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!
That is all. So excited. LOVE YOU LOVE YOU LOVE YOU!
I will be thinking of you today, tomorrow, tonight, etc.
YIPPEE! BABY! YIPPEE! Can't wait to see the little bugger. Wishing you the best for an easy labour. Also? What about those 16 weeks off from work? Terribly exciting. Congrats!ReplyDelete
Yay yay yay I am so excited!! Thank you for sharing all of this with us who you don't 'really' know - but I know a helluva lot more about you than any pregnant woman I've ever known! I'll be sending positive thoughts out to you hoping everything goes well!ReplyDelete

Remember, you really only see your doc at the end, so I wish you great nurses! Sleep as much as you can manage!
Thrilled for you Lisa, wonderful news! I'd recommend eating a lot of things between now and 5 pm but ice-cream would be at the top of the list. I wish you the best tomorrow! Get lots of rest! Don't forget the camera for the cute newborn photos!ReplyDelete
Congratulations! Oh, I also read advice from a mom suggesting you take a long shower as late as possible since it might be your last chance for awhile, and people will be taking lots of pictures of you and your new baby! Best of luck - I know you will be an amazing mom!ReplyDelete
Yay!! So excited and happy for you! You'll be great parents and you just won't believe how you can love someone so much as you will that little boy (huge boy - depending how you look at it, LOL)!ReplyDelete

May you have a quick labor and a happy healthy boy!ReplyDelete
YAY! I hope it all goes well for you and him and everyone involved, and I can't wait for you to introduce us!ReplyDelete
Eat anything that makes you happy! :) You know... funnel cakes... ice cream... whatevs!ReplyDelete
Good luck! I'm sending positive energy to you, to the boy and to your whole family.
I hope Thor is going to be one of those cool babies who go to happy hours and gurgle and coo for hours at the intoxicated women surrounding him.ReplyDelete
Here's hoping the drugs are awesome and the labor brief. Love you!
Good luck! My fingers are crossed for you...ReplyDelete
Congratulations! I assume that you are asking for suggestions for food with staying power so you don't get hungry later? Eat a nice big dinner with lots of veggies, meat, and some fat (bacon maybe?) and that should stick with you for awhile! Stay away from the sugars and carbs, which will make you hungry again in a few hours. Good luck!ReplyDelete
Happy baby delivering! Am weirdly jealous? Two of the happiest days of my life were spent pushing out babies.ReplyDelete
(Those memory-altering hormones are obviously some good shit.)
YOU ARE HAVING A BABY! YAAAAAAY!!!!!
Congratulations! Good luck, good luck!ReplyDelete
WoooooooooHoooooooooo! Baby Boy is on his way!!!! Best wishes for a wonderful delivery!ReplyDelete
So happy for you, I am actually doing my version of the Happy Dance... which is to say that I just poured more Prosecco into my glass. Best wishes to all three of you and the rest of your family.ReplyDelete
Oh, HOORAY! We'll be thinking about you!!!ReplyDelete
I'm sending you lots of easy labor vibes, and hoping everything goes super smoothly! I can't wait to meet your little bub!ReplyDelete
YAY! CAn't wait to 'meet' him. And hear ALL the details!ReplyDelete
