Bun #3

pregnancy calendar

Thursday, January 23, 2014


A colorful chain hangs on the playroom wall counting down the days until baby is due.  Kaylynn asks me multiple time a day if we can get the baby out now.  I'm hoping this will help her stop asking until we're closer.  So far it hasn't.

I met with a high risk pregnancy specialist at the hospital last Friday.  He gave me the green light for trying a vaginal birth.  Statistically I have a 50/50 chance of success.  We'll just have to see how it all goes down.  My plan is to stay flexible.  I can't help but imagine all the different senarios in my head when I'm falling asleep at night.

I will meet with a midwife every week from now on.  I had an appointment on Wednesday with Janelle and really liked her.  I'll be delivering with one of three midwives - whoever is on duty the day it happens.  I remembered to ask more questions this time and felt better about the whole thing when I left.

The countdown chain on the wall looks long.  So many days left and possibly more tagged on to the end if baby is comfy inside.  At the same time the chain looks short.  Just a matter of days and ready or not he or she will be here and I'll have a newborn again!

Oh my, quite a wild ride you are on. I'm so glad things are working out with the midwife. I just wish I could see you more often!!!!
