Ready to have this baby!
I went to the Dr. today and we set the date to have baby Addison! Unless mother nature kicks in sooner (which feels very possible) Miss Addison will be born on Tuesday, March 11th. I know some people don't like the idea of inducing labor but I'm here to tell you that, for me, it is nice to have a plan, that and I seem to have lost three pounds since my appointment last week which isn't too uncommon but it worries me a little so the sooner she gets here the better! It makes me feel comfortable and prepared and I'm happy to know ahead of time. No broken water in the grocery store, no waiting for my husband to rush home from work, no speeding the 30 minutes to the hospital, no birthing my baby in the backseat. I'm content to wake up on Tuesday morning, take a nice warm shower, shave my legs, dry & comb my hair, load up Michael Anne, call Grandmas & Grandpas, and calmly drive to the hospital where my room, looking out at Mt. Timpanogos, has been prearranged and the anesthesiologist is there waiting with epidural in hand. This may not be the a-la-natural way to go but it suits me fine and I'm pretty excited about it! I guess I figure the next 20 years will be a continual lesson in spontaneity, surprises, and anxieties in child rearing so why not start it out peacefully, for me anyways. However a child is born it is a wonderful event and I can't wait for our little Addison to join us! We'll let you know how things go and will post pictures as soon as we can.
