New Year's Eve = Big News

I'm going in tonight to start being induced!!!!

My peri appt was this morning and to no surprise my bp was 152/108. I was 1cm dilated and 80% effaced. I was sent for another NST. They found 1+ protein in my urine and decided it was time to get this baby out!

I'm going back at 7 pm tonight and they will put cervidel (sp?) on my cervix to get it dilated even more. Then tomorrow, if I don't start labor on my own, they'll start me on pitocin. We're hoping for a speedy delivery (obviously) which would give us a New Year's Day Baby!!!! My brother's bday is today so we'll have this holiday surrounded. And plus, New Year's Day is sweetie pie Katie's (of The Happy Hours) birthday and I'm sure she wouldn't mind sharing it with EJ :)

So send me all the quick-delivery vibes you can spare!!!

In case you're wondering how I'm doing...I'm excited, happy, nervous, scared, nauseous, etc. all rolled up into one.

I just hope it doesn't hurt too much (LMAO)!
