Off to Induction

I came home and managed to sleep a little and feel like a new person. A lot more optimistic, a lot more hopeful. Thank you for your e-mails and your comments, they gave me comfort and reminded me its normal to feel this way and that I will get through this. I feel incredibly blessed to be here. There was a time I could not watch a TV scene showing a L&D room without bursting into tears. There was time a hospital was not a place of hope. No matter how nervous I may feel, no matter how many things don't go according to plan- if Sunflower is okay- there is truly nothing else that holds a candle to that ultimate goal. I'm going to do the best I can, that's all I can do.

I'm going in tonight at 7pm and will be induced Friday morning. Please keep me and Sunflower in your prayers. Many of you held my hand as I recovered from my first miscarriage, and celebrated then cried with me when I lost my second. You've never laughed at my fears with this pregnancy and your support has kept me buoyed. Thank you.

See you on the other side!

  4. Hey this is Astrid, sorry for the 'anonymity' I think that's the best attitude to have going in. And it helps to know that whatever else happens, you will have little sunflower when it's over. And it's a pretty short trip in the grand scheme of things, the trip through L&D. Someone once said to me, instead of 'see you on the other side,' they said "See you in the sunshine." I guess because he meant he'd see me next when things would be better. I've often thought of that for myself and my close friends and family, I'd say it to people before finals or the bar exam or some other difficult episode, things like that. But it has a whole new and appropriate meaning for you and sunflower. So I'll see you in the sunshine.

  19. Good luck hunny, I look forwards to reading sunflower is here although have to admit to being somewhat jealous. Little Tony was due on the 4th and there is no sign of him coming anytime soon. 2nd sweep next wednesday before they will even consider inducing me, so looks like your baby will meet the world first. Hope it all goes great for you xxx
