It's Go Time (almost!)

I just got back from the doctor and am still reeling from what she said. She told me I was 7 cm dilated. She couldn't believe it herself. She said in 6 years she hadn't seen a person dilated as much as me and not in labor yet. She said that basically I am in labor and that the baby needs to come out! She used the word "impressive!"

Luke and I exchanged crazy-scared-excited looks, and she suggested that Thursday morning at 7:30, I get induced. I can't believe this time has come! It is so exciting and scary and amazing all at the same time!

Tomorrow I am taking the day off to relax and put my feet up. These were doctor's orders. I don't really know what to do with myself right now, but I know that my life is about to change forEVER....and I feel so unprepared.

My mind is racing with the what-ifs...the possibilities....the questions....but I know that we will be taking life as it comes and experiencing the most amazing gift of all--- giving life to our first child.

Max or Noelle, I hope you are ready for this world...ready to meet your crazy parents who will no-doubt mess up numerous times in your life. I hope you are ready to make a difference....to bring some good into this sometimes depressing universe. I hope we make you proud and always do the right thing for you. We love you so much already!

Updates to come!
