Awesome Gift & Baby News!

A handmade bassinet!! I was in shock. Okay so this is a kinda strange situation. My ex from high school... his uncle now works with DH. This uncle knew I was a good kid back then and knew his nephew effed up when he cheated on me and broke my tiny heart! haha! So when he started working with DH, DH told him about how he was now married to me. They ended up working closely together and this uncle loves my DH. So yesterday he asked DH if he could bring something over that he made for us & Lillian. I was totally taken back when I saw it! It matches the furniture in her room. DH had no idea either! We are so blessed to have such awesome people in our lives. I just think its funny how life works! Never thought this ex's uncle would be involved in our child's life!
On another note... baby news! So yeah. I'll be meeting my little lady on Friday August 28th! I am feeling every kind of emotion you can think of! I am NOT putting this out there on the boards b/c I know so many people have different feelings on induction. And honestly I don't want to hear them! I went to the doctor yesterday and the doctor I saw is the type that will tell you how it is. Even if you don't want to hear it! And she said I'd be fine to go ahead with it. So that made me feel better. A few of the other doctors are really relaxed but not this one. She is very cautious and I felt if she was on the fence about it then I would need to think twice about it. But she said baby and I would do fine. She said since I've made so much progress at this point it should go fast (fingers crossed) and I'd meet her that same day! I can't financially not be paid for a month. So being that I am on maternity leave already, the doctor said Lillian will be fine, I decided to go ahead with it. I've told some of you already and I REALLY appreciate you being so understanding! It means a lot! :)
So I will soon meet Lillian and be able to hold her in my arms! I am thrilled and nervous all at the same time!!

Yay! That is an adorable gift. I too plan to be induced for personal not medical reasons about a week early. I have just stopped going to the boards all together, people don't respect that it is our choice and we will do what is safe for baby of course. I am happy for you and look forward to pics of Lillian soon!

Oh my goodness. She's going to be here soon! I can't believe it, Mrs. Pink. I'm so excited for you. That bassinett is beautiful. I wish I had one.

As far as comments from others, it's a decision for you and your doctors and I'm happy it's working out for you. I know you'll appreciate having that time with little Lillian. I can't wait to see pictures of her!
