5 more sleeps!!

The countdown is in full force!! Only 5 more sleeps to go, I am very, very excited!! I am also a little uncomfortable but that's okay, not long to go now!! At the last OB appointment on Monday, the doctor told me that I may have to have a classical ceasar - which means that the skin scar will be horizontal but the cut on my uterus will be vertical. He hopes to be able to do the horizontal incision on my uterus as well but may have to do the vertical due to the shape of my uterus - boooo. The effects of this are: the incision is harder to repair and is more likely to rupture in future pregnancies (OB said that they wouldn't let me go past 37 weeks in any future pregnancy) and more bleeding can result. I am very much hoping that he can do the horizontal incision on the uterus. I am trying not to worry too much about the operation part of the birth and focus on the result, the lovely JBB.
I had a lovely day with my bestie yesterday, we bobbed around in the pool for awhile chatting before we had a facial and then a delicious lunch - it was a wonderful day! I ended up going to the footy last night and JourneyMan, the fabulous husband, dropped us off and picked us up at the gate which made our lives much, much easier!! I am absolutely exhausted today so am having another day on the couch to rest up. I have a few fun things planned over the next few days, movie with JourneyMan and then lunch, movies and free facials with my mum, sister and auntie on Tuesday which should be fabulous!! I am busy, but not too busy which is really nice - I am making the most of the last few days of a child free life though I am very, very much looking forward to our lives changing forever in 5 short days - whoo hoo!!


  1. Classic c can be scary. That is the closest thing they could liken my rupture and subsequent repair to, so I completely know where you are coming from on hoping to not have to go that route. I pray they can give you the horizontal cut too.

    It sounds like you have some really great things planned. Lots of R&R, which is exactly what you need before D-Day!

    I'm thinking of you. :)


  2. The last few days before your miracle arrives are so special. Enjoy every minute. Hubby and I went to the restaurant where we had our first date, it felt nice to go full circle. In just a few short days, you'll meet the greatest love if your life...amazing.

  3. Woohooo is right!! I'm so excited for you and keeping my fingers crossed your operation is smooth and they're able to do horizontal!

  4. Only 5 days to go! I can't believe it!!!

  5. I just can not believe that a short time ago I found your blog via Chelle and here you are about to have a baby. It is insane to me that this has gone by so fast. I know that you are having JBB a little early but still its just flown.
    Enjoy the little time you have left before he arrives and good luck on the birth if I don't comment before then :)

  6. Almost there my Loverely!

    I had the honour to be following your journey for a couple of years before it was a donor egg journey. There was heartbreak, hopes dashed, lotsa surgery and THEN it became a very special donor egg journey....and while it hasn't always been easy you have made it! Your gorgeous Journey Baby will soon be in yours and Journey Man's arms (with Journey Dog looking proudly on!) and you will be a family....and in doing so you have made me (for one) soooo proud! Congratulations Journey Mum! Lotsa love LS xxxxx
