Uh oh. Item for Sarah’s to-do list: Write a birth plan.
I’m sure she’ll have it done before others are done reading this post. I’m finding myself anxious about the birth (and, with that not available at the moment, everything else in my life), but Sarah is about to teeter over the edge. When Sarah is anxious she goes into Productive Mode. The rest of us stand back and wait for her to return to us. We might need to start sedating her sometime early next week. Anyone know of a good mild sedative? I can’t guarantee she’s going to eat anything, so the sedative would probably have to be administered by some sort of dart as she runs by.
Poor Geri must be counting the minutes. She has had some bad nights of sleep, getting up every 30 minutes to answer natures call. That must be particularly torturous because dreaming is her only chance at a change in scenery. She’s in bed the rest of the time. We found out that Sunday Geri had enough contractions she actually packed a bag, but as she got up to go to the hospital they slowed down again. Wishful thinking perhaps.
The c-section is scheduled for 9:ooam on April 18th. We’ll see . . .
