I went for a check-up with dr Grassie, and all looks good for an induction. I'm going to book into hospital tonight at 10pm, they start the drip medication at 11pm, then I sleep a while, then they do the gel medication at about 4am. The anaesthetist will come do the epidural at 6am. And baby Ella should arrive somewhere between 10am and 12pm! Wow!! Sounds like a brilliant plan, I do hope all goes smoothly.
Tomorrow this time I could be holding my baby girl! ♥
Can't wait for Mia to meet her baby sister, wow.
I prepared a present for Mia, from me, for her to receive tomorrow morning, when she wakes up and I'm not here. I wrote her a special card, and did a voice recording of what I wrote, so that when she opens the present, my mom-in-law can show her the card and play the voice recording back to her.
Here's the letter:
My darling Mia,
Mommy is in hospital now, so that your baby sister Ella can be born. How exciting! I can’t wait for you to come visit us at the hospital and meet your sister.
Mommy is missing you so much and thinking about you all the time. I love you with my whole heart, and I am so proud of you. You are going to be such a wonderful big sister! I know you’re going to be my helper girl, and a good girl, and a gentle, caring, sharing sister.
I can’t wait to come home again, so that we can all snuggle together – you, me, pappa, and baby Ella!
I’m such a lucky mommy, to have two special girls to hug and kiss and love.
Thank you for being my big special!
I love you to the moon and back.Mommy
And here's my very last bump piccie - 39 weeks today!
I've loved and savoured the miracle of pregnancy - now it's time for the miracle and blessing of birth and babyhood!
