Saying that...I have enjoyed all his little kicks and rolls and bumps more and actually preparing for his birth. At first I was so scared and still am about the unknown, but I can't wait to meet him! I had a few issues yesterday and my Grady maternal fetal medicine doctor (fancy for high risk OB) wanted me to go into Erlanger to be monitored just to be on the safe side and found out I'm at 3 cm now and was having sporadic contractions and pains and severe nausea. After I got there and settled for a few hours they slowed down, gave me phenegren, and I got the all clear to go home with orders to stay off my feet as much as possible. So we're all telling Mister Andrew to stay put for one more week for mommy and daddy! lol
Something else I'm completely ecstatic about (given the circumstances) is daddy isn't being short notice deployed this pregnancy a week before I deliver like my third pregnancy, or deployed already like he was my second pregnancy, yay!! I forgot how nervous he gets come close to time for baby. Poor thing jumps in the middle of the night and asks if I'm okay every time I sit up or get up to take a potty break haha! We wont talk about how he drove like mad to the hospital when I went into labor with Maddie and the back hatch on our old jeep flew open going down the road...hahahaha Gotta love him though! ;) Im just ready to get this new chapter in our lives started and glad he's able to share this one with me. It was pretty hard the last two deliveries (although I had some awesome ladies step up and be there by my side throughout delivery when Shaun couldn't be there) when all you want is your spouse because that's your go-to comforter and safe place. I have him now and I can't be more thankful for that.
As for the date....still waiting to hear back from my doctor...but She emailed me and said the 20th yesterday evening. So I will go in that Sunday night and get everything started for my induction and have him hopefully by morning or early afternoon Monday. Sibley argued with her about me coming in at 38 weeks, but she really didn't give them a choice. Andrew's doing well and everything is developed at this point and she is mainly going off my last three deliveries, my frame and build (since I'm petite), and not to mention the progress he's already made trying to get here lol So that's it for now. We are getting everything ready on our end for the long hospital stay and delivery and getting the van ready for the trip. I will let everyone know if anything changes. Keep our little heart warrior in your prayers as his fight is really fixing to begin. I know he is in good hands, but any momma would be nervous
