OB Appointment Week 40

April 26th, 2010

Well folks, this is it. Today was our due date and the little monster wasn’t budging at all. I had six straight hours of contractions last night, about 6-8 minutes apart, and then they just stopped. So frustrating!

We visited the doctor today and he’s going to induce us in the morning. We have to be at the hospital at 7:00 a.m. and should start the petocin around 8 or 8:30.

Tonight is so surreal I cannot put it in to words. I want to cry, throw up, laugh, sleep, clean the house – I don’t even know what to do with myself. Shelton is a ball of nerves in his own way – head buried in a laptop all night.

We’re surrounded by family tonight, with my brother and his wife here, Shelton’s mom and mine stopped by for a brief visit. We’ll be surrounded by even more tomorrow.

I feel like it’s my last night in Vegas and I’ve got an early flight so I might as well just stay up and make the most of the time I’ve got!
