Waiting

Well it seems it’s finally time. I didn’t realize how long it’s been until this afternoon, but we’re about to have a baby. Well not right now but in the morning they’re starting the induction. We went in this afternoon for our regular checkup and the doc looked at Ronna’s blood pressure numbers from this past week (we’ve been recording them) and decided it would be safest if we went ahead and scheduled an early induction. So we went across the street to Labor and Delivery at Baylor Dallas and got admitted. So now we’re in our room and waiting. The plan, as long as everything stays normal, is to start the induction around 3 tomorrow morning. They’ve started an IV drip with something to help keep the blood pressure down and they’re checking blood and urine for signs of stress to her vitals. The baby is moving and carrying on as he usually does. He had the hiccups earlier. His little heart is beating strong and fast and he’s doing just fine. So now we’re just waiting and I’ll keep everyone posted as soon as get more information. As I publish this I realize it’s midnight. See you in a few hours.

Just for Fun: According to the sonogram tech the baby is up to 9lbs 3oz but they admit that number runs a little high. My bet is 8lb 14oz. Comment on this post with the amount you think the baby will be when he comes out.

    Ronna looks amazing!! Glowing! And I love your lumberjack beard, Josh. I just can NOT believe that you’re having a baby. You’d think that in 8-9 months, I would have wrapped my brain around it but I just haven’t. I can’t wait to come down and see you, Ronna, and Sawyer.
