Belly update, 38 weeks!

Today was my 38 week appointment, and it just so happens, my final prenatal check-up! We discussed the possibility of an induction last week, and today it was decided for sure that I will be induced on Thursday! We are so excited... only three more days until we get to meet Owen! The rest of the appointment went well, I am about 80% effaced, but not dilated. Dr. B originally thought I was 1-2 cm dilated, but now that my cervix has moved into the correct position she realized that I'm only effacing. We were also put on the monitor again just to check Owen HR one last time, but only for a short time before the doctor said everything looked good. At the end of the appointment we were told to come back Thursday at 5:30 a.m. to get everything started. So it looks like Owen's birthday will be March 26th... we had said from the beginning that it would be March 27th, so we got pretty close!

Now, the final belly update! Thank goodness, I don't think my belly could stretch much more!
