a follow-up to yesterday’s “woe is me” post

If you missed yesterday’s emotional “woe is me” post, you can catch up here. But today I have really great news!

hearyeThe head nurse at the OB’s office called and explained that a “scheduled induction appointment” had opened up at the hospital because another patient went into labor last night. Good news for that mom: she delivered a healthy baby. Good news for us: my PREFERRED plan might work! While inducing labor was not something we anticipated, by December 19 I’ll be three days shy of 40 weeks, my parents will be in town, and my doctor will deliver Kamden.

If nothing rips, breaks, or tears,
Baby Kamden will be born Thursday, December 19.

Baby Kamden, please cooperate and “bake” another week. I know you’re feeling and eating well because you’re constantly moving and weigh EIGHT pounds! And, thanks to “Auntie Jamie,” you have an appropriate outfit to wear on Christmas!


Thanks for the sweet comments yesterday. God’s plan is better than mine anyway. My prayer now is to stay pregnant and make it to December 19!!!!

    Hang in there buddy! Auntie Celeste will be mid-semester exams beginning the 18th and my students (and boss) think I should be there. And, by the way… Take it easy on your mom. She’s a little nervous about the getting you here part! Smooches!

    Enjoy your last week of a family of 2… becoming a Mom and a family of 3 is the most amazing experience. What a wonderful Christmas present!

      Stephanie, thank you so much! We are definitely receiving the best kind of present this Christmas, we’re incredibly blessed. Plus, December babies are the BEST kind (but I’m kinda biased!!!!!).
