Yesterday was kind of a scary day, I hadn’t felt the baby move for about 24 hours so I gave the doctor a call. I was sure they were just going to say to lie down for an hour and drink some water but instead they sent me straight over to Labor and Delivery. Darin came home early from work, and luckily there weren’t any problems but they monitored me for over an hour just to be safe. What a blessing it was to hear that sweet baby’s heartbeat! I cried when I heard it!! My wonderful sister was so nice to take Matthew with no notice, so I could go and even let Darin and me stay a little longer and enjoy a celebratory lunch!
Today I went in for my regular checkup and I am dilated to a 3, 80% effaced, and -1! The doctor said that I probably have another week left and I can be induced any time after the 18th if I want to. I can’t believe that we will have 2 kids in less than 2 weeks!! Wahoo!! I am soooo excited to meet this little girl!!
I LOVE hearing people’s guesses for when the baby will come! So far my brother Ben and sister in-law Kristy think 1-11-11, my mom and sister Heather are guessing 1-13, and my dad is guessing 1-15. So, when is your guess? You may even get a prize if you are the closest…but no guarantees! My guess is the 15th at 6:01am. (I think that would be a really fun day because then she could share her birthday with BOTH of her Grandpas!)
