Upcoming doctor appointment

December 15th will be our second set of appointments at Boston Children's and Brigham and Women's Hospital. It's only a checkup, they won't really know anything more about Alex's diagnosis till she is born and they can look at her heart without having me in the way. My new obstetrician has told me that he will most likely induce me between my 38th and 39th week (my 38th week begins December 28th) because even though he wants Alex to be able to grow as much as possible, he also knows that there is a chance that she will come out earlier than Aidan did (9 days) and he wants to be able to have a better idea of when the surgery will happen. Like I said there won't be any real news on Alex until she is born but on the 15th we will find out whether we have to move out to Boston right away or if we can wait until the day after Christmas so that we can spend it with Aidan, who doesn't understand that he's even got a little sister, never mind that she has a heart problem. I found out at my last appointment I'm actually a low risk pregnancy so I'm hoping that means we will be able to stay with him for as long as possible. Thanks for checking up on Alex and Happy Thanksgiving!
