I am scheduled for a c-section on September 16 — yep, 5 short days from today. Wow! I can’t believe this pregnancy is finally coming to an end. I was speaking with a friend of mine today and she reminded me how long I have been waiting for this upcoming moment… the moment I finally meet my baby. Although patience is definitely not my virtue, I have had to endure some serious tests in patience – from the years of having no luck conceiving, enduring months of acupuncture treatment, infertility drugs & IUI cycles, to an 8.8 month pregnancy and at long last, there is an end to the tunnel.
It is still surreal to me that on Thursday at around 2pm I will get to hold a human creation of my husband and myself. What will she look like? Who will she act like? So many unanswered questions will soon be answered.
I’m so excited to get back to a routine that includes this little one. I know, I know… that won’t happen for many weeks or months as my mommy friends keep reminding me, but sooner or later, our little family will become a working unit that affords us the ability to maintain our social lives, work hard and play hard, as we like to do.
I also hope to maintain this blog and as we evolve and life moves forward, I’m sure this blog will morph into more of a “mommy blog” than the randomness it has been in the past.
So watch this space for lots of pictures, stories, laughs and tales of misery as we move into the next phase of our lives: parenthood.
ps. Don’t worry… Lucy is still daughter # 1 in our minds…
