39 weeks... today is the day!

Have a little bit of time this morning to post so here I am.
It's 4:43am right now. Woke up... well.. actually was waking up all night long. Figured it would happen so meh. Still sucks that I couldn't get in some good sleep heh.

To answer a question that was asked.

I'm being induced because of my gestational diabetes. The practice that I go to doesn't like for women with GD to go over their due date. I think my OB said that with GD, the placenta degrades quicker or something. Honestly a lot of info goes in one ear and out the other. Not one purpose, it's just the way my brain DOESN'T work when in a doc office lol.
Since this little lady isn't estimated to be huge, I was given the option of being induced closer to my due date or at 39w, and welp, here I am :D
With my weekly ultrasounds they made sure that she passed whatever they were looking for every time. And then that along with the weekly NSTs... lots of monitoring to make sure this little lady was ok :)

And nope, didn't see the story on the star wars room heh. That's awesome though!

Feeling a whole range of emotion here. Nerves have finally hit, well, maybe not nerves, just...  nervous excited. I'm really not nervous about labor, it's being a parent that makes me nervous lol.
DH & I have never really been around a baby much and it makes us both nervous that now... we're gonna be responsible for one! EEP! lol
I'm sure it's the same for any new parent though and we're gonna adjust quickly... hopefully :P

Alrighty, think that's about it before we head out. I'm sure we'll be leaving in about 10-20mins O_O
Gotta eat and drink as much as I can now before I'm not allowed to.

Will be back in a couple of days! Hopefully to share a great, positive birth story and show off some Zoe spammage :)

Hope all goes well and I am sure you are probably starting to feel the pitocin contractions. :) That is great that they won't break your bag of water till later on or on its own! The broke mine before they even started the pitocin to see if that would induce labor.

Can't wait to hear how it went and see spam of Zoe! T&P's for you today!
