She's coming soon!

Like very. At my dr.'s appt on Thursday I was finally 1 cm dilated and my cervix was thinning out nicely. My dr. wanted to induce me next week, so basically it was "pick a day, you're going to be delivering the following morning!"

Well, knowing my stupid thing with numbers, I decided to be induced on Monday night (21st) for a Tuesday the 22nd delivery. The hospital could not accommodate this whatsoever (I guess a bunch of other pregnant broads had the same plan already) so they put me down for a Sunday night (ummm TONIGHT) induction with a Monday likely delivery.

Of course I freak out. My dr. ordered an u/s for me on Friday and she's measuring about 9 lbs, which is why they want to get her out already. She doesn't think it's looking too good for a vaginal delivery because of my size (I guess I'm not the walrus I think I am). But this is my best chance for trying, and she really feels it's best to get baby out ASAP.

All weekend I've been walking around like a crazed woman. I've taken stairs two at a time. I've eaten the spiciest foods I can get my hands on. I rubbed my nipples raw (bet you didn't know that was supposed to do something). I gave her a pep talk, and at one point begged her to just come out already. I got a pedicure and had the lady massage my ankles extensively. I even resorted to (gasp) sex with my husband. Nothing. If this baby is coming, she's coming on her terms, or ugh, the hospital's terms. I really hate the lack of control I have here. I suppose this is my first wake-up call for becoming a mommy. It's time I learn to relinquish control, because I'm fairly certain it's about to go right out the window anyway.

So, the bags are packed, the house is cleaned, and tonight at 6 p.m., it looks like we're checking in to the Ritz Carlton hospital to get this show on the road. I seriously cannot believe the time is coming for me to meet my little princess.

I just got chills after reading this and saying I'm so excited would be an understatement.

By the way... only you would be texting and Facebooking after your water broke and having contractions. I almost felt like I was there with you. Love you, Lex!
