Almost there...

... MONDAY!!
Last night into this morning I was having contractions I could feel about 10 minutes apart but I didn't want to get too excited because I have been having contractions for so long, and the last time he checked they weren't dilating me.  I figured since I had my appointment today I wouldn't worry about calling the dr even though it was reason to based on when he told me to call. So I went to my appointment today (38 weeks 4 days) and he said he would check me and we could plan from there. He was halfway through saying something and stopped himself by saying "oh yeah, you are easily 5cm. I am on Monday what do you think about being induced Monday morning? Assuming you don't have the baby before then. That way we can put a stopping point down" Now, had you asked me this at the beginning of my pregnancy I would have said no way. But 9 weeks of early labor contractions is enough, and this way my dr gets to deliver the baby. In terms of when my mom has off to watch RuthAnne and Isaac being able to get time off the date actually works out great, so that was exciting too. Isaac will have the week off from classes and works, which is great too, that doesn't happen hardly ever. Just if we go out to Michigan to visit family. Also, the dr made the decision, he didn't ask me to pick a day, so I still didn't have control, he doesn't really either, Monday is just the day he is on. Isaac was so excited he had his status posted on facebook before I got halfway home He stayed home with RuthAnne. Also, he doesn't update his status often. lol Anyway.. I am super excited. Kinda hoping I do have the baby before so that I know what it is like to go into labor with RuthAnne my water broke with no contractions and 3.5 hours later I was in active labor Also, I know I can't handle an epi... so I don't know how that is going to work out... hopefully they just break my waters and things just progress.

So at 39 weeks 1 day; Monday, January 18th, 2010 is going to be the baby’s birthday Unless it comes before, which would totally be okay too :)
