It’s crazy how my posts have taken such a turn…from counting down the months waiting for a match, to counting down the days until the baby is here!
Last week was the anatomy scan (which was quite the ordeal, in and of itself), and we were THRILLED to hear that the baby was doing very well, growing on schedule and looking perfect. Our expecting mother also told us that the baby is a GIRL!!! We are absolutely THRILLED to welcome a daughter into our family!
Our expecting mother is also doing well, but found out that she has a condition that could result in the need for a C-section instead of a vaginal birth. We’re hoping things clear up and she is able to continue with the vaginal birth, but as long as she’s healthy and happy with the care she’s receiving, we’re completely fine with however this turns out. She’s such a sweet and caring person, and we really care about how she’s doing and making sure she’s feeling happy and well taken care of.
We’re looking to make a visit to see her soon, hopefully mid-march. She’d like to do a walk-through at the hospital with us, so that we can see where she’ll give birth and meet some of the staff. In addition, she’s also asked that I be with her in the delivery room, which means a lot to me. I was clear with her that if she changes her mind, it’s COMPLETELY ok, and I don’t want her to feel pressured to have me in there. For now, that’s the plan, but I fully recognize that could change in an instant and just plan to play it by ear.
So…we’re 133 days (give or take) away from being parents. It’s a crazy feeling, but we’re so excited!
