I'll pop back on later after I get some more sleep, but wanted to give you ladies an update.

Obvioulsy No Mark yet! I think he's just too comfy inside me at this point. I had my round of doc appointments yesterday afternoon. Both the high risk doc & regular OB. I'm now on modified bedrest, not able to go into work anymore, and the induction is set to begin Tuesday evening at 8pm. We're to report to the hosptial at 8pm that evening. So far, I don't have much cervix changes, very little dilation (still only a fingertip), and the doc said they'll begin that evening with something to start the dilation and get my cervix ready. Wednesday morning, he'll break my water and we go from there. I'd LOVE for him to come out on his own, but am also relieved to have a set date now. I'm so ready to meet him. As far as the bedrest, I was so tired at the appointment (actually fell asleep waiting for the doctor after the ultrasound & in the waiting rooms waiting for the appointments) - I can't remember exactly what she said but it was something about me having too many peaks showing in the bloodflow measurements and she could tell I was doing too much and on my feet too much. Said I had to rest as much as possible, keep off the feet (which were very swollen yesterday & my legs too). So, I'm here at home today. Tony has left for work and I'm going to catch some more zzzz's. I'm on the laptop currently already in bed with kitty curled up on my legs. She is still sticking very close to me lately.

So it looks like possibly a Cinco de Mayo baby.

I'll be back on later when I'm more awake.

A Cinco de Mayo baby sounds wonderful, Becky! However, if he was born before midnight on Tuesday, I am sure that you would not complain either.

Thanks ladies! I did follow orders today, and took it easy all day long. I obviously was more tired then I thought as I slept quite a bit in this morning, and then spent the day either in bed or on the couch. The swelling did go down. Yay!! DH called several times to check up on me, and the doc did as well. We're to call the hospital an hour before we go by 7pm to make sure they have a bed available. If they end up with alot of deliveries or emergencies, they'll have us come in at a later time if needed.

So for now, we just wait for Tuesday. I hope you all had a great Friday!

As far as Tuesday or Wednesday when we have things happening, we'll be texting Jess & Sam with updates (I won't wake them in the middle of the night though. ) and I'm sure they'll pass that along to you ladies for me.

Thanks, ladies in advance!!! I don't know how I survived all the time I was TTC and throughout this pregnancy without you all.
