Erev C-Section

In a mere 12 hours, I'm scheduled for a c-section.

I spent all day today filing baby stuff, assorted doctor's notes and paraphernalia, and nesting at home with Mr. L.

People called or emailed all weekend to wish us luck.

I got a little teary tonight. What if something goes wrong? This is the last night the Mister and I will be just two. What if I ate too much chocolate, and therefore too much caffeine, throughout this pregnancy and it affects the baby's mental state?

(I was going to write up a post about everything I've learned being pregnant and type 1 and dealing with infertility, but didn't get around to it. It'll come in the future.)

And yet, coming home on Friday from my last day of work, I allowed myself to think "What if everything is really wonderful and the baby is perfect and everything is really great?"

It made me really happy and teary in a good way.

We likely won't have any access to a laptop in the hospital, and while we have a big email list of people to announce our news to (via a friend of Mr. L's) tomorrow, I just don't know when I'll get to update again. A few of you are on the big email list, so you may know our news before I can update here. If Mr. L leaves the hospital for a quick visit home midweek, I may ask him to update things.

In any case, I'll update when I can. Stay tuned.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you enter a new part of this exciting, joyous (and sometimes nerve wracking:)) journey. I mostly lurk on here, and it's been great to read about at type 1 who is going through a pregnancy as it happens. Celebrate the moment you welcome your new baby into this world, and know you have a lot of people thinking good thoughts for you, your baby and your husband.
