So for the past 5 weeks I have seen my doc every Monday to check my progress. To say that I was disappointed to have made it to this Monday's appointment is an understatement. My baby was due Sat, the 28th (which has come and gone). For the 3rd week in a row I am still at 1 cm so there has been no progress... but as the title to this entry states, "the end is in sight!" If I do not go into labor on my own, then I will be induced Friday morning at 6am, which means it is pretty likely that I will have a baby by this Saturday. I'm really hoping to go into labor on my own though. One of my concerns if we induce is if it increases the likely hood of having to have a C-section. My doctor says it does increase the risk slightly which is why he prefers not to induce. That is why he is going to give me the rest of the week instead of getting me in there tomorrow. This does make me happy to know that I will not be pregnant forever! I will keep you all posted if labor begins before Friday.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Mine was nice. My parents, Jamie & Jason, and my in-laws all came in town. We had a full house... oh, and I can't forget the 3 dogs. Everyone was hoping I would have the baby while they were here. No one really wanted to leave out of fear that the baby would come as soon as they were gone. It's nice to have to house quiet again so I can try to re-prepare myself for labor. We didn't really take many pictures because we were pretty lazy and didn't really get ready. And if you know my sister and I, we do not like to take pictures if our hair and makeup is not done. Here are a few that we did take.
