We're Having a Baby!

Well, Little Miss T has a birth date planned- December 7th, 2010! Unless of course she decides to come out on her own free will before then, that is.

The plan is to go in on Monday for one last OB appointment & make sure everything is still looking good, then report to labor & delivery at 5 a.m. (yikes!) to start the induction. I figure we'll have a baby somewhere around noon. Then I get to roll on over to the operating room & get my tubes tied, cut, burnt & sealed off! Yay!

At my appointment today my cervix was dilated a little bit more, and the baby is lower in my pelvis. My OB said she thinks I am very favorable for an induction & that it should go smoothly. *fingers crossed* I am just a tad bit nervous about being induced, but after weighing all the options & analyzing it to death, I think it really is the best option for everyone.

It's so weird to know that one week from now, this whole thing will be over & Baby T will here. It's been a fun ride, but I am more than ready to hand this little girl over to her parents.


  1. My birthday is the 8th. The 7th is Pearl Harbor and the 8th is also the birthday of Mary Queen of Scots. But with starting at 5am I doubt it'll last until the 8th.

    Congrats on finding the finish line. I can't believe it's December already and I have only a few weeks left!

  2. My little sister's birthday is the 7th :) And no, it will NOT last until the 8th, lol. I've had pitocin twice before and went from a 3 to complete in 6 hours, and a 5 to complete in less than 4 hours. I'm crossing my fingers that this one goes the same way.

  3. Yay!!! Congrats! You're almost there.

  4. Very cool! I'll be thinking of you. Can't wait for your birth story. You're going to do great!
