Going to L&D in the am... updated! she's here. :)

Just got back home from my 40 week appointment a few minutes ago. I had an u/s to check baby's size and activity. The baby hasn't grown as much as the midwife-u/s tech would like to see. Only gained 1 1/2 lbs. since last u/s at 36 weeks, but baby's head measured the same size. She checked me and I'm 3 cm dilated and 80% effaced, so I'm going in early tomorrow to have my waters broke and we'll see from there how things go. I really wanted to go into labor on my own, naturally... If baby had grown more, she said she would be okay with letting me go until the beginning of next week, but just wants to make sure baby gets here healthy. I have been having random contractions off and on for the past day and a half already and some of them today have been a lot stronger than before. So, please send me any labor vibes/prayers you have for tomorrow... I really don't want to have to be put on pitocin tomorrow. And I'm a little nervous... On the other hand, it will be nice to just go to the hospital and have a baby without sitting around waiting for it to happen.

Good luck tomorrow! Here's hoping that once your water is broke that things pick up and go nice and quick and all is well! KUP if you can!

Got to the hospital early. My water broke on it's own around 3:00 am and contractions started getting stronger after that. Was almost a 5 when first checked. Things are going well.
