Its Beginning To Sink In


Yesterday Dr. S did a doppler to check the blood flow from the placenta to the baby, it has more resistance (I think that is the wording he used) which is what he had expected. Anyways they are going to be inducing me on the 21st, so thats seven days away... Wow seven. I sit here and realize that seven days isn't that far away. I am beginning to get a little nervous about how everything is going to go. Seven days I will be a mother, in seven days I will have a daughter, in seven days I will be changing diapers, seven days I will be feeding a beautiful little girl.... Wow, in only seven days.

I wonder if it's more scary/exciting because you know the exact day you will be induced...
just one week to go!

Best of luck to you and your daughter. I hope you were told that your induction may take a couple days. It is important that your cervix be "ripe" or easy to open before they start contractions with pitocin. So it may take a day or two to get it there with medication. Don't get discouraged about that!

I can hardly wait to hear how you and that wonderful daughter are doing. Have faith in yourself and your ability to give birth to a beautiful and healthy baby. Once again, I am amazed at you for your willingness to sacrifice for your daughter. You deserve to give yourself a big pat on the back. Good luck and God bless!
