We are scheduled to be induced tomorrow at 7:30. I am both nervous and excited... I can't imagine going 3 more weeks. I am so grateful they induce me at 37 weeks now! Pray for us!

Well, I knew it was inevitable with my special history of pregnancy, but I am officially on bed rest now. On Monday I got a betemethazine shot to help develop the babies lungs early. The only side effect to this shot is that your blood sugar increases a lot. Well, the reason this is a problem is because I was already borderline with having gestational diabetes. So, I had to start testing my blood. Well on Monday night I tested it and it was way to high. I wanted to do a kick count for the baby because she hadn't been moving that well, but because my blood sugar was too high I couldn't have any juice to make the baby get moving into action.
So I called the hospital and they said to come in. Well, as soon as I went in I actually went into labor. I was in labor from 9:00pm until 6:45am. I know the exact time because that is when I finally fell asleep. After we were able to stop it I was dialated to a 3. Well, They made me stay there for the whole next day to watch the contractions and my blood sugar. Tuesday night I started contracting again, but we were able to stop it in an hour. There are more boring details, but to cut the story I am now home on bedrest with bathroom priviliges. "Privileges" thanks doc! I am just taking medication to help my blood sugar and the contractions for another week and a half and then he will just let the baby come if she decides its time. So... if you are bored I am home, lets hang out!
