Tomorrow is THE Day

I figured I would update what's happened this week with baby news. I went to the doctor on Tuesday morning this week. As with the past month of appointments, nothing had really changed, dialated 1 cm. Four weeks ago, I thought that was great, now not so much. The baby has been head down for awhile, so that's good. With Friday being the due date, my doctor wanted to go ahead and schedule a day to induce because she didn't want me to go past 41 weeks. She gave us a choice between this Friday and next Friday. We, well really I, decided this Friday was going to be it. I have mixed feelings about it because I didn't really want to be induced, but that weighed with another week of being big and pregnant and the fact that my body has not done too much in a month, made the choice this Friday. Obviously you can't even predict what's going to happen and when the baby's going to come. For all I know, I could go into labor today, or I could have to be induced next Friday if I waited that long.

So, the decision has been made. Tomorrow it is. We have to go to the hospital at 5 am to get the whole process started. My parents are coming tonight on the last flight from Houston and will be here through the weekend. I think my Mom is going to stay for a week and my Dad will stay until mid-week.

I've just spent the last few days getting things ready around the house, going for walks, and just relaxing. I was blessed (sarcastic!) with a lovely cold last Friday, so I've been trying to get over that as well.

We will be up bright and early (actually it'll still be dark outside!) to head to the hospital and will update as soon as we can! We are so excited to meet Cole! :)
