38 Almost 39 weeks

Well, it's almost time. I can't wait! I want my boy! It's finally starting to hit me that I'm not going to be pregnant for much longer. I have doctor appointments every Tuesday now. At this last appointment. The doctor said I had opened up another cm! 2 cm down 8 more to go! I'm also just a little bit more effaced, so about 60%. Some people may think this is gross, but it was really exciting for me. When the doctor was checking me, she got to rub bubba boy's head. She felt my baby! How cool is that? We also talked about inducing me if it comes to that. The closer we get to the actual event the more say I feel like I want in it. Whereas before I was willing to go along with anything. Now I don't really want to be induced I want to experience being at home with Tony and timing the contractions and hurrying to the hospital and even trying it without pain meds. I highly doubt I'll do it without meds, but the thought is nice. I want to go on my own, but at the same time, I want my parents to have some good amount of time with us before they run off to New York. I don't know...as of right now the plan is that if I don't go into labor by my due date then we will induce the day after. I may change my mind and wait it out until he decides to come on his own. That's my thoughts. Hopefully he will come before those decisions need to become an issue.

Hang in there, Erin! You are going to have a great delivery and get to hold that sweet baby so very soon. Your family is in our prayers.

I have heard those same thoughts from just about every pregnant person I've ever known. I have a good friend who had to be induced because of her blood pressure being too high and she was devastated because she wanted to experience those labor things. I think as long as you keep your baby safe, whatever you choose is up to you. you're the mom.
