39 Weeks... and it's TIME!!!

I'm 39 weeks today... whoo-hoo!

Besides looking and feeling HUGE, I'm doing okay. My hips have been very sore and I think you could definitely say I waddle rather than walk. I worked Monday and Tuesday this week, then had an appointment with Dr. N late yesterday afternoon.

Baby had been "breathing" really well on the ultrasounds for about the last 3 weeks. Yesterday, however, Dr. N had to really stimulate her to get her to breathe and move. He decided that it is time for her to come out! We are scheduled to check into the hospital tonight at 6:00pm and be induced. I am only dialated to 1 cm (and not quite that) and effaced about 70%, so Dr. N thinks it will probably be a long labor. BUT, we should have a baby by tomorrow! YAY!

There are just so many emotions that I am feeling right now. In a way, this is very surreal. We can't wait to meet our little girl!!! Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated.
