NO BABY YET!!! I can't believe I'm still pregnant and this little one is so happy inside! After all the time I spent in the early days hoping the baby would stay in, now I am wishing and praying for the opposite! I have truly loved every minute of being pregnant and I know I'll miss it as soon as the baby is born, but I am SO ready to meet this person. The anticipation of wondering when labor will start is pretty intense.
At my OB appointment this morning, my cervix had not changed at all from last week. Still high and not dilated. So, we set an induction date for next Wednesday. My OB said he's glad to do a c-section at any time, but if I want to try for a vaginal birth, time is what I need. SO, I'll go in the hospital next Tuesday night and get medicine to start to ripen my cervix. I'll spend the night there and the induction will officially start Wednesday morning at 7:00 am. Hopefully all those plans are for nothing and I'll go into labor on my own. The doctor's office does not let patients go past 41 weeks, so an induction has to happen next week no matter what. It helps me to have an end date in mind, though. At least I know I'll be holding my baby in less than a week, one way or the other!
Funny comment...my OB said today that my belly looks like "an olive on a toothpick" because I am thin and I have a big round belly. Pretty funny! I'll keep you all posted and will hopefully have news before Wednesday!
I am ginormous!!!
