Mike and I showed up bright and early yesterday to Dr. Risky’s office for my amnio. Yesterday was the first day of a union strike at Dr. Risky’s hospital (her office is adjacent to the hospital) so it was pretty crazy in the entire area. Despite that, I felt pretty calm until I was laying on the table in her office. My blood pressure was even low. Then Dr. Risky started an ultrasound to check The Acrobat and locate a good pocket of fluid for my amnio.
The Acrobat is was going nuts. Wiggling and kicking and completely the opposite of what you want right before sticking a very large needle into the area. Dr. Risky said, “I keep finding spots and he keeps moving…” Even though nothing ever seems to phase Dr. Risky, I suddenly was extremely nervous, especially when she casually tossed out, “Well if he hits the needle, he’ll move away…he can feel pain.” Awesome, doctor. Thanks for that nugget.
The actual needle insertion felt fine, if a bit weird. A prick of a needle and some pressure, and then my uterus contracted a bunch after the needle was removed. No pain from the needle, honestly. I know I’m a bit desensitized to needles after giving myself hundreds of shots, but this really didn’t hurt. Thank goodness, The Acrobat stayed still for the time the needle was inserted.
After the amnio was done, Dr. Risky, Mike, and I discussed the plan. A little more than four weeks ago, Dr. Risky scheduled me for a c-section on May 23, the day The Acrobat officially hits full-term. It was always with the contingency of “depending on the outcome of [my] fetal lung maturity amnio,” but Dr. Risky was always very confident that the lungs would be mature. Mike and I were nervous about delivering at 37 weeks, but Dr. Risky calmed us by laying out her reasons for choosing that day:
~Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (my clotting disorder) increases the risk of still birth
~Gestational diabetes increases the risk of still birth
~A classical (vertical) and transverse (horizontal) c-section scar increases the risk of uterine rupture if I go into labor
~Plus some other risk like pre-eclampsia. All the super-fun ones!
All those sounded like great reasons to deliver at 37 weeks. Sign me and Mike up. I started mentally preparing, although if I am honest I didn’t think I’d deliver on May 23 – I really thought I’d go into labor before that. When we told members of our family the scheduled date, we always said, “But I’ll never make it that far.” History, you know?
Anyway, back to the plan. During the ultrasound, Dr. Risky had taken measurements of The Acrobat and had been very pleased by his size. She was certain his lungs would be mature. So certain that I even went over to the hospital and did all of my pre-op prep. Dr. Risky said someone would call me on Wednesday morning with the results of the amnio. But then my phone rang at 5:30, thirty minutes after Dr. Risky’s office had closed for the day.
It was a nurse from Dr. Risky’s office, telling me that the preliminary results from the amnio were back, and The Acrobat’s lungs were “intermediate.” I was like, “….huh?” because this was not the result I was expecting…kind of like when you take a sip of your iced tea but you accidentally grabbed your kid’s milk…your brain can’t compute what it’s experiencing. The nurse went on to say that the lungs were not ready, and my c-section was canceled, and I needed to call back in the morning to make an appointment to come in next Tuesday for an exam and possibly another amnio. I was just like, “Okay….” and the call ended. Then my brain went over to the Bad Place.
All those reasons Dr. Risky used to justify delivering the baby early jumped to the front of my mind. Plus, I’m off my blood thinners, so I am now at an increased clotting risk on top of the other potential complications. Do I want The Acrobat to have perfect lungs? OF COURSE. I’m clearly not insensitive to that after everything Madeline went through. But now I have the weight of the other risks and I am terrified. Remember how I was like, “Oh you guys, I am going to be so breezy this pregnancy! I’m so breezy, LOOK AT HOW BREEZY I AM!” Well, I am not breezy anymore. I am officially Monster Pregnant Lady, and I will eat your face off.
I will be calling Dr. Risky’s office first thing in the morning with a list of (so far) twenty-seven questions. I need answers, and she’s going to have to give them. And she’s probably going to be like, “What happened to Breezy Heather?” And I will answer in my Zuul voice, “THERE IS NO BREEZY HEATHER, ONLY MONSTER PREGNANT LADY.” It’s been a while since I’ve had to be an advocate but I’m pretty sure it’s like riding a bike. A pissed-off, scared, monster-possessed bike.
The only person brave enough to come near me.
i know you are scared. i bet she’ll only wait one more week. just keep in mind that she is weighing it all out including having a LIVING mom to raise this healthy baby boy. how long have you been off the clotting med? sending many good wishes that this week will settle down for you, that you’ll get some rest while you guys enjoy being your happy 3some, and that mr. healthy acrobat will be here in a week!
Sarah G says:
Can I just say that I think you are incredible for being Breezy Heather at all during this pregnancy? I am honestly IN AWE of the mental Olympics you’ve pulled off. Hang in there lady, XOXO.
Well, if Monster Pregnant Lady starts feeling REALLY feisty, you can always make Mike drink the fat Thinking breezy, lung maturing thoughts for you and The Acrobat.
Becca Masters says:
Oh goodness! I’d be terrified too!
Just remember Dr Risky is an expert and she would never put you in unnecessary risk. I’m sure acrobat will be absolutely fine and so will you.
They wouldn’t have cancelled the delivery if they weren’t sure that you’d be ok for a few more days.
From what I’ve read, all of those risks (bar the scar one, not sure on that) most women are ok up until just over 38w. Many go right up to 39w and its fine. So try to pull back Breezy Heather, she’s still in there.
You’ve done amazing and will continue to do amazing.
And do exactly what you have been doing. Take it one day at a time
Oh I like those 38w & 39w #s!!!!!!!!!
This. The idea is not to have you go to 40 weeks, but even next week it will only be 38 weeks! Hang in there!
Oh Sweetie!!! Scary!!! I can only imagine!!! And how dare they even infer that the Acrobat isn’t up to par? “Intermediate” indeed!!!! We all know the Acrobat is much like Mary Poppins: practically perfect in every way!
But what about those lovely steroids they can inject that grow baby’s lungs at super fast rates??? My friends who had pre-eclampsia had those steroids for a couple days and then had c-sections… I’d be advocating for those, if they are safe for you to take in, so you can deliver sooner rather than later, as you are off your non-clotting meds–if the steroids aren’t on your list of 27 items, add ’em! And please update us ASAP with all of Dr Risky’s answers! (As I’m sure you’ve nothing else to do…)
Maybe, just to make me feel better, you should just act like you never got that call and go try to check in at the hospital anyway in the morning and just refuse to leave until Dr Risky comes and admits you for a nice restful, safe week? I’m all for that! Then you’d have lots of people around to answer all of our immediate questions!
In the meantime, thinking loving, calming, peaceful, hopeful, stay-in-safe-and-sound-til-everything-is-ready thoughts for you, baby, and Mike.
Give Annie extra big hugs. And consider yourself hugged from me…a practically perfect stranger.
I’ve been reading your blog for a long time but this is my first comment – I had to comment because I too am pissed just reading this. Talk about the last thing you deserve to be dealing with after all you’ve been through. This was supposed to be your MUCH deserved perfect pregnancy (not that it’s NOT still, but jeez), and I’m feeling the fury right along with you. Try to hang in there lady, and know that your anger and upset is totally justified. But also remember that he’ll be here soon, and he will be perfect, just you wait. XO
Sending you some good thoughts—I know you need them. You’ve been so strong…hang on, not much longer, you’ve got this!
Heather, as I’m sure you know from the wise Phoebe Buffay: “saying you’re breezy totally negates the breezy!” But seriously, best wishes to you, The Acrobat, and your family…sending only good thoughts your way.
That was actually the wise Joey. No, excuse me, the wisdom-ous Joey. =)
Heather and Mike and Annie, so many prayers coming your way as these difficult decisions are made!
Joey actually used the word “negate” ?? I’m going to have to look up that episode! LOL
Sending lots of lung maturing good wishes.
Hope Dr Risky can give you the answers you need
WHOA!!! I was NOT expecting that either!!! I’m so sorry for your worry Heather but I completely understand it. Maybe they can give you a steroid shot to help make his lungs mature? Did the nurse even explain what exactly “Intermediate” means to you? I’m SURE as soon as the Dr. found out your result she started to make a game plan for you. What I know of Dr. Risky is she would NEVER put either of you in danger – she adores you. Take a breath and just say your peace to her and see what she has to say. I KNOW everything is going to be Okay Sweetheart. You’ve come so far and YOU are one of the strongest advocates there is when it comes to protecting one’s child. Sending you a HUGE HUG and know I’m be thinking and praying for you and your perfect baby boy!!!! I’ll check back during the day to see if there are any feedback you felt like sharing.
Lots of Love,
Can they give him steroids to help his lungs mature faster? Both my girls delivered early (34 weeks and 35 weeks) and that helped them. Darn boys are slower, I guess (and it continues for the rest of their lives!)
My thoughts and prayers are with you!!! With the collective Internet sending you good thoughts and love, I’m sure everything will turn out perfectly!
Thinking good thoughts for you. Hang in there! After all, you ARE Superwoman! xx
I’d totally be all Zuul too. We’ll all be thinking of you all day. Hope you can feel the support!
You have faith in Dr. Risky, so let that carry you for a few more days. The upside…There is potential for Steroid treatment, If I remember how things go…Eyes on the prize!
I have no doubt your doctor is making the right decision for you and your baby. Hang in there- I’m sure it’s just a matter of delaying up to another 10 days. At this stage in the game, growth in the lungs can happen very quickly and you’ll be all set. Keep focusing on that beautiful and healthy baby that you’ll be having SO SOON! All the best.
I have no words of wisdom for this, but you are strong, smart, and a ferocious Mama. You’ve got this! Hope to see photos of a healthy little boy with the Spohr head soon.
I know you’re probably going to get a ton of anecdotes here. I will say that I’m a type 1 diabetic and had my kids at age 36, almost 39 and almost 41, so I had “old age” against me as well. My first two were born 30 and 29 days early, and for my third, we were all shocked when I passed those days and wound up being induced at 37w5d, so it is possible that Acrobat is going to do things on his own timetable (the third kid who needed to be induced is still a kid who does things when he is ready and not before). I was induced because he wasn’t responding well on the biophysical profile, which may or may not have been related to being diabetic. All three of my kids were fine and came home with me two days after birth. But yeah, I know what it’s like to think you’re going to be done and still be pregnant. Not fun.
I know it’s scary. Any one of the risks would scare anyone. I don’t know if the steroids are not advised for you because of some of the other issues going on, but it’s worth asking about. I am hoping that once you talk to Dr. Risky, she will have the answers you need that will reassure you.
Debbie A-H says:
Sending all good, lung-marturing thoughts your way.
Oh my. I am sure Dr. Risky has all of your best interest and has weighed the pros and cons. I have heard that baby boys are slower to have mature lungs. I had preterm labor and finally they took me off drugs at 35 weeks and I went into labor quickly thereafter. In the delivery room the nurse said, oh well at least its a girl. They do better this early. I was unsure if that was a comment, or supposed to be a compliment. I cannot wait to see baby boy Spohr. Good luck with Dr. Risky this morning.
I’d like to say something to put you at ease but instead I’ll be honest – I would be in the bad place too. I hope the morning call goes well!
All of your questions are warranted and I’m glad to hear you will be your own advocate. It sounds like Dr. Risky will listen and have a dialog with you and together you all can come up with a game plan. Sending prayers and healthy wishes your way.
Well darn! I will be thinking of you…
Oh I am so sorry! I know how you feel – they are so worried about any baby not going to term. Heck when my water broke at 38 weeks they were debating on whether or not I should deliver. They wanted me to get to 39 weeks but baby had other ideas obviously! I hope you get some answers and just trust that your doctor is doing the right thing.
I’m so sorry – I had a roommate while I was in the hospital while pg with twins. She was in Trendelenberg from 30 weeks – no getting up at all. AT ALL. I went in to be induced and I saw one of the nurses and asked after the former roomie. She said “we tappd her this morning and the lungs aren’t mature. We are all avoiding her”.
You are not alone. Hope you get some good answers today.
Heather, I read your blog every day but never comment. Just wanted you to know that I am praying for you and for the health and safety of your sweet baby boy. May God fill you with His Peace and Presence during these fretful days. In the darkest times of my life, I have always felt His presence there, and I pray you will, too. Can’t wait to see your precious Acrobat!
Sending positive, happy and very calming thoughts and wishes your way. You are doing the right thing by hitting the Dr. with your questions and having her answer each and every one of them.
So long as you have Princess Dr. Annabel tending to you and the Acrobat, I know everything will be fine and those lungs will mature like the fairy dust that scatters through the air and makes things 100% better and sweeter all around.
I’m thinking of you all and hoping for good answers to your questions and a safe delivery when the time is right.
I am sorry about the not so great news. But hang in there, this Dr. seems like a pro and will keep you and baby safe.
That acrobat is so lucky to have an advocate mommy like you. You ask those 27+ questions and then some until your mind is (a little) more at ease. You are allowed to be as non-breezy as you want to be, mama Spohr.
We are all thinking of you and pulling for you! Sending you and your whole family lots of love!
So sorry to hear this. I can only imagine the fear you have. Sounds like things are out of your control, but by all means, take the reins. Mama Spohr knows best. Now attach that doppler to your body and lay down. I WISH I had a doppler at home when I had my daughter. They would have had to wrestle that thing out of my hands. Sending good thoughts to you.
I’m so sorry you didn’t get the results you were expecting and hoping for. I had preeclampsia with my 1st pregnancy, and at almost 36 weeks, they did an amnio (and I thought it was the most awful thing ever, so you are very brave), and told me his lungs were not ready yet, so they were going to give me steroid shots for two days in a row and then induce me in a week. Well, turns out, I got the shot 1 time and spontaneously went into labor right at the 36 week mark. Turns out his lungs were absolutely fine. The only reason we had to stay at the hospital longer was because he contracted group B strep, so he had to have antibiotics for 7 days. Anyway, my point is that the amnio didn’t seem to be correct unless the steroid worked within hours of being injected (which it may, I don’t really know). But maybe you could ask about steroids? Praying for you.
Oh that just stinks! Thinking of you and hoping she gives you all the answers you need. I know nothing is going to make you feel better though until you are holding this little person safely in your arms. You’ve done AWESOME with staying calm this whole entirely pregnancy and I think you are entirely allowed to become crazy pregnant lady if that’s what you are feeling. Hang in there, you are almost to the finish line!
Jana Holdeman Frerichs says:
Prayers and good wishes coming your way. I think it’s okay to be monster, pregnant lady now. You have overcome so much to get here. All of your babies are lucky to have you as their mom.
cindy w says:
If there is ever a time to justify the emergence of Monster Pregnant Lady, I’d say this is it. Hope you get some good answers.
I hope Dr. Risky has some answers for you tomorrow and a solution that works for all of you. Thinking about you and sending lots of positive thoughts.
Hang in there, Heather! I can’t imagine how you’re feeling, but I hope you were able to talk to the doc and get some reassurance. You have so many people out here rooting for you! Sending you and Acrobat good vibes for a perfectly healthy conclusion to this saga that is pregnancy!
I’m so sorry, Heather. You totally have the right to be a monster to advocate for yourself and your baby. I hope you find out the new plan soon and you are at peace with it and able to relax a little. Like the rest of your readers, I cannot wait to meet The Acrobat and I am so happy for you that you are so close to being there!
Aw, he’s a mama’s boy. Doesn’t want to leave you. Just remember an increased risk of something is usually a pretty small one and generally the odds are still heavily in your favor. It’s why I still eat bacon.
So sorry Heather! Lots of hugs, happy thoughts and prayers coming your way! Hang in there Mama, you can do this!! XOXO
Man, oh man. Here I go again, asking the Universe to throw you a freakin’ bone!
P.S. Your Zuul comment made Brent and I both laugh. Even when angry, you’re so freakin’ witty & hilarious.
Lisa F. says:
I totally understand why you’re nervous. The good news is that during the amnio the Acrobat was living up to his nickname, so my fingers are crossed that Dr. Risky will give you the 27 (and more) answers you’re looking for!
I know tons of people have said this already but maybe they can give you the steroid injections (just what you wanted another shot! I had a single shot before I delivered my 37 weeker and he did great. I am thinking about you every day…praying for you and the Acrobat.
Expat Mom says:
I would be freaking out, too. However, while there are risks to waiting, not having his lungs ready is a far bigger risk, which I’m sure Dr. Risky is considering. There are ways to help the baby build up his lungs quickly, so you shouldn’t have to wait too much longer either way. And it’s still early. Like a previous poster said, the main risks are after 37/38 weeks. You can do this, you’re ALMOST there!
That same freaking thing happened with my last baby Sailor, amino and all they said I could do the amino the next week and see, after having a pregnancy with a few weeks at time in the hosp with preterm, I was miserable and fianlly had a child like tantrum. I then decided to wait 2 weeks till My 9th wedding anniverssary and her Gpa’s birthday and had her May 7th which I now have learned I will nerver have another really nice anniverssary until Sailor is 18 LOL Good luck sweety and you look so skinny for being full term!
Maybe the nurse got something wrong. My youngest was born a month early and his lungs were mature. He was also 6lbs 4oz. I went into labor with my oldest two months early and his lungs were mature. The terbutaline shots kept in him for longer but the amnio determined that his lungs were developed. Every child is different though. Maybe they can give you a steroid shot to help with this.
Grrr…nothing worse then the phone call by the nurse 30 minutes after closing. To be honest I don’t think that is a good way to do things. Anyway, with that being said and fears and anxieties in full effect, I know there is not much I can see to you that will ease your fears right now, only Dr. Risky can do that. Ask all your questions and I hope that will ease your mind a little bit. She will answer them and will have a plan to get you through the next couple of weeks. I know I don’t have a crystal ball and I really shouldn’t be telling you this because the first thing you are going to think is, “HOW WOULD SHE KNOW????????” but dammit I am going to say it anyway, I think things will be fine. There I said it (old blonde bimbo hiding under desk now to avoid pregnant lady wrath). Thinking of you, Heather!
I am pulling for you, man. Really really pulling for you right now. A total stranger (been reading for years though) is thinking of you and seeing a healthy, beautiful baby boy in your arms.
Did you ask about Heparin??
Martha H. says:
They said the same about my daughter but when she was born about 5 days later, she was fine. We never had any trouble and she was 3 weeks early.
Sending you lots of prayers this week. I know it will all be okay Heather. Your baby will healthy and happy just like Annabel. XOXOXOXO
Can’t they give you an injection of ??Steroids?? to mature the lungs quicker?
Everything will be fine. You just breathe in and breathe out.
I know this is a family blog an all, but I’m just going to say it … shitty. Seriously. The universe really needs to cut you a break. I know you are getting all kinds of stories in the comments, but I’ll just provide my own. I’m pregnant now and have a recently discovered thyroid condition, the nurse practitioner called me because my doc was out of town and sent me immediately to a specialist and basically scared the crap out of me. My doctor called me when she got back and was like, “oh … what? You are fine, go see the specialist when you can. No big whoop.” I hope hope hope that when you talk to Risky she will have better answers than just the lungs are “intermediate.”
Thinking of you and the Acrobat and hoping that Dr. Risky has an awesome plan in place. Hopefully you will get all the answers (and peace) you need!
I can’t imagine the frustration you have got to be experiencing. Good luck this week. You are in my thoughts constantly.
I know they don’t do the betamethasone shots after 34 weeks, but I wonder if the steroids would get the baby to produce a little more surfactant to make his lungs good to go, even this late?
Also, can you go back on blood thinner shots since you’re going to be waiting another week? I know it’s not ideal, but it would protect you guys while you’re waiting.
I was on lovenox and aspirin with my second daughter, and I totally understand where you’re coming from with the worry. My first daughter engrained panic and worry during the pregnancy with my second daughter at the milestones where things went wrong the first time. (I didn’t know I needed blood thinners with my first daughter.) Is Dr. Risky close enough to do biophysical profiles and non-stress tests every day or every other day? I feel like that would help you wait it out. I agree, though, being off of blood thinners and waiting for a week to do another check is terrifying. You have every reason to be monster pregnant lady.
Nothing but love, support and prayers for you guys. Advocate away and figure out what is best for you and sweet little boy. xoxoxoxo
Oh my gosh, you are so entitled to be Monster Pregnant Lady right now. I wish things could just go easily for you for once. I was admitted at 33 weeks with my rainbow baby and after they listed off ten million things “possibly” going wrong I stayed there being Monster Pregnant Lady until he decided to come out at 34 weeks. He was a healthy 5 pounder, hoping everything goes smoothly and you are holding your baby boy very soon.
I’m so sorry that you had to cancel the C-section, and had to hear news that given everything you’ve been through is scary. Good for you for asking questions. Keep talking through this and asserting yourself and your feelings, it is better than keeping your worries inside. You are in really good hands with Dr. Risky. Maybe this surprise move is The Acrobat’s last big trick before he comes down off the swings and joins the rest of the circus.
I’m sure someone has mentioned this, but why can’t you have the series of two steroid shots to mature the lungs? When there were worries I was in premature labour with my twins, I had the shots. Surely they could just give them a day or two before your c section, if all the other risks are so great? Worth asking about. Good luck.
Studies show that giving steroid shots after 34 weeks isn’t effective and in some instances, babies having received the shots have more complications than those who didn’t get them.
Thinking of you all today, Heather!! Those calls after business hours make me crazy. I’m hope you got answers to your questions this morning.
Many hugs to you!
Deborah Pucci says:
Keeping you and the acrobat in my thoughts and prayers.
Thinking of you and the Acrobat and keeping you both in my prayers!
Saying a prayer for your and your sweet baby right now!
Christina Bartz says:
I am so sorry for more stress. The finish line is so close! I can see it and hope you can too. Hang in there Mommy and Daddy Spohr, The Acrobat just wants to stay inside a little longer to gain strength in his lungs so he can reallllly cheer on the Giants this season!
Wanted to simply say that I’ll be thinking of you guys in the next several days to come. So glad you share these posts with us, your words put a smile on my face (even if you want to naw it off!!). Much love to you guys!!
I think everyone has covered what I wanted to say. I’d tell you not to worry, but I know I’d feel the same way. I’ll say a prayer for you. ((Hugs))
I hope things went well when you talked to your doctor. Inreallynsee things working out but I know if it were me, I would be thinking the worst scenarios too. I was just looking at people.com and saw this story and for a minute I couldn’t figure out who this boy, zach, reminded me of with his beautiful eyes, great smile and wavy hair but then it hit me. He looked an older boy version of your beautiful maddie. http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20701996,00.html. I think of you and your family often and yours is the first site I read every morning. My best to you always
Abby Leviss says:
ANYONE in your position would be growling and roaring like a monster. I turn crazy for much less – ALL OF THE TIME!
Heather – you have a right to be mad and crazy. Your pregnancies have been difficult and taxing on your body and your emotions. You’re afraid and concerned and ready to be done. I hope Dr. Risky has been able to assuage your fears and that by this time next week you’ll be cuddling with Acrobat, Rigby, and Annie.
Geez – you’d think I was your bff with the amount of time I’ve spent worried and thinking about you guys today. I’ve been wishing you the best and now I am especially anxious to read your posts in the morning to see how things are going. Sending positive thoughts your way!
Leslie K says:
I am praying for you and your sweet acrobat!
I have to admit I have been checking back here all day to see if you had updated anything. You are totally justified to go pregnant monster lady crazy right now. Of course you want his lungs mature, but for the love of God you need this little boy to get outta that belly!!!!! I cannot even imagine how you aren’t losing your freaking mind, demanding to be admitted to the hospital for monitoring, driving to the doctor every day. Whatever it takes to ensure this little man gets here safely and soundly asap!!!!! Sending you prayers and all kinds of good vibes. xo
May the force be with the Monster Pregnant Lady! Sending you hope and hugs. xo
Hang in there!
You rock for keeping it breezy all this time. Now you, awesome advocate, make the doc do her job. Sending much love to your adorable family.
I am so sorry thing did not go as planned. You and the Acrobat are in my prayers. God bless!
Sending good wishes and positive thoughts! I am sure Acrobat will have very healthy body and also will have mature lungs!!!My son was born at 37 weeks of gestation and he was very small(only 4lbs and 11 ounces) and the doctor was concern about his lungs on my delivery day because she knew the baby would be very small but he was born with good lungs and I went home after two days. There was no complication even he was so small! So don’t worry Heather. If your doctor wants you to wait may be you have to follow that but if you had to deliver Acrobat early he would be fine. Can you start blood thinner now?
Wish you good luck Heather!
Oh gosh, Heather…
I’m late reading this post. But yeah…so frustrating! Hang in there, is all I can say. You have good doctors looking out for you. I have every confidence that all is going to be okay with you and with The Acrobat.
Soon you’ll be holding your little boy, and he’ll be screaming at the top of his perfectly formed lungs. I can’t wait to see a picture of his face! I can’t wait to hear what you guys name him! And I can’t wait to see Annie holding him, wearing her proud big sister grin. It’s all so exciting! You getting your c-section pushed back is only pulling you more towards my little guy’s due date. I’m telling you, our little boys are going to be born on the same date. Either that, or you will deliver on MY due date (May 29th) and I will be late and deliver on YOUR due date. That would be funny. My other boys have been anywhere from 6 to 8 days late, so that actually wouldn’t surprise me.
Okay…well try to relax and not worry. I know it’s hard not to worry, that’s what us moms do, right?
I’ll be thinking about you!
No suggestions or advice here. I know you already have all your questions together and hopefully get the answers you need. Just sending you good thoughts and wishes. Wishing you and your little Acrobat all the very best for these last few days before you meet him!
