Last Day as a Family of Three

We are at the hospital! Thankfully our doctor wanted to go ahead and induce to ensure I received my eight hours of antibiotics, so we just checked in. I'll get my first dose soon with the second dose to follow at 4 am, then my water will be broken. If I don't contract on my own, I'll get Pitocin at 5 am. My doctor seemed to think she might be here before his office hours begin. We will see! 

It's been a really busy day and a little bittersweet as I've spent my last day just Jackson and me. He's such a joy, and I pray this transition will go well for him. Thankfully he's asleep at his grandparents and in good hands. 

Can't wait to meet my sweet Ella Kate

p.s. I'm thankful for modern medicine.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Congrats! Hope you get some rest before the pitocin is administered at 5am! And I also am going to be sentimental on our last day of family of 3, which coincidentally is also when my son turns 3. I hope it is a special day for all of us. Good luck! Best wishes for perfect health of mom and Ella. And the transition for Jackson to being a big brother.

Super super exciting. Hope everything went well this weekend and that you're home by now, growing used to being a family of four!
