Last Pregnancy Update

We had an apt. at the hospital at 1:00 today to see if she needed the prostaglandin (Prostin) gel to soften up her cervix. They did the same fetal non-stress test we had done a few weeks ago first. Noah Maxx is doing great. She had one solid contraction in the 45 minutes or so she was hooked up. Then the doc did a check and said she's at 2 cm and fully effaced, so the gel wasn't necessary.

So, we went and had some lunch, got a couple of last things from the grocery store, and now we wait. If her water breaks or she has real contractions at 5 min. apart we'll call and head on in to the hospital. Otherwise, we get there at 6:30 tomorrow morning to induce.

24 more hours - give or take. As we've said for months now, we just can't wait to see him.

The hospital room has wi-fi, so I'll do FB/Twitter updates when I can and try to put at least a short post up here once he's out and clean and all that good stuff.

We appreciate all the prayers and good wishes. Soon the real fun begins!!

Had to go through the prostaglandin (makes you really crampy) and then labor had to be induced. Hope you don't have to go that way. Good luck. I'm rooting for you!!!!
