|On June 28th, 2:35pm, Isaiah Paul Meyer was born! He weighed 7 pounds and measured 20.5 inches long. He is very healthy! The timing took us by surprise though. We were originally thinking that he was going to be born on July 7th when Mary Beth would be at 39 weeks pregnant. She had Tybee Joy through c-section, so we knew that Isaiah would be born through a c-section as well. Our plan was to have him in Puebla, Mexico a week before his due date. We were actually going to make the drive to Puebla on the 28th. (It’s 3 hours from where we live.) The plan was to be there, close to the hospital for about a week beforehand.
But plans don’t always turn out like we want them to.
At about 3:30am Mary Beth started feeling sharp pains in her lower abdomen. That same morning we drove the 3 hours to the doctors office. Her doctor was examining her, and upon touching her scar of her previous incision, Mary Beth cried out in pain. That incision was in danger of bursting open he said, and that could be fatal to both her life and the life of the baby. So he said it was time for an emergency c-section. This change of plan threw us off, but everything turned out okay! The whole process went smooth and without complication. Now a week later, after having checkups, both Mary Beth and Isaiah were declared very healthy! Thank you Jesus! And thank you all for your prayers!
