It’s a Date!
We are still cooking away, here in hospital land, folks. This is a good thing as we are only 34 weeks and 3 days. The down side is that there has been so much uncertainty that it been hard to get comfortable in any situation.
Today, my OB came in to say that if nothing else changes before 37 weeks, making us go into action earlier, we will induce on the 9th.
While three weeks seems like an incredibly long time for me to be in bed away from home, for my husband to man the fort alone and for our little guy to be away from his mommy, we at least have an end in sight to this madness.
I know that even at 37 weeks, he’ll still be tiny but, as I’ve said before, I’ll wait it out, bored, for a little while longer if it means I get to take my baby home when we leave rather than having him stay here.
Of course, that wasn’t the only fun thing that happened today. I got approved for two, half hour wheelchair rides, twice a day! I know, right? So much fun. I also got my room moved to the other side of the hall so I’m looking out at the city skyline instead of looking at the semi-fortress like walls of the main hospital. I also get more sun this way. Wheee! And last but not least, I got to go to the weekly mom-to-mom group, on my floor, today, and it was nice to just check in to see where everyone is on her journey. Turns out I’m not the only one who feels like she has a total unhinged, lack of control in this situation. Big sigh of semi-releif.
So there you have it. Hopefully the next update I’ll be giving everyone is three weeks down the road when we have our healthy “term” kiddo in our arms.
Thanks for your support and love as always!
