Sorry Poppy darling, but it’s time for you to come out. It’s been a real joy carrying you these past 38 weeks, but now, you’re starting to make Momma a little bit sick and I just need you in my arms instead of in my belly.
At our doctor’s visit yesterday, we found out that my pregnancy induced hypertension is causing me to develop pre-eclampsia. And to put it simply, she’s in perfect health, but if I go to 40 weeks, I won’t be. So we’re going to the hospital Thursday morning to begin “induction-lite” with some lovely Prepidil that will hopefully trick my body into going into labor over the weekend. If not, well, we’ll bring out the big guns next week. That’s not a great scenario, so let’s hope she decides to show before Monday!
So consider this the official opening of the Poppy baby poll! Leave your guess as to date and time of delivery below and weight and height as well. There will be prizes! If you guess the right date (the time will be a tie-breaker) I’ll knit you a scarf. If you guess the right weight (height will be used as a tie-breaker) then you get a pair of knit socks!
