Still Here. Still Pregnant

No, I have not had the baby yet. But, I know his plans are to arrive very soon. I have 2 more weeks until it's "D-day." He has that much time to make his entrance before my doctor will induce me.

Inductions are not fun. Or so I hear. I am nervous about being induced. But, I know that I have to trust God and I have to trust my body to do what it was built to do. Right now, I am working on that trust thing. :o) And I am also working on all the methods I can muster up to get this kid out naturally.

The craziest part of all of this, is that in 2 weeks my life is going to be totally different. Everything that I know now will be completely changed. My view of the world, my place in this world, how I feel about certain's all going to change. I usually don't handle change very well. I like things to be predictable, and the same. And when things divert from that path, I start to freak out a little bit. But, for once in my life, I am not freaking out. Not yet, at least. I know things are going to be different, but it's the kind of different that I am looking forward to. Not the kind that I dread.

Please continue to pray for me, Curtis and Charlie (yes!! That is his name!!). Pray that he decides to come on his own, and if he doesn't, pray that I will be at peace with my delivery. Right now, that is what I am struggling with the most. That, and the lack of control that I have right now!

Aww, poor thing! Not sure if you remember, but I was induced due to high BP at 38 weeks. I was 3cm/80% and the Pitocin worked like a charm. I had an awesome delivery.

Like you, I also don't do well with change. It was hard the first two weeks after Carter, but you get use to the new schedule and your new view on life. Now it's just absolutely wonderful.

Best of luck dear. Can't wait to see you on 0-6.
