Some Unexpected News

Jeff and I went to our 9 month appt on Thursday to find out that Baby Girl BH needs to come early. Although the amount of amnio fluid present is good and her heartbeat is strong, she is very small. We find out on Tuesday afternoon if I'll go to the hospital on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning to get induced. As you can imagine, this came as a pretty significant surprise. At first it was a little scary, but we are confident that our doctor has the best in mind for us and our little girl.

So...we thought we had 4 weeks to prepare. Turns out we have had 5 days to get all of the final prepartions completed. Needless to say, we have been wildly busy! We have...
  • Finished hanging things in the baby's room
  • Lined up the dog sitter
  • Grocery shopped
  • Cooked meals to freeze
  • Packed for the hospital
  • Finished the laundry
  • Changed the sheets on all the beds
  • Got caught up on bills
  • Got Jeff's car cleaned and installed the car seat
  • Set up the pack-n-play
  • Introduced the dogs to a fake baby, in hopes of getting them a little acclimated
Most of our list is complete. We still have a few things to do, including a little bit of cleaning, but things are looking good. Especially considering the unexpected news and shortened timeline.

We'll do our best to keep everyone posted on Baby Girl BH's arrival.
