36 weeks, 2 days ~ Update

Judging by the number of emails I am getting "just checking in", I figured I would post a brief update. Nothing has changed - Sunflower and I are still hanging out here, with my blood pressure waivering between high normal and normal. Each day brings new levels of discomfort - wow am I ready to be done!

Our news however, is that there is a strong possibility that I will be induced next week, once I am safely 37 weeks. We will decide for sure when we see my OB again on Wednesday and if so, schedule a date. I feel very good about this plan, although I am finding myself having a hard time wrapping my mind around the possibility that I could go through labor and delivery again and have it result in a happy outcome.

Mares and I continue to say a blessing for Ezra, and for you, for David, and for Sunflower. We saw a pregnant woman with curly hair on the train last week, and Mares said, "is that Sarah and Sunflower?" She wants to meet Ezra's mommy. I told her we would try to see you when you have rested and Sunflower has settled in...maybe in spring. Sending you lots of love, Sarah. Lots of love...
