Very early on Tuesday's morning

Well, since our 'bundle of joy' chose not to come during the night Operation Waiting for Tuesday has been forced into plan b. It is currently some horrible hour of the day (4.30am... some call it morning, I call it hell) and we are off to the hospital! Our doctor has scheduled us for a medical induction. There's no need to go into the why and how come - both mother and baby are healthy - but we really don't have a whole lot of choice. The down sides are less freedom to move around due to regular monitoring and a higher risk of C section, but we'll deal with those as we come to them. It wasn't exactly what we planned but there are a lot of good things about it:
  1. Hopefully he'll be born on a Tuesday (we didn't get to pick the day so that's kind of freaky)
  2. We get our doctor, who we really like and trust
  3. We know roughly when it's all going to happen rather than waiting and waiting
  4. It gets our friend Matt off the 'emergency driver Jo's waters will most likely break in your car bring towels' hook
  5. A bunch of other stuff but it is too early to remember what that is right now...
So, I will post an update as soon as we get home, and I'll do my best to get messages out as soon as there's any major news, but please don't call us yet. We'll most likely have our phones off for most of the day and tomorrow. I will let you know as soon as we can. Keep us all in your thoughts and prayers but mostly pray that Jo doesn't get so hungry that she goes on a rampage and decimates a good chunk of the San Antonio healthcare system...

Wooohooo - Tuesday's morning. I like it. Good luck, and prayers and thoughts will be with you! I may have to ban myself from checking blogger for at least long enough for a baby to be born (and a bit) till there's news. But don't hurry to post for us (or at least not to post much!) - enjoy your baby!

I hope your beloved's induction goes better than mine did. 14 hours, 12 of it with broken waters...and I still had to have a C section! My little man was just too big! Ugh.
Keeping all three of you in my thoughts for the next few days!

I've been obsessively checking the blog with no updates and thought maybe, just maybe I'll get some news through the comments page! Is the bottom one right? Has he arrived, are Josie and he ok? I hope you are all doing well and I can't wait for the confirmation. Oh and James McKay had a little baby boy a couple of weeks ago...
