Big Day for the Long's

Yesterday was a pretty exciting day for us! First of all, Nick had his interview at Georgetown for their nurse anesthetist program. He felt really good about it! This is one of our top choices so having him get an interview was pretty awesome and then having him feel good about it was even better! I went down with him because we had two baby appt's as well - a 28 week growth screening and my regular OB appointment. Baby boy is growing great and falls in the 55% so that's good. We also found out that they are going to be inducing me on January 14th. After talking to my OB, she said that even if I was doing this good until the end, they would still take him early because babies gain a lot of weight at the end and that could cause complications for us because my kidney is in the front and it could possibly make it hard for him to get out! To make sure all is well, I have to go get biophysical profiles once a week now just to check him out! I feel really blessed to have this doctor caring for me and the baby becauase she really wants us both to be healthy. I know they wouldn't do anything that wasn't safe for me or the baby. Nick and I can't believe how quickly this whole thing is happening and that we will soon have our son here!!!

That is so exciting for you and Nick! We'll keep our fingers crossed Nick. As for you Amanda, that is so awesome that you know your due date. I have been induced with both my boys and have had a great experience with it. You pack your bags, have everything ready, and can pick your baby's birthday. How awesome is that? It is coming up so soon! Yay!
p.s. I am bummed I didn't get to see you when you were here! Looks like you had fun with the fam though. Call me next time!!!!

WHAATT??? That is the COOLEST! The 14th, eh? BUMMER that we will have left to come back to UT by then, but so exciting for you guys to have a date! At the end of the pregnancy, the anxiety of not knowing when or how going into labor will happen is stressful. So cool to have a date already! And way cool info about Nicks' interview. That's huge for you guys. Now just get through that schpiffy program and get your booties out here so our boys can grow up best buds!
