have my baby
Due in 3 weeks

...and I am nervous.

Not about becoming a parent, but about the whole hospital thing. Since I have RA, my doc scheduled a c-section a week before my due date so that we aren’t rushing or causing more stress on my body. So, a major surgery is kind of nerve wracking for me since the most intense medical procedure I have ever needed was stitches on my arm and that was only a year and a half ago.

Never broke a bone or sprained anything.
Never needed my wisdom teeth pulled (or had braces or cavities for that matter).
Never have been admitted and stayed the night at a hospital (let alone be there for 3 days!).

But I am getting very excited to meet my baby girl and get to know her as she grows and develops. I am confident that by that time, the hospital experience will be a fleeting memory.
