I made it to 39 weeks on Friday and had my check up today. And guess what?! NOTHING! I went from "almost 1 cm" to "slightly more than 1 cm". What is wrong with this kid?? I was focusing very hard on not getting my hopes up and I guess it's a good thing I did! I was having contractions all day Saturday, Saturday night, and into Sunday morning. They started about 30 minutes apart and by Sunday they had gotten down to 15 minutes apart. And I was getting a little excited. They weren't painful, just noticeable and occasionally just a tad uncomfortable. I took a nap and when I woke up Sunday afternoon they had stopped. And they never came back! And obviously they didn't get much work done. The doctor is going ahead a scheduling my induction for next Friday, the 29th. I have to go in for another checkup Tuesday and if I haven't made any more progress by then I'll have to go to the hospital Thursday night for a little cervix ripening. Sounds fun! At least we know he'll be here by then!
Here is a fun, albeit blurry, picture of Scott and the kids (Abby wasn't home that night)
And this will be little Owen's baptism outfit. Isn't it adorable?!
