You Guys Rock!

Oh man, before I say anything else, I have to tell you all how much I love you! And *ahem* it's an entirely inappropriate amount - like way, way too much :)

Butterbean is not here yet - but will be shortly. Very shortly.

After spending hours in the prenatal assessment unit at the hospital yesterday for my never-ending migraine, they decided it had nothing to do with the pregnancy and sent me home. I had this migraine for 44 hours people. Forty-four hours! By the time we left the hospital I was in tears...blech.
Last night my blood pressure was crazy high, but I decided just to go to bed, since going in to the hospital wasn't getting me anywhere anyways, and I had a fitful night of sleep.

This morning though, they called me and asked me to come in for induction. Husband and I had the fastest showers ever, jumped in the car, and headed to the hospital. We spent 6 hours there today, me getting molested, baby getting monitored, and finally, getting the induction started.

Only thing is they gave me the slower acting stuff, to hopefully ease me into labour, and sent me home. It's a little frustrating, but okay too, because at least things are moving now, yay!

So now we wait.

Either for me to go into labour tonight, or if that doesn't happen, to get a phone call from the hospital again tomorrow morning, where they will have me go back in to stay and give me the harsher stuff. Oddly enough, I'm wondering if Butterbean might actually be born on their due date, which is Tuesday.

Anyhoosers, I've sent husband for a nap to try and get some extra rest for the next couple of days, but I'm all hopped up on adrenaline and can't sleep. Can't wait to be able to post with pictures and details of our beautiful baby! Yay!

And Happy Mother's Day to all the beautiful mommies out there!

Good Luck Ali!! You will never forget today. Butterbean will probably look angry. Babies always seem to be angry when they are induced like they were not ready to come out yet...

I can imagine how frustrating all this waiting is for you! I just have a feeling that the minute you're holding your beautiful bean in your arms, all this frustration will melt away. You're almost there!
