Baby Time!!!

Just got back from my appointment. I'm 4 cm dilated and doctor said I'm going to have this baby any minute :) Since my due date is Monday and he thinks I'm so close, he is going to put me in today. He will break my water around 5 o'clock which should put me in full blown labor (sorry if this is tmi..... I know all the other mommies out there would want to know though :) so I won't or shouldn't need pitocin or anything else to get things going. We are at home now, getting things squared away with the kids and getting our bags, then off we'll be. My doctor wants us there around 1:30ish so we will be leaving here around 1.

Please pray that all goes smoothly and that our little guy will be here soon with no complications. And also for strength as we leave the kids for a couple days. I always cry and this time I'm even more emotional with everything going on with Abbey. Thanks so very much and we'll keep you posted!!

So exciting - will be praying that all goes smoothly. I love the picture of your Mom and Jacob from your previous post - aren't Grandma's the best?! Looks like they'll be in great hands while you are missing them!

He's so cute! You are right, he does look like your other little cuties. That's so great that your friend was there to be your nurse. Glad all is well...can't believe you have FOUR kids now! You guys make good babies. :)
