Birthday Eve

My miracle baby boy-

I am sitting here on the eve of your birth, trying to find words to express my love for you. Tomorrow, you and I will become to separate people. I have loved providing for you the past 9 months, but it is time for you to join the outside world. I promise, its nice out here too.

Daddy and I set out on our quest to become a family almost three years ago. You are what has been missing in our lives ever since that day. Tomorrow, you will fill that space, and our hearts will be full.

I love you so much and can not wait to meet you. Take it easy on me, kay?

Love, Mama

perfectly stated!

I've had two inductions and here are my experiences:

The first time, my water was broken immediately since I was dilated to 2cm and -1 station. The Pitocin induced contractions were rough and I got an epidural about 2 hours later at 3cm, delivered after 12 hours of labor total.

Second time, my water wasn't broken right away even though I was 2cm because baby was too high. Pitocin was started and about 4 hours into it, I was kinda uncomfortable so she checked me and I was still 2cm. Got the epidural and my water was broken, had the baby about 4 hours after that.

Hoping all goes well tomorrow...whatever the details and the outcome, I am praying for a healthy labor...healthy mom...healthy baby...

this is lovely...brought a tear to my eye...my babe was 7 months this week, it feels like such a long time ago that I was in your shoes, good luck...those first few days/weeks are oh so hard, but oh so incredibly amazing and they will be gone in a flash (even though those sleepless nights will seem to go on forever at the time!).
