37 weeks and...WE ARE HAVING A BABY THIS WEEK!!!!



OH MY GOODNESS!!! We are so excited and so nervous!!! I wasn't supposed to have my weekly appt until Thursday but Chad is off today so I called Dr. H's office this morning to see if we could get in today and we were lucky!! Our appt was at 2pm but didn't see her until 3:15pm because she had to deliver a baby. So, we do the normal urine test and then Julie (the nurse) takes my weight and blood pressure. My BP is high at 140/90 but she says that the doc will probably want to take it again after she checks my cervix. We finally get to see Dr. H and I am dilated to 3cm and I am 80% effaced. At this point she isn't talking about inducing or anything of the such...she just tells me to let Julie check my BP again...so Julie checks my blood pressure and again it's high. So Dr. H says, "So, how to do feel about having a baby later this week?" WOW!! That just smacked us in the face! OF COURSE WE ARE READY!!! BRING IT ON!! TODAY IF THAT'S GOOD FOR YOU!!! ha! So she leaves us to call Labor and Delivery and comes back minutes later and says, "How about 7:30am Thursday morning?" WOW!!! We are still in shock and really cannot believe that we will have our precious Graham by this weekend. We are at home and our minds are just racing and we honestly just don't know what to do with ourselves. We are so excited and so nervous and so scatterbrained. But I'm glad that we were able to schedule it. SO.....that's the update!! I will do my best to try to stay in touch with everyone the best that I can but you just never know how hectic it will be. You guys can always call us and we will get in touch with you as soon as we can!
