Just for an update... Currently I'm 3 1/2 cm. dilated and 75% effaced... which apparently is pretty close I'm told. At this point, I'll believe it when I see it. The baby is very happy on the inside and has a lot of amniotic fluid and a healthy looking placenta. She's still moving around, which is a lot more visible from the outside.
We are scheduled for a "medically necessary" induction on Sunday with Dr. Ashby - our favorite - unless Baby Girl Schaab decides to come before then. Originally we thought I'd be induced on Friday, however, I guess it doesn't become medically necessary until Sunday - so SUNDAY it is. We don't know what time yet either, as the hospital will call patients starting at 6:30 a.m. telling them what time to come in. Dr. Ashby says though, once she schedules a medically necessary induction, they have to do it on that day... so Sunday might be it - however we'd welcome her anytime.
Since I started maternity leave on Monday I've been hanging out a lot with Mimi B and her buddies, including Wrigley and Uncle Caymus. Today I'm getting my nails done which is pretty exciting... and I'm going to continue to work on my online grad class to get ahead. Very exciting stuff! I never thought I'd be on leave without a baby!
I promise, once there's news that I'm in labor, we'll share.
As for now, no news is just that... no news.
