Thank Goodness for Fridays...

I almost could add nothing else to this post and be done, given the picture is exactly how I'm feeling.

Today I had my last pre-natal OB appointment. News was much better than that received last week: I'm starting to dilate and efface, and the doc could feel the baby's head, even if she did have to stick half her arm inside me to do so. If nothing more happens between now and 12:00 a.m. Friday morning (Thursday midnight), C and I will be heading to the hospital so that I can be induced. Induction is certainly not my preference, but neither is begin pregnant for longer than 41 weeks.

YAY!!!! This is about when I remind myself how nice it will be to have a BIG baby, who doesn't need to be in the NICU, knock on wood, and remember BIGGER babies, sleep longer.....so they say!!! :) Hang in there.....

Exciting, exciting!!! Don't worry about being induced. I was with Ellie and I loved it. There was no guessing as to whether or not I was in labor, I was all nice and pain free during the check-in process, and I knew I would not be leaving until I had my baby.
Can't wait to see pictures and hear all about it and finally know Mr. Mullets real name.
Now that I've said all that you will probably go into labor tonight. Have you talked to Emily? She seems to be the good luck charm (and today is a lucky day :).

hooray for friday. i'm okay with inductions and support them within reason. it's nice to have the nurse continually update you on what's going to happen next. they can monitor everything from start to finish and you know they aren't going to send you home for not being in enough active labor.
