Holy Fucking Crap.

My OB just called me at home. He was reviewing my BPP, NST, blood work and 24 hour urine test results and said this to me:

"I know you want to wait, but I'm just not comfortable letting you go until Wednesday. Come in tomorrow for your NST/BPP and I'll review it in the evening. Then I'll call you on Friday and let you know what time I want you in the hospital on Saturday."

Um. Yeah. I'm having a baby in 3 days.

Wow! That's incredible! I guess the bright side is that you get to meet your little man in 3 days!

Denise said...

YIKES!!!! I know this isn't the scenario you were hoping for, but I'm excited for Karl's arrival.

Jenera said...

Oh shit! I guess Karl wants to come now.

::Hugs:: I'll be thinking of you.

Ali said...

Woo hoo, mama! Get ready, here he comes.

jenn said...

Oh my god. I'm with you babe. I really really wish I was closer to you now!!!

Rachel said...

I hope it all goes great, can't wit for pics and the gory details!
Not that you asked, but I actually preferred having an 'appointment' to give birth to Mr. Farty...made planning my leave and having a sitter available for Ceara easier. Also avoided a middle of the night dash to the hospital, which would've been pretty inconvenient for a single mom, having no one to drive me and all!

The Captain's Wife said...

Ahh man...that means I don't win the totally fucking awesome prize!

I am sorry you are dissapointed...but glad that your doctor cares about Karl enough to want him out here instead of in there...

Elana Kahn said...

Wooo BABY!!! You'd better find a computer at the hospital so you can blog during labor. ;-)

MrsSpock said...

Whoa- that was fast!Saturday will be here before you know it!

Valerie said...

Holy moly you are having a baby Saturday!!!

Oh Wow!!! Its going to be sooo soon! I cant wait to see how cute he is. Thats the same thing that happened to me too with my son, I had to do that 24 hr urine and I turned that in and had my appt and my doc was calling and telling me to come back to the hossy before I even made it home. And then I went back to be monitered and such and ended up staying in the hossy and having a baby a day later. WOW! Ive been reading your blog, sorry I havent posted much. I forgot to tell ya that I finally got a BFP after 5 1/2 yrs trying. Things going well so far Im 7 1/2 weeks. I will say some prayers for you and Karl for a safe delivery and recovery. Good Luck mama! Aubrey (ksmommy27 at Webmd)

margelina said...

I'm with Rachel--scheduled C's are really mind and body savers.

Michelle said...

Sat is my grandma's bday. She's going to be 86 and she's a friggin spitfire. GOOD DAY!!

He wants to be out for the football playoffs!!

Motel Manager said...

Holy crap indeed! That sounds like the prudent course of action, though -- definitely avoid screwing around with BPP issues. Whoa!!! I can't wait for more updates and for you to meet Karl!

Amber said...

Woo Hoo! Cant wait to see your newest little one! Congrats!

Becky said...

WOW! It seems Karl is making it clear that he's the boss. :) It's nice that your doctor is so on top of things- I can't wait to see pictures of the new arrival...
:)

Jen said...

Woohoo! And breathe. I'm sure that everything will go great and you'll be meeting you're little man this weekend.

sara said...

OMG!!!!! I can't believe the time has come. I'll be thinking of you and everything can't wait to hear all about it :-)

chicklet said...

Well if having that damn kid is more important than commenting on my blog, I *guess* I can understand that.

;-)

Good luck my friend, very very exciting!

Mandy said...

holy crap!! I know this is not how you pictured it, but as long as you have a healthy baby boy, that is all that matters. I will be thinking of you, keep us posted!!

Amanda said...

How exciting!!! Good luck Nancy! :)

Miss Tori said...

Ohh what date did I tell you in my e-mail? Now, we'll see if I was right about the time abnd weight!

Cate said...

Holy crap! Well that screws up my guess for the date... Hopefully though Karl decides he's ready Saturday and arrives of his own accord.

Geohde said...

:)

Good luck my friend,

J

Sara said...

Holy cow! You are going to meet Karl a bit sooner than you thought!

Three days!!

Soapchick said...

Yippeeee!!! Everything will be okay. Karl is ready to meet his mama!!!

Krista said...

Oh My!I'll be thinking of you guys and wishing hard for a smooth induction with no complications, and most of all, a healthy baby and mom!

Seriously? - Erin said...

Hey Nancy, I know this isn't exactly what you wanted but it is still so exciting. Here's to the best for you and the little boy!

serenity said...

Baby O was three weeks early, and when my water broke I think I had the same reaction! :)

You get to meet your little guy in three days! eeeee!

Misty Dawn said...

Yikes!! Can't wait for Karl's arrival though.

Anonymous said...

I know it's not the scenario you wanted, but your and his safety are the most important thing (I know you already know that). Good luck! Can't wait to see pictures of him!

KatieM said...

Good luck hun! Crazy how things change so fast, if anything, I'm experienced in that! 3 days hun!!! Thinking of you and Karl....oh, and I totally better get a text that day ;-)

KimboSue said...

Holy Fucking Crap is right! Good grief.

Karl wants O.U.T

Truck Driver Wife said...

Holy shit!!

Will say some extra prayers for Karl's safe arrival.

Slightly jealous. I am due before you but looks like your little man is coming first!!

ssbean said...

I know you aren't a fan of inductions, but just remember this is medically necessary. I hope your body is good and ready and it's not real hard on you. I can't wait to see pics of your little man.

calliope said...

oh snap! I'm SO gonna win the pool!

Thinking of you, sweetie.

Wordgirl said...

Oh Nancy,

Now you know the total loss of control is one of those things about the entire IVF process that freaks me out -- I so wanted to control my own process...but I realize now that sometimes, the greatest peace is in relaxing into the process -- even when its not what you imagined. But I know you know that --I think I said that out loud for me rather than for you.

I'm really reassured that your doctors are taking such good care of you.

I'm so excited for you both Nancy. I will be thinking of you constantly.

Love,

Pam

Kelly said...

Holy crap! Exciting!! I know it's not exactly the way you were hoping this would go but the true goal is healthy baby and mommy! GL!!!

Mermaid said...

Wow. Lots of luck!

Hollie said...

OMG Nancy! I'm getting teary-eyed for you right now. I know this isn't exactly how you planned things, but the dr knows what he is doing.

ak said...

WOW!! How exciting and nerve wracking at the same time this must be for you!

So wait, does this mean that Saturday they are going to try the version, or just go ahead and do the c-section? I'm guessing they're referring to the section.

I know it kind of sucks that it's totally not going according to your plan, but try not to stress. I'm sure Karl is just fine and ready to meet you guys!

My son made his debut at 37 weeks and a few days, and he was perfectly fine.

Good luck!!!!! Can't wait to see lil man.

Jewels said...

oh wow! that's awesome,
I'll be getting a facial and you'll be having a baby - what a great day =D
Hopefully he'll turn today- are you still going in for your acupuncture?

Coco said...

Good Luck!

Bree said...

Wow. Sooner than you hoped, but apparently the perfect time for Karl. Hoping everything goes well for you... it will... it has to.

Hugs.

Peeveme said...

I'm glad your dr. is being cautious. I'll be looking for your update and thinking good thoughts for you guys.

Sarah R said...

As Joey would say, "WHOA!"

Good luck, sweetie. I guess you don't really have a choice!

~Hugs~ I'll be thinking of you, sweetie!

Lilith Silvermane said...

~hugs~ I know... panicy, tearful, anxious... soon enough you will be holding the kicking little man!

Get the family ready! He's comin'! My baby will turn one tomorrow... they will have friends :)

Thinking of you!

BTW, went to the roller derby site! We are talking about going to the Feb 7th tournament with your derby girls! Maybe we can all meet up...

Good luck honey!

Anonymous said...

I guess Karl wanted to make his presence known. Man, I'm sorry this wasn't the way you wanted it to be. Did the acupuncture work or will it b a c-section for sure? Regardless, I'm hoping everything will go VERY smoothly for you.

This is kind of similar to what happened to me. It ended up being too risky to wait.

Good luck, Nancy!

I know it's not the way you wanted it but you have to admit, it's exciting to know that Karl will be here this weekend!
