Ok, so I am set to have the c section tomorrow (Friday) at
7:30am. I am still very nervous. I hate having surgery.
And I hated the epidural from the last c section.

PLEASE send good thoughts and prayers my way!!!
Pray that I have a safe surgery, that the baby is healthy,
and that I have a quick and easy recovery!

I'll be in the hospital til Monday, but at least they have wi-fi
so I can post updates from my laptop. And at least they have
awesome food, so I won't be starving!

I hope some of you others will be having your babies tomorrow
too!!!!!!!!

You're in our thoughts and prayers - how exciting that you get to meet your baby tomorrow!!! Don't forget to talk to her tonight and remind her that tomorrow is her birthday so she can be ready. I'm sure you'll have a wonderful speedy recovery - can't wait to hear how it all goes!

Thanks everyone! I'm starting to get more and more nervous
as the day goes on, so I'm needing those prayers!!!

Just got back from wal mart and got a few things for the hospital.
I needed a nightgown and something comfortable to be able to
nurse in. They had really cute swimsuit terry-cloth coverups that
have a slit in the front that will be so easy to nurse the baby in.
And it was cute and I can wear it again. Yay me!

And I went and got a pedicure. I needed it. That poor woman working
on me feet. Gosh! I felt so sorry for her. My feet were BAAAD!!!
They look good now!

And YES...I'm serious about the food at the hospital. It is good!
They give you a room service menu and you get to order whenever
and whatever you want. This hospital is like being in a hotel. And the
nurses were really cool. They totally followed my birth plan with
Nate. With babygirl, I won't have to be stressing about that. I KNOW
they will follow it. And on our last night there last year with Nate, they
brought me and my husband a candle lit steak dinner. Which was really
good. And they came in and gave me a massage too. This hospital is
really good. It is the 2nd best thing to having the babygirl at
my home. So I'm not really stressing
about the hospital stay, just the c section and epidural.

Ok......I'm off to pack and charge my digital camera batteries!!!

Much love to you all!!!!!
