The question is, how many casseroles, banana breads, and other things can I make and fit in the freezer before next Wednesday? It looks like I might be scheduling a c-section for Wednesday…!!!??? How do I feel? Weird, nervous, scared, happy, and more. The doctor said he wouldn’t care whether I wanted to wait for labor or schedule…except that he will be out of town for several days starting next Thursday. Her lungs and all her systems are as ready now as they will be. Her due date is next Thursday. The possibility of her turning vertex is very slim. I could schedule a section for Wednesday and then I may go into labor before that. But I would like for this dr. to perform the surgery if I’m going to have to have it. I asked the dr. all kinds of questions today because I am nervous. The main things I’m nervous about is 1) feeling myself go numb from the spinal, and 2) not being able to breathe while I’m on the operating table. Zach and I still have to make a decision for exactly how we want to do this.
I’m watching the price is right. It is great fun!
Oh, the nurse came in and said, “Here’s your flu shot” Didn’t even ask me if I wanted one before she stuck my arm. Kinda weird.
Here are some pictures from the surprise phone shower from my college girlfriends:
Here’s a few pictures from another surprise. Aunt Judy (Zach’s aunt) and cousin Rochelle sent a box full of wrapped presents. What a fun thing to open! The outfits are really cute and unlike any other baby clothes I’ve gotten so far. This kid is going to be so well dressed!
Please pray that we know what to do and that I don’t spend the next week being a nervous wreck. In scheduling a birth, it is easy to think we should have everything ready and planned and perfect for her arrival. But, I have to remember I don’t have to. What should Zach and I do this weekend?
