See You Later

Well, the time has come. My doctor informed me today that we've reached the point where the baby needs to come out, so I'm going in for a c-section in an hour.

The good news is I've made it to almost 36 weeks. Unfortunately the baby's lungs still aren't looking good, so there's a chance he'll spend a few weeks in the NICU. I'm a little stressed about this, of course, but I feel like everything will be okay.

Thank you so much for all of your support over the past few months. I've really appreciated the well wishes, thoughts, and prayers. They've made a difference. I look forward to getting back to normal life again soon, and using this blog to write about WRITING, instead of awful pregnancy.

I probably won't be blogging for the next few weeks, but I will try to post a few updates on Twitter. I hope you all have a great September and I'll look forward to seeing all of your agent and book deal announcements when I get back!

Good luck, best wishes and my thoughts are with you. Everything will turn out fine, you'll see.

My lungs were underdeveloped when I was born just over a month early and it was a little stressful at first but I turned out okay. Doctors train to deal with this kind of thing so, while a little anxiousness is okay don't stress out too much.

Jessica Nelson said...

woohoo, it's time! I'll be praying that everything goes well and that Baby's lungs strengthen quickly.
