Destined for Inducement

I have officially run out of steam for almost everything, including, obviously updating the blog. At least there is nothing to report, so I don't feel too bad about this. I am also a little ashamed to admit that even though I feel the need to spend as much time with Caleb as possible in advance of the new baby, since Kenny arrived in the States I have been only too happy to let him spearhead the lion's share of taking care of Caleb. Luckily, Kenny loves time with Caleb and Caleb cannot get enough of his Dad so I don't think either of them is suffering or harboring resentment.

Tomorrow we are slated to arrive at the hospital (as early as 5:30 am - we won't know until they call letting us know there is a bed available) to induce this baby to make his appearance. I am packed and as ready as can be and we think we have a name picked out - or at least we're a lot closer than we've been. I've given Kenny a crash course in updating the blog and I think his technical abilities will allow him to at least post vital statistics and some photos. I've heard everyone's horror stories about going in to be induced and having to come back 2 and 3 times, but we are hoping for that not to be the case tomorrow.

So, cross your fingers and check back soon for, hopefully, news of a new baby and some pictures to boot.

Horror stories? I had to be induced for Jackson (water broke but no dialating) and it was fine. The petosin (sp?) did its job and Jackson came out just fine.

That is how it will happen for you too. Good luck!

I hope it is all done and you have a nice quick induction story by now!
