Updates & I'M TAGGED!

First, I figured I'd better give an update on my ever expanding belly! When I went into my doctors appointment on Monday, sadly I was only at a 1 and not effaced. I was hoping to be induced when my mom got here (Wednesday) and before my doctor went out of town this weekend. My doctor said it wasn't a good idea to induce when I wasn't "ready" so I'd just have to hang out. Well, on Monday evening I started having some contractions and feeling sick to my stomach accompanied with some other "stuff" and I thought I had the flu. So when I wasn't feeling any better and my contractions had stopped, we called the hospital just to see what they had to say. Pretty much they wanted me to come in and check me out. Sadly, I was still at a 1 and not effaced but I was having regular contractions while I was there. So, they sent me home. Last night was the night from hell and slept only a few hours. While I didn't have many contractions, my back was killing me. I've had a lot of back pain this pregnancy, but last night it was bad. After 2 hot showers, a bath and walking around my house, it was finally morning. My doctor called and said I could come in around 5pm to get checked again if I wanted so I waited all day in misery and went in to see him tonight. So I'm finally at a 2 and I can be induced! I'm so glad to see and end in sight! I don't know how people labor like this! It's been awful! So, my mom will be here tomorrow and I'm set to be induced bright and early on Thursday morning. I'm bringing a lap top so I'll post pictures ASAP. I can't wait!
