Change of Plans!

Well we were admitted to the hospital this afternoon.  I had an IV running.  I had not ate for 12 hours and it was time for me to be heading to the O.R.
Then the Doctor came in and said she had bad news and had to cancel it.
The reason was the other Doctors in the practice felt my hypertension problems were not bad enough to deliver the baby at 37 weeks.  They want to continue to wait until 39 weeks, when I was originally scheduled and just keep monitoring things.
That had to be one of the weirdest things ever!  I was so ready to have him, but I also want him to be healthy and so here we go...back to waiting!  Maybe he will decide to start things on his own?
Whatever happens I pray for a healthy baby.
Hank was so excited all day to see his baby brother.  He had been with Mimi during the day, but had come to the hospital to see me.  Mimi and Great Grand mom took him to the Toy Store and were about to go eat when we called them with the change of plans.  My parents were also at the hospital too.  Hank actually took the news that his brother was not ready to come out yet well.  I was afraid he would be really upset.

So instead of having a baby, we ate at Chick- Fil- A!

Last morning as a Mommy of One!

Over the last week I have had some blood pressure issues.  I had to go to the hospital to be seen Saturday and then again on Tuesday.  After Tuesday they told me not to go back to work and to rest.  When I went back to the Doctor yesterday she said she would like to move my C-section up.  She was able to have is scheduled for this afternoon!  Today the baby is 37 weeks and considered full term.  I have been saying all along I would love to have this little turkey out for Thanksgiving...just never realized it would happen!
Hard to believe we will be a family of four now.  Hank is excited to be a big brother.  When I picked him up from school yesterday I told him little brother was coming tomorrow and we needed to get a haircut to be ready for him.  The lady at the hair salon asked him if he was a big boy and he said, "No my's a big brother and this is my little brother (pointing at my belly) and he's going to come out in two minutes (pointing up two fingers)."
He says the funniest things.  Lately he has been telling me he is going to marry me and put a ring on my finger and get me flowers out of the garden.  I hope little brother is just as sweet and cute.  We can't wait to meet him!

Hank the Tank!

Hank was a train conductor / train for Halloween.  We went to Mimi and Mamp's neighborhood  for trick or treating and he had lots of fun.  He talked a lot the last few weeks about what he was going to be and it changed all the time.  He was going to be a pumpkin, Spider Man, a ghost, etc   Since I had the costume for about a month I had to tell him that everyone was going to give lots of candy to a train conductor, then he would say, "Me's going to be a train conductor."
I was able to walk to a good many houses with him and then I had to head back and relax.  At one house I asked him what he was supposed to say, and he said:  "Give me some candy....Please."  I was a little worried with that long pause!  One lady asked him what he was (his costume) and he said "Hank."

All aboard!

Getting ready to head out and load up on candy cargo!

Trick or Treat!

What a life!

Lots of fun decorations to look at.  This was at one of Mommy's favorite houses!
