Change of Plans

I had my 37 week appointment on Tuesday. It went well, with the baby still looking good, and passing her NST's. I am now 2cm dialated, so that's a good start for inducing. When I asked about my induction, and when I was supposed to be at the hospital though, we discovered a slight problem. The idiot who was supposed to actually schedule me never did. So now MY Dr. is booked for Wednesday the 7th, and there is no room for me. After a HUGE runaround (not worth typing it all out) I am not schediled to be induced Monday the 5th instead. MONDAY.

My in-laws have decided to stick with their plan of coming the 7th, which is good because I found out that the hospital stay up here is 2 days instead of the 24 hours after the birth that we stayed in SC when the boys were born. This 2 days thing REALLY bugs me, but I guess there isn't much I can do about it. I guess the worst part is the idea of leaving Evan that long. I have NEVER left him for longer than a couple of hours, and usually then, he was with dh, so he still had a parent with him. I know my mom will take excellent care of him, and they will have a blast (and don't forget how spoiled he will be!) but I am still really freaked out about being away from him.

Mom comes tomorrow. She decided to come a little early so we can get any of the last minute laundry etc. done, and so Evan can get used to her being here. (dh works over the weekend anyway, so it will be nice to have mom around to help)

The countdown is on.......
