It's getting closer...

If I don't go into labor before, then I will be induced on Monday. At my doctor appointment on Wednesday I was dilated to a 3 and 75% effaced, but that doesn't really mean anything for me. I have been started with all three of my kids and with Arianne and Ellie I was dilated to a four before being started, so I have no reason to believe that I will go into labor before Monday, although I have been trying really hard. The other day I mowed our lawn, washed the tub, and went on a two mile walk while chasing after my girls on their bike and scooter, but the only outcome was my inability to move later that night, because my hips were in so much pain.

Annie,
That sounds exactly like my situation with both of my girls, that is why I didn't pack my hospital bags until the night before. Good luck on Monday, looking forward to seeing pictures of her!

Good luck with everything! I didn't go natural with Cannon - was induced and that's how I want this next baby to be. I like knowing when the baby is going to come. I like having it all planned out. I wasn't nervous with a day set, and I slept really well the night before. Hope everything turns out well and you have a smooth labor. Did you decide on a name yet?
