Pre-op day!

Today I am 37 weeks and 6 days pregnant…and today is my pre-op ready for Friday!

How am I feeling? Nervous, worried…excited! A big mixture of feelings all bubbling up inside and I’m not quite sure which one is the most dominant!

It’s silly really – I’ve been through the op twice before – I know what to expect…and I think that may be the problem. I know…

Not that it’s really awful, I’ve done it twice…and at the end I get to meet my beautiful new baby…I get to see if I’ve a new son or daughter…

It’s just that I know the process. I know how it works. I know about the cannulas in my hands. I know about the injection in my back. I know about not being able to move afterwards…

But today I see the midwife for a final antenatal check. I have bloods taken. They check baby’s position. We chat… and then I sign the consent. The consent for the op. The consent to have my baby…

Only 2 sleeps left…2 sleeps until baby day x
