Jacob Update

So I had my Doctor appointment today and we went over the ultrasound results from Monday. The good news is Baby Boy is doing GREAT! All of my non-stress tests have been awesome, baby moves so much and is very active. In the last month 1/2 I have only gained 1 pound. Which means I have only gained 20lbs this whole pregnancy! But Baby is growing awesomely (word?) He is measuring at 6lbs 8oz. He is head down, his head is really low, and I am now 1 1/2 cm dilated.

 The other good news? Well I am being INDUCED on the 28th of November. I will go in Monday night and hopefully have a baby by the end of Tuesday!

I know I was excited about doing things naturally, but this way Tyler can schedule his Paternity leave and His mom can schedule her flight and won't have to worry about someone being able to watch Lucy at a moments notice. This is only 5 days early, but he is already 61/2 lbs and there is still 3 weeks left... so they are just going to go ahead and induce labor to make sure he doesn't get REALLY big.

The bad news? well I have a test on the 2nd of December. BOO! School will be interesting, but thankfully all of my teachers have been pretty understanding so far, so I'm hoping they will all be on board with this and help me out.

Well... that's it!

We are excited for you guys! The countdown is official now...unless he decides to come a little earlier. Maybe six days early?
