I don’t know what you have been doing all weekend but all I have been thinking about is tomorrow.
Tomorrow I become a parent.
The hubs and I checked into the hospital at 5pm tonight, where I’ll be monitored and starting my induction Monday morning…where we will emerge sometime that day (if all goes well) as a family of three.
To say I am nervous, is an understatement. I had sweaty palms signing into registration, questioning my answers to commonly known items such as gender and address. I am nervous.
But I’m so excited, too.
Excited to be on the other end of delivery and to shout out my two-cents about the dos and do nots of labor and delivery. To help new moms with their hospital packing list, and well, to have that baby boy in my arms.
I cannot wait to see what he looks like. How I feel after he is here. How I’ll be an emotional wreck until he’s 90… You know, the usual.
After tonight I know nothing will be the same, but I’m so excited to get this new life underway. I’ll keep you posted!
I am so excited for you and Paul and can feel your excitement too. It will all be okay Sarah—God is watching over you—just keep remembering that—-you will fall in love with that little guy and wonder how you ever lived without him. He will bring you such joy every day. I have no doubt you and Paul will be fantastic parents—it will all come natural, believe me. Take advantage of Julie being there to help you , get your rest, and you’ll be the best Mother & Father—never doubt it. I can’t wait to get that call or notice—July 29th will always be a special day!!! Wait till you hold him in your arms—-truly a miracle. love you much, Grams Johnson
Good luck Sarah!!! I’ll be thinking about you and Paul today, can’t wait to hear how it goes and see pictures!!
