It's Coming!

I'm going to the hospital. Having contractions. I guess the induction issue is no longer a concern since I'm at 37 weeks. Thank goodness. The baby might be born on 11/11/11. Who knows?

Yesterday, I went to have an ultrasound. As I was looking at the screen, I said, "Oh there's an ear. It's fully developed."

The ultrasound tech cleared her throat, "That's the scrotum."

Oh," I said. I didn't know what to say so I said, "I guess I don't look at those every day to recognize it." (Maybe not the best answer.)

Well, wish me luck for an easy delivery. The ultrasound doctor said he will be either 9 or 10 lbs.

And no more late night television because I can't sleep! Last night, I was watching an animal show at 2 A.M. in the morning where a woman in Australia was keeping 3 alligators as pets in her house. One drove around in her backseat with a collar on. I was yelling at the T.V., "Are you nuts!" And then I realized, I'm the nut for watching pet alligators on T.V. at 2 A.M.

Maybe after the baby, I can sleep agai. Oh wait, that's right, the baby will be up in the middle of the night for feedings. Okay, maybe in a year? God help me. :o)

Oh, Deb. I'm not even sure if you remember me or not, but I used to write at Zookins. Life with my Great Pyrenees, infertility, PCOS, the whole gamut. Somewhere along the way, I lost track of you; and for that, I'm truly sorry.

And I'm so sorry for the loss of Sebastien. He was gorgeous, Deb, really and truly, and I'm so sorry that your time with him was so short.

I hope that you're celebrating the birth of your little one - looks like he should be just a few weeks old. Please come back & update when you get a second, or send me an e-mail. I hope to get in touch with you again soon - you were one of the kindest friends I ever came across on the big, loud internet.

Big, big, big hugs to you, both in sorrow and congratulations...
