Appointment Day

Anyone else tired of these updates? I am!

I had my appt. today and not much has changed (surprise)! I am still dilated 3+ and 80% effaced. The doctor says he doesn't know how I've held on this long because the baby is very low. But, he said I still could go another 1-2 weeks.... or have the baby any day! He also acted as if this baby will come very quickly when I do go into labor. That makes me very nervous!

But now for the good news. He asked if I wanted to have the baby before Christmas and of course I said yes! So, he said we would see where I was next week and possibly induce before Christmas! Yeah! I am trying really hard not to get my hopes up, because you know how doctors are... next week he might say,"I don't remember saying that, I don't want to induce you!" But, we figured that he probably would rather deliver a baby before Christmas than on Christmas!

The baby will come very quickly, huh? Has Karen been reading up on delivering babies?

You should go for a run. That'd probably induce something. Just drag a bassenett behind you in case you need it.

Christmas Eve! Christmas Eve! That's my vote.

I have no idea how to deliver a baby--that is Tom's job.

I'll be honest Emily, Kendra's birthday is Dec 21 and Preston's birthday is Dec 30. Preston's birthday is much easier to plan and shop for because I have a week or so AFTER Christmas. So keep those legs crossed and NO RUNNING.
