Today, Michael and I went in for my 36 week checkup. Everything went really well. I don't have to take any extra meds for the strep test that I took last week. Thank goodness!! Next week, I will be checked to see how far dilated I am. IF I am dilated enough at 38 weeks, I will be induced at 39! Sigh. I know it's not like that's massively early or anything, but any kind of early at this point feels like a sigh of relief. But, I don't want to get my hopes up too high. Wow! That would be two weeks from this Thursday. I'm really hoping that I will be able to be induced though. When we went to the hospital several weeks ago, I was already a little over 1cm dilated, so I'm hoping that something more has been going on in there. But then again, I think Davis is just as stubborn as his mama, so I'm thinking that he's changing his mind about coming out. We'll see! After my appointment today, I actually started to freak out a little bit. Crying in the car. Crying when we got home. I played music for Davis while sitting in his room today and a flood of thoughts came rushing in. I just started balling. It's like the closer that it gets to his arrival, the more freaked out I am becoming. And I mean, freaked out. Everything from-can we do this financially? I am going to be staying at home and not working. Then the other end of the spectrum of-Can I actually do this!? I feel like I usually deal with change quite well, but I can say that I've never had this much of a huge change in my life before. I just keep reminding myself that Michael and I have a phenomenal relationship and we have gotten through so much together. We can do this. In a little less than three weeks, I could be at home with my baby boy. I'm so excited and overjoyed to be a mom. Always An Adventure!
