here we go......

so a turn of events has happened.  i had good plans to update this with the last few appointments, progress, etc.  miss berkley has other plans.  here is the cliff note version.  last friday i went to the dr for a routine appointment.  my blood pressure was a little high so they sent me to labor and delivery for observation.  after about 2 hours they sent me home for "3 days bedrest".  i went back to work on monday and blood pressure has been great all week.

today......went to dr at 1:30 just for a blood pressure check.  instead of going lower while i was there every 10 minutes, it ended up going higher........therefore, i'm at baylor once again.  this time they kept me and i'm here till miss thing arrives. i'm currently dilated to a 2 and 75% effaced......they are starting pitocin in the morning and we should have a baby tomorrow afternoon.  ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

i will have to say that its still very surreal at the moment.  were we completely ready? NO......was our bag completely packed? NO (brian is home now to grab some last minute things).....did i expect to have a baby this weekend......NO :)

we are so ready though.  i've had such a great pregnancy this far and i know she is ready to make her grand entrance.  on wednesday during a sonogram she weighed about 7 lbs 12 oz, so we will see how accurate they are in the morning.  the burning question with all the nurses here is what color hair she will have...........we'll know soon enough.

i will give updates as much as possible.....until then, we are going to try and get rest tonight and prepare for the big day tomorrow.  knowing berkley already, she will make sure her dad doesn't get to watch the tech game at 11.........
