Delivery Eve

Well, it looks like it's time to bring this babe into our family!

I am not making much progress on my own (and apparently my uterus isn't what it once was), so I have a c-section scheduled for tomorrow morning at 7am.

I'm a little nervous.

Alright I guess that depends on when you ask, cause this morning when I was wide awake at 4am I was really nervous.

Yep, I've already had 2 c-sections before.

And yep, for some reason I'm being a much bigger wimp this time around.

But he's more than worth it and the fact that we will be holding our little boy this time tomorrow makes me want to run outside and do cartwheels in the front yard at almost 40 weeks pregnant!

(we really like our neighbors though, so I won't make a scene like that.)

Eric has been making me laugh because he all the sudden has this "it still could be a girl" feeling in the back of his mind.

Which would be fine. But I saw the ultrasound :).

I'm trying to get last minute things done today - like laundry, the store, and packing our hospital bag. I would like the house to be perfect when we leave tomorrow...but I'm not holding to tightly to that!

We have to be at the hospital at 5am, which means we will need to get up at 3am - I'm hoping that we get some sleep...but I'm sure we can rest a bit after the delivery...or maybe I'll just stare at his sweet little newborn face instead :).

I will be updating twitter when I can (on my sidebar)...probably not a lot, but most likely to at least say "He's here! Pictures and details coming asap...".

Sooo, that's about it. I would love for you to pray for a safe and healthy delivery, and that my recovery would go smoothly and quickly :)!

I'll be posting soon! Happy Monday, friends!

I'm thrilled for you, friend, and will definitely be praying for you!

(Also, tell Eric I totally get where he's coming from. The VERY FIRST thing I asked once I'd pushed Quinn out was, "Is it a girl?! Is it a girl?!")

OH YAY! I'm so excited! And there is absolutely NO WAY I would be able to sleep tonight :)

I'll keep you in my prayers tomorrow morning and can't wait to see pictures and find out his name!

Hooray! I'll be praying for you and baby that all goes well!

Can't wait to see what you name him and what his stats are. ;-)

Nikki said...

Ugh! Those way-too-early morning times. But when you can't sleep anyway, what does it really matter? How about if I pray that you spontaneously go into labor this afternoon so you don't need the c-section?

Jen said...

So excited for you! Try not to worry--my third section was the easiest to recover from--it is just more scary before because you know what is coming. I pray all goes smoothly!
