Any day now

Pin It For anyone interested, here's a little baby update. Last Friday, I was dilated to 2 cm and 85% effaced. I have been having contractions off and on, maybe a couple each day. A couple of nights ago, I was up for 1 1/2 hours with regular contractions about 15 minutes apart, but then they went away. Anyway, an induction date was set for Monday the 21st, which is this coming Monday. This is the soonest my doctor will induce, at 39 weeks, or 7 days early. I officially could have been induced this Sunday, but Sunday is a day of rest, not labor! Anyway, this will be the birth day, unless baby decides to come sooner. Averie came 5 days early, Kempton 10 days. I know every pregnancy and delivery is different, but at least I know the longest I have to wait is 6 days! We are so excited to find out if this is a boy or girl. We have our emergency plans in place (Thanks Jared and Summer, and both Grandmas)! I got a new burst of energy this week and have been obsessively "nesting," I even insisted that we get our carpets cleaned today. Is this considered CRAZY? Poor Kempton has no idea what is about to happen, Averie is very excited to have a little sister (should be interesting if it's a boy), Cale is ready to have his wife back (he is pretty much the physical work horse around here lately), and I have a million thoughts running through my mind at any given time. The suspense is unbearable!

Oh happy day. Those last few days are almost unbearable, when you know the exact day of induction. We hope everything goes well. I will hope for a girl for Averie, since Kempton shouldn't really care, for now at least!
Love ya guys,
Denise
