Some might not agree with the decision that Chris and I have made but we have decided to be induced if the little guy doesn't come before next Tuesday. We will be a little over 41 weeks and feel that it would be best to be induced. I know there might be complications associated with being induced but there are also problems that come with being over due. So we have an induction date of April 28th. We go into the hospital Monday night to begin our journey or I should say Toph's journey into this world.
We are still hoping he will come on his own in the next few days but if not we have a back-up plan. I never really wanted to think about or discuss being induced. I kept telling myself that he was going to come early or on time, but I kind of knew when I woke up each day feeling "to good" that he was going to be a little late. Even now sometimes I want to go to bed or wake up super uncomfortable and feeling crazy painful contractions . Never thought I would ever want to be uncomfortable or in pain but I know that is the only path that will lead to Toph coming.
At least we got a couple pictures out of today. The first photo is of us listening to Toph's heart beat. He is doing great, very active. He was moving the entire time we were at the doctor's office. The second photo is of Chris and I standing outside our doctor's office. We are hoping that the next time we are in this office is our 6 week check-up and we are holding a baby.
Other than no baby things are going great. My house is pretty clean since I have been nesting for weeks, our cupboards are packed, our bags are packed, Toph's bag and car seat are in the car. We are ready; well as ready as first time parents can be.
