One month from today....

....I have my pinning ceremony. For nursing...we get this special ceremony in which we have this nice dinner...then we are able to be 'pinned' (if you choose to get a pin... and I did) by whoever we want (I chose Geoff....:). It's supposed to be really nice and our parents are going to attend. My actual graduation is the next day, but I decided that I was not going to walk this time. Even though this degree means so much more to me than my first....I just decided not to.

Anyway....point is.....it's only ONE month away! Can't hardly even believe it. I don't even want to think about all that I've done...all that we've been through since starting this journey back in 2006 when I quit my teaching job!!

And in just two months from today......

Guess what I'll be doing??

I went to the doctor today for my 30 week check-up and because I am a repeat c-section, I had to go ahead and schedule baby #2's birth date. And that date just so happens to be 2 months from today...January 18, 2010!

As I was sitting there talking with the doctor about how this whole scheduled c-section would be...I really had no preference for a date...other than...the later the better. I want her to stay in as long as she can! But I guess because they aren't really wanting me to go into labor, they generally schedule one week ahead of your due date. My due date is January 25th....so exactly one week prior is that Monday, January 18. He asked, "Is Monday good for you?" I said, "Sure!"

It actually works out kind of neat because Parker's birthday is the 18th of September. Geoff's excited about this because it will be easier for him to only have to remember the "18." Haha.

So anyway- I know these plans are all tentative as we really have no clue as to what the future holds, but these are the dates for now. I'm feeling kind of weird about it all. As much as I like to plan things....I wasn't really too excited about "planning" her birth. It's something that I think is kind of fun waiting for....like..."when will she decide to come??" Doing it this way takes some of that guesswork out. But it is what it is and I know it will all work out.

Thanks for listening.
