I went in for my 41 week check up today. The baby has not dropped and my cervix is still closed. I had contractions last night but they were apparently "false labor" because they completely stopped at 7:30 this morning. The doctor wanted me to induce today. We are going to wait and go in tomorrow at 7a.m.
I am bummed about being induced. This is not the way I wanted to go. The doctor told me this is best for the safety of the baby considering that I am already a week overdue. I don't know why my body isn't giving him up. All that matters is that Owen arrives safely. I can not wait to finally meet him.
The doctor said it should take about two full days to induce since we are starting at zero. Then I think they have to watch over the baby for a day or two. So...expect some baby pics by the end of the weekend.
