My Last Night With My Daughter

After meeting with the Maternal Fetal Medicine doctor in Roanoke on Tuesday, our fears for Omara were once again realized and we scheduled for me to be induced Friday/tomorrow (2.26.16).

CHOP

On Friday (2.19.16) Matt and I arrived at CHOP (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) at 7 in the morning. I filled out my medical history and we sat in the waiting room, both of us so filled with hope. We were going to see the experts and they were going to make the plan for Omi's birth. Everything in the week leading up to this visit had pointed us toward such a positive feeling and we couldn't wait to have that feeling vindicated.

The Waiting Game

The nurse I spoke to said they were still waiting for all of our records to arrive, but wanted to get us on the books for an appointment.

February 1st - 7th, 2016

When my husband Matt and I arrived at our doctor's office last Monday (2.1.16) we thought it was going to be a routine visit. We had gotten accustomed to seeing our little baby girl wiggle around on the ultrasound screen every few weeks and were excited to see her again. So far everything was going great. We had found out just two weeks prior that she was a girl and in that time already named her - Omara "Omi" Rose.
