Today did not go as planned...

So I get up on the table. The ultrasound tech tries to find a good spot of fluid in which to draw out while dealing with a tiny boy who won't stop moving and showing off. I sign the forms. They start to prep my belly. Nurse sticks her head in and says, "Lindsay, did you have your shot this morning?". I answer yes.
 Amnio was off at that point as no one told me not to have the shot today. So Monday, instead of having the baby, I will be doing the amnio. Delivery is set for Thursday morning now instead. Not what I was expecting, but not the worst thing. I did however get to see that my baby has a head FULL of hair which was waving around in the amniotic fluid. "Look at all of that hair!!", exclaimed the tech. His estimated weight was 6lbs8oz. I'm guessing he'll be a pound more by this time next week when he (fingers crossed) makes his debut.
 Everyone who sent me well wishes and were hoping and praying things would go well today, do you think you could just re-issue those Monday morning? I'm still nervous about it and I REALLY thought it would be over with today.
 Also, I decided again to try and stay awake when I deliver. I want to witness his birth. I don't want him to be alone when he comes. So, I hope I can be a big girl and do what I need to do. (The xanax that the doctor promised for early that morning will probably help with that possibilty)

Monday would have been nice seeing as how it is my 29th anniversary, but I'll take the 15th because that is my baby girl's 18th birthday! Either way, great date! =)
I always thought it was ironic that I had my last "tax deduction" on Tax Day. lol
Praying everything goes smoothly. Soon we'll be looking at pictures of a sweet baby boy. Yay!

Phew... glad you got to see his hair and he was in a dancing mood... Good wishes and prayers will continue until next thursday. I think it's a great day, considering it's my birthday as well. Would love to share that with your little boy. :)

All the best to you! xoxo

Oh I've got severe hair envy! Jessica's has only really just started sprouting now and she's 19 months.

Will certainly re-issue my well wishes. I hope you'll be able to stay awake to see your little boy when he arrives but try not to put yourself under too much pressure. Do what feels right for you xo
