Tomorrow evening, July 26th, we are scheduled to check into our hospital and be induced. I'm anxious to meet my son already; to make sure that he is okay. It's only then will I finally relax and take that long awaited deep breath of relief.
In a way, I am very happy to know when and how everything will happen. No Hollywood movie scene here though a part of me was hoping for an August baby. Then again, the only reason for that was to make sure he would be full term. My prayer was half answered; he will be full term but just not in August. I'm okay with that. We are as ready as we will be. A few minor things to do and we are set to go.
And, before I forget, I want to express my deepest gratitude to my BNC. He has been a rock throughout this whole pregnancy. He went to just about every appointment and tried his hardest to make me comfortable and happy especially during these last few weeks when things became more and more difficult. I tried to include him in every decision because, after all, this is his son as well. I wouldn't have made it without his support. He pushed me and encouraged me when I thought I couldn't continue. I have no doubt in my mind that he will be a remarkable father to our son because he has been a remarkable husband to me. /sappiness
It has been a long and difficult journey but I'm confident that all the sacrifice and hard work will be worth it and I, for one, cannot wait to meet the end result.
