Katie's baby watch

Katie will be induced at 4 pm CST today...I'll update here so we can get info when Harper is born.

Update at 7:40 am:
At almost 6 am she was still a 1 but Harper has moved lower. She has the pit now and is just waiting.

Update 11:30 am:
She was almost a 2 at 8 am. They broke her water, put in an internal monitor and gave her pain meds. The baby is doing great but her BP went up and she tested positive for protein in her urine - so now she has pre-e.

Update - she's here!
Harper Helen!!*
Born 12/7/11 @ 5:43pm*
10lbs 1oz, 22.5in
We are in love!!!!

This isn't really a labor update but I was texting her and she is going for lunch and then heading in to L&D. So exciting!

Katie has had a dose of cytotec and will get another dose soon. Pitocin will start at 4 am. So far she is 1 cm and 70% effaced.

Good luck Katie!

That was my first thought - I can't believe the u/s was right!

She is really long too. I wonder how long you will get to use NB diapers and clothes Katie.

I can't wait to see more pictures!

I will be surprised if any of the NB stuff fits at 10lbs!!
