Our due date of Monday, August 7 has now come and gone and this mother-to-be is getting very anxious. Actually, I’m just uncomfortable and simply ready to finally hold this little girl in my arms. An even better sight for me will be to see Gene holding his baby daughter. Because of everything we’ve been through in the last two years, when the moment finally arrives, we’ll likely be beside ourselves with emotion. Heck, I’m crying as I write this. Hormones… All the heartbreak of last year has been right at the surface for me as I prepare for this baby’s birth. Baby Noah Michael is never far from our thoughts.
The word from our medical team is that sometime next week I’ll be induced. I don’t have the exact date yet and am hoping she’ll arrive on her own timing over the weekend. I’d love to avoid all the medical intervention, as it does frighten me a bit. Either way, we’ll have a baby by the end of next week, August 18. E-mail me your new lottery date, time, weight, and length guess. You can even throw in a first and middle name idea if you’d like.
Cheers to a smooth and speedy delivery!
