February Twenty-Fifth, Here We Come!
So yesterday my midwife scheduled my c-section for Wednesday, February 25th!!! I mean, even though I knew that's when it would be, it's still exciting to make it official. I'll be thirty nine weeks, one day on Feb 25th. That's only forty two days away! I know a lot of women will roll their eyes and say "she's lying" but I really love being pregnant, forty two days seems too short a period for me! Obviously I can't wait to meet my new son, but there's just nothing like carrying my child right here under my heart, feeling him stretch and hiccup, which he's doing right now...mmm. I just love it! Guess that's why this is my third kid in three years, right? My mama can't make it up for the delivery because my baby sister is due the week before, so Nick's sister Michelle is going to fly up the weekend before to stay with Ava and Scott so that Nick can stay with me in the hospital overnight. I know, I'm so spoiled, but I don't want to be in the hospital by myself! I just hope this little guy can hold out until Michelle gets here (neither Ava nor Scott felt the need to stay put past thirty eight weeks) otherwise our friends and neighbors might be getting a middle of the night call for help. Sorry in advance!!! Seriously though, Michelle, if you're reading this, you have no idea how grateful I am to know you're coming. I'm going to need all the help I can get, because I have a feeling that Scott is either going to be glued to my lap when I come home from the hospital and Warren will be stranded on his own, or Scott won't want to have anything to do with me because he'll think I betrayed him. Ava, on the other hand, thinks that this is her baby, and she's completely prepared to feed, change, dress, rock, and play with her littlest brother. Lord help our family!!!
