I cannot believe that this is my last afternoon as a pregnant lady! I am scheduled to arrive at the birth center tomorrow at 6 a.m. and my c-section is scheduled for 8 a.m., bright and early! I’m so glad that I am the first one. The no-drinking-water after midnight is going to be hard for me, so the earlier I have the surgery, that much faster I can have something to drink, LOL This morning I went for my pre-surgical testing, which was no big deal. Basically I filled out a bunch of forms, was told not to eat or drink after midnight, had two vials of blood drawn and peed in a cup. I’m so excited, yet nervous at the same time. Although I’ve had two c-sections before, both of those were after several hours of hard labord. It’s going to be so weird walking in there tomorrow, feeling absolutely fine.
I have no idea if laptops are allowed at the birth center, so I might be offline until the weekend (although a girlfriend who recently gave birth at a different hospital was able to have her laptop with her, so maybe I’ll get lucky — but I’m not really going to count on that). In the meantime, I will have Drew update my Facebook status for me, since most of you are on there anyway.
The next time I blog, I will be a mom of three! Wish me luck!
