Finally, exciting news! We got to schedule our c-section for December 21st at my doctor's visit. It is technically two days before I am 39 weeks but the doctor didn't see a problem with it. I wanted to be out of the hospital in time to spend Christmas with my 18 month old son Michael. I know that he is going to love opening presents!
I'm really starting to feel pregnant now and it is a struggle to get out of bed most mornings. I told my boss that my last day is going to be December 16th, the Friday before my c-section. I also let him know that I would probably be out 8-12 weeks with Gwendolyn, instead of the 6 weeks I took with Michael.
This will probably be my last pregnancy, barring any accidents or a drastic change in financial circumstances, and I want to spend the time with Gwen and Michael both before having to get back into the grind of things. Only 8 weeks left!
