Puff's Scheduled Arrival

I saw the doctor this morning. The sonogram shows the Puff weighing in at 7lbs. 3oz. at the moment, but they said that the estimate could be off by as much as a pound at this late in the game.

According to that weight the doctor is more than willing to allow me to attempt a vaginal delivery.

I will check into the hospital on Thursday night around 8pm. (They best have the CW on the cable tv there cause I will be sad if I miss Supernatural ;) and such) The doctor is going to try to get me to dialate some overnight with the goal of starting contraction inducing drugs the next morning. Best case scenario we have a baby sometime Friday. Worst case he will be forcibly liberated by C-section sometime Saturday.

Thanks so much to everyone for all of your thoughts, prayers and presents for the little man so far. I have been so thankful for all of your kind and encouraging words over the past months!

ladytonks is in charge of updating here when the wee man arrives. So check your flists for updates on Friday night or Saturday morning. And of course we will try to get pics to you as soon as we can.

I will try to update again before Thursday night!

Good luck with the birth and we'll see you on the other side ;-)

Seriously though, I hope all goes well and relatively painlessly.

Well, that's a chance, anyway! I hope the induction is successful for you. I'll be having good thoughts for you and the wee (or not so wee) Puff!

Oh, that is wonderful! I do hope that all the myriad monitors and such don't bug you too much (man I was SO sick of them after trying to find a comfy position to lie in all night...i had to be induced too) Best of luck and lots of hugs!

I am hoping that I will be able to get more comfortable being able to sort of sit up with the hospital bed than I have been trying to sleep flat in my bed at home and that the monitors will not be too much of a distraction.

oh man! *SO EXCITED*

Sometimes the cervadil they give you can throw you into active labor. I'll be crossing my fingers for that.

*sends good labor vibes*

EEEEE!

How very exciting. Make sure you go out for a really nice dinner (or something) tomorrow, a date with just the two of you now, when it's easy. :D

I'll definitely be thinking of you!

Most excellent...

And one bit of advice, and then I will completely hush... I don't care what anyone else may tell you---once you are hooked up to the monitors and they can know what Puff is doing at all times---DRUGS are a very good thing!! Remember...you don't get extra bonus points for pain on this, OK?

Godspeed for a safe delivery for you and safe arrival of the wee one.

Thanks dear! I am well aware that induced labor can be much harder and that I may need the epidural to get through it. I promise I will ask for it if I feel like I need it, or my doc feel like I am getting to tired or worn out. Promise!!!!

My only concern about the drugs has ever been the Puff and I's ability to nurse as soon as possible. And I really don't want to be "doped up" for the first few hours of my boy's life. I am well aware that epidurals won't make me loopy :D I am totally keeping all of my pain relief options open.

Now that's what I like to see. A dedicated fangirl. :) I can make sure you have an ep to watch when you get home from the hospital. You just work on the rest. *smooches*

Good Luck! I hope you have an easy delivery.

Don't worry about Supernatural. I know of a great website that has links to all the episodes. We'll get you a link one way or another. You just concentrate on letting everyone take care of you in the hospital.

Good luck with everything! Hey if Puff gets here on Friday, we'll share a birthday! :) Although I'll be 27 that day, lol. I hope everything goes smoothly and mom and baby do really well. *sending all sorts of good thoughts and prayers your way.*

OOOOOOOO!!!! Am so excited for you! Hope I have not missed anything, as it is Friday already over here. Good luck with everything, and remember that drugs are there for a reason, if you really need 'em. Will be waiting fairly breathlessly for the good news - don't you dare forget to post the COMING Dana!!!!

This is Amy, AKA Scarlett71177 on Livejournal.com I'm contacting all of you in hopes that you'll join me on May 24 in wishing our friend Margaret67 a happy 40th birthday.



I've created a new journal and I'm hoping you'll all take a moment to comment to THIS post. We'll alert Margaret to the journal next week. Until then- let's keep it our little secret.



Thanks!!!
