I sit here, 2.5 hours away from being at the hospital to be induced. I can't believe the time is finally here. It has been the longest journey ever....but it has gone by so fast at the same time. I am filled with every emotion imaginable. I'm excited, happy, scared, nervous, anxious. I just want to cry! I can't believe it's finally happening but I'm scared out of my mind for labor and for all that follows afterwards. I know it's all going to be ok...and I'm hoping the scary feelings go away once we get to see his face!
If all goes as planned, he will be born tomorrow 6/27, which is quite a fitting date if you ask me. 6/27/11 was the day I found out I was pregnant for the first time. I remember being so shocked yet so happy that day. The months that followed were a whirlwind...filled with anxiousness, happiness and finally grief. Our first pregnancy had ended in miscarriage on 8/8. Followed on 11/18 by another miscarriage. Then months of infertility and finally, surgery, then fertility drugs. I never imagined that I would be having a baby on the same day (two years later) that had originally brought me so much happiness.
It's been a long journey...and at times, a very sad one. But ultimately one that is going to have a happy ending! There have been so many moments where I never imagined I would be saying that. I thought it was never going to happen for us. But with a lot of persistence and faith, it's actually going to happen!
The next time I post, I am going to be somebody's mom =)
