Well, it's almost time for the big arrival of my son!!! I am due Aug 31st but am scheduled for an elective induction on Thursday, August 25th. I can't wait to see and meet my son and to be done with this pregnancy :)
This past Saturday, I got food poisoning. It was awful. I ended up going to the ER on Sunday for fluids. I was trying to stop my contractions and knew hydration was all that would do it. Every time I would try to hydrate myself, by drinking even a sip of liquid, I'd throw it up so off I went. They transfered me by ambulance to another hospital to get monitored by L&D. I was so scared I was going to deliver there and didn't want to because my doctor doesn't have privledges there. We were staying with my inlaws because we sold our house and our new house isn't ready yet. They ended up hydrating me really well and giving me a shot of that T medicine (can't think of the exact name right now) to stop the contractions. I was so thankful. I knew Joseph would probably be okay enough to be born being I was 37 1/2 weeks at that time, but I really wanted my own doctor there.
Monday, I came with my kids to a dear friend's house to stay. I was so greatful for the invitation because staying with my inlaws was....well really hard for me.
So I went to my regular doc appt. on Wed. and he agreed to the 25th for my induction. I am so glad and we will be in our house just in time. Living out of boxes but I don't care. As long as we have our OWN house and space and I have a place for my baby, I don't care about anything else!!!
Please keep us in your prayers. This has been such a tough time for us as a family. We have been shuffling around from place to place and it's just not something we are used to. And being very pregnant and this hot summer we have been having has just been hard. We just haven't know what one day or the next would bring and I was so afraid of being in someone else's house when Joseph was born. I know there are certainly worse things but if there is one time I want space and organization, it's when I give birth :)
