In celebration of scheduling the date for my c-section today (well, last night since I pre-posted this)...here are some pics from my last one:
Sure hope they can find scrubs that fit this time around:)
Yes, my girl really was that gosh darn adorable just a few short hours after birth. And - check out all the dark hair she had..so funny that she's a little blondie now.
Alright, in all honesty I'm not really celebrating my delivery date...I'm a bit disappointed in how it turned out. I delivered Katie on a Friday and was hoping for another Friday delivery. It would have worked out perfectly with Katie's school schedule (she's would have been off), was better for Chris for work, and made it convenient for people to visit over the weekend. My practice doesn't schedule deliveries before 39 weeks gestation, but I had been told earlier on that since I was due on a Sat (the 15th), that it would be fine to deliver me on the Friday, the 7th. Well, found out last week, that having gestational diabetes upsets that whole plan because they are even more concerned about delivering too early because gestational diabetes increases the risk of underdeveloped lungs. So, I had my appt tonight with the other doctor on schedule for the 7th and she also told me she wouldn't do it then :(. So, I have to wait until Monday, November 10th. Good news, though, is that I'm not scheduled until 10:00am. With Katie, I was scheduled at 7:30am and had to be there at 6am...and I was SO sick from getting up SO darn early that I couldn't stop throwing up before delivery..and even on the operating table. Hopefully, I'll get to avoid all that this time.
But enough about me :)...head over to Twinfatuation to see who else is playing this week for Way Back When-esday!
