The end WAS near.

Monday the hospital called and said to be ready to be called in between 7 a.m. and noon on Tuesday. Em came over and spent the night. I had all the laundry and dishes done. A meal was in the fridge for Em and Koby. We were all packed. I woke up at 5:45 and was all ready to go soon after. At 9:30 a.m. the hospital called and said there were 27...27 women in labor and there was no room for me. They said if I went into labor naturally they would have to stick me in an out-patient bed! ONLY IN UTAH...right?! And lucky me- Wednesday is my doctor's day off.

So here I sit, still pregnant.

I can't tell you how many times the nurse/hospital used the words..."It's called an ELECTED induction." Elected or not, James and I felt like kids that woke up on Christmas to find it cancelled without any promise that is would be rescheduled.

But hey! Today the hospital called and said tomorrow morning, 7 a.m., we get to head in for real.

Koby and I hit up the Bean Museum yesterday and the park today. We had a lot of fun just the two of us and I am grateful for that opportunity. I know it won't happen again for a little while.


3 days shy of 10 months (My sorry picture attempt)

Oh Megan! I'm so sorry!! That must have been awful to be all ready and excited and have it cancelled...27! That's INSANE! On a lighter note, thanks so much for posting this....#1 I set up my "elected induction" date today and I'm sooo glad I'm not the only one doing that. Sometimes I feel like everyone I know thinks being induced is of the devil. #2 Now I know not to get my hopes up, or at least try to! I hope your labor goes smoothly and can't wait to see pictures of your new addition!

That happened to us too! We were scheduled for an induction in the morning but they called and told me that all the rooms were full (it was Friday the 13th too...) but they were able to get us in that evening and we had him the next morning. it all worked out ok for us...i hope that all goes well for you!
