Well, it's finally come down to induction. I'm measuring ahead of schedule and have been since 32 weeks. My doctor finally decided that our dates were off by a week or so. As of Tuesday, I'm measuring at over 40 weeks and I'm dialated to two centimeters.

Next Tuesday will be my final appointment to get me prepared for induction. At 7:00am Wednesday morning I'll be admitted to the hospital to begin labor.

I'm so nervous, excited and scared right now. Everything will be final by next week. I'm happy that I'm able to share this news with you all, and I can't thank you enough for being supportive and kind to me throughout my entire pregnancy. I promise I will come back after she's born and tell you how it all went, hopefully I'll have a couple of pictures to share.

Right now, I'm just getting everything ready for her. Her bed, bath, clothes, recieving blankets..everything is in place and just waiting for her. As if it hadn't been already, of course. However, now is the time for me to perfect it all, move things around until they're in just the right spot.. I know it probably won't matter once it's all said and done, but I am just so anxious I can't help myself..even though I can barely walk or even stand at this point.

Thanks for being there, once again!

Smiling here.

No worries. You hold the baby and magickally, mother instinct appears.

and yanno? I lied, but it's like you can't NOT hold her.

I so envy you.

They stare so intent and innocent in your eyes while feeding. and rocking. and singing. ahhhhhhhhhhh...sigh

Hand on your tummy, and I wish I could hold hands with your mom too (we'd be impossible)

*beaming at you*

I'll bet your mom has cocao buttered your belly to margarine by now...

You are going to learn to cry some happy tears, m'friend.

Meg~

Leah and I were just talking about you last night, wondering what was going on.

2 cm?  I bet you go in before your next appointment!  

Good luck!! If you need anything...we are here.

So many moms in here pacing the blue, waiting...smiling...remembering.
Relax, let the day come as it will, with a good supervising doctor. Don't forget to breathe, breathe, breathe

Even though I've not responded to any of your updates on you and baby, I have kept up with you.
May I say this will be one of the most rewarding times in your life. My prayers go with you and your daughter. When they place her in your arms you will over flow with a love that you never knew capable.
God Bless

Meg, Karen really nailed it (the feeling) - you are about to feel something incredible happen to you and your body in birth and bonding, and the happy tears that come with it will never be forgotten.  Becoming a Mother was the most life changing experience of my life, and after that, a Grandmother.  As a Grandmother I know your mother will change that day for sure in ways she never thought possible, as I know I sure did.           

I am inclined to go with Susan and wonder if you will even make it until induction day, so pack that bag lady, as you may indeed be spending the weekend in O.R.


Good luck and I can not wait to welcome Mz. Freyja into our world.  Blessings and Glory be!


I loved reading about this Nordic name and got the art from the net of course.  Here is a link to what the name Freya, or Freyja stands for, and it is very interesting.

All I can tell you Meg, is that once that lil' face stares back at you and you hold that child in your arms, you know you will never ever be alone in this world again, and that, m'friend, is THE greatest blessing.

Good Luck to you . . .

Well dear girl life doesn't get better than this. What a delight. I wish much joy and peace. Bless you and we'll keep the light on for you. Congrats...

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

You make me remember ... my daughter arrived just one hour before the fixed time for induction! Wishing you well. As I have recently become a grandmother I am still filled with awe and I could never stop looking at that little miracle and this will happen to you too ....
God bless you both.
Love, Margherita

Hee! I have that website in my favorites. Freyja is such a wonderful name, in my heart.

Raph - YOU HURRY UP! YOUUUUU! I think you were one of the first people I told, and that was when I was only 5 weeks pregnant. Hope you're healthy! Pictures soon, promise.

Oh, oooh, ooooh, ooooooh, I can't wait!

What a wonderous experience, childbirth.  I envy you, remembering my own and the total love that I felt.  I know all will be fine for you.
