BABY UPDATE!

I had my regular, weekly Dr's visit this morning. Here comes the TMI part.....

I am 2 cm dialated & the baby has dropped (as if I couldn't tell my the increasing pain and pressure in the crotch area that has been especially bad this week!).

The doc is going to try to get me into Women's Hosp tomorrow to be induced! When she asked me about this at my appointment today, I decided to take her up on the offer (rather than play the ol' "wait & see" game until next week). She made the same offer with Riley and I panicked and said "No!"...which resulted in me having to wait another week and two days beyond my due date to finally be induced (and resulted in an 8 lb 13 oz baby!).

There's still the chance that because this is an "elective" inducement (meaning I'm not overdue or have any health risks), that the hospital will be too busy to admit me. If I can't get in, I will have to wait until Monday (unless little Joseph decides to come earlier). Soooo...if you think about it, please send me some prayers and "easy labor vibes" tomorrow! :-) Hopefully, we'll have a healthy baby boy by the end of the day!

Thank God I took my MIS final yesterday!!! Now, I just have a few things to finish up at work....

Will definitely be sending good vibes and prayers! Glad that you made it thru your final, too, without a surprise visitor! A friend of mine who is about your same size had a 10 lb baby boy in March!! I would definitely induce!

Yaa! I hope they get you in. I will say a prayer for you tonight. I hope you have a healthy speedy delivery. Than that you recover fast than Paula Radcliffe can run NYC.

HUGS!!!
