Last dr. visit

We went to our last Ob appointment yesterday. I haven't done any changing. I was a little sad because I don't want the induction to be hard. But......I will do what ever it takes. So unless they want to get me on the pit. I will go in at 7:30 am on Fri the 20Th. If they do want to give me a little something to get me going, I will go in Thurs. night. This time next week we will have a baby. The order for everything is as follows. Shortly after Alex is born and if he is stable enough, we will get to spend a few minutes with him between 5-20. Then he will go on the prostiglandin. He will be in the NICU at the U for as little as a few hours or up to 24. Then the life flight team comes down to get him ready to transport to Primaries. If there is lots of room at the PICU he will go there if not he will go to the NICU until room is available. He will have a series of test to check to see if there are any other abnormalities and to see if he got any infections or bacteria from birth. If everything is looking good then his surgery will be scheduled for sometime that next week. And we will go from there.
