It's Settled!

So I just got back from my last doctor's appointment!

Pros: I've started dilating!! I'm about 1.5 cm...WHEW!
Head dropped further!
Still 50% effaced.
Scheduled induction for Monday (if I don't come on my own before of course).

Cons: Nope...can't think of any!

I can't even say how relieved I feel to have this all worked out! I realize the hard part is still ahead of me but at least now I feel calm, peaceful, and hopeful about it. I feel like maybe I can actually do this! Again, thank you all for your concern and has meant the world!

That's so good to hear Mikel! Isn't it weird to think that in just a few more days you'll be holding your baby! I'm excited for you. You will be in my thoughts!
