Four years ago today I had a different blog, a different life, and no kids… yet. It didn’t take long for all of that to change. This week’s Friday Flashback, created in an effort to breathe new life into my favorite posts from my archives, spans both time, blogs, and blogging platforms. This post was originally published in May 2005 on my old blog where you can see my humble beginnings as a blogger, a writer, and a knitter!
Contrary to what everyone thought, I actually accomplished everything that I said I would. I worked up to my due date, worked through the two events that took place on my due date weekend, finished teaching both of my religious school classes… unbelievable. And now? Mark’s last final is in three hours and it’s looking like we are going to make it through that too! But not much further!
I’m feeling crampy and sore, the only question is whether I’ll go into full blown labor on my own or whether I’ll make it to my doctor’s appointment tomorrow. At 11 in the morning they are inserting the Prostaglandin Gel in the hopes of ripening my cervix some more. If that doesn’t start labor we go in on Wednesday for the Pitocin drip… One way or another we’re having a baby sometime before Thursday.
Pretty terrifying on the whole. This is my first day off of work and I have to say that it’s making it more and more real by the minute. Everyone seems so sure that I’m going to be great at this whole motherhood thing. But I don’t know. I’m heading into foreign territory and I don’t know what to expect. I don’t do so good with the whole unknown thing. So cross your fingers for me. I’m going to need all the help I can get.
See you all on the other side….
