Excited

On monday i had a doctor's appointment, it was pretty exciting. I asked the doctor what his guess was on how much the baby weighed and he said it was somewhere between 7 and 3/4 pounds and 8 pounds. Lets hope she doesn't gain any more weight... I also learned that i am dialted to 1 cm and i'm 60% effaced. Wooo Hooo! I'm making some sort of progress. I know it doesn't mean much but its better than not being dilated at all.

I asked my doctor what his feelings were on induction. I asked because my mom is flying into town and i want her to be here when the baby is born, rather than her just sitting around with me still being pregnant. He said that because i am making progress that next week he could probably do an induction, he would just have to check with the hospital. I was freaking out at this point because i wasn't expecting him to give the induction "green light" until i was past my due date. He said that Wednesday of next week would work best, and if not then he would try friday. I left his office not knowing what exactly we had planned, but i was excited that this baby might be coming next week. Two hours later i got a call from him saying that there was an opening at the hospital on Wednesday September 2nd at 6:00am, and that they were holding the spot for me!!!!!!

So if this little one stays put for the next week then i will be induced the morning of the 2nd!

One week from tomorrow....

Oh!! I completely feel your excitement! I couldn't believe it when my doctor said he was going to break my water a week early. It's so fun to know that by next Wednesday your little girl will be here!!! I'm so excited for you and to see pictures of her adorableness! Keep us updated and best of luck cute soon-to-be momma!

What? You mean, this is like, for realsy? CRAZY. I wish I could see your excitement in person; I LOVE your facial expressions, and could picture your giddiness whilst reading this post. When does your mama fly in? I'm so excited for you!

How exciting! Just from experience I would do everything you can to go into labor naturally first if at all possible. Being induced is really hard on your body! I was induced and the recovery was awful and the contractions super painful because of the patocin making my body contract and my body trying to do something else. My sisters have experienced induction verses going into labor naturally, and they say it's less painful and recovery is so much better if your body does it when it's ready. But I can definitely understand wanting to have the baby when your mom is here! Maybe go running and try some other methods first though to see if you can't get it going on your own! Good luck!! Can't wait to see this little girl!!

Congratulations! Although, I was really hoping Friday would have been the day. The fourth is my b-day! Not to scare you, but I was induced with Gavin on March 27th and he was born on March 29th! I know that won't happen to you since your baby isn't 11 lbs.

Oh wow! I'm so excited for you. I just got that butterfly feeling of nervous/excited...I'm remembering all my emotions. YES...you are going to have a baby. It's really going to happen, and soon!

So fun!!!! You are going to be a mom soon! So exciting! Yay! I got induced... but in stupid Utah they don't let you get induced early because they say that it increases the c-section risk.... well, they didn't induce me until a week AFTER my due date, and I had a c-section still! So I'm sure it will be fine for you because your baby won't be cooking in the oven for longer! I can't wait to see baby Barnard!
