Friday's appointment was a little tougher than all previous. He took almost the full half-hour to pass the ultrasound (he would always pass right away before). And he took almost an hour for the non-stress test. And the machine broke. And I had to see an NP I've never met. And there was only one doctor there that day. A little comedy of errors. I was grateful my parents were here to watch the kids and that in the end, baby was/is fine. I'm so happy to be done with these hour or two appointments twice/week!
Grateful we made it through Sunday when I wasn't feeling awesome, Sunday being the day Maelee died and it just being a bit more concerning for that reason. We made it! And I will never be pregnant another Sunday again.
Greg and I are a little apprehensive about a 1am induction tonight. Crazy hour to start birthing. We shall start out insane tired from the get-go. Whatever. Get me a baby alive and I'm game. Fairly certain we can say his birthday will be June 14, 2016!
We have about three names in consideration, with a handful of possible backseat contenders that could make it through. We may just have to wait to see him, which we have never done before. I feel super terrible that I don't just LOVE one name and feel ready to name baby. Sorry, boy. I'm sure you will grow into your name shortly after we decide.
I feel wildly different from any of the three babies before this little guy. And that's okay. I'm not as nervous, not as prepared, not as concerned about details. Some of that may end up less than ideal but overall, I think this must happen the more kiddos you have.
We will share more as we begin the labor process tonight!
