We're excited to introduce you to… Micah Timothy Paine. Born June 20, 2022 at 12:10 pm weighing 6 lbs. 14 oz. (our smallest child) and 19 1/2 inches lengthy.
Micah means “Who's like God?” The fertility clinic mentioned we weren’t even candidates for IVF, however God shouldn't be restricted by take a look at outcomes or a health care provider’s prognosis.
(Kierstyn’s center title is Michaela which implies the identical factor. We by no means thought we’d have one other organic baby after 10 years of secondary infertility and being advised it was not a chance. And now we now have two. We wished each of their names to be a testomony to God’s faithfulness and that He writes one of the best tales.)
We picked out his center title, Timothy, with the need that he would comply with within the steps of Timothy within the Bible, “that from infancy you've gotten recognized the sacred Scriptures, that are in a position to provide you with knowledge for salvation by religion in Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 3:15)
His beginning was my best by far… I went in to be induced, was already dilated to six cm with out being in labor, so my OB broke my water, after which we solely did a really low dose of Pitocin. Lively arduous contractions didn’t begin till round 11:30 am and there was not less than a minute break in between them. I in all probability solely had seven or so actually arduous contractions — every that basically constructed on each other — earlier than I used to be full. I pushed by three contractions and Micah had been born at 12:10 pm and he cried a hearty cry virtually instantly.
It was an attractive, non-medicated, quiet, particular expertise — and it was the reply to so many, many prayers all through your entire curler coaster being pregnant. Kaitlynn acquired to be on the beginning and the remainder of the 4 siblings acquired to return up virtually instantly after he was born.
I have a look at Micah and my coronary heart feels so stuffed with gratitude. His being pregnant was by far my hardest, however he was each bit value all of it.
