She's coming

You guys, do I have a story for you. It's been CRAZY DAYS since I lasted updated you here, and I was all set to come home and write a nice juicy update.

But then this little girl, with her usual left-field, centre-of-attention antics, had other ideas. We met with our fetal medicine doc and our OB today and discovered from today's growth scan that little seedling's development has dramatically curtailed over the last few weeks. She'll now be better out than in, and so it's time.

Let's admit you tonight and do the c-section tomorrow, said Dr B.

H and I stared. (Stupid, I know; this is after all the moment literally everything has been building toward.)

I don't have adequate words. She's small and we're of course worried about how she'll fare with surgery (which will probably happen over the weekend) and NICU, etc. We're also crazy insane exited and overwhelmed at the thought of finally holding her and looking into that beautiful little face, discovering what colour that mop of hair is.

Send good vibes guys. And we'll see you on the other side.

  13. Exciting! And scary, too. She will do great. She is obviously a fighter. The NICU nurses are awesome. They will take good care of seedling. It's an overwhelming place, for sure, but you will get through it. Good luck! I'll be sending good vibes across the ocean.
