Alright. I'm off!

I'm a little more freaked out now that the initial shock has worn off, but I wanted to say a few parting words ...

First off - THANK YOU, each and every one of you, for being so damned awesome. You were all here to pick me up after my failures and scares. And you stuck by me when I was schnarky. I love you all.

Now, for today, the plans remain the same. I'm leaving for hospital now and my doc is going to try to turn the baby for a vaginal birth at around 5pm. If we're successful, we'll start the process with cyrotec and induce in the morning. If he's stubborn and stays breech, we'll have a c-section immediately after the version. I think I can text to my blog, so I'll try to do just that.

Wow. Here I go.

I can't believe Karl is about to arrive. Weren't you just getting that positive pee stick and worrying about whether or not he was ectopic? The way time has flown by is pure craziness. I'm thinking of you and can't wait to see the pics.
