We Have A Date

I went down to Philly yesterday for my final visit with the OBs there. We saw yet another new doctor, and he was OK. Abit of a space cadet. He asked more than once if this was my first child? He said I'm about 2cm dilated and 50% effaced, which means I'm on my way to having Abby soon. He agreed that since the drive is far, and that I'm progressing well on my own, that I can come in next Wednesday, 12/20, to be induced.

In some ways we are totally relieved to have a date set and be able to do some kind of planning for the big event. On the other hand I am scared to death. Scared for Abby's surgery, but also that being induced will make my labor more complicated and difficult than Anna's. Then again, Abby could decide to show herself before next Wednesday! We'll just have to wait and see. With all the focus on Abby's heart and what will happen after she is born, I almost forgot that I have to go through labor to get her out!

Bryan's vacation starts this Friday and my parents are flying in on Sunday to help with Anna. We'll all be happy if Abby could just wait until everyone is in place before she comes.

Now we wait...

You will be in my thoughts, especially next week. I hope everything goes well with your labor. Abby will be in my heart as she begins her journey. I look foward to reading updates here.
