Induction it is! Tomorrow morning at 7:30 a.m. Julie will begin induction and sometime tomorrow we will be parents!
The doctor decided to induce based on the fact that the baby has not been moving down. For the last couple weeks he has been stuck at the -3 station. She said that if the baby doesn’t move down, Julie will be at high risk for a c-section… so bringing on labor is a last effort to get the little guy to come down. If it doesn’t work, then they’re taking him out with a knife and a shovel (that’s how I like to imagine c-sections… I’m sure I’ll be disappointed!). Either way, tomorrow I’ll be a dad!
I’m kind of glad… the doc said that if the baby had been at a more normal station she would have made us wait it out.
Our baby will be one of the rare few that is actually born on his due date!
Wish us luck… I’ll post some pictures and details as soon as we get home. Until then, take care! Thanks to everyone who has supported us and cheered us on up to this point! You guys are great!
See you soon!
