We've got one and a half days of normalcy left around here and then our lives will be turned upside down! I got the word from the doctor yesterday that I'll be having a c-section on Friday. The little one is breech and making no effort to flip. While a c-section is not how I pictured this delivery, I just want her to be safe and healthy. I'm a ball of nerves thinking about exactly what happens after the delivery. Do I get to hold her right away? If not can my sweetie hold her the whole time I'm getting stitched up? Is she gonna be swept away to the nursery and I won't see her again until I'm in the recovery room? Will she even be allowed in the recovery room? And most importantly, are they going to give her formula out of a bottle? I'm really gung ho about breastfeeding and I know that just one bottle feeding can really mess the whole thing up. I guess I'll know everything soon enough. In the meantime I can't seem to sleep. I think it's just nerves and anxiety. I tried really hard last night to not think about anything and it seemed to help. I think I upped my total nights sleep from 4 hours to 6.
Of course there are a million things I want to do before she gets here and a whole house that could use cleaning, but I can't seem to bring myself to do much. I really wanted to get that olympic goal sweater blocked and seamed. I managed to get half of it pinned out on my new knitter's blocks 2 days ago but I don't have an empty spray bottle so I can wet it down. I know it's just a trip to the store, but I haven't gotten around to it.
So, there will probably be a bit of a blogging hiatus. Not only will I have a new person I'll be responsible for and a new life to adjust to, but we're also sending out our monitor to get fixed and have no idea how long it will take. I've got a backup computer, but I don't want to load pictures onto it and then have to go through transferring them when we get the monitor back. So, sorry, but everyone is just gonna have to wait a little bit for pictures of the little one.
