So I left my dishes and went to wake up Jon and the kiddo's. within 30 Min we were at the Hospital!! We are so thankful for great friends that were willing to help us with the kiddo's last min. when our planned sitter was busy!

When we arrived we went right to OB and The Dr. was waiting on us. I thought it was a bit strange. but soon I would find out why, and would be very grateful!
She went right away to checking on Baby Girl and what was going on. We had a 4th ultra sound and she seemed ok at that point. but when we got back up to OB the Dr. said that we had a decision to make. and she began to tell us that I might be having a "placenta abruption" and that we were going to be induced right away or that we needed to go to C-section now!
 Wow!!! This what not what I had planned for our Friday, or for our Sweet Baby Girls birth. But again I'm so thankful that the Lord knows what's best for us!
Jon and I talked through the risks and really felt at pace with going to C-section. I was nervous!!!
I had always planned to have a natural birth so I never really even looked into the going on's of a C-section and what happens.  So she gave us the rundown and we got things started.
Within a few min my IV's were in and everything that needed to be signed was and we were whisked off to the OR. Daddy suited up in Blue Scrubs and all.
39 weeks and 6 days prego! 

 The Lord saw fit that Both of the attending Dr.'s we friends of ours and were BOTH believers. before we began the Lead Dr. opened in prayer in the OR and within just a few min. that beautiful sound
 "Baby's First Cry" that all Mama's Long to hear was heard!!!!
Tears of Joy and relief for us and the Sweet peace of the Lord washed over me knowing that our Precious Baby Girl was here Save and Sound!!! knowing that the outcome could of been different if we would of waited. The Lord is faithful.
"Aubrielle Grace Moorman" was born into this world 8~15~14 at 11:32 am and was 7 lbs 8oz.
19 inches long!
We got a quick peek and a few quick pix and they whisked her away to the nursery to check her out!!!

 The next hour or so Daddy was with her and Mama was sound asleep as they finished everything up. and got her cleaned up! the afternoon was a blur for recovery was long for me.
So Daddy went to work keeping up with pix. so that I didn't miss a thing while I was recovering and trying to wake up!

 Here's just a few of my fav's that He got for me!

 By mid afternoon I was... well awake enough to have some sweet skin to skin time and Nurse our sweet baby Girl! But that was about it. Daddy made all the Calls and emails and things and I rested.
My parents came in from IN. to Help with the kids and spent a few min. with us that evening. I was relived to know that they were here to help and enjoy the kids!

Well that's the beginning of what I never dreamed that I would go through, but so thankful that just as Ps. 29:9 says "The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth", He knew that just one day before her "Due Date" the 15th would be Aubrielle"s Birth~day!!!

Welcome to the World Baby Girl and Our Prayer and hearts desire is that the Lord would draw you to Himself at an early age and that you would walk with Him all that days of your life. serving Him the Lady the Lord would have you to be, and have a willing heart to go and do and be what He would want of you!!!!
Here's just some more pix of our Exciting weekend!

 I love Quinn's face in this one! :)

And Baby Aubrielle makes 7!!!

 Her First Cloth Diaper and BIG BOW!

Thank you to all of you who prayed for us as the email went out about the possible C-section and for helping out with our Little Treasures!!! The Lord is Good to us.

Praise the Lord! Congrats on the birth of your sweet girl. I also had a placental abruption and 4 c-sections. Not fun. All worth it though for our precious boys. Hope you have a speedy recovery.
