39 weeks and off we go!!!

I am scheduled to be induced tomorrow morning. We have to be at the hospital at 4 am. I am experiencing all types of feelings. I am excited to see Carson first and foremost! However, I am nervous about all the stuff that labor entails. I am trying really hard not to focus on the details and just focus my attention on the fact that I will finally not be pregnant and will be holding my sweet baby boy. Of course, the thought of having my blood pressure taken multiple times is scary for me but I got through it the first time~just got to suck it up! I am also not looking forward to the recovery~all things that I didn't know about the first time. The upside is that there are a lot of things I do know about now and will be more prepared to bring a newborn home, knowing better what to expect in the weeks to come.

I am also missing my dad alot right now. He was at the hospital the whole day the first time. He sat at the foot of my bed in a chair, talking to me, reading a book, and just basically being there to comfort me for hours. I remember his presence so much that I even remember what he was wearing on that day! I am taking a picture of him to use as my "focal point" just to remind myself that even though he is not there physically, he wouldn't miss this day. I know he will be there in spirit~I truly believe that!

I am taking my laptop to the hospital and will be posting pics as soon as I can! Keep all of us in your prayers!!


  1. Praying for you friend! Can't wait to meet him!!!

  2. Prayers for you! I cannot wait to "meet" Carson!
