It's 3 am, but I Won't be Lonely

So, the doctor gave me a date and time to come in and deliver the baby. If you read the title at all, you've figured out the time. No, I'm not joking. I hope all of you get a good night's sleep for me & Derek that night.
So, hopefully, we'll be welcoming Eli sometime during the afternoon of October 7.
Exciting!!!!

well congratulations! Can't wait to "meet" him! And, I'm quite sure you feel the same way, only more so. Good luck with everyhing.

I'll be up at 3am too! Except I'll be feeding my almost 7month old...ugh! The joys of motherhood! I have a date to come and see you next week! Can't wait to meet little Eli!

Mariley Johnson said...

That is exactly why Mark will not be an OB.
Good luck. I think it's cheating though having the date and time already scheduled.

Minharos said...

Wow, that's so soon. Congrats and good luck. Just don't sleep in :)

Melissa said...

3am? I've never heard of anyone going in at that time! How are you supposed to get any rest the night before? Oh well, I'm just glad you have a date and don't have to go over this time! I hope things go well!

Good luck!! Crazy how inconvenient the time is...what is your doctor thinking!!!! I'm so excited...I love the name Eli!!!

Lolly said...

sorry to be off subject, but I just wanted you to know that I am making the rice to take to someone in our ward's house. You should really be offended that they didn't invite you though.

It must be sort of strange to have that much forewarning and yet nice at the same time. I wish I could be there to see the little guy. Now, I'm even more excited for Christmas. Good Luck, and we'll be praying for you, Derek, and Eli.

Heather said...

That is crazy!!! We'll be thinking about you for sure (maybe not right at 3am, but closer to 7 or 8:)).

Lyndsey said...

congrats!! that is maxs birthday also! good luck, i hope all goes well and fast! I will keep checking to see when you have him so i can bring you dinner...

Sabina said...

Good Luck! We will be thinking of you. Wish we were closer.

DKAZ said...

I think it's safe to assume that the next time we get together you will be the mother of three. Hopefully the new addition isn't three before we actually do it! :) Good luck lady and Happy Birthday Eli!

JLJ said...

I was called in a 1:30 am. I guess the middle of the night is the most likely time that they'll have openings. Good luck! I think heading to the hospital to deliver a baby is probably the most exciting thing I've ever done. I love that part!

Brittany and Scott said...

3 am is early, but i think by now you have already had eli!! congrats!!

Kim said...

Maybe you'll get lucky and deliver on your own before then. In case you haven't checked my blog, Reid came on Thursday, October 2nd. We had an appointment earlier in the day and our doctor set us up for induction on October 8th, but within 4 hours he was here. We'll be waiting to hear how it goes!

Jessica Martiele said...

Mine was 5 AM...you win by a MILE! GOOD LUCK!!!!!

steve said...

Wow!!! I'm excited for you!! 3am??? Hmmm, I guess you like to deliver early and still have the rest of the day to do stuff. . . ;-)

Carianne said...
