38 Weeks

Well, this will be my last pregnancy post for this little guy.  It has been an intersting journey this time around.  Although I like being pregnant this pregnancy was much hard on my body emotional and physically but every bit of it is worth having this little guy be apart of our world.

At 37 weeks I started having contractions on and off.  Nothing big but they were there.  This last appointment I went ahead and did what I dread and asked if they would check to see if there was any progress at all.  Knowing that Gracie was 2 days past her due date I was expecting a no.  My doctor checked me out and to my surprise I am 4 centimeters dilated and 90 effaced.  Wow, ok!  She said if I make it to next week they would want to induce me.  I am scheduled to see the doctor Wednesday & if there is still no baby they will induce me on Friday.  Troy is hoping I hold out till Friday and I am just hoping to get as many days with Gracie as I can.

So very soon life will be so different.

Wow! If you're that far dilated already, I'm sure it won't be too long. Good luck!

Wow, so excited for you! Luke has another cousin on the other side who will be induced to have her boy on Friday if he doesn't come sooner, also. Crazy! 11/11/11 though, what a cool birthdate that would be :) We'll be thinking of you!
