22 April ~ Update & New Photos

Well, I went to the dr yesterday and baby is still holding tight with no progress. Due to their company policy, I've been scheduled for inducement on the 29th which is the last date they will allow me to hold out for. I really was ok with this... UNTIL they called back yesterday to confirm everything. During our appt, my doctor had said that I was definitely one of the patients that needed to go in the night beforehand to do the cervix ripener since I hadn't dilated very much... and that this would really help me and possibly put me into labor without the pitocin. Not to mention that a lot of the c-section business comes from inductions where the cervix was forced to contract without proper "ripening" first. So I was like "Game On" for the night beforehand stuff! Well, a couple of hours later, the message I received from our nurse said they'd confirmed the 29th date with the hospital but that I was on the waiting list for the night before procedure. Waiting list?!?!? So I called back (calmly but inside I was pretty upset) and asked isn't it important that I do the night before procedure (given that this is what my dr had said not 2 hours before)... the nurse started to fumble and said that after consideration they didn't think it was that important and that they had to go with what the hospital could accommodate. Ok- so seriously, this is one of the things that I have a hard time with about the inducement thing, the hospital and insurance thing, etc... it's not like I'm setting up an appt for a sono. We're talking about having a baby! It should be my choice. And the hospital should follow what the doctor suggests and not what is convenient for them. So I feel like I'm sitting B-team on the bench for the playoff game. (Can you believe I just used a sports analogy... must be the boy inside). Anyway, I'm still in limbo about what they're going to do and when... until then, I'm praying he just comes on his own and we never have to even worry about it. I'm so sorry.... I feel like lately all I do is complain about him not being here. I guess when I write these posts, it's kind of therapeutic and I use it as my outlet. Thanks for the negative indulgence.

On to a MUCH happier note.... my sweet photographer friend, Alyssa, brought me the CDs from our family maternity session and those from Sailer's "Turning 2" session. I just LOVE them, and they make me so happy!!! Here are some of my faves that weren't in the peek from the Maternity session:














And then, Miss. S "Turning 2 years old"....
