Its Almost Baby Time!
Here's the good news from my 38 week appointment... I am 3 cm dilated and 75% effaced...meaning that Rose could come at any minute! However, Dr. Shields was concerned about one thing. I generally have really low blood pressure, but today it was higher than it has ever been, I had protein in my TT (sorry...that sounds gross), and I have been having headaches and swelling during the past week. So, she sent me to the hospital to have some labwork done and if everything checks out OK, we are going to be induced MONDAY MORNING! I'll find out this afternoon if my bloodwork came back OK, and if not, we might have a baby as early as tomorrow. Clark and I are soooo excited. I am pumped, but at the same time I am freaking out just a little. Am I really going to have a baby in the next 5 days??!!! Oh my goodness!
