Today is the Day!

There are just over 12 hours to go before we check into the hospital. Surprisingly, I don't feel anxious at all. I feel extremely calm and at peace.

Harry is sleeping. He will be going to school late today in order to get some extra rest before the long journey that awaits us.

Last night was our final night at home as a childless married couple. I feel so blessed to have a husband who gave me all the extra love and attention I needed without having to ask. He is simply wonderful.

The next time we come back home, we will have our daughter with us. We are so excited to finally meet our precious little girl.

I can't wait to see her for the first time. I can't wait to see who she will look like. I can't wait to feel her in my arms. I can't wait to stare at her in awe, wondering how this perfect little being could come from me. I can't wait to see Harry hold her for the first time. Thinking about all of this is making my heart overflow with joy.

Truthfully, I didn't want an induced labor. I had hoped that my body would start the process on its own. But I am willing to do whatever it takes to get her out safely. I was also able to prepare for tonight in a way I wouldn't have been able to if I hadn't have known when she was coming.

All in all, I am ready. I'm not scared like I thought I'd be. I am confident and relaxed. Sometime tomorrow I will meet my baby girl, and I will be able to look Heaven in the face. I honestly can't wait!!
