Birth Day!

This morning I had my final drs. appt. as a pregnant woman. WOW. Due to my blood pressure skyrocketing (I'm always below normal, even pregnant) and my swollen ankles being a nice pinkish/red color, Dr. Sams worried about toxemia. So he decided that we need to go on and get Hayden here. We're going in tonight about 10:30/11:00 to do paperwork and get settled, then we're starting pitocin (spell check) at 5 AM, and Dr. Sams plans to break my water at 7. My world is about to turn upside down.

I had to go to work after our appt. this morning because I thrive on routine. I needed the schedule so I didn't bother David all day and pace the floor of my house, fretting. It helped the day pass and kept my mind occupied. I texted David that tonight was our last official night as a "couple." We've known this was coming for 9 months, but somehow it just hits you square in the face. We'll go to the hospital as 2 and leave as 3! Amazing! I have a human life inside of me that tomorrow I will hold and love on in my arms. I'm a million different emotions right now, but blessed is at the top.
