She is Coming

This will officially be my last post about being pregnant with Chloe. Tomorrow I am being induced. Tomorrow I will be a mom!

I had a very long doctors appointment this morning, so happy Clarke came with me to this one. I said that her movement hasn't been as consistent these past few days, although last night she was very active so I know she is fine. They did a stress test where they hooked me up to the monitors and that came out fine. They also did another ultrasound. I think this might have been my 7th ultrasound this pregnancy! Her weight was fine again. But the doctor said my amniotic fluid is really low and my placenta looks really old. Sometimes if the placenta gets too old it doesn't give the proper nutrients to the baby and that might be why her movement isn't as much as it was. Or it could be that I am just prone to anxiety and it's all in my head. Either way my doctor decided to go ahead and induce me since I am so close to my due date anyway. We check into the hospital tonight for meds to soften my cervix, I am only 2 cm dilated. I sleep with that and then in the morning they will induce me.

I am filled with many emotions right now. I have been wanting to go into labor for about 2 weeks now, so I am thrilled and excited to finally get to meet her! I am really nervous about giving birth, so many unknowns. But mostly I am excited. Next time I post it will be to say that she is finally here!! I can't wait!
