Baby Mac Monday - An Update You Won't Want to Miss!!!

Yes, click on the link! Read the post! You know you want to!!!

So, today we went and visited my doctor. We're 39 weeks along and it looks like it's finally time to meet Baby Mac!

Yes! It's TRUE! The time has come to see just how laborious labor really is... Yikes! Part of me is afraid of what could happen, the pain, having to be a responsible parent, blah blah blah. But another part of me is excited to finally meet Baby. I can say that even though I knew we'd be having Baby within the next week or so at most it is still kind of an emotional shock to realize it's really happening now. OMG!

Here's what happened today... We went in to the doctor to see how Baby is doing and see if I've progressed any. I am dilated to 2cm and 60% effaced so nothing too huge yet still moving along compared to last week. Baby is still looking good and I still have plenty of fluid in there which is good for Baby. However... My blood pressure was elevated and for the past week I've had these crazy headaches off and on. My doctor is worried that it could be preeclampsia so just to be safe I'll be getting induced. So, since we're going in to have the baby soon we have closed the baby pool. Here is where we stand:


It looks like there are a couple folks who could be really close to Baby's birth day and stats. Whoop whoop!

So if you have a moment and think of us say a prayer, light a candle, rub a Buddha, light some incense... Hopefully everything will go well and soon we'll have some happy Baby news and photos to share. Thanks to everyone who has been supportive. Make sure you're following our blog because that's where we'll be posting any photos and details later on. HUGS!!!
