Prayers for Cate

This fabulous picture is compliments of my wonderful hubby!!
This is it folks, it's FINALLY here, the week we welcome our new little girl to our family.  It's been QUITE the ride, and I don't remember a time that I've been this tired honestly.  As we count down our final days I ask that you PLEASE say a prayer for our sweet Cate.  Please pray for Lung Maturity as we head in for our Amnio on Thursday.  I have been in REAL active labor for over a week now, and although the contractions are slowly coming faster and harder, I am not progressing.  I already had a C-section planned for NEXT Friday (the 29th) but because of the labor, they have bumped me up to this week. 
We know that girls lungs mature faster than boys, but there is still a chance because of the Gestational Diabetes that she's not going to be ready.  IF she's not ready, then we wait another week...we don't want to put Cate in ANY danger, but I'm not sure my body can handle another week of this.
So please if you could keep Cate in your prayers this week, we would greatly appreciate it.  IF she's ready to go on Thursday, we'll be showing her off this weekend for sure!!
