Well, I am doing all my last minute packing this morning. After DS1 gets out of preschool today we are making the 1 1/2 hour drive to Corvallis for my OB appt this afternoon. She is going to check me and strip my membranes. I really hope that does the trick and I am in L&D overnight but if not then she will induce me at 8am. I am hopeful that it will go well after that. I used my breast pump the night before last to stimulate contractions and I have been having quite a few non-painful ones ever since. I just hope they have been affecting my cervix! We will see this afternoon though. We will stay with friends in Corvallis and have a nice dinner with them tonight. My boys will stay with them while DH and I are in hospital. They are all very excited to spend time together and get to sleep over! My SIL is driving down from Portland tonight too and staying in Corvallis so she can be there with me in the morning. She was my labor coach with both my other boys so it is super important to me that she is there. I am of course super excited that it is almost time to meet baby Kai but as that reality sets in I am also getting pretty scared! My friend Emily from my Sept 07 board will update you gals.
