I am off the waiting list!
Tonight! Tonight I go in to the hospital and they do the Cervidil business and tomorrow they induce and then!
THEN WE HAVE A BABY!!!
Thank you so incredibly much for all your support through this entire up and downy process. It sounds cheesy, since we don't actually know each other in person, but it means a lot to me.
I can't tell you how much better it made me feel yesterday to have two things: one, all the fantastic reassurance from women who have given birth. And two, all the amazing, defensive, I'll-kick-the-ass-of-anyone-who-tries-to-hurt-you vitriol on my behalf.
Both made me feel somehow protected and so very cared about.
Details: I can't eat past five, and I'm trying to figure out best strategy for food that will carry me through.
While also frantically doing laundry and calling friends and such. And maybe trying to put together a playlist.
And maybe also just generally jumping up and down in excitement! Tomorrow!
Tomorrow I finally finally finally get to hold my kid!
And now it occurs to me maybe the whole thing has been that the little guy is more like me than like his dad? And he's all, "Getting anything done in advance? Is so whatever."
Hugs to all of you and can't wait to introduce you!
