The final countdown

This morning, I had my last weekly OB-GYN appointment before Thursday's scheduled c-section. It was the first time doctors looked at the fetal monitoring chart and said, "The baby looks great!" In previous appointments, the baby sometimes seemed sluggish and the doctor would have me drink juice to wake him up a bit.

Today, Dr. Chapman, was a little late for my appointment because of a c-section surgery that ran long. So while he was driving from the hospital to the clinic, his colleague, Dr. Reider, stopped by to check on me. He's the obstetrician for two of my friends - he was also in my fifth grade class! He wished me luck on Thursday.

I'm starting to get a little anxious about the surgery. With Nico, we ended up with an emergency c-section after 14 hours of induced labor. By the time we decided to opt for the c-section, I was exhausted and just ready for it all to be over; there was no time to be nervous.

I'm nervous now.
