So....unless he decides to make an early appearance (and judging from my other two this is highly unlikely) Milo will be born via c-section on January 13, 2010! I was a little disappointed because I was hoping for an earlier date. I could have gone as early as the 8th but I guess I have to take what I can get. I was wishing for earlier because obviously it's less time I have to be pregnant, and also because I was hoping for a least a week between his birthday and Jackson's. Since Jackson's is January 19th it means I'll only have three days once I'm home to get ready for big #6! I'm hoping to ease the pressure (and more importantly make sure his special day doesn't get lost in the shuffle) by wrapping all his gifts when I do Christmas as well as figuring out what his theme is going to be and purchasing supplies.
I find myself getting more and more excited to meet Milo and get some newborn snuggles in. :) Since this will more than likely be my last baby I'm going to enjoy every minute! Oh yeah - let me tell you about today - I'm sure you other mothers may be able to relate. I went to the OB today b/c I was having some back pain and thought I might have a UTI. About an hour before I left was suddenly hit by a wave of panic. What if something happens and I have to stay? I had piles of laundry waiting to be washed, not a thing packed for the hospital, all the baby's clothe still in bins from the attic, unwashed. Totally unprepared! Needless to say I spent that hour frantically packing a "just in case" bag, and trying to get a couple loads washed , dried, and put away. Since I have returned (with nothing more than a prescription for antibiotics thank goodness) I have done nothing but laundry and organizing. My mother is spending the three days I'll be in the hospital here with the boys so I have to have the house ready to go. Anyway, crisis averted :) Of course now he'll remain in place until the 13th - but better to be safe than sorry - right?
P.S. Side note - on the c-section date I have to call the hospital at 4am and be there to check in at 5am! Seriously? Was 7am just too late? I'm tired just thinking about it...
