Today was my last prenatal appointment. I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has gone by. Today at my appointment, my blood pressure was up a little, but they said...oh, well...I'm delivering in the next few days anyways! I saw the Dr. for about 2 minutes! I heard the heartbeat again and then she gave me my instructions for Sunday! I am to go to the hospital between 9:00-10:00 PM and check in, get my IV and they will put some tablets in to start inducing me. Luke should be here sometime on Monday. I'm hoping that I'm not in labor all day!! Pray for us that everything goes smoothly!! I'm a big wimp!
I've decided to do a blog....I know...it's basically the same thing as the website. But, I think this one might be a little more user friendly. I will be posting everything here from now on! The following is the same post as the last one on the website.
I had another Dr. appt. today. I'm so tired of all of the appt....I just want this baby out!! I hadn't dialated anymore. The Dr. had first said she would induce me on Wed. night. I told her that I didn't want Luke to be born on Fri (which is Halloween) or on Sat (which is Colby's bday)....unless it happened naturally. So, she decided to have me come back on Thur. for another appt. If I haven't had him on my own by Sun, then she is going to induce me on Sun. night. So...it looks like Luke will be here on Mon (which just happens to be my parents anniversary!)...if not sooner! Keep checking for updates!!
I gave my notice at work today and told them that Friday would be my last day!! YEAH! I will be out for 6 weeks and then return for one week before Christmas vacation and then be off for another 2 weeks!! Keep watching for updates and pics of Luke. I can't wait for everyone to meet him!!
I'm originally from Okla. and moved to the DFW area in 1998 after graduating college. I have been teaching for the past 16 years! I have been blessed with my first baby...a boy on November 2, 2008! I'm looking forward to all of the joys and challenges that motherhood is going to bring into my life.
