T minus 11 days!

We just came from the doctor and she really didn't want us to go over our original due date of 11/15/08, so Brooke will be induced on the morning of 11/11/08!! That means we have ONE week to get everything done and there is an end in sight!

The exam today showed no further dialation but Brooke is now 80% effaced and Dominic's head is at a "0" station (which is typical for people already in labor!).We also had an ultrasound today to measure growth and he is estimated to weight 6 pounds 8 ounces right now. Looks like we will have a 7 lb baby! That's ok with me!! The NST test went fine as well-we will have another next week because of Brooke's ANA blood count levels due to her rheumatoid factor.

I'm not sure all this has sunk in yet--although Dominic is already a troublemaker so there is still a chance he'll arrive before Nov. 11th! YIKES!

Good Luck you two (soon to be three)! Go to a movie, out to dinner whatever, because in a few days, those things will be a distant memory!!! But trust me, it's worth it!!
