BABY UPDATE!

I spent 2 and half hours Monday night at St. Agnes Labory and Delivery! I was having contractions and lower back pain so they hooked me up to the monitor, took my blood pressure, and checked my cervix. I was definitely having contractions so they asked me to walk around the hospital for an hour to try and dilate some more. Mind you it was 12am :( but luckily enough Matt is home and so he was able to be there with me. We got to see some newborns and met a lot of the staff. I was really hoping that we would be able to stay and that it was the real thing! But at 1am they checked me again and no progress! DARN! I was so uncomfortable and was cramping even more after being checked twice for dilation. I know I am about to birth a baby... but cervix checks HURT SO BAD! UGH! I hate them. The nurse even tried to stretch my cervix to get me to dilate more so I could stay. The nurse kept apologizing cause she could see my pain. I figure I have to get used to it, right? lol

So... anyways... I went in to see my doctor this morning and he said that since I am having contractions and my cervix is favorable, we could schedule an induction. THANK YOU LORD! And that is a sincere thank you! I am ready (as much as a first time mom can be) for this baby! So no matter what... the baby will be here on FRIDAY! F-R-I-D-A-Y! Now all the sudden I am scared and excited, but definitely anxious. I have so many emotions now that I know a for sure day the baby will arrive. I hope that somehow I go naturally before then... Pitocin (medicine to help dilate) brings on strong and never ending contractions. So the whole natural route will be detoured from and drugs WILL be involved. I will still try to go without an epidural but I am no super woman and I also want a relaxing and calm environment for my labor. I can't believe I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I will NOT miss being pregnant and WILL enjoy my new adventure of being a mommy. WISH ME LUCK!

5am. Friday. :)
