Just had my last NST

So today was my last appointment before my induction on Thursday. Everything still looks good. Still contracting, still have plenty of fluid, and baby is perfect. So all is going along without a hitch thus far.

My doctor came into the room and notices my contractions and says I'm not going to check you today because I don't want to know. Ha! She said if I want her to she will, but honestly I don't think I want to know either.

So the plan for Thursday remains the same. We will go in for 7 a.m. They will start me on my antibiotics. Apparently it will take 4 hours for that to be administered though. Once that first bag is in they will start the 2nd and break my water. Hopefully that will be enough and things will go as quickly as they did when I had the girls. The way I figure it the earliest we could have a baby is 2 p.m. on Thursday. Hoping I don't need any other help to get things going. My doctor said we could do a little pitocin with the antibiotics, but honestly I worry that things would go too quickly and I definitely wouldn't get enough of the antibiotics in before I have the baby. Least time spent in the special care nursery the better.

It's hard to believe this is all coming to an end. In some ways it feels like I just found out I was pregnant and in others this has just dragged on.
