Well in about 9 hours I will be a mother to a little girl. I am a little nervous but mostly excited. I spent Friday night in the hospital because I have officially developed preeclampsia. The doctor was concerned about this and wanted to monitor me overnight. Things looked better on Saturday so he gave me the option of having Lucy or waiting a couple of more weeks. Jeff and I decided to wait.
Today, however, I went for a visit and my blood pressure was high. My doctor came into the room and said, "Pretty please can I deliver your baby in the morning?" How can you resist that? He said there was just no reason to delay the delivery any more. On Saturday he didn't have much of opinion. Today, he felt very strongly about delivering our daughter. So we of course agreed. We're scrambling around the house packing bags, washing baby clothes in Dreft, and just trying to mentally prepare for a baby in the morning. I can't wait to meet her.
