Almost baby time!

The doctor reported to me today that I am dialated 3 cm!! She said she does not know why I have not gone in to labor!! But she said my body is ready for this baby to come out, so if he does not come this weekend, she will induce me on Monday!!! wow, all of a sudden, the impact is truly hitting me. Ready or not, in 4 days Graham will be here!! I was really hoping to avoid being induced, so please pray with me that labor will start naturally on its own this weekend. I am definitely feeling twinges and pain throughout my hips, so I'm not sure if anything is starting up or not, but we're hoping so!

Praying for you! I didn't want to be induced either, but God's way is always perfect. Rest in the comfort of knowing God knows how your labor and delivery will go. If you do get induced don't feel bad; get the epideral if you will be delivering in bed. If they will let you be up and walking you shouldn't need it. Can't wait to see pics. Let us know if you need anything!

Yay! SO exciting that the time is almost here!! My doctor told me the same thing at a Friday apt.- that I was dilated 3-4 cm and that she would be surprised if she didn't see me in the hospital that weekend. It was such great news to hear, even though I didn't feel like I would go into labor anytime soon. I went home and walked walked walked. THe next night labor started and ELliot was born several hours later!
I do hope that you avoid induction- esp with you being a little bit away from your actual due date still. We'll pray that you go into labor on your own before Monday!
