Too much information post......

I had another baby appointment today! I am due this Saturday! Crazy. So great news I am 2 1/2 cm dialated 90 % effaced and my cervix is now "anterior" with Bryant at a station 0. Joy. Having my cervix checked wasn't like having a rod shoved up my butt this time (because it's anterior now) which I was grateful for. haha. (I warned you all this was a "too much information post"). Anyway, the best news of all is that I am being induced on Monday (if Labor & Delivery has enough room) because my Bishop's score was high enough. SWEET. It was interesting to watch Travis's face turn white when he realized he will have a kid on monday/tuesday. Pretty entertaining. It's the same terrified look he had on his face the day we got married. I don't think these things become real for guys until it is right about to happen. Whereas girls (or me at least) freak out for months ahead and then are pretty calm the day of.

Well I am excited & nervous all at the same time. I am actually more anxious about Travis finding a job he loves & is excited for then having a baby, but I am choosing not to freak out anymore and leaving it up to Heavenly Father that everything will work out the way it should. I don't think I have ever prayed so hard for something in my entire life!!

Anyway, Thanks for all of the wonderful encouraging comments. I'm not good at responding to most of them, but I love reading what everyone has to say! It really makes my day brighter.

I will post again if something happens this weekend!!

haha JK. You are farther along than me and I was due two weeks before u!!!! :)

I think it's so funny u have been showering night and day bc I have done the SAME thing the past two weeks. I have a two hour hair routine because of my fro and having to take the CHI to it.....so it's been quite the undertaking. Today, I gave up and didn't do it....watch me go into labor tonight! :) i just can't imagine going into labor smelling weird or having fro hair!

Where did Travis get a job!? I'm so glad!

I've been looking for news! Thanks for all the info.

My doctor told me to call the hospital at 5:00 AM the morning I was to be induced and when I called they seemed to think I was a little crazy and they said they were really busy, but I got in around 8AM so I don't know if it helped that I started calling them super early.

Ok, I know I'm a stalker because I am so excited for you guys that I have been checking your blog every day (no joke...sorry!) to see if you've had the baby yet! So, thank you for the up date and hallelujah for the inducement date. Is there anything you need still? Let me know! Good luck!f
