38 Week Checkup and Exciting News!

I had my 38 week checkup this morning. The doctor was late getting there, because he was delivering a baby. They hooked me up for a Non-Stress Test, and watched the baby for awhile. It wasn’t until the nurse came in and started pushing on my belly before I started contracting. I asked her if she’d come home with me, since she seemed to have the magic touch, but she politely declined.

A little while later, the doc came in and checked my cervix. We talked about my breakdown last Wednesday, and he asked how I was doing. (I never told you all, but I went into his office, convinced I was in labor, only to find out I wasn’t even contracting.) Last week was a very emotional week, and I was a total mess all week.

He checked my cervix and was pleasantly surprised to find that I’ve dilated almost to a 3! That’s HUGE news for me, because I’ve never made it past a 2 on my own before. We talked about letting me go on my own, but because my blood pressure has been spiking a little too high, he felt it was better to just go ahead and schedule my induction.

Sooooooo………. Gage Walker will make his appearance sometime this Thursday, March 10th. I’m so excited. I’ve been praying that I wouldn’t miss our revival at church this week, and since it runs tonight through Wednesday, this is perfect!

If I disappear for a bit, you’ll know why, but I’m going to try my darndest to catch up (and get ahead!) before I go off and have this baby.

Thanks for all your prayers and concerns, thoughts and emails. I really do have the best readers on the net!

    I know exactly how emotional it can get at the end – I had the hardest time staying sane waiting past my due date for Isaac to be born! Now it’s all but a dim memory, LOL. Pretty soon you’ll have your baby boy in your arms and will be able to think about something else for a change! hehe Like, you know, diapers, sleeping (or lack of), nursing… 😉
