It's official our sweet Baylor will be making his big arrival this Friday!!! My BP was "ok" at the office this morning, but has been up the whole time I've been home from the hospital. Jonathan, Dr. D, and I all decided that it would best to stick with our original plan and deliver on Friday instead of waiting another week. Dr. D checked me today and I'm so excited because I'm already 1.5 cm dilated and 70% effaced. I knew something had changed because I've felt a lot of pressure since Monday. It feels good going into the induction when my body has already started the process on it's own.
We had originally planned to go in Friday morning at 5:00, but Dr. D would like me to go in tomorrow at 3 pm and start the cervadil over night. It is a medication to help soften the cervix to get ready for the induction itself. They will start the pitocin on Friday morning between 4-6am and we should have our sweet little boy that afternoon sometime.
Everyone keeps asking me if I'm nervous. I feel so many emotions going into this; excited, nervous, anxious, sad that my daddy and sister won't be here, overwhelmed of fear of the unknown of what exactly my body is about to go through,but we are SO ready for this and the wait we had to get here is making everything SO much sweeter!
I will try and post an update when things settle down. I might even get Jonathan to post a little update after Baylor arrives. Until then please continue to pray for us, our Doctor, and the rest of the hospital staff that will be taking care of me and Baylor.
