light at the end of the tunnel

there is an end in sight!

I had my 39 week prenatal appointment today and I finally got a good, kindhearted Dr. who has swooped in and saved the day. This is the first Dr. that I have had since I was initially transferred from one hospital to another that I have actually liked, or better yet who actually seemed to care about me, my condition that I have and actually listened/seemed interested in what I had to say, my last few appointments were horrible experiences so it was nice to finally get some answers.

Of course he didn't stand a chance as I practically burst into tears when he asked how I was coping/holding up and I may have over exaggerated my SVT symptoms (sort of, but not really as I have been having more "episodes") but it's all for a good reason AND better yet I have already started the process on my own (sort of). My cervix is 2 cm dilated and has started to soften so really I could go into labour on my own this weekend but if I don't I'm scheduled to be induced on Monday!!!

YAY!!

Thank god I won't have to go past my due date, or even until 42 weeks

thank you
Thank You
THANK YOU!

now if you are really there god, please get the wheels turning and tell my baby to come out this weekend as that super nice Dr. (who I could've kissed) is on call this weekend and it would be really great if I could have him deliver my baby...pretty please??

so the end is near my friends ~ 3 more (possible) days!

I am so stoked, Flea! I am just so excited for you! I'll be thinking of you all weekend and hoping for the outcome you want! I am sending you tons of hugs and love from cold & wet BC, Flea! I am just so damned proud of you and can't wait to see your little girl, and of course hear all about your birth experience. But, I fully realize you are going to be exhausted, overwhelmed, and sore, and blissed out, so I don't expect an immediate update - come back to blogging when you are ready to! But I am thinking about you and your family all the same and wishing you all the very best! Woo-hoo!!!!!!

Hey Flea! (Dec. 13.) Just wanted to stop by and say that I'm thinking about you all and hoping everything is going well for you and the new baby! NO PRESSURE TO COME BACK TO BLOGGING, OK? I only want to let you know you are in my thoughts!
