39 weeks: It's really going to happen...

So, as of yesterday's appointment the baby has dropped lower into position, I'm 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced! Our doctor just found out that she has to have shoulder surgery on the if we want her to deliver the baby, something has to happen by the due date (Sunday,June 14th) or I will have to be induced that Monday or Tuesday. Hard to say which we would prefer, being induced with our doctor or letting things get started on their own with a stranger...hopefully we won't have to choose! She seemed pretty confident that things would happen by the due date, though, so that's good.

All of a sudden, it's hitting us that this is really going to happen...and soon. So much so that I didn't sleep a wink last night, I was too keyed up...which made for a pretty miserable day today. We've got a busy weekend planned...maybe our last child-less one ever! Just looking forward to spending time with friends and enjoying some quiet time at home before the excitement begins.

Kate, I'm so excited for the two of you! Can't wait to see pictures. The more relaxed you are on the 'final' day, the easier and faster the baby will come! Good luck, Barb
