So here's the latest!
Today at the DR's we got bad news, and good news.
The bad news: I am only dilated 1 centimeter and have passed my due date... the Dr. is going on vacation on Friday... and going past my due date makes me SO nervous since we have gotten this far and are practically kissing our baby girl on the cheek.
The GOOD news: I was hooked up to the monitor for about a half an hour and the baby looked beautiful! The Dr. understands my concerns about going much past my due date, and wants me to be successfully delivered before she goes on vacation. She stripped my membranes to try to get things moving.... and said my cervix is favorable, but...
... drum roll please...
Wednesday, July 16th, at 8:00 am we will be at Los Alamitos Medical Center for a scheduled induction and our dreams will come true!
I am a bit nervous about the pitcocin, I've heard that the contractions are very painful. BUT, at the same time, we have come a long way to be at this point and I would rather go through more pain and have our baby girl here, then risk waiting. We are so ready!!
If you know we have your cell number, you can expect text message updates on Wednesday. (if we don't and you want to be on the list, email me email@example.com)
We will be sure to let everyone know how things are progressing and of course once she arrives!
