Well, tomorrow is the date set for my induction, and I have to tell you that I am SOOOOOO excited about it!! It is a little hard to see people’s faces when I tell them that I’m getting induced, because EVERYONE has an opinion about it and very few of them have been positive. It’s funny because I say, “I’m going to have my baby on Monday.” and the general response is a loving touch to my abdomin and with a small grimace and they say, “Oh, you’re going to have a c-section?” with a sympathetic smile and a tsk, tsk on their tongue.
When I reply that my doctor is going out of town and doesn’t think I’ll make it to my due date so I’m going to be induced *gasp* one week early, the response changes dramatically, the hand is whisked back, and the nice thoughts and comments cease to flow. The advice comments swiftly follow and I am bombarded with the “You know what this or that causes” advice. Funny how everyone I’ve talked to has attended medical school just like my doctor!!! Ok, ok…so I appreciate the concern. It’s nice to know that people want what’s best for me and my baby, and it’s actually kind of sweet, right? Speaking of babies…
Here are a few of the names we have narrowed it down to:
We do have a little concern about the “ton” part of Aston being dropped during this boy’s stint in middle school, and Samson, well, if you know our last name, you know that that one is just a really big, funny joke. Hee, hee! We are still looking for an old fashioned, nice, normal name for a boy, but it can’t be Luke, Gila Man already said no. *pout*
So, wish us luck for the big day and we will keep you updated with the newest news!
