Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock

Well good and bad news...

Bad news: I'm still pregnant.
Good news: I have an induction scheduled.
Bad news: It's not until the 17th.
Good news: That's a day before my due date.
Bad news: My doctor thought I would have gone already so I've been planning on earlier.
Good news: I'm dilated almost to a 4 and really thin...says my doctor.
Bad news: That still doesn't give me any sort of indication of when this kid will come out.

This isn't a very fun game. I must need to learn a serious lesson in patience because I'm going crazy here.

Our child seems to be pretty large so far... here are his estimates:
37 wks: 7lb
38 wks: 7lb 11oz
39 wks: 7lb 14oz

I guess he's either slowing down his chubby eating habits, or the computers at the drs office are kind of off. We did use a different one this time than the last two times so hopefully it's accurate.

Hopefully he'll decide to come soon before my ankles explode!!

That's so exciting!! I hope everything goes well for you. And just a P.S. my dad is a PA (physicians assistant)and my OB with my first baby said you really can't get a very good estimate of how big or small a baby is while you're pregnant. I mean they can tell if they're too small or too big but to measure lb and oz is really really hard. So hopefully your baby is just right!
