I'm having a baby!!!!

Today has been quite eventful. :) I went in for my normal routine check up- Monday his NST looked perfect and he was measuring right on track. (As far as my my belly measurements) I knew today would be the important one to check his fluids. When I went into the ultrasound the lady said his amniotic fluid was 7.2 ( a whole point more than it was last week) which I thought was fantastic!!! In fact next week is Jonny's family reunion in Vegas and he thought we would be going- I wasn't so sure. My appointment started at 10:30 this morning and I was on the ultrasound machine FOREVER- we couldn't get my little stinker to do more than wiggle a little. It's a timed test and usually his ultrasound he gets a score of 8/8. This one he got a 4/8 which is not so good. They did the NST again FOREVER hoping he would up his game and move for us the way they wanted- his heart rate was a little lower than normal as well. At about 1:30 Dr. Huish came in and said- well you may go to Vegas for your family reunion- but it will be with a baby in your arms!! WHAT?!!! YIKES! I didn't pack a bag or even flippen shower for the day...lovley! 


Baby Declan should be just fine- they just think at this point he will growing better on the outside than the inside. He weighed in at 4 pounds 11 ounces from what his measurements said- which are never totally accurate but we will see. Today was not what was expected...AT ALL. In fact I went home to pack a few things and all I could do was wander aimlessly around my house rather than get anything done I was so overwhelmed. I checked into the hospital around 2:00ish and am just NOW settling into the idea that I will be giving birth in the next few days to my son. I am obviously FORCING my body into labor so it will be a while- not dilated at all in fact. I got started on cervadill about a half hour ago to start labor slowly. They said it takes about 12 hours to kick in- so I am trying to settle into my new room here. After the initial panic faded I am now mostly excited to finally meet my baby boy. I get to see what he looks like- and kiss his teeny tiny cheeks! HOLY CRAP I am coming home with a baby!!!! He is gonna be tiny- but I know he's a fighter :) Send prayers please he is on his way!!!! :)
