41 Weeks

Monday was my Dr's appt to see if I had progressed at all, and if not, they'd set up a date for an induction. I hadn't really progressed at all so the nurse decided to hook me up to a monitor just to make sure everything was still working and baby girl was doing fine. Her heart rate went up every time she moved, so that was good. I didn't even realize it, but I was having small contractions while hooked up to the machine. It was nice to finally be able to tell what an actual contraction was and when it ended. After 30 minutes the nurses looked at the printed paper and decided that everything looked okay and she was still doing fine. The nurse told me she'd call me the next day after talking to the Dr. and they'd set up an induction date with the hospital. Yesterday I got the call and we decided on Thursday morning at 9am. So, about this time tomorrow I'll probably be in labor! We're so nervous and excited at the same time. I can't believe we'll be able to see her little face in a day or two! I already love her so much.

Here's a pic of her nursery finally done :) All it needs is a baby girl now.
