I have been trying to write this entry all day, but I have been so busy. It's amazing how busy one can be while on bedrest in a hospital! :) But this morning was very exciting and we have had news to share with everyone. We finally have a date for the c-section! On December 12, 2008 at 4:00pm, Liv and Charlie should be on their way into the world! It is so wonderful to see the light at the end of the tunnel. To know that things are going to be okay. On 12/12 I will be 34 weeks and 1 day, putting us in the safe zone. There is even a small chance that the babies could come home when I do.
To be honest, I hope that they are in the NICU for a little bit. It just feels safer to me. And by that point I will have been on bedrest for 10 weeks, which means the nursery just isn't ready to be inhabited yet! It would be wonderful to have the time to get those things in order and have some time to rest up and heal from the c-section. Then when the babies finally come home, we will be better prepared to care for them there.
And then we have to make sure we have all of the immediate essentials ready to go when they do get home. Carseats, bedding, diapers, wipes. You get the idea. I might have to send Mom on a shopping run if they don't end up in the NICU. :)Somehow I don't think she will mind too much! Mostly we are just so excited. I am hoping these last couple weeks won't drag by too much. I don't think I can stand the anticipation!
