We are fired up to introduce you to… Micah Timothy Paine. Born June 20, 2022 at 12:10 pm weighing 6 lbs. 14 oz. (our smallest newborn) and 19 1/2 inches extended.
Micah indicates “Who is like God?” The fertility clinic stated we weren’t even candidates for IVF, but God is not restricted by check final results or a doctor’s analysis.
(Kierstyn’s center name is Michaela which implies the same detail. We in no way imagined we’d have an additional organic little one after 10 decades of secondary infertility and currently being told it was not a likelihood. And now we have two. We preferred both of those of their names to be a testament to God’s faithfulness and that He writes the very best stories.)
We picked out his center title, Timothy, with the need that he would adhere to in the actions of Timothy in the Bible, “that from infancy you have acknowledged the sacred Scriptures, which are able to give you wisdom for salvation by means of faith in Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 3:15)
His birth was my simplest by far… I went in to be induced, was already dilated to 6 cm without the need of getting in labor, so my OB broke my drinking water, and then we only did a very low dose of Pitocin. Active difficult contractions did not get started till about 11:30 am and there was at the very least a moment break in amongst them. I almost certainly only experienced 7 or so really challenging contractions — each that truly constructed on one particular a different — in advance of I was entire. I pushed through 3 contractions and Micah have been born at 12:10 pm and he cried a hearty cry almost straight away.
It was a wonderful, non-medicated, quiet, particular experience — and it was the response to so lots of, numerous prayers throughout the full roller coaster being pregnant. Kaitlynn acquired to be at the start and the relaxation of the four siblings obtained to occur up pretty much promptly soon after he was born.
I look at Micah and my coronary heart feels so whole of gratitude. His pregnancy was by significantly my hardest, but he was each individual bit worth it all.
