Finally...

FINALLY!!! It was only a matter of time before we heard some good news...

Today, Meg had her 41 week appointment. They took us back to exam room 3...hooked her up to the monitors for a nonstress test. Avery was very active and looked great. Meg even had 3 minor contractions. Unfortunately Meg showed no progress in terms of dilation.

Are you ready for the good news??? The doctor said, "It's time."

We are scheduled to go to the hospital tonight at 6. There, we will be greeted by one of our favorite doctors. She will give Meg Cervidil to help ripen her cervix (and will hopefully calm Meg's nerves...she's good like that!)

Tomorrow morning another doc will come in to check Meg's progress. She will most likely break Meg's water and administer Pitocin.

Avery will hopefully be born on May 3rd and follow in the footsteps of her family (Meg-November 3, Uncle Eddie-October 3rd, Grandpop-September 3rd, Cousin Ryleigh-January 3rd)

As our dogs play on the floor and as we sit here watching TV, it's so exciting to think that we will soon be a family of 3!!!
