Update

I had another doctor's appointment today, and while there weren't any new signs of physical progress, I did leave with an induction date! I am scheduled to be induced on Friday, May 16th if Parker hasn't arrived before. Though the protein levels in my urine were down, he still wanted to be cautious and deliver a week early so as to hopefully avoid toxemia developing right at the end. He says it's like my body is just trying to develop it, but it's been slow. So we'll keep watching for it, but things look good. Anyway, I'm excited about the 16th! I think it will be a great day to have a baby. It will allow for Joel's mom to be there when we're in the hospital because she won't be able to make the birth if it was in the middle of the week because of work. So that would be great! While I won't be terribly depressed if my baby comes right now, I am definitely now hoping that she holds on until the 16th...it will make a lot of things easier with planning, family traveling, etc. But I feel like she'll hang on until then. And I do have a few more things to get done around here! I had several random things to blog about, but my head is now spinning in tiredness and I don't know that I can construct one more sentence that makes sense. So you'll hear from me again soon. Depending on if and when my brain shows up.

Congratulations! Some of the spontaneity is taken out when you induce, but it sure can make life much more simple and easy to plan. I can't wait to meet her. You need to let all of us know how you feel about visitors, because I would love to come meet Parker in the hospital, but I can resist and respect your wishes if you prefer not to be totally overwhelmed in the hospital.

Yay for induction dates! Remember the day of Jonah's induction? We were laying out one last time, and we got kicked out of that apartment pool! Oh the days of laying in the sun for hours at a time... Post pics of sweet Parker as soon as she gets here! We'll be praying for you guys!
