Hello little one! You are such a drama queen. Not even out yet and given your daddy and mummy so much drama.
Last week started all good and quiet. But then the speed train ride. During checkup on Thursday, doctor said you were measuring small and advice us to go in for a sonogram. So we did. After the sonogram, doctor look at the results and gave us 3 options: to induce and delivery you that day, check in to hospital to go on drip or go home and load up on fluid. You were only 6%, a huge drop from already being small at 30% and the amniotic fluid that keeps you safe was at a low of 5.7% only. It's was pretty scary for mummy. We did not expect you for another 3 weeks and we hope our decision to wait will not bring any harm to you. Over the weekend, mummy ate and drank so much. All hoping that the nutrients will go to you. After sonogram on Monday morning, mummy did a little happy dance inside when the doctor said that the fluid level has gone up to 6%. Yay! But that afternoon, we received a call from the doctor who had concerns and advice us to prepare for your arrival that week. After another checkup on Tuesday, mummy was scheduled in to induce delivery on Wednesday.
So here's mummy now, just a week later. Lying in a hospital bed with tubes and monitors attached to me. Last night, mummy started taking pills to prepare the passage for you. The sun is peeking over the horizon now. Mummy didn't get much sleep with all your kicking and the contractions she is having. She's been praying for you and hoping you will be healthy. Mummy is also praying that you will start kicking up a fuss and prepare to come out. Mummy don't want anymore drugs to bring you into the world. You are meant to come at God's timing and she is trusting God to take control. Mummy wanted to experience a drug free, natural labour but whatever helps in bringing you safely into the world, she will accept it. Please be safe little one. Please stay strong and healthy.
It's a new day! Daddy and mummy eagerly waits to welcome you.
Some pictures to remember.
