Free At Last

Yesterday was a very good day. I had an NST in the morning, that the baby passed with flying colors. And then I saw my favorite midwife who not only let me off bed rest, but also said I can start weaning off the P.rocardia and see how things go. (While the P.rocardia is way better than t.erbutline in terms of side effects, it still gives me awful headaches.) I am scheduled for a b.iophysical p.rofile with Dr C. tomorrow afternoon and another NST on Friday. As we were chatting, she assured me that they will be keeping a close eye on this little one the next couple of weeks and "If anything looks at all funny to any of us, then we'll just go over to the hospital and have a baby."

Have a baby???!?!? Holy Crap, I might actually get to bring a baby home!



* Of course, as soon as I wrote the above, I thought about deleting it- just in case. Don't want to tempt fate or whatever.

You are too funny...I totally know what you mean about tempting fate by saying something positive. I feel the same way w/ buying baby stuff...f*ck it - I'm throwing out the receipts :)

You certainly can still beat me to the birthing punch. 39 wks 2 days for me!

Yay for you and the baby! Can't wait to read the exciting news of the arrival and how it feels to hold that little one in your arms:)

So excited for you!! I felt the same way too about not wanting to put it in writing that I was going to get to take the baby home. In fact it wasn't until I got in the elevator with Andy that I could finally breathe.. after 9 mos. I could finally breathe. You will too.
