False Alarm? Always Trust a Mother's Instict!

So, I had a little false alarm last night. I was having some mild cramps and thought it was maybe the beginning of labor! With Madison, I went to bed with a stomach ache/cramps and was in labor all night long. We went to the hospital early the next morning to have her.

Well, I thought things might work out the same with Logan. I straightened up the house last night, packed the baby's bag, and packed my clothes just in case. Well, the cramps ended and I actually got a good night's rest. I've had some mild cramps this morning as well and ended up laying down while Madison took her morning nap because I didn't feel that well. I was just so sure that I would be dilated when my OB checked me later on in the day.

We just got home from my OB appointment and I have great news! My Dr. said I am dilated to a good 2 and the baby's head is very far down. I am scheduled to induce Monday morning at 6am. (The docs are strongly encouraged to wait to 39 weeks before inducing. I'll be 39 weeks on Saturday and my Dr. is not on call this weekend.) My Dr. said I may not make it until Monday. I really don't think I will, but it's nice to know that I won't have to wait any longer.

So, my thoughts? I was dilated to a 2 whenever I arrived at the hospital to have Madison. My mom's second baby came a week early. I really think I'll go into labor in the next couple of days. Yes, I'm a thinker and planner and I'm trying to figure this all out. But, it's so fun to try to guess when this baby boy is going to come!

Oh, I'm so ready to meet him. Enough waiting already!

Yay!! David is on call this weekend. He'd love to help bring your little boy into the world! (Even if he is the guy who did weird stunts in the youth group as a kid - your mom told him that story and we got a big kick out of it!) Hang in there. It won't be long!!

Also - very cute picture from the beach!!
