In 24 hours

In 24 hours
- I will be in a hospital
- I will be able to sleep on my stomach again
- I will have my last day of morning sickness
- I will be having my stomach cut open, while my husband watches assuring me everything is fine.,
- In 24 hours I will be hearing the sounds of a newborn cry.

It is a day of mixed emotions for me. With the thoughts above & others going through my head.

I am excited - I can't wait to not be pregnant & meet this little guy.

I am nervous - it's been a few years since we have added any changes to our family. How is it going to effect me, my hubby, & my adorable 3 boys I already have.

I am scared - I hate surgery & hospitals, I know this is a good thing, but I still get scared.

I am grateful - for those who are tending my kids while at the hospital & those helping me once I get out, for my friend that came last night to give me a haircut & manicure so I could go into the hospital feeling kind of cute.,

I still have lots to do - laundry, cleaning, chores, packing bags, making bread & food to put in the freezer, errands to run, more laundry. All the things I can think of, so our house runs smoothly while I am gone & once again when I am home.

The next 24 hours are going to go by quickly & slowly all at the same time. And so today I am trying to just enjoy it,

In 24 hours I will be holding our new baby & my life will never be the same again.

  1. As soon as I saw the title of your post, I knew this must be it! Is this your first c-section? Sounds like you are very prepared and I'm sure everything will go smoothly. I think having a delivery scheduled is more nerve-wracking than just letting it happen! Happy pushing! Can't wait to hear more.
