Baby update...

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.

Im sorry its not happening the way you want it to go, but everything will be alright. Owen is just going to be one of those boys who needs a little encouragement ;) So just like most guys, I mean matt had no idea he wanted to date me until I told him he did ;)
I love you! Keep us posted as best you can.

good luck. hopefully the dr will be wrong about the two full days part. but hang in there, it's totally worth it.
