Some last minute updates...

So we're set to get induced Friday morning at 8:30 a.m. - well, that's when I'm supposed to check into the hospital, so I'm assuming I won't get started on pitocin until around 9:30ish. The hospital has wi-fi so you know Damien and I will be updating as soon as anything exciting happens and hopefully we'll have a picture of baby no-name up here by Friday night.

I had my last ob appointment today and I'm 4 cm dilated with a "soft, squishy and quite ready to go cervix"- LOL, too much information? She said labor should be pretty straight forward with being so far along already. I walked into the hospital at 4 cm with Deacon too so I'm hoping for a similar experience (minus the big head and pushing for nearly 3 hours).

I'm having a lot of irregular but strong contractions- this has been going on since this weekend... they always get to 10 minutes apart and then stop. But at least they've gotten me to 4 cm! I can't complain :)

The past few days I've been STARVING- I seriously cannot eat enough. You would think this would cause weight gain, but it didn't, I'm holding my weight steady- same as last week.

I'm in relative disbelief that I'm having a baby in a couple of days... it STILL doesn't seem real to me at all. My mom gets here tomorrow and I'm really thankful for that- I'll feel so much better once she is here... I hate worrying about what we'll do with Deacon if I go into labor- as much as I'd love to go on my own, it's also something I'm hoping doesn't happen (at least until tomorrow afternoon).

So that's that... not sure if I'll be on here again until after the baby!
