Hospital Bound

February 7, 2013 at 9:40 AM 22 comments

Today marks the most momentous day of both Graham and my lives.  We have known for 39 weeks this day was coming and for about a week that this specific date would be here, yet it still feels surreal.  Baby Girl is breached and happy as a clam head up.  Today, I have a scheduled c-section to meet our little one that we have been so eager to have in our lives.

I can’t in any way describe the emotions that we are feeling.  We pray that all will go smoothly and that baby and I will be healthy.  I have felt massively blessed to have had the past nine plus months nurturing, caring for and bonding with the little one.  And now, the time has arrived to hold her in our arms and we can’t get over how lucky we are.

I will be reporting back as soon as I am able to with an update on her arrival and her real, non BGB, initials.  I’ll give you a hint…it still ends with B. 🙂
