Quick Post about Micah


So, here is the deal! We just moved in our house last Thursday and we love love love it! Although, it is still chaotic...we have some stuff left to do to get it completely ready. However...Micah's room was going to be my last project...that might have to change. Keep in mind that last Wednesday I was dilated .5 centimeters...which is great. Well, on Monday(ONLY FIVE DAYS LATER) I was dilated 2.5 cent and 60% thinned out...AND at a station zero(for which I have no idea what that means). The nurse practioner said IF I make it till my next appt. that they would schedule an induction for my 39th week. She was also freaking out about how low his head was. I was shocked! I am kind of laying low until my mom gets here on Sat. After that I am going to be making my rounds around the neighborhood to try to go into labor. I am having contractions(not just braxton hicks...real ones that are painful)...but they are not consistent. All of this is definitely different than what I went through with Parker. I was 2.5 cent. when I went in to have Parker 4 days early. This is all new to me! I hope I go into labor early...and I kind of think I will with the way I feel. At the same time...you NEVER know! This guy will come when he feels like it!
I have heard every story from "I was dilated the whole last month and still didn't go into labor early" to "wow! You won't make it past Sat". Let's just say...I like to hope I have him early...but completely get that it might not happen. One good thing that is for sure is that the more dilated I am...the less I have to go to get to 10 centimeters and that makes me one happy gal!

I am currently updating at my sister's house because we still don't have internet at home. We will get it Friday. We just got cable today! I will update again IF I make it until my next appt. which is Monday(I think I will).

For now...peace...

That is so exciting. A zero station is right in the middle of where you have to be in order to go into labor. It is either you have to be at a +3 or a -3 before you are completely ready. I think it is a -3. Anyway, I am so glad you got moved in and I am even more excited for what might happen in the next week! I pray that you get everything done, you want to get done! Wish I was there to help!
