So yesterday I had my 40 week checkup and I'm now dilated 2 cm and he's dropped. Dr. J said everything looked good and his heartbeat and my blood pressure were great. After my exam he said, ok so if Henry is not here by Tuesday we will go ahead and induce. I was like what!? That seems so soon! He laughed and said I'd be 6 days overdue!! Rationally I know this but it seems so fast and soon! Everything has just flown by!! I can't believe in 6 days or less I will finally be holding my son....MY son! I'm going to be a MOM....to a little boy!! It's so hard to wrap my head around yet so exciting all at the same time! I just can't believe it.
Today is my due date and I'm so hoping and praying that he comes before Tuesday. I would much rather just go into "baby mode" if my water breaks or I start having contractions rather than have to anticipate an induction. I don't think I will sleep Monday night! So....that's my news for now! Now we just have to wait! Please pray for Henry and me that we have a smooth and healthy delivery and that everything will go just the way it's supposed to. I will let you guys know something as soon as it happens! :)
