There is a plan.
And there isn't a plan.
I wish there was a P.L.A.N.
But there isn't.
The first goal is for my pregnancy to go to 39 weeks. (Babies with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome born before 39 weeks have more complications. We do not need those.) However, I haven't made it that far in a pregnancy yet.
I will have an induction scheduled if I make it that long for the University of Utah hospital.
This is so Leo can go directly to Primary Children's within an hour of his birth.
In fact, they have a special labor and delivery room that has a window in the wall that goes directly into UofU's NICU. They will check him over and maybe I will get to hold him before they transfer him across the sky bridge to PCMC.
biggest first worry is making sure I deliver at UofU. All my babies have been born between 37-38 weeks. They have also all been fast 6 hours, 5 hours, 3 hours.
As I get closer, the lovely doctors will decide when I need to plan on staying in SLC so that I don't give birth in Logan (2nd choice) or having to stop in Ogden (not a choice) or on the road to SLC (also not an option).
Unfortunately this will all probably be happening when the girls are starting school. I really hate this. I want to be here for their first day. They want me to be here too. I think the only way that would happen is if I do not dilate early. This is doubtful.
First hurdle: Get to 39 weeks.
