It's BABY week!

Just a little pregnancy update...and a pretty exciting one. We are inducing this Friday, July 16th!! I will be exactly 39 weeks.

We check into the hospital Friday morning at 6:30 and things will get rolling about 7:30 am. I went to the doctor last Friday and I was already dilated to a 2. This is good, it should make the induction go more smoothly and lower the risk of me having a c-section. Now, my risk of having a c-section is just like everyone else who goes into labor. I am very happy about that for sure!

I'm not really nervous today about labor, it comes and goes. I just want her here safe. However, I am sure that I will have a hard time sleeping Thursday night and will be shaking nervous on the ride to the hospital Friday morning.

I cannot believe that in a few days Wes and I will be parents and we will have a daughter. We will call each other Mommy and Daddy. We will get to see what she looks like...whose eyes, nose, mouth and feet she has. We will get to hold her and kiss her and watch her sleep. I can't wait to hear her little cry. It is just so exciting to me.

Can't wait to see this sweet hurry up Friday!!
