Much-Needed {Though Anticlimactic} Update

Wow. It's been ages since I posted on this thing! {Though to be fair, I have posted some on both my food blog and my craft blog.} Sorry for those of you who actually care to read it. Also, sorry that although I will be posting an update today... there will yet again be no pictures. Boring. Sorry.

The update is again an excerpt from my journal, though this time it's a much shorter excerpt. You're welcome. Here you go... written today, Friday the 12th:

"I can't even believe I'm writing today. The famous Feb. 12th. I had planned on being induced by now- or today itself. Unfortunately, my doctor had other ideas (dang rule-keeper!). So, we won't be being induced... until TOMORROW! Ahh! When Dr. Fxx told me "no" on Wednesday (I very truly was ready to be induced that day... my toenails were pedicured; I was wearing a nursing bra for goodness' sake, and I had even shaved my legs!), I cried. Lame. But still- no cave. He just handed me a tissue and talked a little softer to me. I know he wants what's best- for the baby if not for me, but DANG it's hard to wait. On the way home, I ran a few errands. It's good that I did, because the alone time helped me calm down a bit and see any sort of perspective. What's 2 1/2 days, really? And Derek would be able to do his test on Friday (today- good luck, babe) without worrying about retakes, etc. Also, Wednesday was a "red air day" (bad inversion/pollution), and who wants to suck in pollution in her first breath? Not my lil' one! And I knew we were due for some snow on Friday (got some yesterday, too) which usually clears the air a bit. So really, Saturday was perfect.

We'll see if it is.

I'm supposed to call the hospital at 6am tomorrow and see when they want me. It's possible they'll tell me to scoot on in at 7:30 or so. It's also possible they won't have room for me until late that night (ugh, please no). My fate- once again- is not in my hands. And let me tell you, I do love having no control. (Grr.) So we'll see. Less than 24 hours to go. Exciting... and scary."

Oh Becca, I so feel your pain right now. 2 days is nothing to anyone but a full term pregnant woman!
I hope all goes well tomorrow: That you sleep tonight, that you get to go in first thing, that your epidural rocks, and that there is very little pushing. I will be thinking about you, and that new niece of mine I can't wait to meet! Love you much!

Mindy said...

PS- I just posted on my food blog about an hour after I talked to you this morning. So you didn't miss anything. You are actually very prompt. :)

I was in the same spot with Aurora--"call in at 6 AM," they said. So we did. And then we waited about 3 hours before we could come in. But in that amount of time, we discovered the name Aurora, which we had never considered before. So perhaps good things will and have come to you in the time you have to wait for your little girl.
