Thursday, January 22
Katrina’s due date was Monday and it came and went with no life-changing events! Our Dr. wants to induce Katrina on thursday so we will be going to the hospital @ 7:30 to get things rolling. Our life is about to change. 19 hours left to ourselves, from now on we will be 3 instead of 2.
Wednesday Doctor Visit
We had an 8:30 appt this morning. I like getting up earlier, but I also like sleeping in. I’m starting to feel like the day is wasted if I don’t get up by 9:00 but it’s hard sometimes!
Anyway, Katrina is now 3 centimeters! This coming monday is her due date so I guess our little girl could come at any time. The Doc asked us if we wanted to induce – we said no because we want the birth to be as natural as possible. So we will see what happens – if she doesn’t go into labor by monday then we will schedule her to be induced next week, until then we are waiting………
We have 6 days until our little girl is born! Katrina is very uncomfortable these days and is ready to get this baby out! My friend Nate used to say “Let’s make like a baby and head on out” when we were about to go somewhere. It’s a funny saying but in 6 days it will become not just a saying, it will be reality.
I have been asking friends of mine for advice on being a new father and I have heard many different things. The most recent advice comes from my friend Matt who says I will have to practice patience in a whole new way. I can only imagine that right now but I know its true when I watch Matt with his daughter Autumn or Nelson with Tylan & Luke.
The webster’s definition for patience: : bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint2: manifesting forbearance under provocation or strain3:not hasty or impetuous4: steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity5 a: able or willing to bear
I hope I can live up to this definition, one minute at a time I guess.
