big news x 2

We are scheduled for induction for 5am on Thursday. I'm excited. I'm terrified. I'm ready.

There's a big difference between knowing you're going to go into labor any time in the next couple of weeks, and knowing it's happening at a specific time.

I wanted to go into labor naturally. I'm going to have to work through the disappointment, but I know we're making the right decision. The placenta is starting to deteriorate, so it's not just a baby size issue, it's a safety issue. I want to go into labor naturally, but I also want a healthy baby. That's top on my list of priorities.

Our nursery is done! Look!

In other news, I just found out that I my claim in a class action lawsuit against the school where I got my second degree has been approved. I will be getting up to my full tuition reimbursed, depending on the number of claimants. There is a set amount of settlement money in escrow, so I will be getting something for sure. The amount just depends on how many ways they have to divide it.
It's been a good day for news!

You're definitely making the right decision as far as the induction goes. Having a healthy baby is a top priority.

Good luck honey.

The first time, I had same thing - deteriorating placenta - and was willing to do what I needed to do to avoid anything bad happening to the baby (my OB said it could rupture before I knew it, it'd be too late) so I did the same thing on a thursday.

I will have to say an induction without being ready (before real labor starts) is the hardest thing I ever went through, but it's obviously possible.

Good luck!!!
