D-Day, aka Delivery Day, is upon us. It has seemed so far off for nearly 9 months, and I can't believe that in less than 24 hours, I will be a mother. I'm definitely ready to meet my son but I'm also bittersweet right now. I have enjoyed being pregnant so much and I'm really going to miss Ethan being in my belly. Of course, I'm also to the point of being so miserable and uncomfortable, that I'm looking forward to getting him out of there!
We have elected to do a C-section tomorrow morning at 7:30. After much thought, consideration, prayer, and discussion, Ronnie, myself and my doctor have decided that this is our best option given all the information we have. Ethan is a BIG boy! And, my cervix is small, and is not preparing itself the way it should for a delivery with a due date less than one week away. There is a long family history on my side of the women carrying long after their due dates, not dilating, LONG labors and traumatic deliveries. And, I seem to be following in those same footsteps, so we've decided to avoid the chances of spending hours in labor with no success and having to do a C-section anyway.
I'm terrified and a complete nervous wreck, but I know everything will be fine. My main concern is that Ethan arrive safely and be healthy when he gets here. So, please keep our little family, the doctor, and all those involved in the surgery tomorrow in your prayers. I will post updates and pictures as soon as I am able.
It's My 6-Year Blogaversary!
