Yes, I said 13 days to go and no, I didn’t miscount.  I got a call from the doctor’s office this morning informing me that they have scheduled my induction date.  The woman on the other end said, that she was just calling to inform me that they have scheduled my induction for the 21st and that I should arrive at the hospital the evening prior at 8:00 p.m. to begin the induction process.  I giggled and told her I’m already AT the hospital.  Without skipping a beat, she responded that she should have paid closer attention and that the doctors will fill me in on the formalities later today.  Just before I hung up the phone I realized that she said the 21st and not the 22nd.  Assuming she was looking at some sort of formal paper that I was not, I said…wait, you said the 21st, not the 22nd?!  She confirmed that I heard correctly and I hung up the phone.  If the nurse weren’t in here when I took the call I may have celebrated by jumping on my bed!  Okay, maybe I wouldn’t have jumped on my bed but you get the idea.  I was excited. 

It seems that the fellow who came in yesterday didn’t have all of his information in front of him when he gave me the induction date of the 22nd yesterday.  Whatever.  I’m THRILLED.  That means, 12 days until they start the induction process and 15 – 18 days until I get to go HOME!  Home.  To our house.  Where we live.  The place we own and pay a mortgage on but has hardly been visited for the last (almost) 3 months.

I think the whole going home process will be both thrilling and mortifying.  I’m not even sure what to expect.   So much has changed.  For starters, we will have a baby and it will be our job to take care of him.  I know Kayvan will baby me for at least the first few weeks.  I’m sure he will tell me to stay in bed or on the couch.  Knowing myself well, I’ll insist that I know my limits and I feel fine and he will wrinkle his nose at me in frustration.  We also have a few new items at home that I can’t wait to see…like the nursery and our new fridge.  I  can’t wait for our pets to come home for good.  I’m not at all worried about Sookie adjusting to baby life but worry slightly about the cat.  He isn’t a big fan of noisy things.

I can’t even begin to worry about the whole going back to work process.  Egad.  My new job that I haven’t even started.  This could work in my favor slightly since it is a fresh start.  Heck, I still need to clean out my old desk!  Thinking about it now, I may avoid the cafeteria for the first month back.  I’m sure I’ll get a lot of “I haven’t seen you in forever” comments.

You know what I just realized…I have to get another IV on the 20th.  Bleh.  I’m going to focus on the positive here.  Forget the stupid IV.

 

We have a lot to celebrate these days.  Making it as far as we have, the good chance that boy could come home with us, the outpouring of love and support that we continue to receive from family and friends, the list goes on and on.

  1. How exciting!!! I know it’s been a long road for you both…can’t wait to see lil man 🙂

  2. I know what you mean about going home. Dec 30 was the lasts I saw of it, and the painters have come in since. It’s exciting and scary at the same time to have a date, still hoping I make it to mine on March 17. Since I am having a c-section, maybe we will see home on the same day!

  3. congrats girlie!

  4. So glad you are beginning to countdown! I hope the time goes by quickly for you–you have already made it so far! In terms of the IV, I can relate-after being poked and prodded so many times, it’s like a re-traumatization of all the other times. I am still suffering from IV PTSD and am not looking forward to being needle-ized again either!

    • 9 days!!! As for the IV I’m going to ask very nicely that it go in my right ARM and NOT the back oft left hand. And if that doesn’t work I will become belligerent patient for the first time in 3 months.

      I hope you are handling bed rest well and behaving as you should at home.

  5. How GREAT! I’m so super excited for you!!!! Yay! I’m also a little worried because I’ve grown to love your blogs and constant pix! haha What am I going to read at 9pm when this preggo should be sleeping?!?!?

    I’m also jealous that you get to meet little man so soon (though I know it seems like it’s already been forever). I still have another 10 weeks of achy sleeping. lol

    Overall, I can’t WAIT to see his beautiful pix!!! I hope he keeps his hair…dads/grandpa’s love to be right!! Yay!!!

    • Oh I’m sure I’ll still be blogging…just more like weekly and not from the hospital. You’re down to 10 weeks? That’s awesome!!

      I can’t wait to see his face. It’s killing me that we can’t get a 4d.
