After 38+ weeks, lots of doctor appointments, tons of worry-- and a-okay pressures and pee, I have a date. I am quite amazed that I have made it almost 39 weeks without so much as a single major blood pressure spike, very, very minimal swelling, and relatively no headaches. Both of my previous pregnancies were overwhelming with those issues, and here I am, pregnant with our first boy, and no issues to speak of (well, I did have one bp spike a while ago that caused me to panic, but it's been fine ever since).
I can't believe it's here. Really. After three LONG years, waiting for a baby, I will be holding a living, breathing baby boy (I am confident of that).
Saturday at 7 a.m. I go in for a scheduled induction-- and hopefully I will be holding Finnegan Saturday evening. I will be 39 weeks.
