Tag Archives: picking a due date


That’s the date we meet our baby!!!

Our last two visits to the Dr.S were about the checking all vitals and determining when the baby would come into this world and in our arms. We almost always knew that we’d have an elective c-section mostly because of the history and then the low lying placenta. Dr.S doesn’t want to take any chances and neither do we. Though what I didn’t know was that we get to pick the date!

Can you imagine? After all this uncertainty starting from the ectopics, the IVF treatments etc and none of it going as planned…was pleasantly surprised that we had some certainty here. We got to pick the baby’s birth date, give birth in a controlled environment where chances of things going south are limited. Of course, you still never know in case something goes wrong but this is as controlled as it gets. Hopefully the only surprise on Tuesday will be the baby’s gender!

Dr.S gave us three dates and we picked the middle one (no apparent reason). We kept this to ourselves because if our parents were involved they’d look for an “auspicious” day and try to time it all. For DH and I, it didn’t matter. The day our baby comes into the world will be a good day …the best day of our lives!

So now we have less than 72 hours to go…wish us luck! Can’t believe it’s all happening 😊
